You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Famous Monster Artist Of Filmland

This past year we lost artist and illustrator Basil Gogos, acclaimed cover portraitist for the fan-favorite Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine. With a name that somehow suggests he was born to paint monster portraits, Basil Gogos first provided the cover art for the monster mag in 1960 (no. 9, seen below), just a few years after the magazine was founded in 1958, and went on to paint over 50 more eye-catching, blood-curdling master masterpieces. You can see more about the master of monster art at the Famous Monsters website.
