Been a long time since I updated my journal here- kinda been neglecting things at DA, need to get more involved here again! I have been staying VERY busy as the lead concept artist/makeup artist for a brand new, forthcoming theme park/haunted attraction here in Utah. It is definitely going to raise the bar for haunted attractions! Can't wait to start sharing some of the work I have been doing. Once I am given the greenlight I will start posting a few things! I have also been busy preparing new art for my favorite horror convention MONSTERPALOOZA. I will be setting up a table once again, this time with my friend Jordan Colton, an upcoming new artist that creates some pretty awesome monsters with stained glass! Thanks to everyone that stops by to look at my work, and as always... STAY SCARY!!

Way overdue for an updated Journal entry! I am preparing to make a return to Monsterpalooza in Burbank, California on April 13th-15th. Been trying to get lots of new merch ready for the show, and hopefully this month I can crank out a bunch of new Bottle Cap Monster goodness!

I am also busy with several other side projects, including a new mural job for a restaurant, some concept art and a few other things. Also staying insanely busy with the full time job, so life is very busy for me lately.

Been able to see a few good metal concerts in the last couple of months, saw TESTAMENT a while back and just saw ICED EARTH, SYMPHONY X and WARBRINGER. Also hoping to see 3 INCHES OF BLOOD soon, and OVERKILL. Nothing like a good dose of live metal to help keep the creativity levels high!

That's about it for me these days. Thanks again to everyone that takes time to stop in and visit my monster art!

Stay scary!

Hey there my fellow deviants...

Hope life has been treating you well! I made the voyage to the almighty MONSTERPALOOZA art of monsters show in Burbank, California over the weekend of April 8th and came away more inspired than ever! I am hoping to return in 2012 with a table to sell more art down there- the show has really grown since I sold my work there back in 2009, and I can't say enough good about what a top notch convention it is.

I have started cranking out more Bottle Cap Monsters due to a sudden onslaught of requests for those mini monstrosities. I did a Bill Hinzman zombie recently, and just last night I created my 4th Frank the Bunny from Donnie Darko (both of them are in my gallery here). Up next is Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas, and then I plan on tackling a bunch of other monsters I have been wanting to see in bottle cap size. I figured it was also time to launch a website dedicated to these crazy bottle caps, so www.bottlecapmonsters is now up and running, although I must warn you I have been so busy with other projects that there isn't much to see on there at the moment- something I plan to remedy very shortly, so please check back often to see what new.

I am also getting ready (WAY in advance this year!) to make a return to The Haunted Forest as the makeup director. I have been working closely with the owner and another good friend of mine to help make the Forest a top notch haunted attraction, helping with concept art and coming up with ideas for new areas and sets. If all goes as planned, the Haunted Forest is gonna be the definitive haunt to visit this Halloween season.

Otherwise, it's life in the routine lane for me- I have been enjoying my day job, and spending what few extra minutes I have at home with my sweet wife and my 3 amazing kids. Somewhere in between I also manage to sneak in a few minutes to catch up on vintage horror movies on Netflix- recently watched "Spider Baby" with Lon Chaney Jr and Sid Haig, and of course several ultra cool Vincent Price films including "Pit and the Pendulum", "Witchfinder General" and "Masque of the Red Death". Can never get enough of the Vincent Price flicks!!

Stay scary, and definitely let me know if you would like to commission a Bottle Cap Monster- they are still only $20 + Shipping.

I have had a lot of people ask me how I go about creating my Bottle Cap Monsters. I figured since I was going to be painting my 50th bottle cap monster (THE SHOCK MONSTER!), I would create a step by step tutorial while I did it.

I am also working on a new website called TOON ACADEMY, which is basically another outlet for me to try and inspire others to be inspired by art, cartooning, and anything creative. So that's where you will find my Bottle Cap Monster tutorial. You can also check out my posts on Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, and a review of a biography on Peanuts creator Charles M Schulz.

