The Show Must Go On, If Not One Way, Then Another

Master_Nick-naughty-nurse-1 Sometimes when you don’t get what you want, whatever waits just around the bend is even better, though it takes twice as much persistence to attain it. I may have mentioned this before, but in the never-ending struggle to achieve the next goal and the next, it can be easy to forget. None the less, circumstance keeps presenting reminders.

 Case in point, the most recent Bodacious Bomshells Burlesque Revue. For a show called “Naughty Nocturnes,” I wanted to croon a medley of songs from the 30’s and 40’s which would fit the theme. Alas, Continue reading

Master_Nick-JabberwockittyBodacious Bomshells Burlesque Revue dancer and model Angel Kitty is returning to the land from whence she came. I was privileged to have her pose for my camera and canvas, and to appear on stage with her in several acts.

Last night, she played naughty nurse to my madman, a mental patient with monsters both on the mind and in it. While the Nurse/Kitty danced, I recited rhymes lines which tie in with my next book of horrific fiction. Continue reading

Angel of Death: Part IV

Master_Nick-Angel0f_Death4Just a quick entry today.
Yesterday, I reintroduced myself to coffee, and I’ve been up all night writing. Principal subjects are those wonderful, winged women known as succubi.

The mysterious Katra is featured in the current story, (as well as briefly mentioned in Gonzombie and Other Tales.) Continue reading

A flight of girly drinks sing thee to thy rest.

Master_Nick-flite0girlydrinxYeah, I’m a grown man and I like ridiculously rich, sweet stuff. I got three “girly” drinks at once whilst on vacation.
Deal with it.

In sooth, I was surprised when three liqueurs arrived, having thought I’d ordered just one. I’d never encountered the word “flight” regarding alcoholic beverages, (except in hack jokes about drunken pilots.) I even looked up “flight” afterward, but found no definition relevant to this context. Continue reading

I hope to have the latest Wonderland art finished in time to post tomorrow morning. In the meantime, an Angel– (pictured here as a White Rabbit–) and I must rehearse for a burlesque performance of Jabberwocky, to be part of this Saturday’s show.

The Angel of Death Rises

Master_Nick-Angel0f_Death1In completing my most recent painting, Rise Above The Swarm, I remarked that most succubi would rather engage in sex than in violence, but if driven to it, even a lover will show her steel.

For Thani, zombies provoke her rage.

At the start of a new painting, pencil work defines every edge. Even in this early stage, we see Continue reading

Wing of Bat, Horn of Goat

I’ve painted the skin of the succubus, including the delicate webbing of her wings.

Let us muse upon these appendages for a moment.
As winged figures of legend go, succubi are more plausible than fairies or angels.

Fairies are generally depicted as young women, mammals, yet with the wings of insects. Angels are depicted as humanoid, mammalian, yet with the wings of a dove. Perhaps some ancient storyteller was a little unclear when expounding upon the birds and the bees…  Continue reading
