Perception of Pain and The Fuzzy Skeletonian

     I am pleased to announce that I am working with a newly formed band from Calgary, Canada called Perception of Pain.  Head on over and check them out!  They are interested in artwork for their merch sales that depicts pain and suffering.  Not exactly sure why they chose my style of art…


…but I guess life can surprise and mystify you at times : )

     I’ll keep you crazy kids posted as things progress here at The Fuzzy Skeletonian!

ZOMBIE BITES presents: Night of the Cauldron


     If you’re in the mood for some great Halloween horror, head on over to Jesse Campbell‘s ZOMBIE BITES for Night of the Cauldron (see my sidebar).  The first chapter is here, although you may want to wait for him to finish the whole story since there’s the very good chance that you’ll get totally sucked in (like me) and end up punching your head in panic while waiting for the next installment!

     Seriously though, the man can spin a great horror tale and each chapter so far has been super creepy and very well written, complete with equally great artwork.  So, head on over and jump right in or wait until it’s finished but DON’T MISS IT!!

Mr. Big Teeth and the end of OPG 2013: CruMpLe MaNiA!!


     Fwharrr!  Haven’t had much sleep the past two days and I’m feelin’ it :P  Anyway, thought I’d end the month strong with Mr. Big Teeth here.  I got all feathery-fuzzy with his hair too.  He’s almost wolfing out on me here!

     I hope you enjoyed CruMpLe MaNiA!! and if you want to slide in under the bell you have until the end of today to participate and get yourself some ding-dang artstuffs!

     Well,  that about wraps it up for this years OPG.  Thanks for taking an interest and I hope you have wonderfully horrific Halloween!!

red teeth and the Jernigan skull


     With this guy I think I was remembering a little of what I accomplished way back when with Jernigan’s skull.  The similarities being mainly the fuzzy seams between the bones of the skull and, I guess, the profile orientation.

     I was going to mention there was about ten years between this guy and the Jernigan skull.  Then I began thinking about whether or not I’ve made ten years worth of progress.  Now I’m sitting here wondering if I really care about the answer to that question.

the bloody mouth of self-examination


     This is harsh.  Staring at myself through these cumples all month.  I’m a scared, worried, anxious kinda guy it seems.  I guess if I wasn’t there would be something more than a little off about me.  Would probably have an inventory of body parts in my freezer or something.

blood puddle


     Hi Dad.  Whatcha bleedin’ about this time?  I guess I can’t tell if you’re bleeding or just sucking up the blood puddle left from who-knows-what.  Well, whatever you’re doing, I’ll leave you to it.

     This one’s a pretty recent crumple.  I’ve been trending towards red and/or bloody spots on the face.  Not sure what it is exactly but it sure adds some drama to the over all composition.  I guess blood will do that.

high velocity


     Here’s a fairly early crumple, before the red.  This guy’s got a sort of high velocity intensity to him.  All flyin’ up in the air and shit, lookin’ down, gonna fuck your shit up in a minute type of thing.  I like him.  ‘Least he’s in action, up to something, instead of cryin’ and worryin’ all the damn time.

fraidy twins

     These two make me uncomfortable.  I guess no one likes looking at their own fear and otherwise neurotic states.  But, hey, this is good news for you wacky kids!  The Fraidy Twins here are a package deal, two for one, BOGO, 50% off, everything must go-type of deal.  If you’re amazing enough to donate AND get the chance to pick these guys (remember: first come, first serve) then you’ll get a PAIR of original artworks!  So, help me enhance my comfort level and get these guys out of my house, will you?
