More old crapola...




I know there’s an Elephant Man admirer or two here so I thought I’d post this. After seeing the film on cable TV in 1981 or 82, I became obsessed with it…for whatever reason…And I went nuts making a number o grotesque Elephant Man drawings colored with crayons. This one item I made, a crude construction paper booklet called “Tomb of Tumors”, which was inspired by a D & D module called “Tomb of Horrors.” Also: This D&D book, was also one of my favorites, and had a shitload of really cool b&w Trampier art…

What a weird & awesome crossover.

a kid I used to dress as John (Joesph) Merrick, putting a pillow case over my head and leaving the pillow inside at the back of my skull. Then I'd limp around the house making slurping noises.
