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

Ghosts vs Aliens

Have you ever wanted to golf inside of a haunted house or perhaps during an alien invasion? If you answered yes to one or both of the above questions you should try out Hollywood Drive-In golf at Universal city walk!

You have your choice between two courses, one being "Invaders From Planet Putt" and the other being "The Haunting of Ghostly Greens". Prices start at $14 per adult, $12 per child or you can go with the double feature for $25 per adult, $21 per child. If your annual passholder you get an additional 20%t off your bill. The starting price for a single course is just a few dollars higher than other comparable course (Such as Congo River at $11.00). But with the Double Feature it is virtually the same.

We arrived at about 7 o'clock, paid, and picked up our gear without waiting. There was literally no wait for the invaders course but there was a slight wait for the haunted course so we chose to go to the invaders course first.

This course was very sharp and clean and had lots of cool little gimmicks, one of which was a "mind control" television where your ball appears to be be on the screen. The entire course had a retro-futuristic feel to it. Each marker post has comical little rhymes that are prevalent throughout  both courses. In fact the general tone is playful and lighthearted. The finale was cute although it made me dizzy.

We then proceeded to the ghostly greens course and there was already a wait of 4 families. This we found out would be the trend for the rest of this course.

It had a very haunted mansion feel to it, though the house itself is very reminiscent of the psycho house. It too was also very sharp and clean with some creative gimmicks. Not to give anything away but the final hole on this course is more intricate than I've ever seen in a putt putt course.

Like any  new endeavor, it had its glitches. Wet paint, wheel barrels full of dirt, and a few glitches in the architecture that caused the ball to get stuck. None of which diminished the overall enjoyment of the attraction. I did however have to climb up the outside of the house's stairs and help a little girl dislodge her ball.

Overall both courses were a fun time, the music was good, and I felt it was money well spent. The production value is definitely top-notch.

So whether you like ghost, aliens, or just a fun family outing, I definitely recommend you check out Hollywood Drive Golf.

Plat Eye Pt 2

Working on the new pic. Completely redesigned and much more intricate.
I'm going to use this one as a sample for the book along with the poem that goes with it. So Here's the poem of the Plat Eye:

Plat Eye
If you ever find yourself in the GonnaGetchaWoods,

You best find a path home if you know what’s good.

Avoid the graveyard and the fall of twilight.

For the Plat Eye may catch you in the dark of the night.

Clutch you powder and sulfur, hold on to it tight!

Or you could fall into a terrible plight.

If you’re born of the caul you might see it come,

As a cat or a dog or hog on the run.

Faster and bigger with each resounding stride.

You’ll have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide.

Heed my warning chillun. Heed it good!

If you ever find yourself in the Gonna GetchaWoods.