Please leave me a comment or two while you are there so I will know you visited. Hope you find it inspiring!

Check it out at www.toonacademy.com

Stay scary!!

Uggh, I just got the news that the legendary Frank Frazetta passed away this afternoon. My head is still spinning after hearing this.

Frank has long been one of my heroes and a definite inspiration- I spent many hours in the back of my high school art class trying (and not succeeding) to imitate his incredible style.

I was lucky enough to see one of his original paintings at Comic Con a few years ago, and I am sure his work will continue to inspire many generations of artists. The artistic world will never be the same.

RIP Frank.

Last week was my first week of full time employment again! I was really fortunate and found a job as a graphic designer for one of the big newspapers in Salt Lake City. It does require a longer commute, and I am becoming familiar with public transportation once again, but I am very relieved to be working again, and I definitely love being able to be creative full time.

Another disadvantage to the commute is that it takes away an extra 2 hours of my day just in travel time, so my evenings feel even shorter- add to that he fact that I have to get up early to get to work on time, I also have to crash out much earlier than I am used to- so my art time is very limited. I was hoping I could spend some time on the train doing sketches, but with so many stops and starts it is way too jerky to do any effective sketching. Guess I am just gonna have to buckle down and force myself to use my short evenings wisely!

I spoke with the owner of the Haunted Forest this week, sounds like we are going to get together this coming week to discuss ideas for the haunt for the new year. I am always excited to start thinking about the scare season!!

Now that I am finally back to a somewhat normal situation in my life with work and all, I am really hoping to get out of my "non-artwork" rut and start cranking out some new acrylic paintings. Thanks again to everyone that continues to stop by and visit my page here on DA, and if anyone if interested in a commission, just send me a note and I will see what I can do!

Stay scary!

After a short 2 month return to working full time, I am back to being unemployed once again. I was really hopeful that things would work out this time, but a bunch of new rules and regulations that were handed down on New Year's eve to the online marketing industry drove a stake through the heart of many businesses, and the one I was working for was no exception.

I am optimistic that things are looking a little better, and I am hoping I can find a new job very soon. I am doubtful that I will find one that will pay me as well as the last job, but as long as I can find work again, things will work out.

While I was working, I built a couple of new websites with my good friend Jordan Colton. Jordan is another fellow horror movie enthusiast, so we decided we wanted to do a site where we could write about the horror movies we have been watching. We're both partial to the classic horror genre, so you'll find a lot of our reviews come from the old school, but every now and then we'll review some modern horror as well. Check out Chamber of Horror Films at www.chamberofhorrorfilms.com

I am hoping that I will get a few minutes to do some more horror art now that I am unemployed again. I was working overtime to try and make things happen at the old job, so I had very little spare time, but I am definitely feeling the urge to do some more monster art very soon!

If anyone is interested in hiring me to do a comission, now is the perfect time. I can do a bottle cap monster for a mere $20, so let me know if you have a favorite monster you would like immortalized in a bottle cap.

In the meantime, stay scary!

All the best!

I have been back to work for a about a week and a half now- it has been great to have something to keep me busy all day again for sure!

I have also been enjoying the Bottle Cap Monster paintings again, and I would like to paint a bunch more of them soon. I still have a few famous monsters on a list that I would like to paint, probably the most obvious one is Michael Myers- need to find a good reference photo of ol' Mike, preferrably the original Mike, not the Rob Zombie version.

I know there are loads of other great characters that I need to immortalize in a bottle cap, so if there is a monster or character that you think I should paint, feel free to send me your suggestions. I have already done a few characters twice, but I try to keep them all different even if I do use the same character twice. So far I have painted 2 Freddys, 2 Frank the Bunnys, and 2 Creature From the Black Lagoons. Anyway, send me your suggestions. Also let me know if you are interested in buying one of these mini monstrosities- they are a mere $20, and I will put 'em on a necklace for you if you prefer, or I can put them on the signed and dated cardboard coffin backer if that works better for you, and I will even pay to ship them out to your home crypt.

