The theme selected for week two-thirty-three will be: The Monster Squad.

Monster Squad

On one summer night in 1988, I was sleeping over at a friends house. We watched The Monster Squad on HBO, and stayed up late playing the first Castlevania. The two complemented each other perfectly.

80’s nostalgia is all the rage, and what better time to think about the Monster Squad, especially since there may be a Shane Black reboot. Goonies and Stand By Me get all most of the attention when it comes to 80’s adolescent adventure tales, but The Monster Squad has always been one of my all time favorites. It’s got all the classic Universal Monsters, Stan Winston did the creature effects, including on of my all time favorite versions of The Wolfman and a fantastic Creature from the Black Lagoon. And it was the 8o’s so the soundtrack was pretty cheesetastic, but totally in a good way.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: The Monster Squad.

All art work is due 9 P.M. PST on Friday, 8.26.16. Submissions will be published the weekend of 8.27.16
