There are 7 billion people on the planet. Giving away your heart to one of them, won’t kill you.

When Cupid’s arrow strikes, it’ll always be when you last expect it. So chill on feeling lonely or being upset about having nobody on Valentine’s Day.  Eros can’t see through that cloud of expectation!

When you do finally find your true love,  make sure it’s reciprocal and consensual. Any doubts could mean the romance is one-sided, that only leads to

Too much doubt will also kill your romance. Learn to trust your partner.

Sharing things in common is a must, but you don’t have to do everything together.

Give your significant other a little space. Me time is good for you too. Have your own interests.

Strong communication is the always key to long-lasting relationships.

 

Love is mystique. Love is heartache. Love is forever.

Why should death do you part?  If love is indeed eternal, then couples shouldn’t let a little thing like the afterlife get in the way.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Krampusnacht!

According to German folklore, December 5th is the day that Krampus visits all the naughty children and whips them for misbehaving, gives them lumps of coal, or steals them away to eat them later. You gotta be really, really bad to have the latter happen. You might not agree with the methods of Santa’s evil twin, but you gotta admit, he gets results, even the adults act a little better during the holidays. Besides, Santa doesn’t really like being the bad guy, and all that coal weighs down the sleigh. Better to outsource a job like that.

These days, we hold annual balls and festivals in honor of Krampus, who’s now more a whimsical dark hero to us misfits.

Wicked Art Wednesdays – Robb Mommaerts

Hailing from the midwest, uber-talented illustrator/graphic designer Robb Mommaerts, started drawing at the tender age of two, finding inspiration in Disney, Looney Tunes, the Muppets, children’s books and comics. He spent many years working as a professional graphic designer before setting out on his own in freelance illustration, creating for such companies as Cryptozoic, Boom! Entertainment, and Image Comics, just to name a few.

Why we love them: Robb Mommaerts loves monsters.  The creator of Robbvision (currently on hiatus) cites Halloween as his second favorite holiday, next to Christmas (btw, you should totally check out his Xmas work). Robb’s images capture the whimsical fun of Halloween and feature zany characters that both adults and children can love.

Wicked Art Wednesdays – Drew Rausch

Artist and comic creator Drew Rausch is our go-to guy for all things spooky AND weird. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times at horror shows and in addition to being uber-talented and crazy busy, he’s super nice and funny. Drew is co-creator of the webcomic My Blacks don’t match, with Jocelyn Gajeway, Eldritch! with Aaron Alexovich, and the subculture comic Sullengray, also co-written with Jocelyn Gajeway. His work can be seen in Boom Studios’ Cthulhu and Zombie Tales, SLG’s Haunted Mansion, IDW’s Edwards Scissorhands, and many more.

Why we love them: Based on my few convos with him, Drew is just like any of us, a big ‘ole Halloweenophile, comics fan, music lover, classic horror movie buff and lover of all things spooky and weird.  Whether he’s drawing webcomics or creating cool pins of offbeat characters he’s dreamt up, one can clearly see the influences of comics, monsters, and classic horror movies in his artwork.  Plus, he still takes commissions from time to time, when he’s not busy (which is almost never, so be patient, but his art is totally worth the wait.)  

 

Happy Caturday!

Don’t tell Disney Sr. Designer Caley Hicks that Halloween can’t be cute because there will be cute!  If you’re looking for new wallpaper or love to sew, you’re gonna fall in love with Caley Hick’s designs. Personally, I’m waiting for the day that she turns her boo-tiful art into wrapping paper!

Wicked Art Wednesdays – Sam Heimer

Happy October!  Kicking off Wicked Art Wednesdays this Halloween season with illustrator, designer, and master horror artist, Sam Heimer, who credits Edward Gorey, H.P. Lovecraft, and Alfred Hitchcock, among others, as early influences on his work. His art invokes the Halloween spirit with scenes of trick-or-treaters, skeletons, pumpkins, classic movie monsters, aliens, and Victorian and Steampunk themes, as well as film noir.

Why we love them: Chances are you’ve come across Sam Heimer’s art before and a big part of the reason is he still takes custom orders. No, seriously, I’m not sure if you all understand how big an opportunity that is. From magazines to book covers, t-shirts to beer cans, Sam Heimer’s work is everywhere and Halloween fans are better for it. He smoothly blends horror with whimsical trick-or-treat scenes, reminding us just how thin the veil between innocence and evil is on Halloween night. If terrifying could be cute, it would be a Sam Heimer piece. 

Happy Caturday

The Halloween season is basically here, depending on who ask, and I love it!

Happy Caturday!

Rejoice, Halloweenophiles! Now, that July 4th is officially over, the unofficial start of the Halloween season is creeping closer.  Soon, we’ll start seeing Halloween merch in craft and retail stores,  haunt announcements will follow, party planning begins, and Halloween will be in full swing before we know it. Until then, enjoy some spooky kitty art by Joanna Nelson.
