EYE ON EBAY: KEN KELLY VAMPIRE ART


When I think of Ken Kelly's art, his sword & sorcery work most often comes to mind. But, like most imaginative artists, his work covers numerous genres, including an occasional foray into the world of monster magazines.

Offered back in February on eBay was an original that he painted for the cover of FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND #124 (April 1975) depicting the mexican film star German Robles in his role as EL VAMPIRO (The Vampire).

The painting is in oil on stretched canvas with the dimensions of 19" x 25" (large for an FM cover painting -- Gogos usually worked smaller, as did Bama for his Aurora monster model box art!). The price tag? A "Buy it Now" price of $4,000.
