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…

The book is better than the movie

My most recent House of Horror commission.
Leaving this one open to guesses.
Hint: the movie was terrible. The book, far better.

Really excited about the next one; someone’s new home in East Sussex, 3 miles away from allegedly-stuffed-to-the-gills-with-ghosts Rye.
