Jack Davis’ Monster Rally album cover up for auction


Jack Davis is one of the best artists of the moment. A favorite of mine, his style lent itself to so many different character types and projects. As a monster fan, however, this is one of the coolest pieces I’ve ever seen. Made as the album cover for Monster Rally, an album of Halloween monster songs, there are all kinds of classic monsters and Easter eggs on this cover. Observe the character by his signature, for example. Taking offers right now for this is Heritage auctions, part of a lovely epic art auction. This, to me, is one of the centerpieces of the whole thing. Currently session at $4600, this is one of those auctions I have to talk about for BC that makes me wish I was rich. Check out the goodness from Jack Davis below.

Jack Davis draws a whole monster

“Jack Davis Monster Rally LSP-1923 LP album cover painting (RCA Victor, 1959). FURIOUSJack Davis, of , has had a long and successful career providing artwork for album covers. This collection of Halloween “monster songs” was a huge hit and enjoyed by many. Note in the image the “Purple People-Eater” at the bottom center. A rather suspicious mouse in the lower left by the signature of Jack Davis. Created in opaque watercolor on illustration board over graphite with a 19″ x 19″ image area. The painting is lightly tinted, with some minor staining in the corners. In very good conditions.”

I have been looking at the illustrations above for a long time and I keep finding new things in them. I’m so sad that I never own it. Guess I’ll have to find a copy of the album. To go here to get more information about the work and make an offer. While you’re at it, check out all the artwork deals today.
