One of my favorite movies to revisit in the summertime is 'Children of the Corn'. It was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid, I watched it A LOT. Also I had a huge crush on Isaac.
I've been trying to get around to finishing this duo for awhile. This is another one of those circumstances where I actually started working on a piece, two or three years ago. I got about halfway through it and decided it wasn't working for me, so I abandoned it. A few months ago I started working on a new version, and here it is!
This could also go along with my Kids of Horror pieces I've been doing this year.

Hey Everybody! This coming Sunday is my birthday, and I thought that I might have a sale. Maybe I can make enough money to buy myself something nice.
So here's how the sale works:
Handy Dandy Instructions!
1) Pick out the two prints you want my clicking on the PayPal button for each print.
2) Once you select your prints, go to check out. When you are checking out there should be a place to add a note to seller. In that box, please write in 'Happy Birthday Belle Dee' and what print you would like for FREE!
You can ask about prints that I've had in the past, but don't have currently listed. Some include my Monsters & Mates series & my Dark Shadows pieces (Angelique & Quentin and Julia Hoffman). I have limited numbers of these.
Instead of a FREE print, you may also request this set of four monster head stickers
These are 3" round on vinyl. These are also limited.
I'm trying to not make this super complicated, but feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks and happy shopping!

Well, it's been about a month since I posted something new! Last week I completed this piece: Christina from the Hammer film 'Frankenstein Created Woman'. This was my third attempt at doing a piece featuring her, and I was thrilled to actually finish it! A few months back, I started doing a bunch of sketches for what I hoped would be a series of 'Big Head' Hammer Girls. They would all be in a similar style to Christina here. Hopefully I can get back to that project soon. I also have some new 'Kids of Horror' sketches done, that I want to finish before the summer is over.
But even though I want to finish these projects, I have but one thing on the brain right now... Halloween! Some might say it's too early to be thinking about such things, but I'm trying to prepare for the Countdown to Halloween now, so that I'm not scrambling the last week of September, trying to pull something together. Also I'm making a rather ambitious Halloween costume this year. I'll be starting that project pretty soon, since I only sort of know what I'm doing and I want to make sure I have time to troubleshoot & figure things out. Fingers crossed that I'll have pics to share for the countdown.

I didn't have time to post this before I left for this year's Wonderfest, but here is my latest piece. From one of my favorite Hammer films, 'Dracula, Prince of Darkness'.
Also, I had more stickers made! You can get your own Nosferatu sticker here.
I will be updating the prints page soon. I also have monster head stickers to add.
I may try later today. It just seems like every time I try to add or take out stuff, it's a major battle to get the PayPal codes to work. It makes me want to bang my head against the wall.

I've been busy trying to get myself ready for Wonderfest at the end of the month and my brain is fried. I completed some artwork for the Wonderfest kids t-shirts (which I'll reveal at a later date) and this weekend I finished this Comedy of Terrors piece featuring Peter Lorre, Vincent Price & 'Rhubarb' the cat.
Now back to work!!

Here is my most recent version of Oliver Reed's werewolf from Hammer's CURSE OF THE WEREWOLF. Back in 2009 when I started this blog, I was also participating in the Classic Horror Film Board's 'Classic Monster Art Challenge'. Each month we had a different topic to draw and in May 2009 the theme was Lycanthropy. So of course being the Hammer fan that I am, I picked COTW. If you care to go back and look at my first attempt, just follow this link. The post also includes a couple of other pieces I did for some of the other challenges. It's amazing to me to see how my style has evolved as well as how much better I've gotten in the past 5 years.
I've been trying to post at least once a week here, and so far this year I've been doing pretty good (Yay me!) I have a Nosferatu piece that will be done as soon as I figure out the background and an Invisible Man piece in the works! Hopefully one of those will be ready next week.
