I am extremely pleased to announce that CFSL  will be selling the book from the collective Gorilla Artfare.
It's an honor to be a part of the collective and book. I have to say, I have seen a PDF of the book and it looks incredible. You can check out a preview here  : PREVIEW


I just finished the sequel to Harrison Geillor's "The Zombies of Lake Woebegotten"
which will be called " The Twilight of Lake Woebegotten". You can see where this is going.

I was directed to spoof on Grant Wood's "American Gothic" painting, and (sort of) suggest the characters of "Twilight". I had to avoid a direct likeness because of jumbo lawsuits. No thanks!

Started in oils and finished up digitally:

Love the take on American Gothic. Very Marcel DuChamp. You should post that on FB. That would be a huge hit...

Great illo scott, love the colours you use and depth that you get.
I havent downloaded the pdf of the book yet, I'm thinking that if I can wait I'm going to leave it until I receive the hard copy :D

BTW Scotto, saw your book in the art store yesterday, the cover actually drew my attention before I knew it was yours, so i'm not just saying that. I'm surprised it was so small- but it would definitely make a good present for a kid who wants to draw.
Great work, p.s remind me never to get on your bad side, don't want you slamming me over the head with a coffee pot, sir ;)

Jenn- thanks big sis! FB - done ;)

Steven- thanks man! how's life? painting?

Charles -many thanks sir!

Jeremy - thank you sir. Keep up the constant drawing - it's paying off!

Roddo -thanks dude. For sure- a pdf isn't going to replace the feeling of having that book in your hands.

Are you referring to that instructional book? I still haven't seen it! I asked them to send me a copy but they never did. I guess I'll have to buy a copy....lame.

Yeah - definitely a book for beginners. The tough part was that they wanted me to cover SO much so it's more of a brief overview than an in-depth look into any one discipline.

and...I would never slam a coffee pot into your cranium. A pot of hot tea ...maybe ;)

Congrats on the artbook. I am sure you are in some very fine company in that volume. I grew up listening to Geillor on the radio as a kid - I don't know how you feel, but I consider it an honor that you to get to do a project for him.
