"Horror Icon," c.2013, was created with pen/ink, on 16" x 20" canvas board and is a tribute to one of my all-time horror heroes and master of disguises, Mr. Lon Chaney, Sr. When I saw his part in the film as the, "Phantom of the Opera," I was a young boy and his look gave me the creeps and has always stayed in my mind as a horrifying face to have to look at...but it is great for Halloween!!

WOW!! This is wonderful and perfect for Halloween! The whole piece tells the story and with the mediums you used....it give it that authentic look and feel of the horror classic. Wonderful!!!

Artist Reply: Natalie: Thanks for your generous feedback! It was the black and white image of him stepping out onto the landing that frightened me for years as a child. Lon Chaney truly was a master of disguise and created such creepy characters...so in my mind, I had to set this image free...so, now we are all scared! lol Hope all is well!

Mark: love the complexity of the piece and the little bit of color you applied to this amazing pen and ink piece. Congratulations. Best regards, Will

Artist Reply: Will: Thanks for the fantastic feedback! I new some people would enjoy this piece, since it is near Halloween. I really tried to tell the Phantom's story in this one, so it took a lot of detail and the bit of color reminds me that everything in life is not all black and white,...life has color to it and I didn't want anyone to think I have forgotten this!!
