Barnabas Collins WIP

I love Dark Shadows.

Even though I'm not old enough--I don't get to say that nearly enough--to have seen it during its original run on tv, the local PBS station aired it every night at 11 in the late 80's, and I watched it then and fell in love with the gothic melodrama of it all.

I enjoyed the half-season run of the early 90's revival series as well.  I thought Ben Cross was a fine Barnabas Collins, just not as good as Jonathan Frid.

I plan on seeing the new film, and I have yet to be disappointed in a Burton/Depp collaboration, and I'm sure I'll enjoy it on its own merits.

However, the original source material will always be my favorite, and so I thought I'd share with you a work-in-progress of Barnabas Collins, as brought to (un)life by Jonathan Frid.

It's not a perfect likeness, but I don't really need it to be. If it's recognizable as Frid, I've done well enough. I'll keep you updated on the progress--I really only get to sit down and draw for a few minutes at a time anymore.

 I hope you'll keep checking back to see it, plus I've got a bit of big news for later in the summer that I hope you'll enjoy and help me share.

 Keep creating!

Something New...

So, just to prove that I haven't been completely idle during my forced internet exile, I thought I'd share with you something I've been working on during my breaks at school.  It's kind of a sketch for a larger piece I have in mind, but I'm kinda liking the way the sketch is coming out, too.

The Visitor
Hopefully you like it; as usual, I'm having fun working on it and seeing where it's taking me.

Thanks for looking,

Time Flies When You Wish You Were Having Fun...




It's taken me this long to be able to get back here. Due to problems with my mother's computer--and my complete lack of one--I haven't been able to get here since October.

I got a NookColor for Christmas (wonderful, wonderful thing...), and while it's taken care of my general "webless-ness", I have trouble with blogger on it.

I have been busy, however, and will be sharing some new stuff very soon, but first things first:

I have drawn at random a winner from the folks who were kind enough to comment during my Halloween post-a-thon so very, very long ago. I apologize for taking so long with it, but computer issues really have been to blame.

Without further ado, the winner of the free print-of-choice is:


Congratulations, Kaycee! If you want one, I'll be happy to make you a print of any of the images I posted in October.

And now, I need to go get more stuff ready for Halloween 2012...sounds ominous already, dunnit?
