Farewell, Bernie Wrightson

Filed Under: 

Legendary artist Bernie Wrightson has passed away. I first discovered his work as a child reading Swamp Thing, and then as a teenager I fell in love with his seminal illustrated version of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. He also did concept art for the film adaptation of Stephen King's The Mist, as seen here. Currently WrightsonArt.com / BernieWrigtson.com is under heavy load for obvious reasons, but it is well worth visiting and exploring.
