David Brent & the Foley catheter

David Brent

Ricky Gervais' character David Brent surely isn't a monster. But he's odd and misfortunate, and I felt needed to honored here due to the fact that "The Office" has allowed me to forget I have a tube in my urethra helping to drain my bladder. It's all weird and inexplicable and according to those in the know, not at all life threatning or too serious. Regardless, given my current medical state Monstercake might be absent a couple of posts in the next week. Thanks for all the support and keep on coming by, the Monstercake will never be gone for good!

The Unstable sibling

The Unstable One

If anyone's curious, several months ago I played around with some vampire characters that I eventually posted on my other blog. I'm still working on the characters and their individual stories, but I imagine this one to be the younger sibling of the character in the previous post. I also wanted to try out some full-body sketches rather than the bust shots I did for the characters in my older post. These are all done with Hi-tec-c ink pens and a Pitt Brush pen for the heavy blacks. Blood courtesy of Photoshop.

Oh yeah, regarding the new template; I was having trouble with posting images for some reason in the old template so I decided to go with something a little simpler. I also wanted my posts to have more "room" visually so I went with the simpler style. I'll work on the color schemes for the backgrounds and fonts soon.

Ghost Tears


Since some folks are curious about what techniques I'm using I thought I'd mention them in my posts. This piece was done with acrylic inks, which have a thickness that helps create some nice, deep blacks. I initially start off with a pencil sketch off the top of my head, and than get into it with the inks, using a variety of nibs as well as a kolinsky sable brush to lay down the heavy blacks.

Today's post is in honor of Drawn!; along with introducing me to a vast multitude of incredible artists on the web, they've given my little blog a shoutout.
I'm incredibly honored!

Today's post is brought to you by Mike Mignola's Hellboy comic. It's a great read for any fan of the horror genre, and a huge source of inspiration for this very blog.
