Happy Halloween!

As Halloween 2011 fades into oblivion I made this quick and dirty image in Photoshop. So until next year chills and thrills!

Something On The Rocks

Another Halloween/Horror inspired image I rendered in pencil and ink. Just a vision I had that popped into my mind one morning. Chills.

The Cudulla

Here is a flashback creation from 2007. A creature heavily inspired by the stories and visions of H.P. Lovecraft. This started out as an ink drawing and then I took it into Photoshop where I cleaned it up and colored it. Pleasant scares from other dimensions!

The Shrieker

A pencil drawing that just come out as I was playing around. A creepy figure emerges and a shriek from her causes your spine to tighten up from the fright of this sudden situation! You are frozen as she approaches her intentions unclear! Pleasant scares!

Cellar Dwellers

Another pencil drawing of creepy imagery inspired by things that go bump in the night. Or maybe beings creeping around in your cellar such as in this image. There is something about starting down the stairs into a dark basement, if you are in that creep-ed out mood. When I was a kid in New York we had a nice damp basement, but I never found any nasty character hanging around in it. Chills to you!

Dark Visions

Another pencil drawing I did earlier this week. I have been really into this pencil drawing in the last few weeks. I tend to not do this much rendered pencil work. Usually it is loose and light and inked later. I have been getting into Lovecraft stores again and even listening to an excellent podcast series on his work
So I am sure a touch of Lovecraft went into this drawing here. Pleasant scares all!

The Quiet Moment

More imagery I have created in the past week inspired by Halloween and the horror genre. This is a pencil drawing of the Frankenstein creature based on the Universal version. He is having nice moment hidden away from those pesky villagers and he found a new friend. Chills!

More Halloween Images

I think I tend to draw Halloween type imagery all year round. These ink/marker drawings were some of many images I created at the last few Sketch Tuesdays at the Minna Gallery in Downtown SF. Like many of my actual drawings if one is interested they can be purchased. Each of these images are 4.25 inches by 5.5 inches. Just contact me for details.

Closet Fiend

It is Halloween time already so it is time for me to post my ghoulish creations of all types. Here is a mixed media one. The creature is of pen and ink scanned  out of my sketchbook and the rest is Photoshop work. Chills!

Where has drawrick been?

I was hoping to keep a steady 2 postings a month or more going on, but here we are in October so I missed posting in August and September. Hey they say time flies, but this is ridiculous! So a few things that kept me busy were the San Diego Comic Con, a family reunion in New York, finally wrapping up and publishing my comic book DOCBOT, The Alternative Press Expo. In the mix was also some on site storyboard/presentation drawing at GYRO an ad/media agency. So finally I got back to this blog. In this posting is my FANTASTIC FOUR image I created for the 42nd COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL: SAN DIEGO SOUVENIR BOOK. 
Also I am posting a picture of my DOCBOT comic the was co-created by Michael V. Bennett.

Now back to creating and in addition looking for more work. Cheers!
