Artist's Description

“The conceived by my version of a classic board game I would buy glossy, if they eventually really come into the trade.” Well, so much for automatic translations. Harrumph – yes, I would definitely buy a version of “Monopoly” that nods to horror film classics, but for the time being a shirt visualizing the idea will have to do, I guess. Speaking about time, it took me almost four years to get from the idea to a printable and, I should hope, convincing design. Actually, I came up with a few first designs rather quickly, but the approach to draw a board complete with lots of tiny little houses never worked out – as, I am sure, you can imagine.Following that, I lost interest in the project for a while. And then another while. And then an even longer while. Then, quite recently, the idea to mash-up a board game classic with a handful of horror film classics crossed my mind, again, and I once again put pen to paper. The result is a design that subtly hints at the idea of a special edition of a beloved board game classic, in which the design of houses and hotels would follow that of famous (or, if you will, infamous) haunted houses featured in horror film classics such as “Shining” and “The Amityville Horror”. And while Norman Bates’ iconic repose is not exactly a spook house, it seemd an obvious choice for me nevertheless. The Freeling family home from “Poltergeist” and, of course, the mansion of the Addams Family were suitable options, too, but you have to draw a line somwhere (pun intended). Well – how do you feel about a special horror film tribute edition of “Monopoly”? Can you imagine buying, for instance, a hotel on Elm Street? Well, I can – and I’d love to have a version like that for a nice game of “Monopoly” on Halloween!
