Countdown to Halloween begins this Wednesday!

Believe it or not, October 1st is but a few short days away. I can hardly believe it myself. I'm mostly prepared for the Countdown to Halloween this year, but I still have a few things I need to wrap up before then. Time to get a move on.

I decided that today I would go ahead & decorate the blog for Halloween, as well as post my schedule for the month. 

Every Monday, Wednesday & Friday is More Halloween Ideals!
Remember back in 2012 when I had the Halloween Ideals posts? Well, there's more of that. In 2012, most of the images I shared were from the 1960's. This time around it's the 1950's & the 1970's. I have a few issues missing from the early 50's, due to the fact that I was unable to acquire them. And I think that there may not have been a fall issue one of those years. But nevertheless, there will be an avalanche of fantastic vintage imagery posted here three times a week!! My posts from 2012 are pretty popular on the Pintrest!

Every Tuesday & Thursday it's NEW Halloween Art from me!
Yep! That's NINE whole days, with new art made by yours truly. I actually have 5 of these finished & ready to post. The other 4 are mostly done, I just have some final touches & backgrounds to add.

That's Great, Now What About the Weekends?!
I was trying to come up with some theme for the weekend days, but I decided to keep those open, with the option to not post if I'm not feeling it. So Saturday & Sunday will be very random posts, maybe no post at all. 

So that's it, in a pumpkin shell. Hope that you'll stop by and check out the goods this year!!

September half over, Countdown to Halloween coming up fast!!

It won't be long now. October first is right around the corner. And I'm pleased to let you all know (if you don't already) that the Countdown to Halloween hub has been updated with info & badges for this year's countdown! If you are interested in participating, check out the site for more details. This is the 60th anniversary of 'The Creature from the Black Lagoon', so the badges for this year are Gill Man themed. I picked Shawn Robare's art for my badge this year:


I'm super busy right now preparing art for the countdown, an art show at ZaPow and the upcoming issue of Little Shoppe of Horrors. I'll be back at the end of September to decorate my blog for Halloween, and give you an outline of what to look forward to.

See you soon......

It's coming...

Things will be a little quiet around here until closer to Oct. 1. While most of my posts are already prepared, I'm still working on new Halloween art for the countdown.

In the meantime, you can always check out Dinosaur Dracula's Halloween Countdown (which starts tomorrow, I believe). That's an extra month of Halloween countdown!

See you back here, late September!!

Isaac & Malachi

One of my favorite movies to revisit in the summertime is 'Children of the Corn'. It was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid, I watched it A LOT. Also I had a huge crush on Isaac.

I've been trying to get around to finishing this duo for awhile. This is another one of those circumstances where I actually started working on a piece, two or three years ago. I got about halfway through it and decided it wasn't working for me, so I abandoned it. A few months ago I started working on a new version, and here it is!

This could also go along with my Kids of Horror pieces I've been doing this year.

Monsterama in Atlanta GA

Hey Everybody!
Just a heads up to let you know that I will be appearing at Monsterama in Atlanta next weekend. Come check it out!!

Hey Everybody! This coming Sunday is my birthday, and I thought that I might have a sale. Maybe I can make enough money to buy myself something nice.
So here's how the sale works:

Handy Dandy Instructions!

1) Pick out the two prints you want my clicking on the PayPal button for each print.

2) Once you select your prints, go to check out. When you are checking out there should be a place to add a note to seller. In that box, please write in 'Happy Birthday Belle Dee' and what print you would like for FREE!

You can ask about prints that I've had in the past, but don't have currently listed. Some include my Monsters & Mates series & my Dark Shadows pieces (Angelique & Quentin and Julia Hoffman). I have limited numbers of these.

Instead of a FREE print, you may also request this set of four monster head stickers

These are 3" round on vinyl. These are also limited.

I'm trying to not make this super complicated, but feel free to contact me with any questions. Thanks and happy shopping!
