Skeleton Knight Process

Sometimes you just wanna paint skeleton knights. I thought it was interesting (though not necessarily good) how this painting evolved from a state where his pauldron spikes were not poking him in the eyes. I find I have to throw away the linework or the painting gets very comic booky but then it goes off in directions I don't expect. Which can lead to happy accidents. Or it can lead to your skeleton knight being poked in the eye.

Also I lost all the definition on the chainmail and it turned into a mush. But every time I tried to define it more it brought too much focus to that area. Well there will be other Skeleton Knights.

5 second day film "Hermit"





Hey all! Does anybody actually come here any more? I certainly don't
seem to! Been a very art-busy year. So here's a thing I did! It's a
spooky short film for Titmouse's 5 second day. Originally it was going
to be a much longer story and in comic book form but I whittled it down
into a short film. And now it's so different I suppose I could still do
the comic.

Too early? Nah.


I attended the Canadian premiere of the Danny Elfman symphony this weekend and went on to watch Batman Returns on loop for like 2 days. So felt a little festive and also decided to slap some watercolours around for fun.

HALLOWE'EN!

HAPPY HALLOWE'EN BLOGLAND!



I mostly keep this site for purely art-related stuff but there's a part of my life that discreetly pokes out into this site now and again. Very discreetly. I am a Hallowe'en FANATIC! And me and my good friend Ben Krakowsky, who runs http://www.hauntBC.com,  are hosting a Hallowe'en party. If you live in Vancouver and love the hell out of Hallowe'en, this is the place to go my friends. We are tired of club night parties with no Monster Mash, 20 dollars in shoppers drug mart tombstones scotch-taped on the walls and no, for lack of a better term, gusto.

We have the gusto. We have cornered the market on gusto.

We will have surprise guests trick or treating at the venue throughout the night! We will have burlesque, highland dancing, magic, comedy, music and the coolest prize give-aways in all of the lower mainland. Want an autographed photograph of Jeffrey Combs? How about one of Udo Kier? A private tour of a horror televsion set? $1031.00 in cash prizes? How about some one-of-a-kind artwork made especially for the event by an artist whose work has appeared in Ripley's Believe it or Not?  And that's not even close to all of the amazing prizes we have for people who go all out for my favorite day of the year.

Remember that feeling you got on Hallowe'en night when you were a kid?

Come to this party and reclaim it!

PS we are thrilled to be hosted by the near-legendary Aleister Crane! That guy's a national treasure!

The Death of the Horned King

This movie was a huge favorite of mine as a kid. I remember seeing it in theatres and totally falling in love with it. Then there's the sense of mystique because it never got a VHS release until WAY later. Watching it that long after the fact though underlined the enormous problems with the movie. But the fact remains it is an animated movie with a WICKED badass looking villain who raises an army of the dead from an evil cauldron and in the end rots in what is probably the best Disney villain death ever.

Here's to you, Horned King.
