What lurks in the corners of your closet in the waning hours of nightfall?
A Halloween mask, a glowing of stick-on eyes, or perhaps a faux fur jacket?
Or has some parallel world opened form the nether regions of unspoken things that creep, longing for an expression of a deep seated fear that cannot be uttered? Watch your closet for fiendish things therein lie.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Very well put together mate…looks mid-transformation to me and reminds me of the scene in American Werewolf in London.

  • Ahhh, my man is back from holiday, so sooooooooooooon as Wolfie would say. AAWINL is one of my all time faves actually. Here I was going for a transformation look, with a twist of less all around hair. Thanks for the kind words!

    What a charming and sweet looking man, Randy! Wonderful piece….love that gorgeous smile! And love your imagination!!

  • What can I say, it takes at least one day per month to get that look Karen, so be careful criticizing it. Say what was your address, I might need it next full moon….

    Cool mate…one of my all time faves too…Rick Bakers work is always good value and I love the black humour in it. I remember seeing it at a mates house after his parents asked if mine allowed me to watch “these type” of films. Of course was the reply. I was 12 :-). Needless to say that my feet never moved so quickly carrying me home from his house..it was like a cartoon lol…you could almost see a vapour trail!
