Happy Halloween! “Skull Goddess” is an exploration into the lighter side of the macabre. It’s inspired by my recent trip to Southeast Asia, primarily Bayon of Angkor Wat, Cambodia, and the White Temple of Thailand, which depicts modern scenarios of good vs. evil. I created this via the usual pen/ink and graphite media, with a smidget of digital coloring. The pigments are kept to a minimum to highlight the details, but to also echo the stone carvings of the ancient temples.
This piece is available as an 8.5″ x 11″ art print HERE ON ETSY
“Animal Skulls and Teeth” is a 3-piece pinback button set that was created and produced from my own photographs. The images were taken at the zoo and educational sites. This is a must-have for anyone interested in horror, anatomy and the life sciences. For a small price, you can indulge in the complex world of the afterlife and add these buttons to your collection or as a small gift for your friends or family. AVAILABLE HERE ON ETSY.
“Horror Moth” is a skeletal rendering of the metamorphic creature. It seems in Western cultures, the moth represents horror, with the qualities of fragility and death, while in Japanese folklore, such as “The Dream of Akinosuke”, it represents a departure of souls. This is available as a t-shirt and entirely customizable. Check it out HERE
I’ve always admired the ferocious horns of the Dynastinae or Rhinoceros Beetles, so I combined them with a human rib cage, eyeball and beautiful wings. It’s enjoyable exploring sinister creatures and insects. The first was “Deathly Scarab”–perhaps a whole series to come! 🙂 The piece was created with pen/ink and Photoshop coloring.
Had lots of fun creating this mini collage banner showcasing some of my art for the Sinister Creature Con. It’s happening this weekend (October 17th & 18th) at the Scottish Rite Center in Sacramento. There will be amazing effects, filmmakers, and awesome horror creature creations–all devoted to the horror genre! Check it out HERE!
“Deadly Beauties” is a 3-piece pinback button set that was created and produced from my original artwork. This is a must-have for anyone interested in horror and pop-culture: a beautiful vampiress, zombie girl and a Day of the Dead queen. Indulge in the beauty of the underworld: AVAILABLE HERE ON ETSY.
I’ve always been a fan of James Cameron’s Aliens film series and an even bigger fan of H.R. Giger. I grew up watching the series with my bro and it always held a nostalgic quality for me, so I created this Aliens Movie Tribute Art series with a touch of Celtic quality to them. Why Celtic? I love the interlocking qualities of the shapes and forms, which echoes the creature forms a bit and I also wanted to elevate the evolution of the aliens as a beautiful creation.
