HorrorHound #37 Cover
Well, I just wanted to let you know that this month you can go to your news stand and pick up the latest issue of HorrorHound, with an inside alternate cover by yours truly. This was a tough one to do, and I don't know how well it went over with the regular readers. I've purposely been avoiding reading any social media/blog/message board comments. I know that everyone has their own tastes and people like what they like. And some times, very cartoonish images such as this aren't their idea of 'cover' material. But anyway, I was very happy and proud that I can now add HorrorHound cover artist to my resume.
For those of you looking for this issue, the front cover looks like this:
Then when you open it up there is a second cover, which is mine.
And if you're interested in how my work on the Coundown to Halloween is coming along:
The Halloween season is coming up fast. I'm trying really hard to get a strong head start on the original Halloween art I'm doing this year. So far I'm not doing so good. I have two almost finished pieces. My goal is to have 8. Part of the struggle is trying to decide what to do. I have lots of cat sketches this year, but I didn't want to do all cats. I'm trying to break it up with some other Halloween icons. Also I'm doing a group gallery show at ZaPow on Oct. 5, so I've got to get that done & turned in, a week from Monday. Then I will possibly be taking part in an art show in Raleigh around the 20th. So I'm a tad stressed at the moment. Plus I've been trying to work on sketches and everything just looks terrible. It's really bumming me out. But I'm hoping that everything will snap itself into place, and I will be excited about the countdown again.
