The magazine did a tribute to Nightmare on Elm Street and us being huge Robert Englund fans, we could not be more honored to be a part of it.

Spitting Image: The Exorcist Was On..

0

So if you are a Scream fan you will read the title of this entry and finish it by saying…. “It Got Me Thinking Of You”.

tumblr_oxbn755knL1u4kolmo6_400One of the most iconic “pick up lines” ever to hit the screen and leaving most girls saying “What the hell?” yet still being completely ok with it. That’s because it was said by no other than Billy Loomis (Skeet Ulrich) shortly after crawling through Sydney Prescott (Neve Campbell)’s bedroom window.

So that leads me to my latest portrait I am marking off my art bucket list. You guessed it. It’s called “The Exorcist Was On” and it’s dedicated to Skeet Ulrich and his portrayal of Billy and Ghostface in the 90’s iconic horror film Scream! This one is far overdue. I have been a fan of the original movie since the 90s and Skeet (as well as Luke Perry) are the reason I started to tune in to the TV show Riverdale. And don’t even get me started on how excited I was when they paid homage to Scream on the show and he came through the Cooper’s window! So enough about how much I love Scream and Skeet Ulrich. Here is the final split face portrait to show you just how much I love them….

Spitting Image: Ketchup

0

originalLast year when I was vending at the Hardcore Hearse Club’s Annual Hearse Show a customer purchased a print of my “Naturally Born Bad” portrait of Juliette Lewis as Mallory Knox. They asked me if I had anything Pulp Fiction based. At the time I did not have anything but I told them I was a big fan of the film and had something visually in my mind and on my art bucket list.

My vision was focused on one of my favorite actresses, Uma Thurman (who I have drawn in the past as Poison Ivy) and her character Mia Wallace (who I had even dressed up as for Halloween a few years back). I call this new Spitting Image, split face portrait … “Ketchup” and it focuses on the 2 looks we see of Mia when she has that adrenaline-filled date night with Vincent Vega.

Days of The Dead Chicago 2018

This weekend was yet another epic one for horror fans like us attending Days of the Dead “Chicago”. For my husband and myself, we were celebrating another horror-themed weekend away for our belated wedding anniversary. A stay-cation, scare-cation or whatever you want to call it. Either way, it was a nice end to a stressful work week for us to unwind and be surrounded by all things creepy.

Thursday evening I got convention prep ready and bagged up my original Chop Driftwood and #SELFIE art pieces to gift to Bill Mosely and David Howard Thornton.

2018-11-16 Days Of The Dead Convention Prep

On Friday we got checked into the hotel, settled in and got a bite to eat. When the convention opened we went downstairs to find Bill’s table first. I loved the way he really took in the art piece when I handed it to him. He looked it over and was smiling at it and loving the whole concept of it being 2 of his characters in one piece. He even put it up behind him on his little display table and gave me a big hug as well as some Chop Top buttons and stickers. We bought a Chop Top metal plate for our collection and he signed it for us. Another memorable moment added to my art bucket list as well as a new memory shared with Bill that we can add to all the others from over the years.

We saw that David Howard Thornton was at his table so we went directly there to meet him next. Not only was he as nice as we had expected, but he kept telling me how talented I was and loved getting to see my “Art” piece in person. He had commented on it on Instagram so he had seen it before. But he was even more pleased that I was gifting it to him personally. On top of all my art bucket list excitement, he had my favorite Terrifier scene in an 8×10 photo for signing so I had to have it. He gave us a great deal as a thank you.

But it gets even better…. when we went to take a photo with him he let me hold Art The Clown’s horn!  Let’s just say I was a giddy living dead girl and you can see it all over my face in this photo…

As you can see I arrived at the con rocking one of my favorite shirts from one of my favorite movies, Repo The Genetic Opera. That was not just because we would be seeing Bill. The convention added a few late guests to the list and the one and only Paul Sorvino was one of them. My husband (who also loves Repo) and I were in complete awe when we met him. I mean it was Rotti Largo right in front of us.

Paul Sorvino

Not only was he very welcoming and happy to meet his fans but he got a huge smile on his face when we told him we wanted him to autograph “keep those vultures guessing” on our photo. He started to say the lines from the movie and it was all around epic. The next day at the convention we actually even heard him sing!

Epic didn’t stop there. My husband and I got to live out a childhood dream nightmare come true. We got to meet THE CRYPT KEEPER! That’s right, we got to meet John Kassir and actually hear him say Boils and Ghouls as he signed his autograph for us.

2018-11-17 Days Of The Dead John Autograph.jpg

He was a really funny guy and even laughed like the Crypt Keeper when we were taking our photo with him.

2018-11-17 Days Of The Dead John Kassir
I told him how I use to sneak watching Tales From The Crypt. I would turn it on late at night in my room when my Grandparents would fall asleep. He told us he actually hears stories like that a lot and it amazes him how determined so many young ones were to watch the show. He also told us we were a great looking couple. So we are now officially Crypt Keeper approved ha ha. I mean what better way to add a chapter to your love story than to tell people the Crypt Keeper thinks we look good together.

I wanted to also give a shout out to our pal Sid Haig who was not able to attend the convention this weekend. We missed you Sid, but we are so much happier knowing you are home with Suzie and still safe right now from the fires in California. Love you and we will catch you at the next one.

Stay Spooky!
