Evil creatures

Below are two comissions I made recently. The theme chosen was Evil creatures. I love drawing monsters and I had a blast coming up with them.

This piece was based on Werner Herzog's "Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht". Nosferatu is a very interesting creature since he can love and desire something but they never die. They become old and decrepit but they live for eternity. In a way that is a terrible way to leave and even though Nosferatu is an evil creature you can actually feel for him. The painting below is based on the moment when Nosferatu attacked Johnatan Harker.

I love witches too and for some reason it's always fun to draw witches that are hungry for little children. There's something very whimsical and charming about old lady witches and you can't help it but root for their success in their recipes.

HAPPY DOG

I haven't been updating what's been going on with my life recently. One of the reasons was that I was really embarassed about my last story so I didn't want to expose it to the world. However, the truth has to be revealed and here I am to share my last experience with all you guys.

It happened last Halloween. I was getting ready to go to a friend's Halloween house party. The costume I ended up choosing was DJ Lance Rock from the "Yo Gabba Gabba!" show. My roomate, his lady friend, and her dog were hanging out at my place. I came to the leaving room and surprised everyone with my amazing costume!



No one seemed to be really excited with the exception of the dog that kept staring at me..


The dog jumped on me at once. He seemed really happy and ready to play. I was surprised in how friendly an animal could be.  That for me was a good sign of dog's loyalty towards men.



Suddenly, my roommate and his lady friend started laughing at us. I thought to myself:  " They were finally laughing because they were able to recognize my amazing costume and how funny I was." But I was completely wrong. They weren't pointing at me. They were pointing at the dog. Yup! ... It had a boner!!




That was a really awkward situation.  I have no clue what lead the dog to such delight.  Was it  the bright orange color?  Was it my ridiculous puffy hat?... Dogs can be considered man's best friend but it's hard to read them sometimes. To avoid embarrassments never wear a Halloween costume around dogs.
