This was part of a tribute exhibit of over 100 artists works celebrating the history of Mike Mignola's Hellboy character. This show was officially sanctioned by the man himself, and he attended the show as well. Thanks to curator Chogrin Munoz for the invitation. Loved working on this!

After I got my way-cool photos of the Frankenstein head sculpt from photographer Bill Dragga, I asked him what he would like as far as payment for his services.... Bill is a big Science Fiction movie fan, classics and b-level films as well. He asked me if I could do a drawing for him. We settled on a Paul Blaisdell Saucerman from the 1957 movie. I was just thinking about doing a drawing of these guys the other day, so this was perfect. Here is the result!

He approached; his countenance bespoke bitter anguish, combined with disdain and malignity, while its unearthly ugliness rendered it almost too horrible for human eyes.

Issue number 2 of BELA LUGOSI'S TALES FROM THE GRAVE is finally here! Look for this striking cover by 7 time Academy Award winner: Rick Baker! Lots of cool stuff in this issue, and I was particularly struck by Mike Dubisch's Order In: Take out Chaos. My story is 8 pages and titled: Claws of the Werewolf. It is written by Sam Park. Start bugging your local comic book retailer now, issue #1 sold out!

F.O.E. Gallery, coming up this weekend. I call it 'The Ball of Cthulhu'. Did this quick, in about 5 hours in between other projects. 16'' by 16''acrylic on canvas board. This is my first Madball painting in about 2 years. Forgot how fun they are to do. Anyway, enjoy the terror of: THE BALL OF CTHULHU!

Got a new computer and wanted to try a Photoshop rendering to start getting it limbered up. No sketch this time, just straight into Photoshop and finished in about 3.5 hours.
I have been talking to some friends about trying to produce a small line of creepy, monster plush characters with some sculpted parts. I did some quick pencil drawings of about 15 characters and we all seemed to like this little guy. He is based on the custom plush character I did a couple years ago for a gallery show. the original piece sold real quick and alot of people comment on how much they like the lil' critter.
I'll post some shots of the finished plush when he is finally brought to life.

Rotten Rex should be ready to be cut into parts this weekend. From there I will finish sculpting various details under the arms, between the legs, the belly and finishing the tail. Still a little bit of work left on this, but will finish in about a week if all is good!

Here is the finished Sasquatch painting that I did for the show in the American Greetings art gallery. About 20 hours to complete, all in acrylic paints. Had so much fun doing this painting, forgot how much I love to paint. Just a few more of these and I could have a gallery show of my own someday...

Here are some shots of my undead dinosaur sculpture entitled: Rotten Rex.
Rex is 15 inches tall and weighs as much as a 2 year old child! I am hoping to get the sculpture done by the end of the month. He will be produced as a 15 inch tall articulated collectors vinyl figure. So far he is looking quite bad-ass, and I am hoping that he will be the first in a series of over-sized vinyl figures. Stay tuned to my blog, and I will continue to keep you posted on Rotten Rex's progress.

I am splitting my time these days between sculpting a 15 inch Tyrannosaurus and painting a portrait of Sasquatch.
Life is good!
The Tyrannosaur is for Lullubell Toys, and should be done in about 2 weeks, (will post photos this week).
The Sasquatch portrait is for a group show to be held in the American Greetings art gallery here in Cleveland. It will be 24 inches wide by 30 inches tall, so Sasquatch is gonna be BIG. The title to the piece will be: 'I Am Not An Animal, (hence the suit and tie in the portrait).
Will post more photos once he is finished.
