The Films of Vincent Price

This started out as just a portrait of Vincent Price, since after posting an older portrait of him it occurred to me I didn't really have a "proper" portrait of the actor, someone whom I've always admired.

So I put a nice close-up of Mr. Price's face in a sea of black, but at some point it morphed into this image--I'm not exactly sure what The Films of Vincent Price is--is it a book cover, a movie poster, a DVD insert?

I don't know, I just kind of worked on this until I liked how it looked--the rough edges vaguely remind of the posters for all those Edgar Allen Poe adaptations Price appeared in, and that's good enough for me!

(By the way--among the films listed from Price's filmography are The Abominable Dr. Phibes, Confessions Of An Opium Eater, Edward Scissorhands, Last Man on Earth, The Oblong Box, and Witchfinder General)
