The Outing (B)
October 1987 - click 'previous' to see the (A) version

"When I did the original version, which is the one with the subtle monster in the background, it was used for the one sheet.  See that the monster is there.  The trees are his shoulders, the clouds his head and his eyes are there, no claws though. A little later the producers wished for the monster to be more prevalent so I added the monster in fuller rendering with his claws to the original painting.  It is the same piece only changed.  Each was printed and used as the release poster.  So they had two versions from the same piece of art. Note that the boy in the piece is actually the same person twice.  It is my son as the boy and a couple of his friends from school who posed for me.  As for me, I'm always the monster.
