Join Ussssssss....

I'm hoping most of you are familiar with a little podcast known as THE MOVIE CRYPT. It's an amazing show over at Geek Nation hosted by friends & filmmakers Adam Green (Hatchet, Holliston, Frozen, Digging Up the Marrow, etc) & Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Everly, Chillerama, Knights of Badaqssdom, etc). They have special guests who have all worked in film in one way or another & offers an educational, & often very emotional, look in the belly of the beast that is the World of Film. It's easily one of my favorite podcasts & has become a Monday ritual when new episodes are posted at
I've done some work w/ both Adam & Joe in the past, including THIS now sold out shirt design for their hilariously touching tv series, HOLLISTON (season three in the works!!):
A limited edition screenprint for their double feature of Digging Up the Marrow/Everly & LIVE podcast recording at the Alamo Drafthouse (available HERE for ONLY $10!):
& of course, just fan art because they rule!:
NOW, here's something NEW that you guys can wrap your torso in all the while supporting this fine podcast. Adam came to me with a rough design & I simply polished it off where it's now presented in all it's adorably, dark glory.... CULT OF ARWEN!
Arwen is the third (& most popular:) member of The Movie Crypt & her ridiculously cute bark which accompanies the claps that welcomes all guests to the show is music to my earholes. Now you can proudly parade around town with Arwen tattooed on your chest while advertising your devotion & membership to the cutest cult on this planet & beyond...the CULT OF ARWEN! 
Printed in blood red on a super soft, black tee (because seriously...what cult member would ever wear anything BUT black?!), the front has Arwen smack dab in the middle of an upside-down Christmas tree topper surrounded by the words: "CULT OF ARWEN / JOIN US. WE HAVE TREATS.":
 The back of the shirt features the same beautiful black the front offers with the red words: "LISTEN TO THE MOVIE CRYPT" printed on it as well:
These body huggers are available NOW for a special, limited preorder price of $20, so act fast in snatching one up! There are also a plethora of other goodies (including NEW, super RAD 'Hatchet' & 'Holliston' hoodies) at the Ariescope store, so take a moment to look around & throw a few things in your cart. After you check out with the high-fiving satisfaction of supporting Ariescope Pictures, make sure you're all caught up with The Movie Crypt & all the awesome, FREE short films & series that they also offer for your entertainment.
Thank you, friends for taking the time to read this & for your continued I'm gonna go sacrifice a milk bone to my doggie.

4.26 - ALIEN DAY!....AND KRAMPUS!!!!

Bust out the balloons & noisemakers, my fellow scifi/horor freaks, for today is a holiday!
That's right, April 26th, or 4.26 has been labeled "ALIEN DAY" by us fans & it's global spread is being felt RIGHT NOW as you read this boring post. Let me give you on a very quick, nerdy tutorial on what exactly "4.26" is & why we're even celebrating it:

"LV-426 is one of three known moons orbiting Calpamos in the Zeta Reticuli system, 39 light years away from Earth. It was first detected by Weyland Corp astronomers on May 14, 2039. The moon's common name of "Acheron" was given by it's early human colonists (USCSS Nostromo) who settled there in 2122. LV-426 has no indigenous life forms & it is not the Xenomorph homeworld; it was simply a planet which an Engineer ship, containing Xenomorph eggs & possibly live subjects as well, crash-landed. According to Weyland-Yutain surveys, LV-426 was simply a dead rock..."

If any of this immediately makes sense to you, then we can be geeky super friends! If this is all foreign, mumbo jumbo to you, it's alright, we can still be long as you educate yourself on this material right NOW! All of that jargon above is information from a brilliant franchise that has stood the test of time & continues to be simply AWESOME! In 1979, the first film in the series landed on Earth & by now I hope you're aware that I'm talking about Ridley Scott's masterpiece, ALIEN. Followed up by a few sequels (including James Cameron's flawless film, ALIENS) & even a prequel, the utter coolness of these movies is enough to have one day of the year completely devoted to them & have everyone on this blue marble bow down to it's endless entertainment.
All over this planet people are celebrating this day in one way or another: sitting at home, curled up on the couch with warm popcorn watching one or two or ALL of the ALIEN franchise movies, retelling their favorite stories about when THEY were abducted, attending special screenings at rad cinemas(which I'm doing TONIGHT at Alamo Drafthouse - a double feature of Alien & Aliens!), sweet merchandise is being released from companies & artists from all over, ...wait, let's stop there! Yep, in celebration of this day, I'm releasing a new art print featuring the true star of these films. The Aliens(or Xenomorphs as some call them) were, of course, created & designed by dark master, H.R. Giger whose timeless art continues to, & will forever, inspire. Here's my take on this sexy creature:
Available in TWO different sizes, you can choose to cover 8x10 or 11x14 inches of your wall with this beautiful specimen. Simply head to my online store to pick one up...he really wants to (face)hug & high five you for having it's special day on your calendar!

