Horror Classics - Pin-Ups with a Twist. #1. Freda Krueger

My favorite month of the year - October - is fast approaching!
Along side the pumpkin spice, changing foliage and autumn-scented breeze... the temperatures will be in the 80s (I no longer have to change out of sweaty clothes 3x a day), Halloween is right around the corner and TV stations are airing all the horror classics 24/7 for the entire month.
As a tribute to the season, I decided to design a series honoring the horror classics of my generation - with a twist - the antagonists of each franchise will be depicted as mid-century pin-up girls. the original set will embody the essence of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Halloween, Saw, Hellraiser, Silent Hill, and the Evil Dead.
Each will be painted in acrylics on a 40x30inch canvas or larger - I'll be making limited signed and numbered prints available in the very near future. (I'll disclose the dates and location on my company, Troublefish, social media channels: facebook, twitter, and Instagram).
Introducing, Freda Krueger - inspired by the late Wes Craven's Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. I completed this one on the day of Wes Craven's passing, my he rest in peace.
