1,2, Freddy's Coming for You.....

I decided to do a painting of my personal favorite, and quite possibly the greatest horror movie icon ever created, Freddy Kruger.I admit its a bit ironic for me to be painting this guy, mostly because he scared the absolute piss out of me as a kid. I have very vivid memories of running from my grandmothers living room with my eyes shut because the commercial for "the dream master" just clicked on in the middle of me watching nick at nite. i also remember avoiding my living room for the entire time my dad had "Freddy's Dead" checked out from the video store. I couldn't even look at the box without getting genuinely scared. Long story short, as i got older i got over my fear of Mr. Kruger and now i cant get enough of the guy. I recently went to see the remake of the original with Jackie Earl Haley taking on the iconic role; and though he can never touch Robert Englund, he did a good job. More importantly it inspired me to do this painting paying homage to the original Springwood terror. hope you dig it

The Nightmare on Elm St movie had such an impact, just as much as the 1st Alien film and Jaws. I love a good horror film and this painting makes me think back and also makes me feel so old :-) Great painting!
