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, London after Midnight [1927]
Lon Chaney, man of 1000 faces and the star of countless horror films including the lost and much sought after silent movie from which this image is referenced. The last known copy of London after Midnight was destroyed in a fire in an MGM film vault in 1967.

Pencil Sketch Referenced From Movie, Dracula [1931]

 Lugosi stars in the timeless, Dracula. Even an 8 year old could see Bela Lugosi was a true original. Graphic simplicity and bold blacks in tribute to the master of horror film finesse. Long live Lugosi.

Dracula TM 1931 Universal Pictures.
