Robert Taylor
Robert Taylor
Robert Taylor is a retired librarian/lifelong reader, writer, and collector who lives in rural Indiana. He is presently co-authoring a mystery novel and teaching enrichment classes for retired people at the University of Cincinnati in Ohio. The courses he has moderated include "Kings of Comedy" (film comedians 1910-1945), "Classic Horrors" (films and actors 1910-1960), and "The Butler Did It" (classic suspense films, 1930-1960). Mr. Taylor has written articles for "Monster Bash" magazine and for a couple cyber-zines. A lifelong fan of classic films, he began corresponding with silent film actors and actresses in the late 1960s--and later with the stars of talkies. This began a long, happy period spent getting to know the people whose images were so memorably preserved on celluloid, whose shadows were thrown on the screen for our entertainment. Among his correspondents were Lillian Gish and Eddie Quillan, Leatrice Joy Gilbert and Lloyd Nolan. As the years passed and as opportunity presented itself, Mr. Taylor was able to meet some of his correspondents. He dined with Myrna Loy, had Cesar Romero come to his home for lunch, and he had an unforgettable conversation with John Carradine. And once, while visiting Los Angeles in his teens, he had a distant figure pointed out to him, an elderly, bent man leaning on a cane--his hero, Boris Karloff. Robert Taylor studied art under Elizabeth Peyton for three years as a teenager, but is otherwise self-taught. He does artwork only for his own amusement. "I leave it to the truly talented," he says, "the others whose work is represented in this gallery. My pen and ink is in lofty company here! I feel honored to have been asked to include any of my work." Robert Taylor can be contacted at: taylorro@nalu.net. Frankenstein3

Joshua Toritto
Joshua is an artist who has received his education through the Perkins Center of the Arts.  As he finds most modern cartoons and portraits to be somewhat lacking in the simplicity or humor that their predecessors possessed, Joshua’s overall style and feel to each piece, in a sense, serves as a means of remedying this, yet still exhibit a unique, rawer look about them.  Joshua hopes that by creating such artwork, he fills all those who look upon it with a simple joy and nostalgia for art of yesteryear.

Dominic Tucci
Dominick Tucci has been an accomplished professional illustrator for many years, specializing in caricature and cartoon art. He attended the Joe Kubert School of cartoon and graphic arts, graduating in 1992. He is currently an instructor at the school as well as illustrating for numerous editorial, publishing, and advertising clients. He also is commissioned to produce personalized caricature art for private clientele. If interested, you can contact Dominick at Caricatuci@aol.com A huge influence and inspiration for him has always been monster movies, especially FRANKENSTEIN & the other original universal monster films. Although present makeup and special effects are so much more advanced than films of that era, that beautiful moodiness & atmosphere will never be duplicated or the actors, especially Boris Karloff, that portrayed those wonderfully creepy and fascinating characters. It is a huge honor for Dominick to work with Sara Karloff and Karloff Enterprises and artistically pay tribute to the great BORIS KARLOFF! [gallery link="file" ids="756,757,755"]
