Sift through grainy old monster pictures from artist Travis Louie, and reminisce about a time when monsters had a simple dignity. Louie has an amazing eye for creating cool scifi creatures putting them against a realistic historical backdrop. Not only that, but each painting comes with its own monster back story.

Louie recently had a large showing at the Roq La Rue gallery in Seattle, Washington and he was at Comic Con at the Hi-Fructose table. Give Louie more scifi love, so his monster work can come to a gallery near you. [Travis Louie via BeinArt]