Hope you are all having a great Christmas season, I was at Wal-Mart the other day (which I hate, but sometimes it's a necessary evil) and found a great deal on the 2 disc collector's edition of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre- awesome tin packaging, with cool art on the cover by the legendary Wes Benscoter- the bonus disc is loaded with very cool documentaries and such, and the whole thing was a mere $5. Nothing better than cheap horror films! So run out and snag a copy if you can find it, it would make a great stocking stuffer for that horror fan in your family...They also had a double feature DVD of Tales From The Crypt (with Peter Cushing) and The Vault of Horror for the same low price of only 5 bones...

Out of the blue, I got a call from my boss at my old (and dream) job, asking if I was employed yet, and if I wasn't if I was interested in coming back to work for him. I guess they made the necessary adjustments and got everything back on track, so I am back to cranking out webpages like a madman again. I don't know if this will be long term, as this is a startup company and they already crashed once, but it sure does feel good to be working again!

Anyway, that's the latest in my crazy work search adventure. I am hoping it will remain steady and I can get back to normal and start cranking out some creepy artwork on the side again. I am hoping to make a return to Monsterpalooza in April, though I may have missed out on getting a table again this year, I will at the very least be attending to check out all the monstery goodness to be found there.

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the start of December. Look for a couple new Bottle Cap Monsters to be showing up in my gallery very soon, and let me know if you would to hire me to paint one for you!

I was gettin' tired of looking at that old journal entry on my main page, so I figured it was time to give you an update on what's been going on in my life!

After 3 months, I am still unemployed. Been managing to scrape by and somehow make the house payments and the bill payments, and I have been applying for jobs at every possible opportunity, with not even a sign of a response. Been pretty depressing, but finally last week I had 2 places contact me for interviews, so with any luck something might come out of those. It is nice to know that there are actually signs of life in the job field for a lowly graphic designer like myself!

I have had a lot of spare time to be doing tasty artwork, but I have not really taken advantage of that like I should. The month of October kept me pretty busy doing makeup for the Haunted Forest, as well as peddlin' my artwork in front of the haunt on the weekends. I was pleasantly surprised at how much merch I was able to sell. Sold a LOT of Freddy Krueger prints, as well as trading cards and buttons. Seems that Mr. K is pretty popular here in my neck 'o the woods. I am sure it has a lot to do with the forthcoming remake of Nightmare on Elm Street. I also sold my Freddy K bottle cap monster, along with a commission of Billy the Puppet from Saw.

I also took a week off to be with my family at our timeshare in Park City, Utah. Always great to spend time with them and just forget about life for a while. Now that the holiday season is in full swing, I am still very focused on finding a full time job. I did get commissioned to paint up a couple of new bottle cap monster necklaces for someone here on DA, so I will be starting those soon- one of Freddy (told ya he is popular!) and one of Frank the Bunny. If anyone else would like a bottle cap monster to give as a gift for Christmas, contact me and let me know which monster you would like to see on your bottle cap.

So that's about it for me right now- been trying to learn a few new computer skills to help boost my graphic design skill set, and been watching the occasional horror movie on DVD. Watched Drag Me To Hell again last night, I really dig on that film for some reason. Also watched Peter Jackson's classic "Dead Alive" the other day- gotta love those over the top zombie flicks!

Stay scary and have a great holiday season... There will be new monsters showing up here soon, so see ya then!

It has been quite a while since I posted or added anything here on DA- Like so many other people these days, I am bummed to announce that my so called "dream job" has crashed and burned, so I am in the unfamiliar position of being unemployed at the moment. It has only been a week and it is driving me up the wall not getting up to go to work every day. I thought I would at least take advantage of the time and do some more painting, but I think the stress of losing my job has put a damper on my creativity. I am trying to stay positive and upbeat and I do have a couple good leads on some new jobs, so with any luck I won't be unemployed for long.

