Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

This is based on a nightmare that stuck with me for many years. I believe that this was brought on in part from watching Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Other parts of that dream involved an evil viking with flaming eyes, and a mine-cart ride through/over hot lava. What kid's nightmare is complete without lava??

Happy Halloween!

The Immortal

This is yet another sketch that started off as a doodle and turned into something else as the evening rolled on. The narrative I had in my mind when I was painting this was that this powerful pan-like creature is immortal, and at the end of time he will have only his memories of those who are lost.

I have had this concept in my head for around two years in various incarnations. It feels good to have a piece to show for it! I can't give out too much of the story because it's currently still in flux, but I wanted to post this image to sort of up the pressure to finish the idea.

I tend to get a lot of ideas, but seldom find the time to pursue them with the gusto that I would want. This piece is merely a thought that sparked a story I am currently working on. My girlfriend Kristel insists that I actually get out the whole story and do more paintings for it instead of zipping around to some other ideas. I think she is right.
