Bram Stoker's Dracula
Charcoal, Contè, Pastel on Toned Paper
8.5 x 11

“I was dead set on this version of Dracula. It remains one of my favorite films…an elegant, morbid, sexually-charged love story. Gary Oldman shape-shifts into all the old world creatures in vampire lore. The demonic werewolf shown briefly by flashes of lighting during a storm was powerful as hell- I wanted a longer look at that terrifying animal…” -Aimée (for an interview about this piece)
