Master_Nick-Jabberwock7So it comes to this.
It always comes to this. The last few nights’ work on any painting involves filling in lots of little hand-cramping details. At the end of a session, it scarcely looks like I’ve done anything. All I see is the rest of the tiny details yet to be tended. It’s at times like these that I Continue reading

Master_Nick-Jabberwock6Faithful subscribers will know that I often post artwork as it progresses night by night, yet I rarely spell out much of my process. Today, I shall share a bit more.

Jabberwock: In COLOR!

Posted in Art, Fantasy, Illustration, Photography with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 6, 2014 by Master Nick

Master_Nick-Jabberwock5Over the last few decades, many dark works have had a muted blueish or greyish cast. I do like that look, for it sets an appropriately bleak tone. Still, well nigh everybody is doing it! It’s high time for Continue reading

Lovecraft, Baby!

Master_Nick-HPLoveShack4webAfter having created a bit of Lovecraft/Love Shack art, I had an overwhelming urge to write Lovecraftian lyrics to the tune of the B-52s’ “Love Shack.”
If you don’t get all the references, just read more Lovecraft!

Lovecraft, Baby!

In his house at R’lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming,
or is he a dream of
Lovecraft, yeah, yeah 

I’m headin’ back from the sunken R’lyeh!
Lookin’ for a corpse to re-animate!

Diggin’ up a corpse from a fresh grave!
I got me a hearse, and I think that it’s cursed, 
And we’re headin’on down to meet Lovecraft.
That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons even death may die! 

That Lovecraft wrote us many a page of dark and cosmic horror!

patriatersWe interrupt our regularly scheduled art-related post to ask you – nay, beg you to vote!

Don’t think your vote makes any difference?

Then why are voter intimidation tactics still employed by those with the funds and connections to do so? And why does each side spend so much money on their campaigns?

It’s simple. They wouldn’t bother if voting didn’t matter. Continue reading

Walk The Jabberwock, Talk The Jabber Talk.

Master_Nick-Jabberwock4I’ve reached the midpoint on this leg of my journey through the looking-glass. My painting hand may cramp terribly toward the end of each night’s work, but I started this endeavor, and I’m bloody well going to finish it!
I dare say it takes conviction to take on such tiny details as the Caterpillar’s face. Just look at that wee, sleepy mug!

Shadow of the Jabberwock

Master_Nick-Jabberwock3What’s that, whiffling and burbling through the Tulgey Wood?

Dare we draw nigh this creature for a clearer view?
