    Default Bernie Wrightson, Artist

    Hey everyone,

    I am trying to track down Bernie Wrightson original works from Cycle of the Werewolf, The Stand, Wolves of Calla, and From a Buick 8. Specifically, I really need to hunt down Werewolf originals. Would anyone out there happen to own any of these works, or know where I can find some?

    Thank you!

    Hi Jerad, and welcome to our little corner. You are a well liked and respected figure amongst our group of collectors. We are honored that you come to us with your question.

    Well, you have Bob's work scanned at this point. Our member oy the brave owns a Wolves of the Calla Wrightson original (the paperback edition cover). My three originals of Wrightson are only pencil drawings which I do not think you are interested in. One is a Wolf sketch from the S/L Cycle of the Werewolf. The other two are from Wolves of the Calla. Pictures follow:





    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand
    .

    Not exactly originals from his books, but last week some originals concepts that Wrightson made for The Mist were auctioned at ebay.com

    I have them in my ebay if you need the links.

    ugh, now I have to find the picture again. I may have it somewhere. But it will take some looking.

    Once I find it, i shall share my wolfie! I think it's even posted on this site, somewhere.....

    Boy, I'll say. I came THIS CLOSE to buying that art before Dave did, but I sure am glad that he owns it given that I do not.

    Ok, here's my original Wolfie.

    This was painted at Palavercon in 2005. Michael Whelan, Phil Hale and Rick Berry did a painting collaboration type thing. And while I was watching Michael uncover the wolf (at least that's what I think he is, kneeling over his prey) I fell in love with it.

    Well I was talking to Michael about it and he said that I could have it. Boy, was I over the moon! Well, A snag was hit when I found out that the paintings were supposed to go to Robert to re-coop money from the Con. There was also a stipulation that each of the artists got on and Mic. Well, Mic was ever so generous to pick Wolfie and give it to me, since it was such a big misunderstanding.

    There is only two sigs on it, Michael and Phil, Rick never signed it, but there is video evidence that he did work on it.

    Someday I am hoping to get the video of them painting it to go along with it.

    And that's my story and I am sticking to it!

    It's a great story and I love how you've got a single painting that's been worked on by three artists for whom we all feel such an affinity.

    I think that and the fact that I got to watch it come to life are the two best things about the painting.

    And it's ok, wolfie likes being in the dark, Jeremy, and there he shall stay, until I have the money to frame him!

    You don't see an original DarkTower piece come up very often. Liz just posted this on Bernie's site:

    One of the remaining few pieces Bernie did for Stephen King. Acrylic paint on 11.5X15.5 Briston Board; image size 8X12