But wait!...something super cool is simultaneously happening this day that needs to be addressed as well! Another one of my favorite Holiday Horror films is being released TODAY on dvd/bluray. & that film is Mike Dougherty's(who also wrote/directed my absolute FAVORITE film, 'Trick 'r Treat') chilling, KRAMPUS! To celebrate this awesome event, I created a NEW Monster MugShot dipicting the true star of this film, KRAMPUS himself!
This is the FOURTEENTH character added to my ongoing series of Monster MugShots & I'm caroling with excitement to feature him alongside all the other horror icons I've scribbled out for this endless collection. He's just waiting for you to rescue him in my online store, so GO BREAK HIM OUT! Not only is he available in the obvious, regular 'Monster MugShot' mini print size of 4x5.25, but he & now ALL of the current MugShots are available in a new, larger 8x10 size! Start collecting them all, my friends!

So there you have it, HAPPY 4.26 (& krampus day!)!! In closing, I'd also like to share my 11x17 "Three Ugly Motherf@*#ers" black & white print which is on a special, SALE price of only $10 for a limited time since it also features today's celebratory figures:
I also wanted to give you guys a heads up that I'll, of course, be at my FAVORITE convention that's coming up in less than two months, COMICPALOOZA, in Houston! Why is this relevant? Because the guests of honor at this show is the complete cast from ALIENS & it's the films 30 year anniversary! Some of my Alien art will be on VIP badges, special VIP prints & even on t-shirts, so I hope you can make it to this amazing show. I'll also have new, ALIEN art for this show, so please stick around for more info coming soon....
Please follow me on Instagram, Twitter &/or Facebook for reveals & fun art stuff!
Thanks again for everyone's continued support.

If you all have watched Netflix's first season of 'DAREDEVIL', I shouldn't have to tell you how amazing it is. They seriously got it right & know what they're doing. If you haven't watched the first season of 'DAREDEVIL', I advise you to stop reading this & immediately devote the next few days glued to your TV or computer & surrender to Hell's Kitchen. 
Anyhoo, you can tell I'm a fan. I grew up with an older brother obsessed with Daredevil & being the youngest who looked up to him, I was surrounded by his comics & dove head first into them as well. I've read a lot of Daredevil & have always appreciated the character...even wincing my way through Ben Affleck's version. Last year I painted up a bust of the red devil as a birthday gift to my oldest bro & now I'm making it available to all of YOU! Yep, in celebration of 'DAREDEVIL's second season which was released TODAY on Netflix, I've added this 11x14, full color, art print to my online store. 
For this weekend, it'll ONLY be $10! After that, it'll go to it's regular price of $15, so act fast if you're considering some new art to hang.  Blindly wander to my online shop & check it out!
Thanks for your continued support, ya devils...i truly appreciate it. Now kick back & enjoy the new season...I know I will!

I am extremely proud & honored to be a part of the upcoming 30 Screaming Years Touring Art Show which is coming right here to Austin, TX this month.
I remember first seeing Jim Phillip's iconic, "Screaming Hand" image when I was very young & it forever being tattooed to my brain.  So to finally have an opportunity to reinterpret The Hand & present it in an official manner makes me as excited as a kid on a skateboard! Here's my version/vision:

"Full Scream Ahead"
12" x 12" acrylic/ink on wood panel
I hope you join the party & attend this special event presented by Spratx & Fast Forward Skate Shop on Feb. 19-20 from 6-10pm. There will be limited merchandise & pieces from the show's amazing sponsors: Santa Cruz Skateboards, Vans, Kidrobot, Juxtapoz Magazine, NHS Skate Museum & Skullcandy. All event details & info can be found HERE.
I really look forward to high fiving YOUR Screaming Hand!

A New Year

You guys, it's 2016. It's scaring me how fast the numbers on the end of the current year changes, but it's an inevitable thing. Despite the terribly devastating news of that disgusting killer, cancer, physically taking some ridiculously inspirational people out of our lives already,  let's focus on making 2016 our best year yet. Take that idea you've had tucked away in your head that you've been putting off for so long & make it happen. Push aside those negative distractions in your life & stare down those goals & dreams you wish to accomplish. I'm not gonna get all Shia LaBeouf on you, but I whole heartedly agree with him screaming in our faces:

Sometimes we do need a quick (& often silly) reminder & if it snaps even one person out of a funk it's totally worth it. Time IS short...

