    Terry Beatty Scary Monsters Magazine #31 Wraparound Cover Original Art (Druktenis Publ., 1999). Fine portraiture on a large scale, here, from a special Boris Karloff issue of the long-running magazine. Beatty is working in actual size, as shown in an accompanying copy of the published front cover. The image shows Karloff in character from such films as Son of Frankenstein, Black Sabbath, Black Friday, The Walking Dead, The Mask of Fu Manchu, The Mummy, The Black Cat, and The Raven. A seldom-seen side of an artist more generally known as a comic-book cartoonist-realist (as in the Ms. Tree detective comics). Opaque watercolor (drybrush technique) on illustration board. Signed at lower right of matted array. Image area, 27" x 10.25", matted to 32" x 16.5". Excellent condition.
