Shadow Dance banner and linkREAD MY HORROR STORY: SHADOW DANCE | I spent my April-May 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!

Item Shop Guild logo/GoFundMe linkHELP ARTISTS AND VENDORS KEEP THEIR BUSINESSES AFLOAT | COVID-19 has led to the cancellation or postponement of conventions across the country. I'm a member of the Item Shop Guild, a collective of artists and vendors, many of whom make their livings from the con circuit. I'm blessed in that I have a job with a company considered essential, but others are facing months with severely reduced incomes.

The Guild has started a GoFundMe page to raise money to help our members through these very difficult times. Please go to https://tinyurl.com/GoFundISG to donate if you can and share this link with fellow convention goers, bloggers, anyone you can think of, to get the word out. Thanks, and be well!

Hush LIttle Baby print imageART SHOWCASE | Hush Little Baby has its roots in an early love of mythology and a personal fascination with wings. I really love drawing creatures with feathers, be they gossamer or feathered. It's one of the limited run large prints I made during the time when I regularly participated in convention art shows, but is also available as a mini print.

Where in the World is...? | UPDATE: It's official. Due to COVID-19, I will do no more shows in 2020, and considering the rise in cases recently, 2021 is in no way certain at this time. Stay tuned for announcements of online opportunities to see and purchase art (and maybe just hang out). Please continue to stay safe, take all precautions, and check here and my Facebook page for future developments.
