From out mother group
On April 15th, 2015, science fiction and film writer Ib Melchior
Mister Melchior has contributed significant entries to both cult cinema and the giant monster genre, as he was the man behind the screenplays for ”Angry Red Planet” (1959, also director)
, ”Reptilicus” (1961)
, ”Journey to the Seventh Planet” (1962)
, ”Robinson Crusoe on Mars”
(1964), ”Planet of the Vampires”
(1965), and many other films and short stories.
His brief action-horror prose, ”The Racer”
, would become the basis for the wonderfully mean-spirited sci-fi satire ”Death Race 2000”
And Ib Melchior was also the writer for the abandoned American version of ”Godzilla Raids Again”
, ”The Volcano Monsters”
To honor the man who's given us so many bizarre, but wonderful beasts, we’re officially bringing back our monthly art jam, by having a salute to any of Ib Melchior’s works
Go ahead and draw any of the giant monsters he helped create, or any other fan art connected to the films he wrote. We’ll feature said pieces across several DeviantART groups, in and beyond Kaijuden, depending on the drawn subject at hand.
Just please try to keep said works tasteful in nature and execution.The Ib Melchior art jam ends May 31st (a Sunday night)
