I Eat Birds of Paradise for Breakfast...

I did this piece back in September of 2010, and for whatever reason, I never got around to posting it. Probably busy thinking of other things (like Halloween) at the time. It was right around 'back to school' time, and I was feeling the need to watch 'Blood of Dracula', a fun, 1950's teenage vampire flick. In fact they probably just could have called it, 'I was a Teenage Vampire'. I had been wanting to draw the character Nancy, turned vampire for awhile, so here she is! AND, here is the trailer:


  1. COoL! I don't remember watching that one. Recently, I watched some old Hammer Films: The Horror of Dracula, Dracula Has Risen From The Grave, and Dracula A.D. 1972. All starring Christopher Lee as you probably well know.

  2. Nice! An obscure picture, to be sure. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the original title of this flick was "I Was a Teenaged Vampire", as this obviously followed in the wake of "I was a Teenage Werewolf" and "Teenage Frankenstein"! Fun little movie, and your art captures the lead character quite well. Great job!

  3. Thank you!
    Oh, yes Lee, I know the Hammer films well.
    Gil, it is a fun little movie. I have quite a fondness for it.
