Horror Ink Sketches

As part of our Halloween countdown, we’re posting one new ink sketch every day until even after the 31st. Miguel is inspired by classic monsters and created a few of his own.

Nosferatu the Father Of All Horror Movies

“Vampires have not always been so appealing. The first major movie Dracula, and still the one most capable of producing nightmares, appears in F. W. Murnau’s 1922 silent film, “Nosferatu: A Symphony of Horror.” As Nosferatu (or the Undead), Max Schreck looks positively ratlike. He has a bald head, pointy ears, elongated hands with clawlike nails and two conspicuous fangs where his front teeth should be. His pasty-white coffin pallor hints at too many days out of the sun, and he walks stiff-armed and hunched over, like an animal not quite used to standing on his hind legs. This guy is no cutie face.
