The man behind the iconic Frightfest characters, Graham Humphrey has revealed his latest creation for Frightfest 2015.
Graham explains: “While I was looking for a theme for this year’s poster, I ran with the idea of Magic. At a recent visit to the incredible Cinema Museum in Kennington (one of my favourite haunts) I was admiring their extensive collection, among which I noticed a number of Victorian ‘Magic Lanterns’.
This formed the basis if my concept, the idea of magical projection through one of these exotic devices. Running with the theme, I took the application of Aleister Crowley’s ‘Magik’ rituals and placed our regular FrightFest monster posed in the distinctive manner of one of the best known photographs of ‘The Beast’.
Using the projection device, a legion of demons is unleashed, surround by magical symbols. They – just as we will – are enjoying the shared spectacle generated by the satanic lamp.”
