Nightmare on One Sheet: The Horror Art of Graham Humphries by Graham Humphries and Rob Zombie
Hardcover – Korero – November 2023 – 175 pages
Following on from Hung, Drawn and Executed, this second volume showcasing the work of Graham Humphreys contains almost 100 new paintings, many of them created during the pandemic.
With home entertainment playing such a crucial role during the Covid years, Graham found himself busier than ever and with increased focus. From Blu-ray reissues to soundtrack LP covers, and book jackets to private commissions, this new work is among the artist’s best yet. Classic horror, independent films, and reimaginings of cult movie posters, it’s all here!
All the work featured was painted in the traditional medium of gouache on watercolor paper, using techniques that Graham has refined over his 42 years as a professional illustrator. The book’s title is a nod to the marketing of the famous movie franchise in which Graham was involved.
