It Conquered The World

Movie posters and paper back book covers were my art museums when I was growing up and since I loved monster movies I became a practiced illustrator at drawing the cinematic beasties. Decades later I am STILL doing it. This conical Venusian was from a movie made in 1956 and was basically a commie from Venus and special effects man Paul Blaisdel designed the creature with a crimson color....(See....he's a "red"...get it? ) I did this artwork about fifteen years ago and, like a lot of stuff I do on lazy Saturdays, it was just done for my own amusement.

Acrylics on stretched canvas at 18 x 24. (I have included the poster art from '56 by Albert Khalis so you can see that the monster was just as silly in the movie as it is in my painting. I love these types of critters )

Fun, I like how the monster and the girl have the same blue eyes (it's are a lot more blood shot. At least it looks that way on my screen.)

I'm With You, Woody! Those posters influence me still. As do those junky, campy, ridiculous movies. This is Excellent work - Of course, I could barely get past that bright green sweater...

Red face Re: It Conquered The World

All I remember about "It Conquered the World" was that the creature looked like a giant anise plant. Why it would want women as its slaves I had no idea. I burn with shame to state that even I, horndog teenager that I was, totally missed Beverly Garland's star turn.

Re: It Conquered The World

I love those movies, I remember the first time I saw this one, I must have been about six. I had a red stuffed dog that I would pretend was this monster.

Another great one!

She was such a good actress that she could take the crappiest dialogue and make it work...

Reminds me of what the late Carrie Fisher said about George Lucas' scripts: "You can write this stuff but you can't say it."


ETA: e.g. "Darth Vader! Only you could be so bold!"
