On Sunday I uploaded my tenth painting time lapse video to my YouTube series Vid-O-Rama which celebrates movies that we rented from the video shop back in the 80's and 90's.
I only started this project back in August and I am enjoying the process immensely and the response I have received thus far has been very positive and gratifying.
As I hope to have both this blog and the channel run parallel I thought I would create a mini playlist on here, a sort of 'catchup' telly listing thing if you will... Watch them all on a Sunday if you like, the get the full omnibus experience.
1) Tribute: Gentlemen of Horror
A time-lapse of painting done as a tribute to Vincent Price, John Carradine, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing whose work I have always admired half tribute to the House of the Long Shadows and half tribute to the now seemingly lost tradition of the late night movie.
2) Frankenhooker (1990)
One of my all time favourite horror comedies, directed by Frank Henenlotter. Loosely inspired by Mary Shelley's novel, the film stars James Lorinz and former Penthouse Pet Patty Mullen as the Frankenhooker! Side note: Patty Mullen loved the painting!
3) Tribute: MonsterVision's Friday the 13th Marathon hosted by Joe Bob Briggs
On Halloween 1998 Joe Bob Briggs presented a Friday the 13th Marathon on his Monstervision show showing parts 1,2,3,5 and 6 this painting serves as a tribute to both him, Monstervision and the Friday the 13th series for that matter
4) Chopping Mall (1986)
This time we celebrated Chopping Mall starring Kelli Maroney, Barbara Crampton , Tony O'Dell, John Terlesky, Russell Todd, Karrie Emerson, Suzee Slater, Nick Segal and Dick Miller. Co-written and directed by Jim Wynorski who gave it his full endorsement!
5) Tribute: The Troma Tribute Painting Part 2
Not only was this devoted to The Toxic Avenger Part 2 and Class of Nuke 'Em Hight part 3 but it was also created to great join up with my previous Lloyd Kaufman/ Troma tribute painting from 2019!
6) Halloween 3: Season of the Witch (1982)
A Halloween special commemorating the horribly overlooked third film in the franchise staring Tom Atkins, Stacey Nelkin and Dan O'Herlihy directed by Tommy Lee Wallace!
7) Robocop (1987)
Dedicated to one of my all time favourite movies of all time, Robocop directed by Paul Verhoeven staring Peter Weller, Nancy Allen, Dan O'Herlihy, Kurtwood Smith, Miguel Ferrer, and Ronny Cox. With a special cameo by a robot and a cyborg!
8) Gremlins (1984)

9) The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs Pt. 1
I recently painted a portrait for issue #5 of the Joe Bob Briggs Fanzine and documented the process this piece featuring the movies played on the show between 29th March to 26th April 2019. The movies being, C.H.U.D. Castle Freak, Q: Winged Serpent, Society, Deathgasm, The Changeling, Madman, Wolfguy: Enraged Lycanthrope and Demon Wind.
10) The Astro-Zombies (1868)
The Grind House classic from 1968, Astro-Zombies was written, directed and produced by the great Ted V. Mikels starring John Carradine, Wendell Corey, and Tura Satana! Granting me with an excuse to paint Tura Satana again!
