"En Garde, BITCH!" Here's the Death Becomes Her painting I just finished for the B-Movie tribute show at LTD Gallery in Seattle. I was very excited to be invited, so I wanted to choose something really special. Death Becomes Her is one of my all-time favorite movies, and though it arguably boasts an A-list pedigree, its themes and plot are B-Movie gold. The campy horror and endless cat-fighting is completely over the top, which is exactly why I love it so much.
I chose to illustrate the most memorable scene of the film in which both (newly dead) women do their best to destroy each other, to little effect.
Madeline Ashton (Meryl Stree) pulling her head out after seeing the wrong side of a shovel.
Helen Sharp (Goldie Hawn) on the rampage despite getting her guts blown out by Madeline's shotgun.
