Over here at the Bloodsprayer, we love our horror (as you obviously know) but more importantly we love the people who use different creative outlets to show their appreciation to horror. The point of the “Little Shops of Horrors” segment is to give the people who are worthy of attention, a chance to shine and give you a little insight into their world. Don England has joined us this time and we are proud to add his name to our feature. Though all of Don’s art really strikes me as amazing, his takes on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre are something of pure beauty. So, check out Don’s bio below as well as some really great works of Art. Thank you Don England.
About the Author:
I have been drawing monsters since an early age, getting hooked on Planet of the Apes, Hammer films, and Godzilla movies that would play on the local TV stations on the weekends. My mother taught me the basics of drawing and the rest came from studying the artwork I would see in comic book growing up. Some of the artists that influenced me are Vince Locke, Richard Corben, Frank Frazetta and Bernie Wrightson. I dabbled in comic books in the 90s working on such titles as “Lethal Lita” and “Tales from the Ravaged Lands”.
The main media I use is pen and ink, but also use scratch board and watercolor. Over the last ten years I’ve shown my art at horror movie conventions in the mid-west, around ten each year. I just completed artwork for the cover of a CD for the band ViraVoid and the cover on the magazine GHOSTLIGHT, which will be released this Halloween.
