Merry Cthulhmas

So I'm working on Christmas Eve (much like Marley) for my terrible boss (much like Scrooge) because of the recent ice storm.  Sad thing is I'm self-employed!  I did take the time to do this for all my friends to wish you all the best this holiday season!

Closure - Midnight Harvest


Closure from the Midnight Harvest art book.

Of all the 31 Inktober drawings, this is  the one that really crawled under my skin and creeped me out.

As I’m typing this there are just 13 hours left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter.   Thanks to backer support, the book is now a hardcover with an additional 12 page horror comic story I’ll write, draw, and colour.  We are also over 40% of the way to another stretch goal and making the book dimensions larger.

27 of the 31 drawings have already been coloured, Over a third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

I’ve been offering first-chance options on new art rewards to backers and just opened up sketch cover commissions exclusively to backers from a limited supply of these blank Marvel and DC  books I have on hand.

Please take the time to look at this art book project, and I would greatly appreciate it if you would share with any friends you think might be interested!

Thank you!

Tangled - Midnight Harvest

Tangled from the Midnight Harvest art book.


I’d used this coloured piece for the Kickstarter announcement, but never showed it on its own.  It was the second I drew for Inktober and the second I coloured, though Freshest was the first.

Looking at it on the colour calendar it might feel too full of light, so I may recolour it before the book goes to press.

As I'm typing this there are 32 hours left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter.   Thanks to backer support, the book is now a hardcover with an additional 12 page horror comic story I'll write, draw, and colour.  We are also over 30% of the way to another stretch goal and making the book dimensions larger.

26 of the 31 drawings have already been coloured, Over a third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

I’ve been offering first-chance options on new art rewards to backers and just opened up sketch cover commissions exclusively to backers from a limited supply of these blank Marvel and DC  books I have on hand.

Acolyte - Midnight Harvest

Acolyte from the Midnight Harvest art book.


Inspired by the memory of a drawing I did in my sketchbook years ago, which itself was inspired by a scene in Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong

As I'm typing this there are 34 hours left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter.   Thanks to backer support, the book is now a hardcover with an additional 12 page horror comic story I'll write, draw, and colour.  We are also over 30% of the way to another stretch goal and making the book dimensions larger.

Once Bitten - Midnight Harvest

Once Bitten from the Midnight Harvest art book.
View the Kickstarter here.

Back to colouring these in the order they were drawn.  I had just watched AMERICAN MARY prior to drawing this one and I think I was trying to capture the glorious intensity of the main character.

Two days left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter and we’ve crossed the first stretch goal and the book is now a hardcover and are very quickly closing in on the second stretch goal of a 12 page horror comic story. As of typing it's $133 dollars away.

25 of the 31 drawings have already been coloured, Over a third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

Midnight Harvest Update

The full update can be seen here
The excerpt below might be of particular importance to people on the fence about backing this project:
Backer Exclusive!
These aren't first dibs, they're completely backer exclusive and won't be made available as regular rewards later.
I have a stack of blank comic sketch covers. Exclusive to backers at the printed book level, on a first-come basis for cover choice, you can commission a sketch cover drawing for $50 and have it added to your reward.
The blanks I currently have available:
1 Here Comes Daredevil
1 Judge Dredd
1 Captain America
1 Ghost Rider #1
2 Wolverine #300
2 Swamp Thing #14
4 Mighty Thor
4 Superman/Wonder Woman
2 Wonder Woman
4 Harley Quinn #0
6 Batman #0
While I think it'd be great to do a Midnight Harvest approach to these covers, I'm cool with a classic approach to the characters.  But . . . Gothic Horror Wonder Woman?  Yeah! 
If you want a specific cover, message me to see if it's still available, if it is, just add $50 to your pledge and you'll have the comic added to your reward package!
~Richard

Unseen - Midnight Harvest


Unseen from the Midnight Harvest art book.

Back to colouring these in the order they were drawn.  Unseen mixed a little Oedipus with The Yellow Sign and general creepiness!
Three days left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter and we’ve crossed the first stretch goal and the book is now a hardcover and are very quickly closing in on the second stretch goal of a 12 page horror comic story.

24 of the 31 drawings have already been coloured, Over a third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

I’ve been offering first-chance options on new art rewards to backers as well.

Satisfied - Midnight Harvest

Satisfied from the Midnight Harvest art book.

I've been colouring these pieces in the order they were made in for the most part, but I skipped ahead and coloured this one since her smile and the name of the piece seemed most appropriate to reaching the funding goal for the book.

Four days left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter and we've crossed the first stretch goal and the book is now a hardcover. 23 of the 31 drawings have already been coloured, Over a third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

I’ve been offering first-chance options on new art rewards to backers as well.

Harvester - Midnight Harvest

Harvester from the Midnight Harvest art book.

One of the two pieces for the book that really show how much Clive Barker's artwork and fiction has influenced my approach to horror (The other being One More Nail).  Hope to give him a copy of the book someday.
Five days left for the Midnight Harvest Kickstarter and 90 % funded. Well over half of the drawings have already been coloured, A third of the interior drawings have already been claimed as rewards as well.

Friday the 13th

When I was about to launch the Midnight Harvest project on Kickstarter I intended to opt for the usual thirty-day window which would have closed on Saturday, December 14.

I had to stop and think for a minute . . .

This was a book of Inktober drawings inspired by Halloween, horror and all the things I like best about October.  How could I not choose to end it a day earlier when that day would be Friday the 13th?!  It made this a 29 day campaign, but I didn't think a day would really make that big a difference.

So, this Friday at 11:59PM the window to help make this book of darkly erotic drawings happen closes.

I'm hoping Friday the 13th will be a lucky day!

Stan Sakai and CAPS

Hoping to help in some way.

From the website:

For nearly 30 years, Stan Sakai’s Usagi Yojimbo has set a high-water mark for creator-owned comics. 
Stan’s wife, Sharon, has battled a debilitating illness for some time; after an extended hospital stay and convalescence, she is now back home, but her condition requires 24-hour care and medicines that cost more than their insurance covers.