I have been doing some graphic design work for the Haunted Forest, the haunt that I do makeup work for- you can see their web page at www.hauntedutah.com. I am glad that I will be starting the Halloween season for them at the end of September, that always fires up my creativity!

I have also been commissioned to airbrush a denim jacket, doing a Tattoo style dragon- something new for me, and I do love a good challenge, so it should be fun to do.

Outside of the art realm, I have found a few good bits of music- the new Cheap Trick CD called "The Latest" is awesome, I have been playing that one a lot. I was also excited to hear the new KISS tune "Modern Day Delilah" on their webpage- the new CD "Sonic Boom" comes out early October as a Walmart exclusive- which is nice because it will include their re-recording of their greatest hits and a live DVD, all for only $12, but it pisses me off when bands do deals with corporate monsters like Walmart because it really hurts the indie record stores, which are almost extinct anyway. There is nothing as cool as going to a great indie music store- going to Walmart to buy music is lame at best.

Movie wise, I have been disappointed. Halloween 2 was utter and total crap. Dull, unoriginal and a really really stupid story line. Kind of a "Brady Bunch from Hell" concept with a lot of stupid dream sequences involving a white horse and Sheri Moon Zombie. Hearing that Rob is now working on a re-make of "The Blob" didn't excite me at all- since he managed to kill rather than re-invent the Halloween franchise, I really hate seeing him do the same thing to a classic like The Blob. C'mon Rob, you used to be so inovative and creative- why not come up with something new and fresh rather than killing off the classics with your lousy remakes??

I also watched the abysmal "2001 Maniacs" with Robert Englund. It had been many years since I watched "2000 Maniacs" so I had totally forgotten the story line, but wow- 2001 maniacs was SO stupid! I enjoy a little campiness in a horror movie, ala "Drag Me To Hell", but this movie was a mismash of really bad cliches and really lame excuses for killing off a bunch of horny college kids. I should have turned that movie off after the first 10 minutes, but for some reason I forced myself to watch the entire thing. Uggh.

I am not sure what to think about the trailer for "The Wolfman" movie from Benicio Del Toro... Once again, treading on the sacred ground of the Universal classics always makes me worry. Who knows, maybe it will be good??

Alright, enough ranting. Hopefully I will be back on track soon and can start posting more artwork here soon...

Stay Scary!

Hey there fellow monster lovers!

The other day I decided to try something new, so I checked out Squidoo. I quickly realized that it would be an awesome way to help fly the flag of horror art, so I created a lens dedicated to monster and horror art.

If you have a few extra minutes, check it out here: www.squidoo.com/drawingblood

I am trying to add links to many of my fellow horror artists' websites or blogs or myspace pages. So don't be surprised if you find yourself listed there. Anything I can do to point the public eye to some good quality horror art is a good thing!

I will try to keep this lens updated as much as possible, so if you have some suggestions on what I can do to improve it, or if there is a horror artist I need to add to my list, let me know. I am just getting started, so there is plenty of room for improvement.

If you are a member of squidoo, take a minute to rate my lens. And be sure to sign the guestbook!

Stay Scary!!

I am open for commissions if anyone is interested.

Bottle Cap Monsters - if you have a favorite horror movie character that you would like me to paint in a bottle cap for you- let me know. They are a mere $20 each and make for a very unique collectible. Check out my gallery to see examples of the other BCM's I have painted. Some of the older ones are still available. Let me know if you see one you like and I will let you know if it is still available or not.

I also do larger scale acrylic paintings, airbrush painting, and coming soon... more acid etched glass work. Got some cool ideas I would like to try in that arena!

While you are waiting for new artwork from me to appear here, I will post some more photos from the amazing MONSTERPALOOZA show I attended at the end of May.

Stay scary!

Wanted to take a minute to apologize to everyone for the delay in getting any new artwork posted here.

