Happy Anniversary!

Hello my friends, and wish Madison and I a happy anniversary. A year ago today, we had our first date, and we have been together ever since. Without a doubt, this has been the happiest year of my life. Madison and the kids gave me a reason to want to live again, and man i have been coming back strong. I have been working on my health and got rid of all my bad habits, and I mean all of them. Monday i start working out in the VA gym, which cost like a zillion dollars to build and it has everything you could ever want to exercise, to get a steam bath, whirlpool, and I can use it 24/7 for the rest of my life for free. Give me a year, I will look like I did when I was in my 30's, which was very buffed out.
I almost forgot, sorry, the piece above is the 2nd Deadly Dolz painting. There is a story behind it as well. The day I started this, Jane let me and Suzi know about one of her best friends, a Disc jockey in the DC area named Tim Davis was killed in a senseless act of violence by a monster. They caught the killer, but not before he shot Tim in the head with a shotgun, and threw him over a cliff, and there was a young lady with Tim as well that got thrown over the cliff as well. Somehow, she lived, even after a 100 foot drop.
When Jane told me about this, I talked with her, and we decided to make this picture a tribute to Tim. Hopefully prints will be made of it and sold through the radio station to help to pay for the hospital bills and funeral cost as well. And hopefully they can raise enough money to help pay the young girls bills as well. All of our hearts go out to both of their families, and I hope to hell they fry the Monster responsible for this. Janes website addy is to the right if any of you want to contribute or offer your condolences.
So instead of putting the Spooky make-up on Jane, I painted her straight. Next time around she will be in her full blown Spooky makeup and dress. Next up is a painting of a Zombie Cat, and then a picture of a friend of the Deadly Dolz, Roxsy Tyler. She has been a good friend to me and the DD'z and she is hosting her own show now, so I am going to do a painting of her that she can sell it at personal appearances to help pay for her cause. She is real good people.
I don't remember if I told you all or not, but they finally figured out what was causing a lot of my health problems, COPD. For those of you out there that have this know how bad it can be if it is not controlled. It feels like your chest is caving in, and you gasp for air. A lot of times you think you are having a heart attack. In my case, it caused me to have pneumonia twice this year, because they didn't realize where the problem was coming from. I would have spells back when I used to drink where I would cough and pass out, or it would feel like you where having a panic attack. I remember dropping down to my knees so many times because I thought I was going to pass out from it. It mostly came from years of smoking, but other things can add to it, such as stress. But the point is, now that we know what has been causing most of my problems, I can control them better. I will still get sick, but at least now I have a fair chance of fighting it, and that's all I can ask for after all the years of abuse to my body. So, I am feeling much more positive and the doc told me as long as I take care of myself, I could live another 30 years.
Changing the subject, I wish the heck Face Book would get it's act together and quit messing with everything. Just when you think they are done, they come up and do more junk to mess up your profile. It's getting very frustrating to have to keep going in there and change your settings.
An ladies don't forget about the Deadly Dolz contest, you have until the 1st to get me pictures and a resume. May the Darkness comfort you.

You all are so awesome!!!!

Hello my friends. The piece above is Based on "Sammy" from the movie "Trick r' Treat" I call it "Sammy unmasked" Basically it is my take on what Sammy would look like unmasked. I like this one, and all my friends do too it seems.
Up next is my first piece of Jane "Spooky" as a Deadly Dolz. Her TV show premiered last night, and as soon as I can get a link for you, I will.
In other huge news, Prinkipria; Tales of the Fantastic published the best interview with me to date, and according to all the comments left on the website, personal letters, and messages to me on FaceBook, my friends where touched by me being so candid and honest about my life and the abuse I had to suffer at the hands of monsters in my childhood. If you want to know more about this dark mind, you can read it here
And to top that off, I am doing another interview this coming week for another name publisher. Wow, now here is another biggie. All my friends know this last year I have really had to struggle with my health. I gave up smoking last year after 40 years of doing it, I finally gave up drinking, completely. I got it down to just a Friday night thing about 6 months ago, and now I have quit that completely as well. Now I am a member of a super cool gym where I can go 3 times a week to work out, and its just a round the corner, and the VA got me one of those exercise bikes as well.
Madison and I started a diet together a few weeks ago, and we are determined to get in great shape. We have some serious plans for the future, and we're gonna be healthy so we can enjoy it all.
I love all of you, but now its time to get back to work! Blessings my friends.

Your DREAM come true..

Hello my friends. I have a huge announcement that could change some young woman's life and give her a destiny she never dreamed of. This is what the deal is. I have created this project we call "The Deadly Dolz". The DD'z are a group of 3 models, each one is unique in their own look and personality. The first DD'z is Spooky, or Jane. Her website is to the right of this post right under the title. Spooky is a TV personality out of Washington DC, The second DD'z is Movie Star and Super Model Suzi Lorraine. Her website is to the right as well, and the painting above is the first DD'z Painting and it features Suzi as the Model.
What the 4 of us will be doing, (yes you could be the 3rd Dolz) is building a future together. Each will be part owner in the company, you will be receiving your percentage of money from Prints, t-shirts, action figures, Dolz, Novels, Graphic novels and perhaps a line of DD'z clothing. The money potential here, well there is no limit. You will be getting a 60/40 cut of any merchandise that features you, and on the things like logo shirts, group prints, or novels will be spilt different and we'll have a different agreement for that. Each idem will be priced differently so its hard to say up front the splint on that, but it will be equal and fair to each member.
The first year will be about providing me with ton's of pictures of you doing anything and everything. You will want to have photo's of you in motion holding weapons, fighting, and being sexy and scary.Keep in mind, we will do sexy, but only pg-13, so no nude photo's. Our goal is reach a mainstream audience and where going to do that with class. During the first year, I will get 3 paintings of each model done. At some point during the year we will put them up for sale. The Average print will sell from 10 to 20$ depending on the size. The first year you will be featured in radio interviews, blog interview, written interviews. Depending on your location, you may be featured in video as well. If you don't have a photographer, I can help you find one in your area.
The second year things will step up, we will feature new merchandise at this point, and The DD'z first novel DD'z will be making personal appearances and more video at this point. We are even considering and talking about a reality TV show featuring the DD'z.
Each year, the company will grow for a very time on your part. Not only will you be famous, you will be securing your future.. Like I said, the first couple of years, just get me tons of photos, so 20 years from now I will have photos of you and can keep producing new art of you.
What I am looking for is a woman with a look all her own that will work good with horror and action. You will have to provide a copy of your Driver licence if we decide to take you to the second level which will be a 2 month probation with Suzi, Jane and Myself on a closed board where we can talk freely, and get to know each other. (We will be checking to make sure you do not have a federal record and have no warrants out on you.) This is probably the biggest part. There will have to be good chemistry between us all. The second thing is you have to be a team player. There is no one star here, we are a team and work like a team.
Just by being part of this, many doors will be opened for you, and you will be encouraged to do them as long as it doesn't conflict with your commitment with the DD'z. You will be expected to follow a code of conduct, such as watching your language in public appearances, interviews, and so one. You have to remember, as a team, people will judge us by the others actions and words.
To Apply, you need to send 4 pictures of yourself, and tell us why you think you would be a good fit for us. Remember, this is a long term commitment, so only apply if you are serious about this. April 30 is the deadline for getting me your pictures and a bio of yourself Good Luck Ladies! If you have any questions feel free to e-mail me.
