We are raising immediate funds for the burial expenses of artist Basil Gogos. Basil's earnings from his art went to living expenses and his art studio. Let's show our appreciation and give the legendary artist who has inspired many a proper goodbye.

Being a huge fan of Mr Basil Gogos, we are trying to help raise funds to help Basil Gogos receive a proper goodbye and other needed expenses. 

Funds will go straight to Basil's widow. 

Anyone and everyone who appreciates what Basil created for horror artists needs to give a little. 

Mr. Gogos paved the way for many horror artists. He is a true legend and inspiration for years to come for many more young artists in the making.

During the 1960s, Basil Gogos provided a steady stream of illustrations for a variety of New York-based publications.

However, Gogos' greatest impact as an illustrator was the work he did for Warren Publishing,  Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, created by publisher James Warren and editor Forrest J. Ackerman, i n the 1990s. During this time, new Gogos monster portraits appeared on trading cards, lithographs, and the covers of Monsterscene magazine. He has also painted CD covers for rock stars Rob ZombieThe Misfits, and Electric Frankenstein.
