Classic Monster Art!
I am a major sucker for artwork that focuses on the classic Universal monsters so no one should be surprised that I love this piece. Painted by 24 year old Canadian artist Fiona Staples its a brilliant take on the old 'Dogs Playing Poker' image that has amused me (and fans of absurd art) for decades. Done as the wraparound cover for a book I think this might be just the thing to get me to buy it right off the bookstore shelf.
