In the spirit of Valentines Day I am sharing this funny, heartwarming link with you.
This short film is part of the brilliant Written By A Kid YouTube series.
Share it with those you love and hate and everyone in between. Share:
The "Eternally Enthralling" Elvira aka Cassandra Peterson. The "Supremely Splendid" Smokey Miles aka Count Smokula. The "Always Adorable" Dave Reynolds. The "Contagiously Creative" Caleb Emerson... and soooo much more...
I did some illustrations that appear in the film, too. See if you can spot 'em!
I am truly honored that when the good folks at Goatworm Industries decided to launch a series of limited edition buttons they invited ME aboard to produce seven designs.
And here they are...
Allow me to introduce them to you, going clockwise and starting at HIGH NOON:
Lil' Yella JanusKopf -- he/she bewitches and beguiles even when spun upside-down. or is that downside-up?
Ol' BlueSkull may appear to be a tabletop model missing a mandible, but is menacing nonetheless. I wouldn't get my fingers or toes near the fangs.
is a variation on my JanusKopf motif (meaning "head of Janus", the
2-faced Roman god, also the title of the first film adaptation of Jekyll
& Hyde). One of the faces resembles someone named Borgnine.
Rondelle Hatton Button celebrates deformity... in the round! Ugly no matter how the button is turned.
Fried Chimp is, well... an electrocuted simian I guess... hard to tell what with all the screeching and charring.
Trifecta is another JanusKopf... but this time with THREE visages mashed together. Yummy!
last but certainly not least, in the center ring:
Orlok Shuriken -- that's right... ol' Max Shreck himself in something of a THROWING STAR MOTIF. Makes me want an actual Nosferatu throwing star.
This gallery contains examples of drawings created on September 27, 2008 when I was invited to Bowdoin College as Visiting Artist for an upper-level studio class. This 12 hour art-making session was inspired by my own 2006 "Curse of the Haunted Tower" marathon and exhibition.
Installation views of my 2007 solo exhibition at the Winfisky Gallery, which included the debut of the 18-foot long "Big Painting" and Creep-O-Vision, a digital wall-piece containing over 100 drawings.
