I’m doing it! A few people have asked, so I’ve decided to put the houses of horror up for sale on my bigcartel shop for Halloween weekend.
All are originals, gouache on illustration board, 10″ x 12″.
If you don’t want to wait, drop me a line at email@example.com
Midday Oct 31st – midnight Nov 2nd, GMT
Every time I do this sort of thing I know I’m taking another step away from the paintings I like and want to work on, but screw it; it’s horror month. I have until October 31st to revel in The Houses.
I’m pretty sure I’ll run out of steam, but semi-regular updates are happening on instagram.

To celebrate the release of The Golden Echo, Kimbra hosted a listening-party-come-exhibition with the Merry Karnowsky Gallery in LA last week.
The two week long show features the work of the 13 artists including Victor Castillo, Travis Louie, Greg Craola, Vonn Sumner, Mercedes Helnwein, Mel Kadel, Timothy Armstrong, devNgosha, Miguel Jiron, Svetlana Shigroff, Jono Brandel and myself.
More about the show and thought behind it on The Cave.
Many thanks to Norman Wonderly for making this happen

Or, I don’t know, like 21 Northern degrees.
It’s enough to make me skip second-lunch out of sheer discomfort at the thought of moderate activity (the fridge and I don’t share a room. I’d have to take STEPS to get there)
Anyway, it’s too hot for oil paint as I complained earlier on instagram.
Also: how vacuous a blog post is this? (guessing very-to-staggering)
Sally was found in 17 minutes, which thrills me to the extent that I wonder why I haven’t tried to get others involved in the hiding dolls for me before now.
The SDCC clue:
Found in what may prove to be record time by stuht
From what I’ve heard of Comic-Con, next to nobody will have time to pee let alone keep an eye out for a 6″ high doll, but supposing you just happen to see her, she’s yours.
The clue is likely to drop this Friday, so watch my instagram feed for immediate information, or this here blog for belated, slightly delayed information.
If I’m being realistic I’m half expecting her to get trampled or swept away. But that’s okay. It’s part of the fun (for me).
Brad of earlier skull related blog posts has kindly offered to do this for me (thanks, Brad!) I won’t actually be there myself, but if you are, I hope you have an excellent time.

A bit of what I have knocking around, in amongst my bell pepper seeds and empty Alpro yogurt pots.
The best part about working with this stuff is gouging out week old, hard, black gunk from every crevice in and around your fingernails.
A while ago someone got in touch about Tribe sketches – I thought they were all gone. An old sketchbook has turned up 5, rough and dirty on A4.
