Space Vampire!

From the darkest depths of the universe, where it's always nighttime, comes... Space Vampire!

A quick little vector drawing, based on a doodle I did during a meeting. Don't worry, I can doodle and listen at the same time.

Originally I drew him with light green skin, but it didn't go very well with the other colors, so I changed it to a pale blue. I like the high contrast provided by the bright red cape.

I briefly considered calling this one "Alien Vampire," since I just did a "Space Accountant" drawing, but that just didn't have as good a rhythm as "Space Vampire."

This is a vector drawing, drawn all in InDesign. The text was hand drawn.

Here's the meeting sketch I did. Nothing much changed in the final drawing, with the exception of the markings on his forehead. I have no idea what that was about or what I was thinking when I drew it, so I opted to leave them out in the final.


  1. I like the aspect ratio of this and some of your other Poster-Style illos. How far away from stars does he have to fly, to keep from turning to dust ?

  2. Wow that red cape pops right off the screen! Well done!! Alien and vampire, interesting premise for a movie :)

  3. Lysdexicuss: Good question! I think KW once did a vampire comic where he pointed out that the light from every star in the galaxy would eventually reach Earth, and all vampires would burst into flame!

    Dawn: Thanks! They did sort of a space vampire movie back in the 1980s. It was called "Lifeforce." It was about aliens that sucked the life force out of you, rather than blood.

  4. I saw Lifeforce on the big screen and that naked Vampire chick was va-va-vooom without the need for Viagra !

  5. I'd like a Halloween mask of his head. It should be about 1 1/2 feet tall to scale properly. Get busy.

  6. KW: I think you're thinking of the dimensions of MY gian noggin.

  7. Bob: Don't give KW any ideas. He might go Hannibal Lecktor on yer ass !
