Monster Squad Art, Part 1

10710926_10152738966882328_5146327273773526587_nI thought it would be fun to showcase some of my favorite Monster Squad-themed art on the weekends this month, and who better to kick it off with other than a couple of seriously cool dudes who I am so happy to have originals of hanging in Branded HQ (not these pieces, but plenty of others.)  First up are some amazing sketches by one of my favorite comic book artists, Dan Schoening (of IDW’s Ghostbusters comics.)

MS Sketches Dan Schoening

I really love Dan’s eye for detail and the way he filters likenesses though his dynamic style.  If you get a chance, pick up his collected Ghostbusters comics work, you won’t be sorry!  Dan is also doing a really cool Halloween Countdown with monsters and creatures on post-it notes all month long!

Next we have one of the nicest folks I’ve ever met online, the awesome Christopher Tupa!

Chris’ whimsey and his ability to tap into the wonder of childhood is unrivaled!  He is also participating in the Countdown to Halloween this year via his instagram account, check it out!

Now for today’s Trading card!

Monster Squad Wrapper

Since there was never any MS merchandise produced, specifically a Topps trading card set, I thought it would be fun to make a mini set of 80s-style digital trading cards for my favorite movie of all time. So come back each evening for Trick or Treats and collect them all!

Today’s card is #28, The Squad is formed!
