I will document my process of painting the cover here.
More to come…
Edgar Allen Poe, oil on panel, 11×14, 2013.
For sale at :
I started with Lovecraft, and then was commissioned to paint Poe. I think the final in the creepy series should be Stephen King.
I loved when we got to read Poe or other creepy things growing up, it is probably the reason I am so strange as an adult.
Well, As you have all seen this being worked on, you can now see it finished! I have been mailing out all the rewards to my kickstarter backers, and now it is available for sale!
The Watcher II, oil on panel, 18×24, 2013.

I finished this piece in 2012, I just never got around to posting it. It was for the Lovecraft Show the Black Raven had last fall.
In the same style as my Lovecraft portrait from last year, I am working on an Edgar Allen Poe painting! This is presold to my good friend April, but I will have plenty of prints available at upcoming shows!
Here is the current work in progress:
I have been working overtime on finished the new version of the Watcher, and its finally finished. As a review, I have repainted this because it was originally the first painting I professionally ever finished. That was in 2002. So I wanted to paint the same subject and see how far I had come.
I also launched a Kickstarter for preordering prints. which can be accessed below.
But this post is bout Chattacon, which is happening next weekend! I will have some newer work, but the Watcher II will be shown for the first time ever at the show! Paul and I will also be in the dealers room, so come visit!
The other day I spent some time at the easel painting and I was thinking of new ways to reach new art fans. I have had so much success at Kickstarter, I decided I wanted to try my hand at an art focused project.
One of the big gambles making art is that you spend long hours planning and executing a painting, then print costs come into play, which can often be an expensive gamble for the artist. I have often finished a painting, thought it was the best thing I have done, run a bunch of prints, then never have them sell. So with the latest painting, I wanted to use crowd-funding to see if it is worthwhile to run a large print run.
So I launched this:
I am really excited about this painting, and hope that its worth running a large print run!
