Mistress of Horror Sketch Set

On Friday 10 Feb 2012 I got my 5 card set of Elvira Sketch Cards for $3.99 FREE Shipping. The artist is Matthew Parmenter Ebay ID Monster-Art-World in Ohio. He seems to specialize in Horror.

The cards in in full color and are on photo stock/quality paper, the backs are clean and blank. The toploaders were taped at the top and two of them held two "cards" back to back. For all I know this guy could be just scanning his sketches and printing onto 2.5 x 3.5 photo stock cards in huge numbers. I don't care though I got this set because I really loved the look and the subject matter. When I first saw the auction for them there were only two maybe three of them I was really excited about now its more like 4 out of the 5.

Some internet searching lead me to some of the promo pictures that were used as a model for the sketches. This site snarkerati was a good source for some of them. When possible I have shown the original photo then the sketch, of course the image of her with her hands/nails up to her face in shock is a standard pose for Ms. Peterson so it might not be an exact match.
