      This was a fun piece to work on for art director Aiko Masazumi at Westchester Magazine, mostly because I got to draw a dragon. The article was about memories of teenage crushes at Rye’s Playland, NY. 

      Thanks Aiko!

      Too scary for a kids room or just scary enough? Maybe I need to make some ‘friendlier’ masks.

      The Friday the 13th soundtrack by Waxwork Records is now on sale! The awesome cover art is by Jay Shaw & the inside art print (the image of poor Marcie with an axe in her head) is by me. So fun to paint something so gory for a change! Hopefully I’ll be doing more horror film work around the bend.

      They have limited numbers so grab yours soon! Can’t wait to get mine.
