Godzilla – 1941

Here’s a quick digital snap of my big Godzilla piece prior to coloring. The final coloring has almost been completed; as soon as it is, I’ll post it.

This is Godzilla attacking Tokyo in 1941. He’s being attacked by Japanese Zeros. That’s a vintage Japanese WWII sub in the foreground.

    I demand this be a companion piece to your Mondo King Kong print!

    I offered it to Mondo; they declined, saying that Toho was too difficult to deal with as a licensor.

    Hey, this is great Mr. Stout. Love the Japanese supersub. I talked to a Japanese pastor years ago who made it back after serving on a submarine crew. He said his was one of three that survived.
    I saw in the book of preproduction film art Godzilla: the Art of Destruction a version of the monster that was close to your dinosaur design. It was rejected for being too close to a T-Rex. Since when has that been a problem?
    Can’t wait to see this in color. And it’s also a great notion for film (with animation by Willis O’brien and Ray Harryhausen if my dreams came true).
