Now don't be starting that "Little Grant" thing! It took me almost 30 years to lose that nickname.

I think my two words for this would be "Smelly Cat" hehe I remember as a child taking trips to the basement of your parents home to see your latest and greatest. What a treat that was and this is! You're amazing Little Grant...... Michele Snyder Bolton

Creepy? Not at all. Creepy is when you see a guy in a glass coffin with cockroaches crawling out his ears and springs bolting threw his cheeks. humm. I think I will paint that.

I can see beauty and madness. Your work has the same quality Poe's has. I am a former Literature teacher so this a compliment, of course. Keep the good job!

Thanks everyone. This one is one of my best sellers at the convention art-shows, and it's definitely one of my favorites. I really wanted to capture Poe's remarkable affinity for conveying madness, from the inside out.

I find this comforting some how, call me morbid. Is it the teeth which remind me of a horse? Or is it the kitty. Either way, your style is so unique to you, super keen, and I can't wait to see more.

Okay, this one's going to give me nightmares. I like the use of texture and the monochromatic pallet. This is just too strange for words. Great work!

I read that story, I was actually thinking about doing a picture about it. This drawing is good and scarier than the book.

Oh, my goodness. Two words for this...."Creepy" and "Good" So keep up the creepy work. Smile

Art at its best.
