Canada resident LEE HOWARD is an artist and self-described monster-maker, who uses his paint brushes to venerate those things that instill fear. “I love horror and horror-themed art,” he says. “Portrait painting is my favourite. People’s faces are the most interesting thing in the world for me to paint”.
When not painting, Lee devotes his time to other kinds of nightmares, notably his line of horror-art-toys called “QUIET ROOM BEARS”. These furry frightening fuzzballs have gained quite a cult following, even acquiring their own Facebook fan page.
For Valentine’s Day, Lee created a few new horror/Simpsons mash-up paintings. First up is the “MY BLOODY VALENTINE MINER”, a 12X16 inch poster that melds The Simpson’s Valentine’s Day episode where Ralph Wiggum gets the ‘I Choo Choo Choose You’ card from Lisa Simpson, with George Mihalka’s cult horror classic. This piece sells for $25 (CDN) and ships in a sturdy poster tube.
Lee also mashed-up CANDYMAN in his “Let’s BEE Friends” Valentine’s Day card that Lisa Simpson gave to Ralph Wiggum. This original 14X18 inch acrylic painting is done on a gallery style canvas and shows off a spitting image of TONY TODD in costume.
