Monster Week – Kirk Fights the Gorn

I don’t know what it is about monsters but they sure are fun to draw. Am I right? My favorite are probably movie monsters I’m not talking about the CG monsters in today’s movies, they’re great and all, but there’s just something about a guy in a mask. I don’t know, I love em. Especially the ones from the 50s and 60s. They were just real enough so you could tell what they were suppose to be but dopey enough so that they weren’t scary. I guess it’s the hokeyness.

Star Trek was great at that. I mean Jim Kirk fighting the Gorn, come on is there a better scene than that? The old Kirk double fisted punch or the karate chop knockout blow to the neck, that is good as it gets. Anyhow Monster Week at Bob Ostrom studio is just about over but if you want to see more like this come visit me over at Instagram. See you there monster lovers.

Next up? Science week!