With that, I wanted to invite you ALL to the first art show I'm a part of in 2016. My friends & local badasses, Spratx, have been working incredibly hard the past few months remodeling & creating a new retail AND gallery space in East Austin & now it's time to open the doors to the public! They're throwing a well deserved party for their grand opening THIS Saturday, January 16th, 6-10pm & I couldn't be more pleased & lucky to be a part of it. Spratx expertly crafted 12 wood cut out crowns (their logo) & handed them to different artists to do with them what they wanted..

...I somehow found one in my hands & created this "Monster King":
All twelve pieces will be revealed at the opening & a silent auction will be held for them. Along with that, I'll also have a few other originals & some different art prints available alongside some super talented artists, so I hope to see your smiling faces there so i can high five it. Yes...I'll HIGH FIVE YOUR FACE so you can REALLY feel my love & appreciation! All of the info for the grand opening can be found HERE. I really hope you can make it.

Again, friends, let's not lose focus in 2016 & let's put all our energy into the things & people that really matter to us.

Holiday Horror is HERE!

It's that time of year to start watching those Holiday classics. I've already cried like a baby to one of my favorites, The Family Stone, & usually save A Christmas Story & National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation for the big day. Of course Black Christmas & Silent Night, Deadly Night need a viewing this time of year to satisfy the horror craving but we can't forget Love Actually, Frosty the Snowman & One Magic Christmas with Harry Dean Stanton as the coolest angel in existence. The list goes on & on & we all have our very own, special viewing traditions that we love to experience... Well, there's a new, AMAZING film that I saw this weekend that will definitely be a new, holiday tradition. Yessir, I plan on watching this instant classic this time each year, every year, for the rest of my life. Written & directed by the same mastermind who brought us my favorite character of all time, Sam, & easily one of my favorite films of all time, Trick 'r Treat, Mike Dougherty has done it again. Adding Christmas to his list of Holiday Horror, Dougherty brought us KRAMPUS this past weekend & it was a wonderful, whimsical world of frostbitten darkness! This movie is SO FUN & needs to be seen on the big screen. When I woke up like an excited, little kid on Christmas morning just a couple days ago on it's release date of Friday, December 4th, an image popped in my head that I HAD to get out. I pulled out my watercolors & smeared them around until THIS appeared:
I simply HAD to put these two icons together who are forever running wild in Dougherty's magically universe & inside our heads. The response to this image has been overwhelming & fans of these two movies have shown a ridiculous amount of support. With the special requests & shares that you have all provided, I'm now releasing this as a print. You can grab "HOLIDAY HORRORS MEET" as a 10"x 8" or a slightly larger 14"x 11" print at my store NOW. Again, I am truly blown away by everyone's words the past few days & you all continue to remind me why I do this "art" thing for a living (& why the horror genre has the absolute BEST fans out there!).

So, go get yourself a print for Christmas or gift one or two or three to those special friends & family members & most importantly, GO SEE KRAMPUS IMMEDIATELY! Take everyone you know & see it again & again! The opening weekend numbers were AMAZING & it debuted MUCH higher than expected which is the best news EVER for the genre! With Dougherty working on TRICK 'R TREAT 2 right now, this will guarantee him the freedom & budget to make it the best film he can for US!

I can't believe that we're only TWO WEEKS AWAY from me & my twin brother's art show, THERE ARE TWO OF ME. What I can believe is the human body can survive on minimal sleep for a long period of time. The sleepless nights have been ongoing as I continue to get ready for this exhibit & I'm super excited to show you all my new work. If you're interested in little hints, sneak peeks & releases from THERE ARE TWO OF ME, head to the Harlingen Arts & Heritage events page on Facebook where Lance & I are slowly adding new information & art leading up to the show. You can, of course, follow me on Instagram where I've already been sharing some process shots of my new pieces.
More info coming soooooooooon. Looking forward to seeing all your faces...
Follow one man's journey as he chronicles his internal struggle with the belief that he & everyone else has a second identity. He becomes consumed with this thought & loses his real self within his other self, physically seeing his identical twin living out his own life. He communicates this belief in journals & paintings which will be on display.
...we are on display.

So, this past weekend I took a few hours to sketch out some of my favorite superheroes & had a SUPER fun time doing it! Actually, I had SO much fun that I decided to start a new series featuring these watercolor sketches...
Like my "Pocket Monsters", these are 5"x 7" watercolor/ink portraits of the heroes (& super villains:) we've all come to love, so please welcome: "POCKET PROTECTORS!"

To kick it off I'm taking a few commissions for ONLY $35 EACH for a limited time! Head to my online store & pick up one or two or three or MORE! You can choose ANY ONE in the "superhero" world for me to paint.
These will all be in this "portrait" style you see below, so start collecting & building your very own "POCKET PROTECTORS!"...that's SUPER!

