Home Grown Gorilla

I recently had the good fortune of becoming acquainted with illustrator Glen Mullaly at a local flea market when he stopped to thumb through my table of oddities. Glen's a very friendly and agreeable fellow whose style is reminiscent of classic children's books and 50's/60's magazine illustrations. As if his terrific abilities with ink and lead were not enough to win my admiration, Mr. Mullaly sent me the photo and accompanying newspaper clipping below. I have yet to pry his mask making secrets out of him but I am pretty damn impressed with his award winning Halloween creation from 1981 (that's his sis on the right).
