Well... in about 30 days that is. It's kinda hard for me not to think of All Hallows Eve even when it's only October 1st. It just feels like like it, ya know? And I'm sure I'm not alone in that, as I walked outside today and the leaves on the ground were spinning around in a cool brisk circle. Ahhh, greatness.
Anyways, in celebration of the calender pages turning towards the great month of October I thought I'd post an illustration I did this past Summer. Makes sense, right? It will. Trust me. A little while ago I was asked by powerhouse writer-extraordinaire Mr. Gary Raisor (that's his official title actually) to illustrate a short story of his called Better Watch Out.
Gary is one of the most skilled authors I've ever had the pleasure of meeting or reading and of course it was an honor to be asked to work with him. So, in one of my finer displays of intelligence, I graciously accepted.
The story is also in conjunction with an interview Gary did with Mr. Andrew Monge of Horror Drive-In, a wonderful website for all things horror and scary-like (see, it all makes sense now. Halloween, scary, horror. Right?) And after reading the interview and listening Gary's funny and poignant comments I'm still on the fence as to whether the interview or the story is more entertaining... Ah, it's a tie. But I'll let you guys have the final vote. So click away right HERE and check out allllll of the goodness. It's guaranteed to make you laugh, shiver and think all at once.
AND as a bit of inside information, just between you and me, I'll be posting some info very soon about another project Gary and I are currently working on. But I'll keep that hush hush for the moment. Until then... Happy (almost) Halloween! Bwah hah ha haaaa! (I love doing that)
