One of my early introductions to Monsters.
I have made others too which are self explanatory...
You can kind of get a sense of the size of one of these badboys. 20 feet or so. We have made many in our 4 years but this is the only one I have a pic of hanging outside our cafe.
We have also made these....
I love the Jack Davis Wolfman I put up. This image was in almost every comic I read in the eighties. So I threw a little love his way with a giant manta!
This one the newspaper designed for us. They did a good job too. A hodgepodge of everything.
They are hard to make out but we got two of them on each side of the windows done during our first year.
These are two billboards we made in our first year as well. You may notice the bottom one has a striking similarity to....
YEAH! It is the Famous Monsters Speak record. Had this as a lad but I HAD to steal the image in making my boards. They are down right now as $400 a month was a little too much but we WILL do more again in the future.
So that is it! I hope to design another Manta real soon and I´ll post a pic of it hanging on Monster Cafe! With Halloween this year I am going to do a retro Manta with the old timey seventies goodness Beistle cutout images.
