"I wanted to create sort of a generic, nameless man that I could do anything with; a character that could represent me or anyone else. But when I started this series of paintings with him, something still felt stifled about the way I was working. That's when I started dropping ink on top of the paintings. I would finish one, lay it on the floor and drop ink on it to break myself away from the preciousness of constructing a picture... Pretty soon, those ink blots began to take on a life of their own. They became a conceptual element within the paintings as well as a formal abstract element.... After doing a lot of these, some of them started to feel connected, so I began writing a story around them. The process that has grown out of this is that the paintings serve as a space for me to freely express some stream-of-consciousness ideas without having to worry about the bigger picture. Then later, I come back and see if they work their way into the comics... I had all of these short stories worked out that were based on paintings... I tied all those short stories together with some autobiographical elements, and that's what became the final book "The Blot."

The Covered Art Show is up at Secret Headquarters right now. Opening night was packed with people despite the rain, and we had a good time.
In addition to my version of Dick Briefer's Frankenstein #18 (above) that is for sale at SHQ, you can also purchase these other covers I've done in the last year (below). You can buy online or at the store. Contact SHQ to inquire about buying these paintings. And check out the rest of the amazing art that is in this show on the SHQ flickr.

Update- confusion over this one. When I was working on these,I google image-searched Behemoth, and found a photo that I used for reference. But this doesn't look like Nergal, so I couldn't figure out who it was... Turns out it's a dude from The Furor and the confusion was due to this blog entry about The Furor opening for Behemoth... SO, my mistake and the mystery solved. This is The Furor and they sound pretty good:
And this is me:
