Bacon Fried Bastard!

New commission, a B&W poster I did as a promo piece for David W. Barbee's new novel BACON FRIED BASTARD. Coming soon to a BizarroCon near you!

Here's what David had to say about it:
"I’m VERY happy to announce that my next book has a promotional poster that’s as gorgeous and gruesome as the book itself. I’ve had a vision of floating crocodiles since I was a kid, and with Bacon Fried Bastard I finally had the junglepunk setting to feature them in a story. And as the scaly icing on the reptillian cake, I contacted Nick “The Hat” Gucker to create a poster that would visualize this monstrosity. As always he did a bang up job. Now I just have to get this righteous poster (and the book it’s based on) to the printer. Huge thanks to the talented Mr. Gucker. Bacon Fried Bastard will be coming soon…"

Bleedingham Festival of the Macabre and Bellingham ComicCon


I have a couple of shows in a row in Bellingham starting Friday (10/21/2016) evening from 5-10pm. The Bleedingham Festival of the Macabre is a Halloween night market in conjunction with the Bleedingham Film Festival. It's a first year event so we'll see how this pans out.
The next day (10/22/2016) I'll be vending at the Bellingham ComicCon in Ferndale from 10am - 5pm.
I came across these pre-cut Halloween wood shapes and decided I'd take a sharpie to them to see if I could sell a few to you wretched ghouls in anticipation of Halloween.
See you there, fiends!
