My friend Brandon C. sent this to me.
Skeleface or die.


Hello Ladies and Ghouls,

So, good news. KAREN AND I GOT AN APARTMENT IN SF!!! Super kick-ass, decently affordable (by SF standards) and right in the thick of it. That being said, I am now feverishly working at my day jobs, as freelance has dried up, to make all the money I can to get my ass on the road with Miss Karen O. However, I am forcing myself to take a bit of time to get back to some of the personal projects I have been cranking on for a while, and will post some of the progress and results this weekend. I am having a great time with some good old pencil and paper, so stay tuned. Also, keep up on our new zombie blog, Zombie Nation at Our friends at Revenant Magazine have been pumping it, and I hear we will have a bit of press coming from a podcast. CHECK IT. Word.

Skeleface or die.

Darkness on the Edge of Town

I apologize for the stagnant blog lately, folks, but I am feverishly trying to find an apartment in SF with the lovely Karen O and my brain is slowly melting and leaking out of my nose from the stress. Not to mention between my two day jobs I am pulling roughly 70 hours a week. But, much beside the point. Life is kicking ass, and I want to share some of the Kick-Assness with all of you. Darkness on the Edge of Town Paranormal Radio Show. Super awesome, super spooky at times, and always hilarious. Follow Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis through their adventures in audio as they interview some of the biggest names in the paranormal field, discussing topics from U.F.O.s to cryptids, ghosts to demons, and a hell of a lot more. There is roughly two years worth of show archives, and they have recently moved to FM talk radio! Oh, and these two ghost-chasing goofballs are from Minnesota. Skeptic yet open, these guys are a blast to listen to and it makes for great entertainment while trudging through the daytime hours at work, and also while creepin' at the drawing table during the hours of darkness. Check them out, everyone, you won't regret it.

Skeleface or die. All hail the darkness.

The Spectre

This is a piece I created for a submission to a group Halloween show in Massachusetts. I will tell you all more about it if I get in. Anyhow, I like how it turned out.

Skeleface or die and come back as this thing.

Forest Dweller in a Strange Land

Skeleface or die.


A new collaborative endeavor between Ric Schuster, Sean Monahan, and yours truly. Hope you like brains. Check it out.

Skeleface or die. Then return as a zombie. Then die again at the blunt end of my crowbar.


Hey Skelefolks,

Here is the revised, and incidentally final, version of Jimmy Calabrese's portrait. It turned out well, I think, and it was a blast, really, going back into this piece and reworking it. It is up on House of Mysterious Secrets, and you should all check it out.

Horror forever. Skeleface or die.

Calabrese=Kickass Horror Rock

That's right, these boys are crankin' out the tunes full of death, destruction, ghouls, ghosts, vampires, and everything else that my life revolves around. I have been listening to these fellas for a while now, and have always been impressed by the artwork used on their albums, posters, and merch. So, naturally, when I found out they are DIY and hire on artists themselves, I did my best to appease the Horror Gods, and they were kind enough to give me a shot. So, I was hired to dress up their blog for them with a header, blog-separator, and a portrait of my good man, Jimmy Calabrese. So here are the finished pieces, and I encourage you all to CHECK THESE GHOULS OUT!!! Website AND BLOG, House of Mysterious Secrets. Seriously, super catchy music, with awesomely dark lyrics, all wrapped up in a screaming, bloody bundle. So here are the pieces.

This one is an image for the break in between blog posts, similar to IWYS.

This is the title banner for the blog, House of Mysterious Secrets.

And this is the portrait of Jimmy Calabrese, who enjoys skeletons, H. P. Lovecraft, and The Creature From the Black Lagoon.

So, I would just like to formally thank Jimmy again for giving me the opportunity to make some work, and I will try my damndest to keep getting the word out about you boys!

Davey Wong's Wonderous Work ...whoa.

Seriously, I stumbled across Davey Wong's work as a fellow supporter of AKU Wear and man, it made my day. This guy's paintings of this wicked looking ape dressed up as all kinds of Golden Era pulp archetypes are amazing, but what really caught my eye were his paintings of Hedorah, the Smog Monster from the Godzilla series. My love for the idea of Hedorah goes deep, and Davey has captured the character in an amazing light. So, take a look at these pictures that he so graciously allowed me to post, and then CHECK OUT HIS WEBSITE! You won't regret it.
