Mark Owen
I was born and still live on the island city of Portsmouth, England. I studied at the Portsmouth College of Art & F.E. in the early 1980’s. In the 1990’s, I exhibited watercolour paintings for several one-man shows, specialising in landscapes, seascapes and animals. It is only in the last few years that I decided to take up portraiture and combined it with my love for vintage horror, sci-fi films and everything featuring Boris Karloff. I put aside the travelling watercolour painting set and taught myself to draw with marker pens and paint with acrylics. My most important project to date was creating the cover art for the Night of the Living Dead digitally remastered CD soundtrack “They Won’t Stay Dead. My artwork can be followed at: email:

Dean Ormston
Dean Ormston
Dean Ormston is professional artist based in the U.K artist known mainly for his dark expressive work in comics for companies such as D.C COMICS, DARK HORSE, 2000AD Reviews of his art include 'it's hard to describe why Ormston's art always looks slightly creepy; maybe it's his skilful use of shadow, or an innate sense to make everything just a little off-kilter' and 'Ormston can make a sunny day in flower filled meadow seem unsettling and filled with menace' His art style was shaped through a childhood spent watching classic horror movies and reading Famous Monsters which also led to him becoming a huge Boris Karloff fan. Here are a few painted sketches, done in preparation for a series of oil paintings. Dean can be contacted at [gallery columns="2" link="file" ids="1246,1247,1248,1249"]
