BASIL GOGOS TRIBUTE GALLERY


As reported here at MONSTER MAGAZINE WORLD yesterday, Basil Gogos, the great pop culture artist and illustrator has passed away. Gogos was most noted for his cover paintings for FAMOUS MONSTERS OF FILMLAND magazine. His first cover assignment was for FM #9 (Nov 1960), where he continued the style of previous cover artist, Albert Neutzel, only blowing out the chromatic chart by employing layer upon layer of vivid colors. The technique was perfect for this type of magazine as exemplified by many of the 
following images.

A great artist gone but his works will live on forever.

He will certainly not be forgotten here at MMW.
