I Was one of 5 artists to work on an all sketch card set called "Monsters" series 2. Other artists from the Wacky packages gang involved are Neil Camera, Brent Engstrom, Smokin Joe, and Joe Simko. There are about 200 cards all together, and are being auctioned off in sets of 5 on ebay right now. All auctions , I believe, end on Halloween so don't miss out! Here are some of the cards that I drew for the set.

The Horrible Hag Lantern

Even though it is still in the 90's here in New Orleans, subconsciously I know that August is half over and that Fall is right around the corner. My mind is creeping back towards Foggy chilled Halloween nights. The 1st piece I have made based on this new Inspiration is the "Horrible Hag" lantern. An edition of 10 8" x 8.75 lanterns all hand cut and assembled with paper face transparency. I listed one on ebay today.

Kaiju For Japan is a collection of artist made goods varying from custom painted figures to paintings and prints. I have donated 4 custom Japanese vinyl monsters.

The Shop goes Live Friday April 22nd, it will appear to be under maintenance until that day. Kaiju for Japan Shop These are the 4 Pieces I donated, prices range from $50 to $200.

Big Cartel

I have closed down the regular store section of the website and am in the process of moving it into a Bigcartel shop. I like the cleanliness and ease of uploading. This will allow me to offer more one off pieces as well as things not directly related to halloween. As time allows over the next couple weeks I will continue to add new and old pieces.

Debuting in the shop is a new mini die cut transparency version of the Haunted Log. This is the first color version and is limited to only 4 copies.

The Leafy Miser has a pull out plug in the bottom, and silver accents on his stem, eyes & leafy ears. The Cat Clown has a blue light on one side, and a purple on the other, with a black fade down the middle. Silver highlights his chin, forehead & Button.

I had fun making the veggie man so I made two more. I am going for a carnival chalkware sort of color approach on these.

New Sculpture!

I decided to try a new technique with sculpture, so here is the 1st attempt. This is a 9" tall veggie man candy container with removable head. He is made of polymer clay and sits on a vintage wood base. A jaunty guy with some serious swagger in his step!

Halloween at Raynham Hall

This week's ebay postcard sized painting is based on the classic ghost photo, The Brown Lady Of Raynham Hall. I first saw this Photo in 2nd grade when I checked a book about ghosts out of the school library. Since then , this has always been there in the back of my mind influencing most of what I do or what interests me. It dawned on me I never directly incorporated it into anything yet, so I did this small painting. I think I will eventually do a larger oil of a similar image.

The Brown Lady..... Some Say you can see some children in there with her, but who can say for sure.

Major Website Update

I have had several complaints that there was no way to see everything I have been making lately since I branched out into more limited edition paper pieces. I just put together a webpage that shows every piece in chronological order with pertinent details. If any are still available they can be purchased from that page as well. You can see the new page HERE!

And since a post without pictures is depressing, here are a few random images.

This is a recent commission i finished based on my interpretation of this Black Cat Mystery Cover. The owner of the original art to that classic wanted me to do a shiverbones-ized version, and this is the result.

Happy New Year!

The days grow longer very slightly, warmth promises to come back, and I am excited about getting some new designs done for 2011.

First up is the 2nd Candy & Toy box in the series of six, "The Moon". The toy in this one is a small moon face that has a slide up bat & black cat attached to it. PIctured below is the front & back of the box, and the toy in 2 positions.
