My ol buddy  Igor and a sketchbook,  mosts of his time is spent in this position these days not leaping on trees like a young black pussycat (tho he has never been  a outdoor cat).

Carousel 30

Carousel 30 is out and along with all the neat art and writing inside a Happy Undertaker episode appears. I think this is 7th consecutive issue its in.  Issue 31 which you can preorder will have two episodes...

Vampire Suicide Funnies..



it was really cold this morning, and a black dogs  owner car light lit up the bench which I liked despite the blurry shot. I couldn't see the black dog either.


Looking at some Charles Dana Gibson this morning. He's like the John Singer Sargent of pen and ink.

Sketchbook stuff that I had posted elsewhere but  not here I don't think...

The Movie Show

Last years Bookshow was one of my favorite group exhibits that I've been involved with so I'm happy to have been invited to the Movie Show. There is not art up yet but I love that title design and whats a good show without some ballyhoo. Thanks to  Seb Mesnard  ( a wonderful artist and great guy) and Galerie Daniel Maghen for inviting me again to what I'm sure will be collection of  amazing work. Paris in June, I'd love to make that opening.


Le Fanu

I'm illustrating a collection of one of my favorite  victorian supernatural writers due out in the fall which is nerve wracking because I don't want it to be lousy. I've never illustrated a classic before thats had many interpretations and I love any movie that takes off on Carmilla .

A Quiet Place in the Country

Its been a good weekend of catching with some movies I've been wanting to see. 

Morbids-Garage Sale



Finally saw another movie I've wanted to see for a long time. The 1933 Supernartural by the Halperin Brothers  (White Zombie). Carol Lombard is a socialite whose body is possessed by a female artist, and 3 time strangler who is executed.  There's a great self portrait in Rogen's studio in the movie who I'd like to know who painted. I'm always interested who paints the pictures in these old movies. Mixed with 30's pre code luridness and deco  glamor I loved this movie. And Lombard, who made many great films, looked incredible with lovely cinematography.
And tho the article says you might not recognize her with her possession make-up thats not really the case, its subtle and I'd say she looked even better:-) Beatiful poster too.

And cool little article I grabbed here.
