"The Werewolf Often Dines Alone" - oil on cradled panel, 18 x 24 x .75 inches. Ready to hang. Available here and at Unlimited IPA through the end of October.
He's not proud of his table manners. He can't help the mess at mealtime. If you're not particular about these things, there is a werewolf who would love your company at dinner.
October, the month of monsters, has arrived.
Here in the studio, the summer was overrun with the creation of monstrosities for this month's show at Unlimited IPA, where the owners asked me to show something a little...peculiar. Oh yes. Please and thank you.
Traditionally, monsters (werewolves, vampires, ghouls, zombies - OH MY!) are something to be frightened of, to run from - things that make you scream.
But what if, just for a change, we walk in the shoes of a monster? Do they have feelings? Are they lonely? Are they sad? Do they find joy in simple things? Are they worried about how they look, what others think, how to find friends?
The show explores the pitfalls of being a werewolf, the romantic interests of monsters and the joys of making a monster your friend. I hope it leaves you looking under your bed with a smile. :)
