I can’t believe it’s almost been a month since I’ve updated. I’ve maintained this blog fairly consistently for years. I haven’t even watched a scary movie in weeks. I really miss that.
What’s happened is life. I’m in mortuary school and class started. It’s online but it eats up quite a bit of time. My unemployment is close to running out so I’m desperately trying to find any job that will take me. I had some crazy flu thing that knocked me out for a good week. And I’m hurriedly making artwork for Walker Stalker Con 2014.
Here’s some of the stuff I’ve made, so you see my time hasn’t been entirely wasted.
My first piece is based on Soviet propaganda posters. I got the idea for it because of the signs leading to Terminus at the end of season four. I wondered what it would look like if Woodbury advertised.
My second piece shows my love for The Silence of the Lambs. It’s a collage with a portrait of Jame Gumb based on his appearance in the movie. The details I chose for the background were more influenced by what you learn about him in the book. It’s mixed media on a 2″ cradled gesso-board so it’s quite heavy. It incorporates real butterfly wings.
The next pieces I’m working on are drawings, which are always easier for me to produce. I’m feeling better so here’s hoping I can get back to my regular schedule because I miss movies and I miss my readers.
