Spitting Image: Deadtime Stories

2

When I was a “kiddie” my Aunt gifted me a small tv for my bedroom. Late at night when I was supposed to be sleeping, I would turn on Tales From The Crypt. My Grandma who I lived with at the time was very religious and anything horror was considered “of the devil” so I would make sure to turn the volume down low as I curled up in my bedding for “deadtime” story time with the Crypt Keeper.

My Mom had introduced me to horror and these moments of young-ghoul-rebellion were very freeing from the life I was forced to live after she had passed away. They gave me something to look forward to late at night. It was a time by myself away from the hell I was living during the day.

Tales From The Crypt TV Show

In 2009 when Frank and I got married I designed a Tales From the Crypt comic inspired wedding program that we passed out to all of our guests.

In 2018 we had the honor of meeting John Kassir at Days of the Dead and we shared stories with him and told him how much the show meant to us. He told us how he loves hearing these stories and how amazed he still is knowing how determined so many “kiddies” were to watch the show.

Needless to say as a part of that special late night Kiddie Crypt Club, it was only a matter of time that I would be checking this art piece off my art bucket list. I present to you “Deadside Stories” a split face portrait done in pencil and chalk pastels in tribute to John Kassir and the Crypt Keeper…..

I can’t wait to cross paths with John once again so I can gift him the original art piece.

For any Boils and Ghouls who are interested in purchasing prints or wearing this art piece on a shirt, you can find them listed in my Etsy and Amazon shops. Prints will also be made available to purchase in store at Closet Collectibles in Crete, IL as soon as I make my next art drop.

Remains: Monstrous Decor Frames

0

Just boxed up and shipped off another custom Etsy order. This time the client requested 3 of my Monstrous Decor Frames in the various colors I usually do for my corpsified creations. What I love about them is that no two are ever a like. Here is how they turned out..

If you’re like me and like a good gothic, oddities type decor in your tomb sweet tomb (aka home) these are the perfect addition and great conversation starters. I find that they make great displays for Halloween, Horror and Gothic wedding photos, zombie walk photos and horror movie convention photos.

See more of my various creepy creations in the Remains section of my portfolio website. Feel free to contact me on my site or through Etsy to have one or more made custom for you!

Stay Spooky & Magical,
