FATHERS DAY

Its fathers day today so I thought why not rush of a quick back from the grave image of rotten ole Dead Nate from the amazing Creepshow movie.


See, it's not only wedding cakes that end up with tiers.

ALIENS on BOARD!

Yeah I've owned this artwork for a while and as I rarely look at these I decided to sell them off , these are actual Alien Ressurection storyboards used in the production of the movie and I am sorry but I  have no idea who the artist here is, if anyone is able to shed any light on the name and would be all too pleased to give him or her credit here.
I recently sold these along with a nice kit model of the space jockey from Alien movie by Halcyon, of which I took some nice photographs of before packaging up and shipping off.

BAD MOON RISING


 
"BLUE MOON You saw me standing alone Without a dream in my heart Without a love of my own.." 

Last night January 31st 2018 was the second full month in that calendar month according to moon scientists technically that makes it a super blue blood moon.

 In commemoration I snapped a photo of the glorious lunar phenomenon the blue moon from my bedroom window. 

Originally by Sam Cooke, Blue Moon by Bobby Vinton was also the slow and soothing song you hear during the opening credits of American Werewolf in London and so why not make this the excuse to post up another American werwolf drawing.  



"Beware the moon"

















After arriving at the convention , despite having paid the early doors premium I ended up queuing for nearly an hour , that was mainly because I was so enthusiastic I turned up early,  inside the venue I eventually made my way round to the very very busy signing area, in hindsight I should have headed here promptly as it was extremely popular.
Firstly there was large central holding pen to hold the masses which meant waiting again for close to an hour before you could join the lengthy queues at the appropriate desk of your chosen celebrity, where you were faced with yet more queuing, it was slow moving and I later discovered the reason why.
 Eventually I got to meet David Naughton - it has to be said he is an incredibly nice person and that made the wait totally worth it, he didn't rush seemed genuinely interested and engaged in the conversation and as great as this was it was also the reason behind the treacle speed queue that I had been trapped in. After a lot of very nice banter with David, I thanked him and of I went to purchase some Game of Throne coasters, here I took out my cash to pay I had the sudden realization that being so engrossed in chatting I hadn't paid David for his autograph!  Feeling guilty I turned back to go hand over the money but found the area was still thronged with so many many people waiting and waiting there was just no way I was could go through all that again!

 I feel bad about being a non-payer and fearfully daydream that on the nest night of a full one when I'm sat watching the Muppet Show he's gonna would turn up on my doorstep for payment in full....

RE-ANIMATOR

Cartoony funny time, one of my favourite of the wall loony horror film, Stuart Gordon's Re-Animator drawn here with some added cat poop.


It looks like a 2b but that's a HB Lovecraft pencil.

WHO YOU GONNA CALL?

More moleskin sketchbook pages, this time of the creepy creepy ghost that Patrick encounters on the sub way, wonderfully played by Vincent Schiavelli , there's a scene in the movie where he breaks open a cigarette machine desperate to have another smoke, in real life he passed away at 57 of lung cancer.

Okay not really much else to see or for me to add so here's a random film based fact: in Ghost the sound of actual babies crying was played in reverse to make that weird sound of the dark shadows that appear to drag the dead evil doers soul away.

If you upset a ghost on an outward part of a return train journey you know it'll come back and haunt you.
