Count Orlok. Like, a whole, whole lot. And what's not to love? He's a bootleg vampire, a passion project slated for destruction by Stoker's widow, kept alive by people smuggling his tapes to and from. Wretched, ugly, but with a really cool castle, Orlok's design has been integral in the design of all my work. Murnau intended Nosferatu
to be a love letter to Dracula, and I like to think my project is a little love letter to Orlok. It's 43 illustrations along with captions from the movie with a weird... modern? Punk? Irreverent? Twist. It's a labor of love, just like Murnau's, what matter if it costs me some pain, or even a little blood?
