retreating into the darkness

(ADULT CONTENT BELOW)

     This is just a shadow of the vivid image I can imagine of what will hopefully become a full-fledged fuzzy skeletonian.  I can see him in my mind, a fascinating waking nightmare:

     I’m backed into a cave and he’s shambling towards me, a wild look in his eyes, blood spraying and dripping from his mouth as he shakes his head in a frenzy of uncontrollable rage, lust and a kind of disoriented confusion.  He’s fully erect and ejaculating freely as he approaches.  The fuzzy, furry connective tissue between his bones is matted and filthy with an obscene offal of blood, semen, grease and who knows what else.  It’s day time and behind him I can see golden sunlight pouring into the mouth of the cave but I’m retreating into the darkness behind me, trying to be inconspicuous, banking on his confusion to give me an opportunity to slip by undetected and make my escape.

     That’s as far as this scene has progressed in my mind.  I hope to be able to post updates about this developing morbid fantasy as it hopefully continues to evolve into what I hope will be an extremely vivid horrific painting.

     Well, work is slammin’ me again.  I’m in the middle of a 13 day week and it SUUUUUUUCKS!  You know, I don’t ask for too much from life.  I mean, seriously, is having my weekends free without having to burn valuable vacation days that hard to achieve!?

     Anyway, I apologize if I’ve been aloof, flat, absent or otherwise not my usual self lately.  Hopefully, I’ll be back to my usual shenanigans as the holiday breaks restore my precious precious energy.

Fuzzy Giveaway 2011!

     The Fuzzy Skeletonian Insane Mega-Giveaway is officially closed and the good news is all three of you who signed up and participated in this year’s Octoberween-Palooza-Ganza are GUARANTEED to receive your very own Fuzzy Skeletonian orginal artwork!

     The EVEN BETTER news is that you will have a little say in which of my fuzzy fellas you receive!  I know I originally stated that it would be a random giveaway but since there are a whole ten skellies up for adoption and only three of you signed up, I’ve decided give you all a chance to state your preference.

     So, what I need from each of you is to take one more look at all ten and then email me with the names of three (3) you wouldn’t mind receiving.  Please don’t tell me your favorite or list them in order of preference (I don’t need that kind of pressure, man!), just the three names in no particular order.  Also, don’t forget to include your current mailing address.  If you don’t happen to have a preference or would rather be surprised, please state that in your email.

     In the end, everyone will still receive only ONE original artwork but at least this way you will have some say in the matter.  So, let me know as soon as you have a moment.  I will, of course, wait for all three emails before I mail anything off.

     Thanks again for all your comments and taking the time to actually participate in my OPG!

happy accidents and goofy skellies

(ADULT CONTENT BELOW)


     These two ended up being an awkward pair of companion pieces when one of my wet/dry sandwiches went awry.  The face didn’t transfer over to the other side, as I had used up all of my first batch of chunky, Crayola slurry prior to starting on this venture.  While I think the face side turned out pretty well, the other side ended up being more of a background than a finished work so I took the hint and painted my goofy, bad-day skellie on top of it.  Ended up being a learning experience and the first time I created a background before the main subject of the work.

magma injection

     Some marker from earlier this year.  I like this guy ’cause he looks like he’s being injected with some sort of magma or liquid fire.  That’s all I’ve got I guess.  My interests are really trending more towards painting lately.  In fact, that’s what I’m itching to do right now.

     Oh yeah, I know this blog isn’t a big draw for bad movie lovers but if you happen to need something fun to do tonight, check this out!  I’ll be there, yucking it up with the rest of the crew.

     This guy’s face ended up reminding me of the Looney Tunes Tazmanian Devil, although it took me a few minutes to finally zero in on it.  This guy is also the tenth and final Fuzzy Skeletonian up for adoption in the giveaway!  Wooo!  (sign-up sheet here)

running away

     I got all fancy with this one and decided to use a landscape orientation.  Not sure if I made it landscape to accomodate him running away or whether I drew him running away because the orientation lent itself to it.  Whatever the case, it makes you wonder what (or who) he’s running away from.  (sign-up sheet here)

blood fist

(ADULT CONTENT BELOW)


     This is one of three fuzzy skellies I originally completed for the giveaway that I simply couldn’t bear to part with.  This guy really came together as a fairly focused composition.  Plus there’s just something so compelling about a bloody fist.

     I’ll get back to my Blot Faces series with my next post.  Things have been a little crazy today so I opted for something short and simple.

     Got another hunchback for ya.  Do these guys have great jaws or what?  I absolutely love anybody with a robust skull or jaw bone.  I’m always like, “I want their skull when they die!”  I’m sure Bruce Campbell and Robert Zdar would love to know that about me.  (sign-up sheet here)

     This was one of the first giveaway skellies, completed shortly after (if not immediately after) blood drool.  This guy seems more contemplative, leaning back with his head propped up, perhaps thinking about why he has only hair for teeth.  (sign-up sheet here)

one-eyed hunchy

     Another familiar face from earlier this year but here he is in detail, not constantly building himself up and tearing himself down.  If he ends up among the adopted I’ll do a couple of small touch-ups on him before sending him off to his new home.  (sign-up sheet here)

     Man, look at that ooey-gooey, Gummi bear brain!  You could just pop it in your mouth and om nom nom.  What do you imagine the flavor to be, cherry, strawberry or just thick and musky bloody blood?  (sign-up sheet here)

hey man nice shot

     I’m proud of the teeth on this guy.  And the chin.  Maybe this is Bruce Campbell in an alternate reality where some necromancer has cast one too many drain life level spells on him.  Whatever the case, here’s the latest giveaway item. (sign-up sheet here)

armpit cock

     Next up in the giveaway is, well… this guy.  Not sure where this one came from but I’m guessing you can’t get much more original than this.  I mean, who has a huge cock coming out of their armpit?  Nobody, that’s who! (sign-up sheet here)

lamp skellie

     Here’s a familiar face you may recall from last year.  He’s my continual companion/specter/muse at my art table.  For a good part of the year he decided to perch himself atop my trusty banker’s lamp to supervise my work.  He looked so good I decided to take a picture.  After futzing around with the image a bit this is what I ended up with.

blood drool

     Here’s the very first Fuzzy Skeletonian up for giveaway.  You know him, you love him, he’s Blood Drool Skellie!  Come on and give Daddy a big hug!! (sign-up sheet here)
