    Brian Joseph Davis is a journalist who has made a hobby out of creating composite sketches for famous literary figures by using law enforcement compositing programs. For example, his imagining of Dracula, as described by Stoker, is a long way from the sexy, mysterious vampires that traditionally creep across the silver screen. Take a look at some of the sketches, plus the written passages the images were based on. [Source]

    I think he'd be less creepy as Jack Nicholson.

    Having looked at all the sketches I have to admit to being unimpressed with them. Reading the descriptions, I find it hard to see how the pictures match up. Might just be me, though.

    The comments on that page are hilarious to read, though. Just goes to prove what a lovely site SKMBs are when you see some of those other comments. I love you guys and gals.

    Not how I would picture him at all! All I remember from the book regarding his description was that he had reddish blond hair, bow lips, and blue eyes. But certainly, he doesn't look like that. :O
