Skull Headz Rule

I really like the Skull Head Zombie Cats ... they're so much fun to draw and they look hilariously adorable in a vile and sinister way. Big massive heads that look a little more grumpy than the rest of the zombie cats. 

They get extra grumpy on windy days ... the wind whistles through their skulls ... very aggravating.

We don't feed the trolls ... not directly ... we just delete the comment and block.
Our high school teacher thought the artwork should be happier too. We can't even remember his name any more ....

Sunday Skull ...


For the past few days and all through this weekend the zombie cats and I have been scavanging through 10 years of collected 'stuff' in an attempt to bring some order to the chaos that is our basement studio. We're finally finished and ready to start the next chapter of our quest for global domination. As such ... the commissions list will be closed as of 11:59 pm November 12, 2017
After that time I will no longer be taking commissions (unless we've already discussed it) but instead be focusing on putting the zombie cats on products from print on demand stores like zazzle while at the same time finishing off the remaining commissions, getting the remaining artwork out in the mail and then working on the zombie cats comic and larger zombie cat paintings.

It is exciting for me ... but I don't really want to ramble on about any of it because it really only makes sense in my head ... and it's a FORREST sized image painted with a very large brush so the details don't make sense. I think it's best for me to not talk about it and instead ... show you what I mean by doing it.

And with that ... I'm signing out.
Message me if you want a commission ... less than 7 hours as of this post.
Cheers!!

Christmas Cats are coming

Christmas is underway and the zombie cats like this holiday ... a lot. All the food and festivities, snacks, treats, bright lights and fatty foods, over eating, sluggishly slow humans drunk on eggnog and good cheer.
It all makes for easy victims meals for the zombie cats.
It also helps when you have a decoy as cute as this tuxedo cat in a santa hat =)

It Takes Guts ...



The zombie cats are helping me clean up the basement ... so much work already ... having gut spilling zombie cats only makes things harder. But we love em ... guts and all.

Today is the last Friday that I actively promote commissions ... after this weekend it's all over for me. So get one before the getting is gone.

The reason for this is simple ... while drawing and painting commissions for other people is awesome and fun, and I do know how lucky I am to have this gig, the stress of it all has been getting to me. It's not the stress of creating someone elses cat as a zombie ... that's easy. But the stress of relying on commissions and sales of individual work is becoming to hard ... so it's time to step away from that and just focus on creating more zombie cats, getting the booklets done AS I FEEL LIKE and start working a lot harder and smarter on the print on demand stores like zazzle, redbubble and society6.

It's time to get even more global and start thinking larger ... which also means larger paintings =)

Anyways ... today is all about cleaning up the basement so that my studio can be exactly how I want it and Monday I can start fresh and full of as much pep as I can muster. I'm going to need your help though ... so keep the good vibes and words of encouragement coming because that's what has kept me doing what I do :)

Thank you ...

Get Sketched or ....



Or don't ... right?
I have come to the conclusion that there is no real future in commissions for me. It's to hard to find the work and it gets to frustrating when trying to get things together and mail them out. I'm not cut out for that yet ... so this is going to be my last weekend for taking commissions until next year. So if you want one and we haven't talked yet, get in touch quick. If we've already chatted and plan were made, I'm still honoring that plan. If I am currently working on your portrait or you are waiting on the mail to deliver your parcel, I thank you for your patience ... it is coming. Everything that needs to be mailed out will be out in the next few days.

There are some changes coming ... and it's super frustrating and I am beating myself up about how slow I am ... but I keep plugging away thanks to everyone out there that keeps giving the encouragement and support. I would never been able to do what I'm doing with out all of you.
Thank you

More soon ... in the mean time ... if you want me to do a portrait commission then contact me. If you can't afford to commission me and would still like to see a sketch of your pet, or you, or whatever ... just leave me a msg or tag me in a post and I'll try to get to it one of these days. I'll do freebie sketches when time allows. The above images are some from instagram that I did.
Do you follow me on instagram?

No pressure right?

Thanks for reading, now get posting your pics :D
