Francesco Francavilla's 31 Days of Halloween

Posted by The Daily Zombies Saturday, October 26, 2013

This Halloween... Brace yourself as Italian artist Francesco Francavilla unleashes all of his thirty-one impressive tribute art for classic horror films in one go to commemorate All Hallows' Eve! 

Being huge fans of awesome graphic works, we have chronicled the works of Francesco Francavilla here at The Daily Zombies more frequent than we care to remember. Just in time to commemorate All Hallows' Eve, we take a retrospective look at one of the Italian artist's most intriguing project as he took on a classic horror film each evening of October, leading to an awesome finale.

Head over to Francesco's site to check out the truly astoundingly gorgeous Halloween motion card featuring all 31 days worth of art as a skeleton watches the television. With each fleeting title card, the artwork charges on from every classic horror films the likes of Nosferatu, The Mummy, and The Creature From The Black Lagoon.

Here are some of the pieces featured.

On to more recent news of the artist, Francesco recently proved to be a friend indeed as he dug into his vault to pull out a old piece on Frankenstein for auction to aid Steven Niles, whom house in Austin was badly affected by flash floods last month.

From the words of the artist himself:

Hey guys,

As some of you might know, my dear friend Steve Niles and his partner Monica Richards have suffered some devastating damage to their house in Austin last week due to flash floods.
The damage was so heavy that Steve and Monica had to relocate to temporary housing while they figure out what can be done to salvage the house (and their goods).

Steve has always been the first to jump into action when someone else needed help (both among peeps of the industry or national tragedies like last year's hurricane SANDY), so it's the right thing for all of us to help him out now that he is the one in need.

For this reason I decided to auction this artwork from my personal vault: the Creature of Frankenstein is a favorite of Steve's and a personal favorite of mine, so I thought it would be fitting to put this up for grabs.
This piece was done for Comic Twart and it's the very first "TWART" art I am putting on sale/auction. It's for a good cause so it needed something special.

Original artwork is fully inked on 9x12" bristol board.
If you're interested, please type your bid in the comments feature. Bidding starts at $200 and goes up in $5 (or multiple of 5) increments.

Bidding will end at 3pm EST (that's 12pm for the west-coasters) tomorrow, Sat, Oct 26, 2013.

Highest bidder* gets the art and I will be sending the money raised to Steve to help him with his recovery efforts.
I'm also covering the shipping cost for the winner. 
This is a great chance to donate to a good cause and get some nice art in the process.
