Betsy Threatsy

Illustration of creepy-ass Betsy Threatsy I did for Jake Stratton, live barker for W.X.P.F.L. aka World Extreme Pencil Fighting League in Seattle, WA. This was supposed to be used for a coloring book of all the characters in the League. Not sure what came of it but realized I'd never posted it. Enjoy.

Quick 8x8" ink drawing I did while attending The Drawnk Show at Georgetown Liquor Co. in Georgtown, Seattle, June 11th. I touched it up afterwards with a bit of ink-wash, something I don't do too often.

"Creeping Waves" cover art by Nick Gucker ©2016
New cover art I did for Matthew M. Bartlett's newest collection "CREEPING WAVES, Broadcasts and Blasphemies" from Muzzland Press. Edited by Jonathan Raab with an introduction by Nathan Ballingrud.
This is a whole new collection of disturbingly weird and curiously unsettling works, including the novella 'RANGLE' that was published as a limited edition chapbook from Dim Shores press to great acclaim (which sold out quickly).

You can learn more about Matthew M. Bartlett and CREEPING WAVES from The Conqueror Weird and WXXT both run by Brian O'Connell.

 Here's what some folks who've read have to say:

“[Bartlett] gets under the skin and digs deep. There is a mad genius at work here…I very much look forward to more from Mr. Bartlett. Highly recommended, there is something special at work here.” 
~ JUSTIN STEELE, the Arkham Digest

“…as the year winds down and I look back over what I’ve read during the last twelve months, Matthew Bartlett’s fiction stands out as among my two or three real discoveries in that time.” 
~ JOHN LANGAN, author

"This book is smart, weird, horror, with a touch of absurd humor, black as the pit, and full of teeth."
~ Yves Tourigny

"Such a hefty collection of stories and vignettes and truly odd odds-and-ends could easily become a drag in less skilled hands, but Bartlett delivers with confidence and a unique voice that weaves it all together naturally. Despite the unnaturalness of it all."
~ Hitch Enslor

"CREEPING WAVES takes that cubist, self-referential, interconnected CREEPTASTIC energy of the first book and seemingly mainlines it back into itself. And thus if GATEWAYS is a poem, then CREEPING WAVES is a Bosch painting."
~ Brian Lillie

The Mummy

New Mummy print, based on Karloff's run of the Universal horror icon raised from the Egyptian dead. With a guest appearance from the lovely Zita Johann. Some of you may have already seen this in the wilds where it debuted at Emerald City Comicon this last April, then showed up at Monsterpalooza in Pasadena, CA, then again at HP Lovecraft Film Fest in San Pedro.
Be on the lookout for it again at Crypticon Seattle this Memorial Day weekend.

Screen printed black, silver and gold on chipboard stock, 16x20", from the inky fingers of masterful print art, Creepycult. Available at a convention probably no where near you. So they will soon be available via my Etsy shop online.
