This blog was developed in order to showcase some of my more chilling concept work in progress as well as document early influences. These are visions of haunted dreams on darkest nights... distant memories to be relived over and again in fitful slumber:

It is a springtide in time forgotten; with eyes ajar, I can still feel my childish fingers brush lazily against long dry grass in a field that is littered with stones. A hazy sun slips behind the dark cool clouds. I wear cut-offs and squat barefoot on the graying loam. The goblins are here. I can see their dread features hidden in the twisted crags of broken rocks...drawn in shiver lines.

Pencil Sketch Referenced From Movie, Fright Night II [1988]

Fright Night [1985] was a favorite from first sight. With a cast that included the impeccable Roddy McDowall the charismatic and talented William Ragsdale. This image is from the sequel reprising much of the original cast; it's still fun with a few great visual effects, just not quite as cool as the original.

The Original from 1985...

...Part 2 from 1988

  ...and Now a remake from 2011. Maybe it will make 
some kids curious enough to see the classic version.

A Hammer Horror Tribute

>> Sunday, April 10, 2011

If you don't want to rock hard, my condolences... just mute the sound and get your imagination wired with the original cinema phantasmagoria of Hammer Films.

Hammer Films made high quality horror movies from the mid-1950s until the 1970s. Hammer utilized superstar acting talents such as Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Oliver Reed and Raquel Welch in many of their best known titles. As a teen, Hammer's drama and style glued my eyes to the TV screen and gave me electric inspiration to draw my own dark dreams.

Captain Kronos,Vampire Hunter and Father Shandor, Demon Stalker circa 1973-74 really grabbed my attention at 12. I guess cable TV in the 80's did affect young, because heroes who fought demons and the undead...Rocked.
