Scumdance Art Preview: Scum of the Silver Screen

At this point, you could throw a severed toe and hit someone talking about the Sundance Film Festival. And while many film fans from all over are getting ready for said festival, which hits off this Friday, Jan 18th, there’s another little event going in Salt Lake City called Scumdancecelebrating “the villainous scum of the silver screen”. The art show will be at the Blonde Grizzly Gallery which will feature over 100 new paintings and drawings of some of our favorite horror monsters that lurk in the dark.

Art by Alex Pardee, Dave Correia, Matt Ritchie,Skinner, Robert Bowen, Jon Wayshak, Vic Back and Austen Stanton will all on be on display. I’ve included a bit of a preview for the upcoming show below and be sure to head over to Blonde Grizzly for more information and art!

If you are ever attacked by a gorilla just sit back and relax while you enjoy the once in a life time feeling of your limbs being ripped off.

  1. These illustrations are all amazing…but I admit I am not sure who some of these characters are. 🙂

    Who is that at the top next to Jason? He looks like that gossiping Rabbi on Seinfeld. lol. And the one after him with the collar and chain?

    And the spider alien with the upside-down face?

    And the bug-eyed skeleton?

    I recognize the others, and am especially impressed with the Predator drawing. That Predator alien is one of the most impressive and thoroughly-thought-out villains in all of cinema – and the original 1987 “Predator” was a masterpiece. I don’t care what anyone says. The script was immaculately written; it wasn’t just some lame military vs. aliens cheesy over-the-top horror, or action flick. It felt more like a serious take on the question “What if this really happened?” and they treated the material as such.
