Amazing FM Montage

You have to check out this amazing FM cover montage by Stephen Morrison! I'll let Steve give you a little background.

"I've been playing around with it on and off for awhile now, a tweak here, a small change there. Then it just sort of grew and like Dr. Frankenstein's creation, took on a life of it's own. It's still a work in progress, with hundreds of parts and pieces the combination and arrangement possibilites are almost unlimited. All the images are taken from FMOF covers, except the "4SJ Of Karloffornia" sign being heldup, that one came from a photo of Uncle Forry holding the sign he had taken down after his move to the mini Ackermansion. It probably (won't) appeal to the "purists", because I have altered many of the images, changing an expression a bit, mixing the hands from one image with another image, things like that. I tried to inject a little humor along the way. It was a lot of fun, and I was sometimes surprised how the image from one cover seemed almost made to interact with the image from another cover."

Because of Blogger's size restrictions you'll have to download the huge 18MB file, here.


  1. As my daughter is wont to say -- 'That's a crack up!"

    Beautiful work, and it's got that wonderful trick of offering more detail the more you look at it.

    Rip Off

  2. Check out the eyes. A lot of them aren't looking in the same direction as the original art.
