The legendary silent film star Lon Chaney has had many famous roles, but one in particular is lost to antiquity. There are no known copies in existence of his film "London After Midnight". It was created in an era where saving movies for prosperity was not even an afterthought, and so it was orphaned, abandoned and is now lost for good. Only clips, posters and still shots remain for fans to wonder and wish they knew what it was all about.

My own interpretation/rendition of the main character though, is now safe on the blockchain. Every cell was hand drawn and inked with a brush, in order to give it a suitably creepy and Victorian look, before coloring it digitally. The background is several layered sections of hand inked lines...a bit nerve wracking to do, but the results are a nice uneven, unsteadying effect.

* The 5th and final edition will be sold as an auction.

@francescoflore thx! Although, That is actually Lon Chaney from a silent movie that, believe it or not, came out before the Dracula movie that has the caped slick haired version of Dracula we all know! London After Midnight is the name of the film...worth doing a search on. real interesting history to it.

Yesss! Hadn't heard of that lost film. I'm sure it was epic (and creepy). Unfortunately, we'll never get to see it; fortunately, we have your cool imagining of Lon Chaney's character.

Well have to be satisfied with that, the blockchain will never forget! Funny, when I stumbled across it and the few frames of Chaney, my friend said "wow...that looks like a character you'd come up with". It does at that, I didn't have to change my style to get it to look damn close . It's seem amazing, living in the internet age, for something to just be "lost", don't it?
