Houses of Horror Book feedback

houses feedback

I had no intention of making a book until so many people said they wanted one

I looked into self-publishing. As it turns out, books are really expensive to make. Really, quite surprisingly expensive.

If you’re interested in buying a book, please fill out the form below;

I’m going to use this to gauge interest in the project so, if you want a book, please say so.

Otherwise I’ll assume there’s not very much interest and will put the idea to bed.

(I’m not doing a zine, I’m not doing prints, I’m not supplying high res files for people to print out, but thank you all for your suggestions)

Houses of Horror – Series 2

In 2014 I blundered through painting as many (and yet not daily) houses of horror as I could.

This year I’ve decided to nail 31 houses. I think I should’ve perhaps established some rules for myself, but I went and painted a bungalow with all the aesthetic vigour of a briefly worn athletic sock left next to the bath, so my reasoning varies greatly.

Still; although I used up most of the classic 70′ titles last year, I’ve found that there’s still plenty to get excited about.

I’m having a lot of fun. Even with the chronic eye strain headaches.

You can get the daily post on Instagram and I’ll try to update this post as regularly as I can in between sweating it over getting the next house finished…

Surprise from Goldmark

Thanks again to Callum, who printed these without my knowing until almost a year later! It was a lovely surprise.

the cat

While I was as Goldmark Atelier last year, I got to try my had at etching- which is old news if you’ve followed me for more than two seconds. I made a simple etching; sweating a bit at having to think of an image and bully it out of the black fast and efficiently enough so that I didn’t clench with shame and crack invisible nuts with my ass cheeks every time I saw it get printed.

red skeletons

I don’t know if I’d be as comfortable with the image if it didn’t symbolise pure relief on my part. I was though, so much so that when Jan put a very small plate in front of me and dared me to drypoint etch, I said “yeah, okay”.

I was warned that the headache inducing smallness of my regular detail would get lost as any stroke would more than likely feather out into thick, stark line. Not knowing what a middle ground is, I quickly executed a crudely drawn cat face and waited for its features to bleed, clown like, in the printing process.

Leaving, my thoughts were on my first ‘proper’ etching and so I forgot about it- until recently when I found a package from Goldmark. They’d made a small edition of 15 for me!

I was so pleased that I signed and numbered them, proper like.
