Moon of the Wolf


I also loved this werewolf story from Batman. Great story by Len Wein, and great art from Neal Adams and Dick Giordano. Very dynamic panel design, so much movement, and with great clarity. Feels cinematic, like a tight little b movie classic.

Werewolf by Night

This year some of my posts will be like this--quick, loose, fun little crayon drawings of monsters I loved as a kid. I loved this comic from Marvel, Werewolf by Night.

A Few Words

So I'm a painter, living and working in Brooklyn since 1991. There are links to more work on the right. A few years ago I started this blog just to take part in Countdown to Halloween. Since I work with imagery from B movies in the public domain, sometimes I post work here that I've already made that fits the seasonal bill. But it's more fun to post work that I make specifically to share here, as with most of what I'm posting this year. It takes me back to my days as a kid in Toledo, watching Detroit monster movie host Sir Graves Ghastly in the basement, drawing epic monster battles on reams and reams of newsprint paper. I work mostly in the same style I use for my paintings, smudged and scraped and painterly, and sometimes I use random pictures from movies, sometimes I pick them more carefully. Generally I like the quiet moments, and the weird, and the funny. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy what you see here. Happy Halloween....
