Zombies, mummys, werewolves, vampires, ghouls and of course his legendary Frankenstein monster have made Bernie Wrightson the undisputed household name associated with illustrating the macabre. His brilliant and uncanny knowledge of anatomy is depicted in every illustration, carefully composed and intricately rendered on every page.


The MONSTERS – COLOR THE CREATURE BOOK, released in 1974, ¬†feature 16 incredible B/W drawings by Bernie Wrightson. Its this book, along with Wrightson’s “A Look Back” where I became hooked on anatomy. When it came to inventing anatomical form, Bernie Wrightson, just like Michelangelo, made invented forms absolutely real. When I design for films or fun, Wrightson’s illustrations are always near for silent, inspirational guidance.
