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.

DARKWAVE: The Art of Dewey Guyen

Samples from two pieces submitted for the Dewey Guyen DARKWAVE show at Push/Pull Gallery. 
I'm very excited to be part of the DARKWAVE: The Art of Dewey Guyen show happening Sat. May 14th at Push/Pull Gallery in Ballard.

This show is featuring incredible underground weirdness by young Canadian artist Dewey Guyen and guest art honoring the works of Dewey Guyen by local talent like myself, Marc J Palm, Seth Goodkind, Marie Hauser, and Jason Middleton.

This should prove to be a provocative and heady visual experience.

Push/Pull's offical statement for the show is as follows:

May 14th, during the Ballard Art Walk, we open DARKWAVE, Dewey Guyen's much anticipated premiere in a US gallery.

Dewey Guyen is a young Canadian illustrator/painter/cartoonist born on April 17th, 1992 in a refugee camp at Galang, Indonesia from Vietnamese/American and Cambodian/Chinese parents. Growing up and living between Sherbrooke & Montreal in the province of Quebec, greatly inspired by underground cartoonists, german expressionism & medieval engravings. He started publishing his first comics/illustrations inside fanzines locally & in France at the age of 12 and never stop since, cumulating publications worldwide with art publishers such as Le Dernier Cri, SSE Project, Kuš!, United Dead Artists & Timeless Editions. His signature style varies depending on the media used, but it is mostly rooted in careful attention to technical details & dark/surrealist/nightmarish subjects.

Local artists were given the following description as inspiration from Dewey:
early 80's punk/new wave/goth teenagers aesthetics for the characters, abandoned cemeteries/punk squats, invisible evil spirits/crawling demons/strange and hungry animals, surrealistic horror/scary dream visions, scenes of forest/lakes at dawn with high wind/rain, animal skulls, infestations of rats/bats/owls/frogs/crows/snakes/insects, apocalyptic hellmouth visions, mysterious creeping aliens

Art Opening May 14th 6-10pm, art is on dispaly through June 8th.

The Walking Dead Sketch Cover

The Walking Dead full marker color cover

The Walking Dead inked cover

I was at Wizard World comic convention Portland, OR in Feb. vending next to legendary Tim Vigil (Faust), he was inking up a sketch cover and I asked him how artists got a hold of those. He handed me one and said "if you sell it you owe me two bucks." So I started drawing up man v undead conflict. I got the inks done at the convention. Then later colored it with Spectrum Noir markers. Now I owe Tim $2.

Skin & Bone Slinky

My friend Helen Hopley commissioned me to draw up the "Slinky" creatures from her husband Martin Roberts story as a gift to him for Christmas. It is always fun to work with friends and attempt to put images to their words.
This was a challenge as to show the scope of how big and weird these are while retaining some detailed understanding of what they consist of which is flesh and bone.

From Sam Cowan, editor of Dim Shores Press on the cover reveal "Stag in Flight by S.P. Miskowski with art by Nick Gucker has a new cover design, courtesy of the remarkable Matthew Revert.
