OK, here’s a kindertrauma that’s a bit different than most. In the ‘80s there was a poster that I saw in a couple of Deck the Walls shops that freaked me the hell out. I believe the artwork was also showcased in Omni magazine (RIP) as well.
The painting was of a horned, green, lizard-like creature wearing a human mask and (if memory serves me right) reading a storybook to some unsuspecting children. It was painted in a hyper-real, neo-surrealistic style very close to Michael Parkes’ style. In fact, it may be a Michael Parkes since many of his paintings were being sold as posters at that time. Unfortunately, after weeks of searching I’ve been unable to locate this masterpiece of lurking terror.
Anyone remember this painting/poster?