RIP Wes Craven

I'm deeply saddened by this...

Thank you, Wes Craven ...thank you for SO much.

"Hi, I'm Chucky...wanna play?"
We ALL know what that's from. & most movie fans know the man behind those words & that film. Tom Holland is a MASTER of horror & he not only brought us the classic, 'Child's Play', but one of my all time favorites, 'FRIGHT NIGHT', as well as 'Thinner', 'Psycho II', 'Class of 1984'...the list goes on & on. Growing up on these films has been a treat, but to now say I'm working alongside Tom is a SUPER TREAT!

That's right, I'm extremely excited to announce that I have joined Tom Holland's Terror Time family! Terror Time will be releasing my art as high-quality, affordable prints as well as t-shirts to make your torso the sexiest ever!

That Friday will be the opening of my twin brother & I's art show:

We'll be returning to our hometown of Harlingen, TX & showing at the same, wonderful location I had my first, solo art show almost two years ago, the Harlingen Arts & Heritage Museum.

You can even enjoy South Padre Island & Mexico (the safe spots;) afterwards which I plan on doing!

Summer brings some HOT, new items!

Happy SUMMERTIME, friends!
COMICPALOOZA was seriously a good time & my brother & I somehow survived the "Great Memorial Day Flood of Houston"(thanks to the perfect driving & care of Sarah B!) only to return to Austin which was also completely under water. Luckily, we are safe & sound & truly hope that everyone affected by all this ridiculous, Texas rain are staying dry & unharmed as well.  The summer sun has finally come out to dry things up & with this sweat-filled weather that's making it's way to most of us, I thought it's a good time to add some HOT, new items to my online store to hopefully make you & your walls COOLER, yo! Let's share some of the goodies, shall we?! 
As I mentioned above, COMICPALOOZA was super great! You may remember from my previous post, I created a new "Monster MugShot" from one of the truly scariest movies of all time since the actress who portrayed this character was a guest at the con. Well, this monster is now available in my store & I hope all you amazing people who are collecting the whole MugShot series will welcome her...REGAN MacNEIL!:
So, Linda Blair herself LOVED this "Regan" art! Enough that she sent her assistant to my table to tell me she wanted to meet me...way too cool! She refused to spit pea soup on me though :(, BUT she DOES now have this "photo" available at her table when she appears at conventions now! HONORED!

Next up are three prints to kick off a new series called "COMIC CREEPS". Like my "Monster MugShots", this will be an ongoing series which I will slowly add to throughout my strange life.  All 11"x 17" prints waiting to creep on your walls..."Deadcool", "The Stranger" & "Wolvie Walker"...:
Ryan Reynolds, Benedict Cumberbatch & Hugh Jackman have never looked so good!

I've also added some newer prints of different sizes of some older work I've done that have never been prints before today!...FUN!! Here's what these look like:

And getting to even more monsters, I know a lot of you, like me, are HUGE fans of Clive Barker & his monster-filled, 1990 classic, NIGHTBREED, so of course I didn't forget about YOU! I recently went to the gates of Midian where two of my favorite occupants were hanging out. Well, I quickly sketched them out using ONLY the light of the moon & THIS is what came from it:
BUT, there's something special about these "prints". Not only are they LIMITED TO ONLY 10, but ALL ten of them are hand embellished. That's right, my right hand has colored the BIG moon looming over the heads of Kinksi & Peloquin:
it also scratched my name in the lower left side of the print AND it hand numbered & drew/colored another TINY moon in the bottom right corner....HANDTASTIC!:
All prints will have slight differences since they're colored individually making them all unique & one of a kind. These are SUPER RARE & once they're gone, they're gone for good, kiddos! Bring the 'Moon of Midian' home to you & know only NINE other people will be staring at that same romantic!

Hey, PINHEAD! No...not the freak from Hellraiser (although he IS included in this batch), but the freaks that like to pin buttons to their jacket/hat/shirt/backpack/face/european-carry-all/skin/purse/head/WHATEVER!...I've added some limited, 1.25" buttons that will look lovely wherever you decide to pin them. All buttons come on a "PINHEAD!" backer card signed by my shaky hand. You can collect all the buttons, keep them on the backer card & START A PINHEAD ARMY!...that's idiotic FUN!! With SIX designs to choose from, you're guaranteed to like something!:

Finally, I've added my 'Bad Connection' 4" stickers that you can add to spruce up any bland surface:

as well as stocked a few 'SOLD OUT' prints like my popular "T'rT: SAM!" print:
Hopefully there's something there that will make you smile, so please head to my store & check it out, friends!
I hope you all have an amazing summer! Talk sooooooooon.....
