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…
