It's not because artists don't see value in the macabre or monstrous. I have no less than four Frankenstein Gothic's, five Aliens Gothic's and an assortment of other monstrous creatures set in the farmhouse pose.
And it's not because the parody makers are less active these days. Quite the contrary as evidenced by the fact that I found seven Obama themed American Gothic images but only one Reagan and no presidents earlier than LBJ, who is on a comedy album's parody cover. Not to mention lots of modern themes such as gay rights and America’s obesity problem.
So what’s the deal? I challenge artists to pick up their mouse, start up their Photoshop, and submit A vampire romance or vampires vs. werewolves American Gothic Parody. I regret that at this time I can offer no financial reward for such a creation but you will get credit on my pages. Any takers?