Life can be really interesting at times. The last month has been filled with new adventures and a lot of new challenges. I started working at a great new job, which has kept me ultra busy, working hard and learning loads of new things. I have loved every minute of it, and I have been thrilled to be able to learn so many new things along the way!

I also had such a great time going to Monsterpalooza at the end of May. It was seriously like living a dream, and I loved being able to spend quality time with my son Christian and my 2 good friends Travis and Emil. Selling artwork and being successful at the show was another huge bonus, and I can't wait to do it again next year!

Riding a euphoric high like that from my new job and Monsterpalooza, I figured there had to be a downer in the mix, and unfortunately I was correct. My grandmother Mary Kendall has been quite sick for quite a long time now. She was living in one of those "assisted living" centers not too far away from where I live. Making a long story short, she passed away early this morning. Fortunately, I was able to be there and hold her hand when she passed. She was my last living grandparent, and we had a very close relationship. I am glad that she is not suffering anymore, but at the same time I miss her terribly.

With that being said, I apologize again for not being able to get any artwork finished. Once the funeral services are over, I will get my Bottle Cap Monster commissions painted up, and then move on to some larger airbrush paintings as well.

Hope everyone is doing well, and as always

Stay Scary!

Now that I have had a few days to let the dust settle from the Monsterpalooza show, it's time to get started on the next phase of horror art. So what am I gonna be working on? I am thinking it's time to make a return to another of my artistic passions, the airbrush. I am thinking I will kick things off by doing a nice big airbrush painting of my favorite Universal Monster, none other than Creature from the Black Lagoon! From there, I will just see how I am feeling and pick the next monster that sounds like fun to paint.

I am also open to doing commissions, so if anyone has something they would like painted, be it a Bottle Cap Monster or a larger painting, contact me and we can work out the pricing. Before I get started on my Creature airbrush, I have 2 commissioned bottle cap monsters to finish, one for my good friend Dr.Twistid :icondr-twistid:, gonna paint up a werewolf from An American Werewolf in London for him, and another one of Frank the bunny from Donnie Darko for Dead14u2 :icondead14u2:. Both will be fun to paint I am sure!

I also have a bunch of merchandise stocked up after the Monsterpalooza show- I've got a bunch of glossy 8x10 photo prints of my artwork, those are a mere $10 each (visit my blog mordaciousart.blogspot.com and scroll to the bottom for my store). I also have t-shirts, bandanas, buttons and trading cards available. I have been too lazy to get all of those items added to my store, but if anyone is interested, contact me and I will get the info and all to you right away.

Makeup wise, I am way overdue to paint another skull makeup, using the awesome new LUX airbrush makeup line from Mehron. I will be scheduling that session very soon as well.

Anybody gone to see Drag Me to Hell yet? I thought it was awesome, not as good as the Evil Dead stuff from Sam Raimi, but it was great to see him do another horror movie, and it was great to see a horror movie that was focused on the monsters and the suspense more than on the excessive violence and nudity that seems so prevalent in modern horror films.

I also finally snagged a copy of The Mist on DVD, another great horror flick.

Thanks again to everyone that has been stopping by to check out my artwork!!

After a long 11 hour road trip yesterday, I am finally back home from Monsterpalooza! What a great show, and an even greater experience! I got to meet so many amazing people during the 3 days I was there, and it was beyond cool to meet and talk to so many monster fans!

Big time thanks to a couple of folks that supported me and bought my artwork, a really great guy by the name of Frank actually bought my original airbrush painting of Boris Karloff as Frankenstein, and another guy named Gary bought 3 of my Bottle Cap Monsters and commissioned me on the spot to do a Creature from the Black Lagoon Bottle Cap Monster for him also. I also sold a bunch of the other Bottle Cap Monsters and other assorted merchandise. It worked out to be a very successful show for me, so thanks to everyone that was kind enough to stop by to talk at my table, or to purchase some of my art!

