Long Lost Creature

So it's been 18 years this wonderful piece of artwork has been hanging on my wall and I finally found an old scan I had of it. Call me lazy but I really don't want to take the whole frame apart and re-scan it so you're stuck with this...or until Steve Bissette kindly asks me for a real good scan. Then I'll carefully take it apart. So the history on this was that I asked Steve for a nice commission piece of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, one of my all-time favorite monsters and also one of Steve's. Well it took a few months and and I cornered Steve at a convention and he had it with him. For $50 I was expecting a nice B&W or greywash piece. What I got was this amazing color piece done in markers, color dyes and silver marker. Stunning and I think my jaw hit the ground when I walked away with it.
A great story to go along with an amazing piece.

Oh, hell yes!

When I was a kid, I loved the Creature. Me and my pals would faithfully scan the TV Guide waiting to see when any of the movies were going to air.
