We recently discovered that Shel had done a painting of Frankenstein’s Monster in the late seventies or early eighties. Shel gave the painting to Ken Krueger who later passed it along to San Diego fan John Thibodeau. Recently, John gave the painting to Troy Beaver, who owns and operates the Footnote Books store in San Diego’s Hillcrest community.
Troy has the painting on display in his store on the top of a bookshelf as the centerpiece of a sort of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror genre shrine.
Visit Footnote Books, a very cool bookstore, at 1627 University Ave., San Diego, CA 92103.
