Excerpt from Flavorwire's interview with the artist, "Ghoulish" Gary Pullin: "We recently caught up with one of the artists in the exhibit, monster maven Gary Pullin. The longtime Rue Morgue magazine art director/current art columnist and award-winning illustrator shared more information about his work, Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. “Psycho is a very stylish, simplistic horror film that is still to this day, a terrifying experience. I wanted to create a simple, iconic image that portrayed all of that,” he said of his creepy, ocular creation. “Hitchcock’s camera acts as a voyeur throughout the film and that’s where the idea to use Janet Leigh’s eye came from. The shower drain becomes her iris and the spiral of blood is a metaphor for Norman’s decent into madness.” Pullin also advised that the color palette of his minimal, but intense, illustration was inspired by Psycho’s memorable knife and the 1960s. “When I think of Psycho, I also think of a large kitchen knife, which in turn makes me think of what the color palette of a kitchen might be in the ’60s. I used turquoise, a reddish orange and off-white to represent the time period when the film was made.” Finally he adds, “Hitchcock was also famous for his small cameos so if you look closely, he may reveal himself.”"
