Vampire!

Later this year Renegade Arts Entertainment will release the first in a series of prints drawn by among others, Frank Quietly, Mark Buckingham and Leigh Gallagher.

The launch set is inspired by Doug Bradley's Spine Chiller audibooks, artworks with a horror and Gothic bent/bias.
When invited to contribute i had no problem saying YES!, but then i faced the frustration of drawing 'whatever i want', making a CHOICE, not always as easy as you'd think. Then one winter evening after a zillionth viewing of Dracula Prince of Darkness, it seemed obvious, like giant blood dripping letters obvious - HAMMER!

No, not the guy in the baggy pants.

This snarling undead darling is especially for Indio, good bloke and a terrifically twisted talent, go look, but beware those of a nervous and fragile disposition, since you'll be ripped blubbering and screaming from your sheltered life.

Nice. So much energy in your work, Shane.