Between my friend and me, we took almost 500 photos at the show! I am gonna be busy trying to get them all organized and cleaned up.

My head is still spinning after the whole experience, and I have lots of great stories to tell, but for now I gotta get back to work. Look for photos soon!

Once again I find myself needing some advice from my fellow art enthusiasts. As you are all aware from all of my recent deviations, I am preparing to go to Monsterpalooza in Burbank, CA at the end of this month.

I have been painting Bottle Cap Monsters as fast as my schedule will allow (I recently accepted a new job, so I am finishing up my 2 week notice at my last job of 11 years, so I have been working the old job during the day, and then giving another 4 hours in the evenings to my new job), so I haven't had tons of spare time to paint those little buggers. Thanks to everyone for all of the great comments and support, I am excited to put the Bottle Cap Monsters up for sale and see how well they do.

So my question for all of you is: What price range would you say is fair for these bottle cap monsters? The final finished product consists of the hand painted, one of a kind original acrylic painting on the inside of the bottle cap, the cap is then glued to a sturdy coffin shaped board, which I then hand sign and write the date the painting was created on. Not to make this a really long story, the reason I started doing these oddball little things was a way to offer an original piece of artwork at a reasonable price. I am going to be selling them for $20 each. So give me your input- do you feel like $20 is a reasonable price to ask for an original, one of a kind acrylic painting?

I typically spend close to 2 hours on each painting, so when you break it down that way, I am only getting about $10 an hour for the art. I just wanna know if you think the BCM's are too weird, or to pricey. Give me your input so I can have an idea on where I should be pricing these things!!

Stay Scary

-Patrick

(also, thanks so much for all the great suggestions on which characters to paint! I have been enjoying tackling all those awesome horror icons in such small scale! Keep the suggestions rolling, I will get to them as I can!)

I have been painting up a bunch of new "Bottle Cap Monsters" to sell at my table at Monsterpalooza in Burbank at the end of May. I thought it might be fun to get input from all of you on which horror icon you would like to see painted up in a bottle cap.

Send me your suggestions and I will see which ones are most in demand, then I will take a shot at painting them inside a bottle cap. I am planning on doing Jason Voorhees and Leatherface soon, so those are kinda guaranteed, but otherwise, let me know... Can be either modern horror or classic horror. Anything goes!

Thanks, and stay scary!!

I just purchased the LAST table for the Monsterpalooza show in Burbank, California at the end of May!

After waiting for some responses from my fellow horror artists here on DA, I went down and registered my business name with the tax comission, then sent a couple questions to the guy running the Monsterpalooza show. He let me know that he only had 1 table left, so not wanting to miss out on such an amazing opportunity I went ahead and bought it.

Now I am going to be psyched up for the next 2 months preparing and waiting for the show. Additionally, I will be working like mad to get as many new pieces of artwork together as possible, so keep a bloody eyeball open for lots of new Mordaciousness coming soon!

See ya at Monsterpalooza! (oh yeah, here is a link to their website: www.rubberroom101.com/monsterp…)

Keep raising the flag of horror!

Hey there fellow horror enthusiasts! Hope everyone is doing well and life is treating you good!

Last night I was at my local Barnes & Noble bookstore, browsing through a few of my favorite horror magazines. In the new issue of Horrorhound, I noticed an ad for an upcoming event in Burbank, CA called "Monsterpalooza."

Once I got home, I jumped online to check out the website listed in the ad. This is the link: www.rubberroom101.com/monsterp…

With the list of amazing artists and guests at this show, I am seriously considering making a trip out there and taking a shot at selling my artwork. My question is, has anyone heard of this event? Maybe this is their first year, or maybe I have been locked in my art dungeon for too long and I have never heard of this. Anyone else planning on going to the show or setting up a table? Any info would be greatly appreciated. It sounds like the perfect place for selling horror art to me!

Stay scary!!
