I know, weird. What the heck is it you ask?
Well, it's my entry for the Dreadful Project.
Never heard of it?
Let me fill you in...
The good people at The Sketchbook Project teamed up with
Showtime-- the cable network people. Showtime has a new series airing in May, Penny Dreadful.
The show's theme is based on cheaply printed books known as penny dreadfuls.
These books often featured monsters and gore, the stuff of nightmares!
(I'm thinking the time frame 1880-1910)
The project was open to 1,000 artist. People signed up quickly!
A six by eight inch card was mailed to each artists. We are to fill it with our best
"In the Shadows" interpretation.
Don't look to hard at my mine. I have no idea what mine is or where it came from.
I had a few ideas...but once I started it just went off...
Signing up for the project seemed like a good idea. The official project card showed up in my mailbox. Then it sunk in, I don't do horror! What was I thinking????
The reason I, and 999 others, jumped at a chance to be in the project was most likely because a lucky few will have their Dreadful art published in The New Yorker.
Yes, The New Yorker!!!
Not just in the magazine, but online and in other social media. (wherever that means)
I definitely think my piece falls under Dreadful.
Wish me luck and stop back soon!
