Dark Night of The Scarecrow Revisited

In an attempt to capture the shocked look of horror on Bubba's face, here is another attempt at the Dark Night of the Scarecrow Bottle Cap Monster! Two shots of the same cap here. Acrylics inside a bottle cap lid.

New Card Design for Bottle Cap Monsters

Trying out a new format for my Bottle Cap Monsters. This one was designed for the Dark Night of the Scarecrow Bottle Cap Monster I recently painted. The Bottle Cap will be glued on the top of the coffin area, and I will sign the bottom.

Dark Night of the Scarecrow BCM #2

Just finished painting this one. Going to try a new format with this one, instead of gluing the cap to the standard cardboard coffin, I will be designing a 4x6 background to glue it on. I think it will make the Bottle Cap Monsters a little more practical, and at least easier to frame and hang on a wall. This one was a commissioned piece, and it sounds like it will be used as birthday present. I always try to make every bottle cap a little bit different, even if I have painted the same character before, so I moved the focus a little closer to Bubba's face this time. I am very happy with the way this one turned out, and looking forward to seeing it on the 4x6 photo once I get it finished.

Dusty Graves Sketch Card

I created this guy for a forthcoming t-shirt design I am working on, drawn with Pigma Micron felt tip markers, Prismacolor markers and Prismacolored pencils. This sketch card sold during the Halloween season at my art table at the Haunted Forest. I probably should have held on to this one, as I quite liked it (seeing as how I use the art as my icon here at Mordacious Art!) but ya can't keep 'em all and I am always happy to sell my artwork. If anyone is interested in buying an original sketch card, I only charge $10 for each one.

Dark Night of The Scarecrow Sketch

Did a little sketching tonight, in pencil no less! I love to draw with pencil, so who knows why I don't do it more often. Just one of those unexplainable things I suppose. This is a quick sketch from the incredible made for television horror flick "Dark Night of the Scarecrow", one of my favorite horror films. It was fun working on this, if time allows I will add more to this sketch later.

Frank Dietz - Amazing Horror Artist

I just added a link to Frank Dietz's blog here on Mordacious Art (under "sites of the art kings")- Frank is a super talented horror artist and he is a huge fan of horror as well. This is a picture of Frank and me at Monsterpalooza a few years ago. Check out his blog, you won't regret the inspiration!

Who Will Survive...and what will be left of them?

These are a couple of sketch cards I drew last year. I was selling them at my art booth at the Haunted Forest during the Halloween season. I still have both of these, if you are interested in purchasing one or both of them, they are a mere $10 each, and come in a protective sleeve. Yes, they are are original art, no prints here! Drawn with Pigma Micron markers and prismacolor pencils- and the occasional Prismacolor marker here and there.

Bottle Cap Monsters Collage

For some reason I never managed to post this collage here on the Mordacious blog. This is a compilation of every BCM I had painted (until recently, have a few more to add to this now!).
If you would like me to paint a Bottle Cap Monster for you, they are a mere $20. Contact me at and let me know which monster you would like to have painted!
