Phantom of the Opera


This Chaney Phantom piece is one I've been tinkering around with. There are things I like about it and things I don't, but decided that I needed to wrap it up before I became utterly sick of the sight of it.
So I'm sharing it here and moving on.... Hopefully Nosferatu is not too far behind.

Count Mora & Luna


I've had this piece done for a few weeks, I've just been sitting on it. I'm working on a bunch of different things right now, so I thought I would go ahead and post it before it got lost in the shuffle.

These are 'vampires' are Count Mora & Luna from 1935's 'Mark of the Vampire'. An enjoyable little film, although I'm not really crazy about the turn towards the end (don't want to give anything away if you haven't seen it, if you have seen it, you probably know what I'm talking about.)

This is another piece sort of done in my 'Monsters & Mates' style, but I decided to give it a moodier background than just the solid color. There will be more of these, I've got some sketches I'm really excited to get working on. So look for those to be posted some time in the next month or so.

Phibes & Vulnavia


After at least two to three years of plotting & planning, I FINALLY did a finished Dr. Phibes piece. I had the idea sketched out for awhile but hadn't done anything with it. A year or two went by. Last year Little Shoppe of Horrors was putting together a Phibes isssue, and I thought that I would take that opportunity to do a finished piece. However, due to space limitations in the magazine, I decided to drop out of that issue. It's probably for the best, because I don't think it would have turned out as well as this one did. I was having some problems trying to figure out how to make certain elements work, and it just recently fell into place for me.
I'm also in a mad scramble, as I have soooo much I need to do, and it seems like it's all jammed into the next three months. More new art to come!
