This painting was created in an unprovoked attempt to disturb my freshmen roommate during the first few days we knew each other. Success!
And, yeah, that might be another Dave McKean-style Joker demon in there. Can't get enough of him.

Whenever it was Halloween, that meant Treehouse of Horror, and whenever it was Treehouse of Horror, that meant these guys. There was something about recalling those first few batches of Simpsons specials that just make me FEEL sitting in the living room with candy, autumn, anticipation, and light-hearted spooky entertainment. These and those Roseanne Halloween specials...of which I own the DVD collection.

Well, hey there! This is Alex Kropinak, and I've been asked to help post some art here, and what better time to do so than Halloweentime? So, here's a spooooooky marker drawing inspired in part by two movies - "Monkey Shines," and "Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders."

This big bastard (called the Beholder) was on an ad on the back of some comics I had as a kid, and when what appeared to be his cousin showed up in "Big Trouble in Little China," I lost it. That comic ad has stayed with me. I'm pretty sure he's in THIS, too.
(for Wed., October, 22)
After Kingdom Come's Kahn-ing of Captain Marvel, this little guy gives me an icky feeling whenever he shows up - no matter how much I want to see him in a comic screaming, "Flay-Vor Flayve!!!"

I'm still on a Kazuo kick and remembered how utterly terrified I was when the mysterious, seemingly harmless centipede monster in the wonderfully enjoyable Drifting Classroom Vol. 3 lifted up and revealed its underside and gaping mouth - so I decided to draw it, too. Eeeeeeee.
(Sorry, this was supposed to be posted on Friday, October 17, but I was at MMM and couldn't. Cause I was drunk.)
I've only JUST discovered manga horror grandmaster Kazuo Umezu in the last couple years, so do yourself a favor and creep yourself out with some of his work including the two beautiful volumes of Cat-Eyed Boy currently available.

...is the Governor, and he took the business end of a karma shovel to the face in Walking Dead #33 during a sequence that got me so pumped with pure cathartic enjoyment that I was sickened by how pumped I was. It's telling that this rapist fuck is the single worst being in a series ABOUT zombies eating brains. FUCK YOU, you horrifying bastard.

Each day this month I'm gonna draw something with a horror theme in addition to whatever other blah blah blah I do. I'm starting with Jason from Friday the 13th part 2. But it won't always be movies or slashers or whatever. Prepare to poop your pants.
