Art by Freelance Artist Lee Howard
Freelance artist Lee Howard submitted two awesome pieces of artwork inspired by A Nightmare on Elm Street. The first piece is Lee’s redesign of Freddy Krueger and the second is his interpretation of Jesse Walsh from A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge, inspired by actor Mark Patton’s “Jesse’s Lost Journals” series. Lee supplied a brief description for each piece on Facebook, which you can read below.
Lee Howard: “This is my re-design of Fred Krueger. I love Freddy and am a HUGE fan, and I feel like, if I was to do a remake of Elm Street, I would make Freddy look as hideous as possible (and also, look slightly different throughout the movie) because he is MADE of Nightmares. He IS nightmares. And I think his look should reaaaally reflect the ‘boogyman’ image. So this was me, playing around, to reinterpret an icon.”
Lee Howard: “There is no Jesse! Based on Nightmare on Elm Street 2, but also on Jesse’s Lost Journals, which is a written continuation of the Jesse character from the movie, written by the actor who played him.”
