Digital painting. 16x20 inches at 400 DPI - many layers of swirling spirits in clouds and smoke, airships, buildings, and the main figure - each element decorated intensely with glyphs and scripts down to near-microscopic detail in each inch of the painting.

Snow, Glass, Apples
Acrylic and Digital | BUY PRINT HERE

Initially commissioned as a print for Neil Gaiman's Neverwear site, this project was consequently canceled. But I loved his short story, "Snow, Glass, Apples", and the work-in-progress so much that I finished it up anyway. :) The associated text read:

I like to think she played first with the ribbons, twined them into her raven hair, looped them around her pale neck or her tiny waist,

And then, curious, she moved the cloth to see what else was in the basket; and she saw the red, red apples.

They smelled like fresh apples, of course; and they also smelled of blood. And she was hungry. I imagine her picking up an apple, pressing it against her cheek, feeling the cold smoothness of it against her skin.

And she opened her mouth and bit deep into it...

There was no real reason behind this piece other than that I had an unpainted piece of wood and needed a three-day break from the commissioned stuff (I used 60 hours of which for this one).

Dropping my standard luminist style for this one, and though it is cartoony and simple, I still went pretty deep into the detail, painting many scales, variegated petals, and whatnot. Oddly enough, I found that it was the large areas of solid colors, and keeping the piece smooth and free of brushstrokes which sapped the most time.

Red Hand Assemblage

  Red Hand Assemblage Showing Hand

This artwork is three in one.

The box/dual frame: I labored hard for over a week on the box, which is a very sturdy hand-built, hand-stained, hand-varnished, hand-waxed chunk of quality hardwood (heartwood select pine base and birch sides). It not only serves as a box (if you would want to use it as such a thing), but as a self-contained double frame which requires no wall hanging. It is perfect for a coffee table, end table, mantle, dining table or most any flat surface you would like to display it on... and it is so sturdy in construction that you won't be freaking out if people get near it.

  Much news to behold in this update, hopefully in some sort of sensible order...

Tomorrow night- Friday April 23rd 2010- The Zombified will be returning once again to vend Numbers Nightclub in Houston, Texas.

Beginning the same day but in a different place in the world- the Motor City Nightmares convention runs through April 23rd-25th, which there will be two autographed copies of the latest issue (#3) of the Hallowhaus comic book series up for grabs!

Next weekend is- of course- April 30th - May 2nd. Yes, the mighty Texas Frightmare Weekend in Dallas, TX! The Zombified will be vending all weekend at this event, and yes, you may even spot me again at the Zombie Walk on Saturday!

The Zombified recently donated an original piece of custom artwork (the "Black Cat" drawing) to the Black Cat Rescue's current silent auction (or go to 32auctions.com and enter AuctionID: KittenSeason2010 password: BlackCatsRock), which is going on now through May 12th.

Not exactly news, but worth mentioning: The Zombified is indeed on Facebook, MySpace, and LiveJournal. Show me some love.
Fan Tarot 
04:14am 30/03/2010

I am currently working on a tarot deck revolving around images I have collected from my favourite band.  The band uses a lot of gothic imagery.  The deck is pretty dark, but not overly so, I think.  The cards are all basically collaged in photoshop.  I cut out all of the various pieces I need and mesh them together to make my card. 

Obviously this deck is not for any kind of commercial use because of copyright restrictions and whatnot, but I hope to make some actual physical decks for myself a few other fans.  I'm interested in seeing how the deck will read when I get to try it out.  Please feel free to friend my journal to watch my progress and to see what cards I have done so far.

I have an entry here that includes a close up of "Death".

Moths To The Flame 
09:29pm 17/01/2010
  I recently finished the cover for Astronaut Down's upcoming album, Moths To The Flame. It will be available on iTunes by January 25th, 2010 -- details for the release party in NYC here!

Moths To The Flame
Acrylic and Digital | BUY PRINT

The concept was pretty straightforward, harking to the album's title. Simultaneously, the client also expressed a desire to see a girl amidst an oppressive, scary environment -- with only a flame keeping the darkness at bay.

The flame is subtly drawn to evoke the shape of a phoenix -- a personal symbol I incorporated, and felt it wove into the evocation of the Dark Night of the Soul and consequent rebirth.
