psycho squirrel


AAAAAHHH!  THE HOUSE IS ON FIRE!  YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!  I SET YOUR HOUSE ON FIRE!!!!  AAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!

     Drawn shortly after heat tumor, I got half way through this and just stopped.  At the time it just looked stupid, like some dumbass squirrel or chipmunk or something.  Today, I was leafing through my sketchbook and I suddenly saw the humor in it.  So here he is:  Psycho Squirrel, off his meds, with a can of gas in one hand and a book of matches in the other.  You better hope your home owners insurance is paid up.

     I know, I know.  Here I go again with the cocks but this ended up being more than just an immature, self-indulgent cock painting.  I mean, sure, it STARTED that way but (as you can see) it ended up being pretty dang artsy fartsy, especially for me.  The colors really came together pretty well, if I do say so myself.  The blood vessel look came from simply sandwiching a liberal amount of paint between two sheets of watercolor paper and applying some smoothing pressure with a heavy metal ruler I had laying around.  It’s a really fast, fun technique to use and (depending on the colors you use) the texture ends up looking like blood, leather, vegetation, etc.

     As for content, I think this turned out pretty obscene.  I’m definitely no stranger to obscenity in my art but there’s something about the vivid red from the acrylic just makes me cringe a little, like I just witnessed, well…  a rape.  Or a murder.  Or both.  Yeah, a little nauseous maybe.  Heh, maybe I shoulda saved this for the OPG.  The best horror always includes more than a little real, human ugliness in it.

Summer, Fall and the OPG!

     Can you feel it?  The fever has broken.  Fall is on its way and Summer is going down for the count!  Hopefully, Summer has taken one too many head blows this year and will die from a massive brain hemmorage, never to return again.  In the meantime, the wife and I might be getting JUST A LITTLE excited about this coming October:


     Furthermore, it’s time I let all of you in on the craziness and mayhem that’s going down in less than a month.  LESS THAN A MONTH!!  I’m salivating.  And you should be too because very very soon I will unleash my:

OCTOBERWEEN-PALOOZA-GANZA!!!

Octoberween-Palooza-Ganza will consist of the following parts:

     First, I will be posting a minimum average of 1.39 original Halloween/Horror themed artworks each and every damned day THE ENTIRE MONTH of October!  Furthermore, the aforementioned minimum average is surely to increase as I squeeze in a few more artworks between now and then : D

     Second, aside from the obvious celebration of Halloween and Horror, I will also be celebrating just over a year since Vincent’s Handmade Art got off the ground!  Yay!  Woooo!

     Third, I would like to encourage everyone to participate in the spirit of the season and help me make the OPG something to remember.  I know this might take some work and (dare I say it) sacrifice, but I’m going to have to ask you all to take on the burden of blogging about Halloween or Horror sometime during the month of October.  I’m sorry to ask for such a unusual and taxing favor but it will be worth your time because by being an active participant in the OPG you will automatically be entered into:

FUZZY SKELETONIAN INSANE MEGA-GIVEAWAY!  FUZZY SKELETONIAN INSANE MEGA-GIVEAWAY!!  FUZZY SKELETONIAN INSANE MEGA-GIVEAWAY!!! FUZZY SKELETONIAN INSANE MEGA-GIVEAWAY!!1! FUZZY SKELETONIAN INSANE MEGA-GIVEAWAAAAAAAAAAYYY!!1!!

     That’s right, folks.  I am prepared to give up 10 of my fuzzy fellas for adoption BUT there’s a catch!  In order to be officially entered into the giveaway YOU HAVE TO PARTICIPATE in the OPG, as described above.  Now, I know what you’re thinking, “Well now, that’s not really a giveaway in the true sense of the word, now is it?”  Well, you know what?  SHUT UP!  This is MY HOUSE and we all have to play by MY RULES!  Besides, I’m asking you to jump through a pretty easy hoop for the very good chance of getting your hands on one of these:

Actual size 5.5″ x 7.5″ on 90lb. watercolor paper and more detailed than what the scan shows.


     This was the very first one I made this year and, therefore, represents the minimum level of quality you will witness from the inventory of Fuzzy Skeletonians I have to offer.  Now a few giveaway rules:

–  In order to be entered into the giveaway you must blog about Halloween or Horror and submit the link to me sometime during the month of October (if you don’t have a blog, please email me your entry and I will be happy to post it here during the OPG).

–  You can participate as many times as you like in the OPG but your participation will only make you eligible to receive ONE Fuzzy Skeletonian original artwork.

–  If there are 10 or less OPG participants this year, ALL qualified participants will be GUARANTEED to receive their very own Fuzzy Skeletonian artwork!  If there are more than 10 participants (I can only hope!) a random drawing will be held to determine who gets an artwork and who does not.

–  To add to the excitement, you will have no choice in which artwork you get!  All 10 fuzzy fellas will be displayed in detail during the OPG but you will not know which one you will ultimately get until you receive it in the mail!  Surprise!

–   Also, a little fair warning for those of you who are brand new to my blog.  All of my Fuzzy Skeletonian artworks will contain graphic violence and/or strong sexual content.  So, if you wish to still participate in the OPG but NOT be entered into the giveaway please let me know via email or comment.

     Finally, I have the obligatory blogathon banners for all you crazy kids.  Behold!

     Well, that about covers it for the OPG.  Now we all need to get our collective butts in gear and make sure we’ll be ready.  October’s coming fast and it’s going to give us all a good thrashing!
