So I'm working on a cover for an anthology book of zombie/fairy tales. Thought I'd just go with a Tinkerbellish fairy about to get grabbed and munched. Just sent it to the colorist today.

Pretty cool, and surely unique.

Very nice. Wouldn't mind seeing it when it's colorized.

Did you make/draw that yourself? If so, that's brilliant!

Why, thank you:) Yep, drew it with my own two hands and inked it with a pen.

Also did a prelim cover for a rat horror anthology. Tried for a dirtier, more gritty style.

You are a supremely talented artist!

Ever design tattoos? I could see that style translating well to skin art. I know that market's flooded with hacks, but your stuff is Gnarly, with a capital G!

I like what you got back from the colorist; coloration makes all the difference, doesn't it? I would call your rat one bloodier, instead of dirtier.

You are talented!

Never did consider tattoos. Don't care for the practice, to tell the truth. Thanks for the compliment, though!

Great stuff!! The color makes all the difference. I'd love to know the story behind the Tinkerbell work. Have you written a poem about it yet? Take care :)

Glad you like it! It's for a zombie/fairy tale anthology that's coming out this spring. It's gonna be the cover. I was trying to think of fairy tale things I could draw with zombies. It came down to Snow White and 7 zombie dwarfs, A zombie Little Red Riding Hood menacing a fearful Big Bad Wolf, or the Tinkerbell-ish fairy about to get grabbed and eaten like a chicken leg. I thought the foreshortening of the zombie hand was catchy and dramatic, so that's the one I went for. So, no poem, but who can say? It'd be a sad one for Tinkerbell, that's for sure.
