One of my favorite silver screen femme fatales from the golden age of cinema is the lovely Rita Hayworth…

The Bloke’s Terrible Tomb of Terror # 16 is now available and it includes “Into the Wychwood,” a story I illustrated written by the Bloke himself, horrormeister Jason Crawley.  The story was inspired somewhat by the old STRAWBS song, “Into the Witchwood.”  An intrepid crew of space explorers check out an alien planet with abundant tree growth and some very weird stuff happens!  Tomb of Terror # 16 (which also features a fantastic cover by Mike Hoffman) can be ordered direct from The Bloke @ https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/511863988/pdf-download-issue-16-blokes-terrible?ref=listing-shop-header-0

I’ve been doing a lot of work recently for THE CREEPS magazine, a horror anthology that’s a creepy throwback to the old Warren titles, Creepy and Eerie!  It’s been fun drawing these stories and working with such master writers such as Nicola Cuti and Don Glut, among others!  Here’s a couple of splash pages from my stories appearing in THE CREEPS # 11, available now at fine comic shops and Barnes & Noble book stores everywhere!  You can also order THE CREEPS direct from http://www.thecreepsmagazine.com/

AAARRGGHH!

It’s been a bad day for drawing!

One of those days where my mind has been as blank as the virtual paper in front of me!

I was looking forward to doing a lot of drawing, too.  After a forced vacation of a few days due to the heat wave, I was just chomping at the bit to get working again!  The weather has finally improved… going from a high of 118F a couple days ago to a wonderful 54F this morning; a great working temperature!  Bet you can tell I’m not a big fan of the heat!

Anyway… two pages left to draw on this Last Survivor story by Michael Leal… and I’m drawing a blank!  Always frustrating when the finish line is so close!  Not to mention that I’m trying to meet a deadline too!!

I’ve tried my motivation tricks: looking at inspiring art, chatting with a couple other artists, listening to music… meditating… but none of the wild characters and crazy monsters want to come out and play on the page right now – even though they seem to be having a hell of a time in my brain!

Well, I guess it’s time to pack it in for a bit… recharge the batteries, maybe with watching an old Tarzan movie, or better yet a Hammer flick… and give it another shot in a few hours!

Sooner or later the insane creatures that inhabit my mind will want their freedom!  And I’d better be ready to give it to them!
