David brought his Boris Karloff sketch cards to "Chiller Theatre" to show Ms. Karloff and have her sign them if she liked them. She was genuinely taken with David's rendering of her father. She inquired if he made money doing cards of her father. He responded that he knew she held the licensing of her father's image, so he mainly did them for himself. Ms. Karloff encouraged David to contact her via email. She said that perhaps they could discuss the possibility of a sketch card set. To say we left her table feeling incredibly happy would be an understatement.
Well, when Sandy hit, we were focused on coping day to day with our lack of power. After everything had somewhat settled down, David did finally email Ms. Karloff. She remembered him and after several emails asked David to be part of the artist gallery on her website. To say that David was excited at the thought of being part of an artist gallery that includes one of his idols, Basil Gogos, is putting it mildly. As of Friday, March 1, 2013, David is included in this gallery -- and I am so proud of him!
Ultimately, it was Sara Karloff who made it possible for David's work to be seen and enjoyed by her father's fans. If you would like to check the site and/or David's artist page, click the link below:
