The Bride and Her Monster print imageART SHOWCASE | The Bride and Her Monster was inspired by the first time I saw the movie The Bride of Frankenstein with Boris Karloff and Elsa Lanchester. As a child I felt for the Monster who was rejected by everyone, so I gave him a happily ever after ending in this drawing. This is the first of my open run large prints, but it's also available as poster and mini prints.


ALSO AVAILABLE! Poster Prints (limited quantities) — Shop my store!

Shadow Dance banner and linkREAD MY HORROR STORY: SHADOW DANCE | I spent my Spring 2020 free time on a horror short story and cover art for the Inkitt Thrill Seeker Writing Contest. The concept came to me many years ago after watching a scene in Hitchcock's The Birds, but I was only recently inspired to take it beyond an idea.

In nature there is a role for each creature and plant. But all have this in common: they live and then they die. And if you're lucky, you'll never learn about the ones that deal with the aftermath.

The contest has closed, but you can still read Shadow Dance. Enjoy and thanks!

Where in the World is...? | UPDATE: The world is still an iffy place. SpoCon, which was to be held in October has been postponed, new date to come. I'm signed up for two live events in November and am keeping an eye out for more virtual and mail-in events. See the top of this page and my Events calendar for current events.

October Thought of the Month

"Obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it."
