Pardon Our Dust and Cobwebs
Well isn't this just a tiny bit embarrassing! Once upon a time I updated this site more than once a year, and now that my arachnid friends have moved in and put cobwebs everywhere it's painfully obvious that it's been over a year.
You'll notice one or two new items around the site. Specifically in the painting section. Since last May I was fortunate to be involved in a few more art shows. Most excitingly, and notably, was the "Classic Monsters Tribute Show" at Halloween Town here in Burbank, CA. It's not everyday I get to participate in a show with monster movie make-up greats like Rick Baker and Mike Hill. Sincerely, there was so much talent in that show that I felt like I was gonna explode. Unfortunately, my piece was so big that it may be a little hard to see here on the site, so for a better image, please feel free to check it out in my Pinterest Gallery.
The next show, after the Classic Monsters show didn't happen until June of this year (2013) and was entitled "Paper Trails". All artwork needed to be themed to involve paper in some way, shape or form. Mine is a little sickly sweet and entitled "Little 'Zilla's Wish". I wish the idea behind the piece was super deep and meaningful, but it's just Godzilla trying to wish humans away by folding 1000 paper cranes. Obviously we all know how that worked out for him. . . he never finished those cranes.
Oh! I nearly forgot a show! Back in May I decided it was time to try my hand at Vending a booth of my stuff. I applied to be a part of the
Bats Day Black Market. To those who don't live in Southern California or aren't big into Goth events, Bats Day is the one day of the year when Goths from all over decided to go have fun at Disneyland. They've kind of turned it into a convention now and they have a party on the Friday night before and then a Craft Fair/Market Place the Saturday before the event and it was there that I set up my booth. Things went well. I had fun meeting a bunch of people and I'd like to think that many people enjoyed my work.
In addition to the Bats Day Black Market, there was also a gallery show set up for attendees to view. Since Bats Day weekend also fell on the unofficial Star Wars day of May 4th, the show was a cross between Haunted Mansion Fan Art and Star Wars Fan Art. You can see my piece, "Help Us Master Gracey, You're Our Only Hope" over in the painting Gallery here on the site.
And that about wraps things up. If you find yourself in need of more frequent updates there are now multiple ways to follow your buddy the Boogervampire in addition to my Blog: Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Twitter (I don't really get Twitter, so my tweets are pretty boring), and Instagram!! Until next time (hopefully not a year from now), have fun, be safe and stay spooky cute!
