To celebrate the launch of Graham Humphreys’ ‘Drawing Blood‘ book and exhibition, we’re giving away five pairs of tickets to the official private launch which will be followed by an afterparty at 8.30pm with musical entertainment from the legendary English punk band Spizzenergi and psychontronic dj El Diabolik, set to the backdrop of Graham Humphrey’s original artwork from critically acclaimed horror films including ‘A Nightmare on Elmstreet’ and ‘The Evil Dead’ offering a truly immersive experience into the most celebrated horror films of the genre.

The launch will take place at 6.30pm at Proud Camden, London on Wednesday 28th October 2015.

Renowned British illustrator Graham Humphreys was at the forefront of a cultural shift that the genre experienced in the 1980s, as special effects finally caught up with the gory imaginings of horror fans and film makers. Behind the most renowned promotional material for cult horror films, Humphreys’ unique and distinctive mixture of rich, colourful artistry and the lurid phantasms he conjures up with wit, skill and imagination, transgress the boundaries between the imaginary and real.

The luxury collector book, limited to 500 copies and with contributions by celebrated director Sam Rami; author, journalist and critic Kim Newman and The Damned’s guitarist Brian James, will launch alongside a landmark exhibition of the same name at Proud Camden showcasing the original artwork of Humphreys’ extensive back catalogue of exceptional and highly valued artwork.

Proud Galleries is thrilled to present this magnum opus of one of today’s the most influential horror film artists, as they bring you an inside look into the most celebrated films of the genre with this extraordinary anthology by the last master of horror art.

The exhibition of Humphreys’ work will take place at The Horse Hospital, Stables Market, London from 29th October – 22nd November 2015 from 11am to 5pm and is free entry.

Bat

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill
