Once again the spectacular art work of Graham Humphrey for Fright Fest 2016

 

The largest genre event in the UK, HORROR CHANNEL’S FRIGHT FEST 2016 is headed our way soon. Once again artist Graham Humphrey has created a nice piece of work that was inspired by the festival’s move to Shepherd’s Bush.  This years event takes place between August 25th and August 29th. Check out the artwork ahead and read a few words directly from the artist himself.

Horror Channel FrightFest is delighted to present Graham Humphrey’s stunning artwork for this year’s annual Bank Holiday event, the UK’s largest celebration of genre cinema, taking place at the Vue Shepherd’s Bush, between Thurs Aug 25 & Mon Aug 29.

The relocation to Shepherd’s Bush was the inspiration behind the concept.

As Graham explains: “This year’s relocation suggested the idea of a floating cinema that can move through the city. Going west, I took it all the way to Louisiana, as portrayed in the film ‘Southern Comfort’. reimagining London as a swampland.

I took my cues from a variety of sources; the ‘feu follet’ (will-o’-the-wisp) are mentioned in George Washington Cable’s short story ‘Jean-ah Poquelin’, the paddle steamer was inspired by the work of Mark Twain and the skulls from the script of Orson Welles’ unmade ‘Heart Of Darkness’. There’s also a nod to Hertzog’s ‘Fitzcarraldo’. The witch house I added for extra Scooby-Doo points!”

Graham’s large-format, hard-cover, book ‘Drawing Blood’ is currently available to buy from
