Accidental Artwork

Well, not the art itself. That clearly wasn’t an accident. But my finding it was.

Someone had sent this picture:

Tin Tin vs the Alien

Tin Tin vs the Alien! How cool is that?

Well, I wanted to know whose work it was so that I could blog it here in the proper manner (“proper” meaning to give credit where credit is due). My Googlish search led me to a place called Studio Space (though the site URL “hangedmanstudio” is a nice alternative). It’s a blogspot owned by Malcolm McClinton, an artist whose illustrative work graces book covers, magazines and assorted genre markets.

To my delight I found that I liked the rest of his work, too — and that he has painted some excellent giant monsters and zombies. I asked him if I could put a few up here and he said I could. So take a look (click on the images to see the full-size versions) and then go visit his Studio.

Giant Monsters

Rampaging Robot

Malcolm says he painted this Rampaging Robot as an exercise in perspective. It looks like a poster waiting for a film to promote!

Tentacles in Morocco

This is the cover art for a book called Secrets of Morocco, published by Chaosium. I think the book is an extension volume for the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game. Anyway, it seems that Malcolm likes tentacles.

Organic Space ship

While, strictly speaking, not a giant monster, this Organic spaceship might as well be!

Dragon in Pellucidar



Zombie Love

This somewhat deliciously unnerving piece is an illustration for a story titled “Zombie Love Song”, published in Polluto magazine.

Pallid Light

And this is the cover artwork for a zombie novel titled Pallid Light (Elder Sign Press).

    Wow! The illustration for Zombie Love Song is one of the coolest zombie pics I’ve ever seen. Must see more…

    You surprise me, Chuck. I never would’ve expected you to like that one… [irony]
