Better Late Than Never

Completely forgot Krampus Day this year with the new job and various other things in life. 
So I decided to do a new, completely redesigned Krampus. I'll get him finished sooner or later.

Trick R' Treat Armature finished.

So this is a pretty basic armature. 
The skeleton is just PVC.
The costume is all stuffed with poly fill.

The head I decided to make the hard way I guess. 
Basically I applied Papier-mâché to a dummy head you can buy at Sally's.
I then covered that in Duct Tape. 
Once dry, I peeled the whole thing of the head in section, taped it all back together, and poly filled it.
I once again applied Papier-mâché, over the front

Finally I painted the front with an airbrush and then detailed it with a paint brush.

And added to dummy.

So there you have it. One of the 4 Trick R' Treaters that will be dancing around the soul tree (or giant pumpkin if I get to it).

Work Begins

Here is the start of the paper Skeleton I hope I will be able to use in the tree this year. It's tricky because he is basically made of card stock. But it's all paper and glue anyway... so we'll see. I guess, if I have to, I can replace the head. If it works though it may be a lighter, more economical way to make trees.

The Skin Taker

“why does your mouth move like that” 
and the skin-taker didn’t look at the girl but at the camera and said 

Sunday, July 15, 2012



They say that monsters come only at night,
That light will drive them away.
But not all creatures follow this rule,
Safety not certain during the day.

He hides on the fringes of your vision,
Brief glimpses of the distorted.
He slithers and writhes behind your eyes,
Reaching for you, limbs contorted.

Before you know it your children are taken,
And now it’s come down to you.
His breath is oppressive, his presence acidic,
He feels pity is undue.

Suddenly, trapped in his grasp so tight,
You struggle to break yourself free.
He laughs and he gurgles and he screeches with glee,
He turns your head for you to see.

Your children are crying though their eyes are removed,
They collapse, still and silent.
His arms and legs bend pulling you closer,
The man’s eyes dark and violent.

He strikes and he cuts, your skin flays open,
Your soul to weak to resist.
This should not have happened, if only you had listened,
Never go into his forest.

Costume Nearly Finished

Here is the finished paint job sans blood. Drawbacks to losing weight... custom fit costume doesn't fit perfectly anymore. Still have to figure out what to do with the eyes though.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

So there is this rumor floating around about a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde theme this year. I have no idea if it is true or not but it inspired me to do this.

What do you think?

I started putting together Brughal Mythos last night and as it stands with what I currently have it will be approximately 22 pages, 9 main illustrations, and 11 poems. I'm opting for soft cover and the price will be about 10 dollars. Do you feel this is good content to dollar ratio or would you prefer to see more content for a $5 increase

One More

OK OK one more... (its not complete) But I can't show EVERYTHING that will be in the book. I redid the spider legend which was the very first pic I did for the book. I just feel that it no longer fit the style of the book. So here it is revamped. Sorry Hon... First clowns and now spiders.

Be Careful Where You Stay

Hotels can sometimes be dark, seedy places
So many come and go you can’t remove all traces

But on Occasion you find a whole lot more
Then a leaky faucet or a crack in the door

Strange stains or smells that won’t go away
It might be a good time to shorten your stay

Or request a new room before it’s too late
For exploration could put a twist in your fate

But if nosing around is what your decide
You may be a suspect in a ghastly homicide
