More exciting than the Oscars...


It's the Rondos! That's right monster kids & horror fans, voting for the eighth annual Rondo Awards has begun! Go now and vote for your favorite movie, book, magazine, podcast, etc. Voting will continue through April 3, 2010, so spread the good word.



**UPDATE** This year the Rondo ballot features a Fan Artist of the Year category in addition to the (Professional) Artist of the Year. Since this is a write in category, I decided to start a thread at the CHFB where fan artist can post some of their art from 2009 in consideration for the Rondo. You can view this thread here.

Marlow



Just a quick post. Right now I'm busy working on a few pieces for the upcoming Little Shoppe of Horrors Mummy issue.

I finished this up last week for the CHFB monthly challenge which was 'Something New'. Well, I always do something new for the challenge, so I decided to take on a 'newer' subject as well. It's been snowing a lot in these here parts. I've seen more snow in the last month & a half than I have in years. Last Sunday, I slipped and fell on my foot, so I've been hobbling around all week. I was just glad nothing was broken. But with all this snow, it makes me want to watch all of my horror DVD's that have a winter backdrop. One of these is 2007's '30 Days of Night'. I really like this film, I know that some don't. But I thought it was an interesting idea and I really felt like the vampires were actually frightening. No romantic vampires here, just killers. I especially liked the head vampire, Marlow, played by Danny Huston. So I decided that I would draw him for the challenge. Well, I best get back to my mummy business.....
