Zacherley's Centennial


My new portrait of the legendary TV horror host Zacherley, "the Cool Ghoul" is based on a small black & white postcard image I created 
in the mid-1980's for collector Glenn Bray,  and included in my book Warts & All. FILMFAX magazine commissioned a new color version for the cover 
of their fall 2018 issue, #152, to commemorate Zacherley's centennial. The issue hits the stands on Oct 10th.

My article "Drawn to Monsters", featuring new portraits of Boris Karloff, 
Bela Lugosi, Tor Johnson, George Zucco and Lon Chaney Jr., among 
others, is also included in the issue. Zach almost lived long enough (98) to attend his own celebration.



The entire uncropped Image is availble as a large, high quality signed print (25 have been made), 
by ordering here:
