Putrefying Venus by David Van Gough

Recently, I've been graced with the kind of commissions that stray right up my dark and twisted alleyway. This one being for a forthcoming comprehensive journal entitled "Necrophilia-a Global Perspective" by Lee Mellor. 

Lee of course interviewed me about my Art for his really excellent magazine-Serial Killer Quarterly, but what the book promises is a serious and varied psychological assessment of historical and forensic case studies. Plus there's a short article about the painting by me. 

It should make compulsive beach reading.

Release details to follow.

San Diego State University Screening Serial Killer Culture

My Man/son showcase is already three years young-hard to believe really.
That it continues to be my most popular and well known series, says something about the public's continuing fascination with the subject, and the none too paltry power of Netflix instant play.
Which is why I shall be honored to be attending a screening and subsequent panel for Serial Killer Culture, at San Diego State University on the 10th of April, alongside director John Borowski, Artist and publisher Hart Fisher, Criminologist Dr. Thomas Gitchoff, Head of SDSU Special Collections Robert Ray, and Federal Bureau of Prisons Retiree Joel Goodman.

Screening starts at 6:00pm at SDSU's Little Theater 161- $3 Students $5 Public.

There will also be an additional night to see the screening on the 11th of April, please note that I shall be unable to attend due to a former commitment

The Devil Tarot

Currently on my easel, is a commissioned work that will eventually be part of a Tarot deck, comprising 78 artists from around the globe.

 It's their second such deck-this time with a nautical theme, and for whatever reason, they thought I'd be a good fit for El Diablo himself, so armed and mustered and stoked with fire, brimstone,shock and awe, here for your viewing pleasure is a sneak peak of me in Satan's service.

I look like I have a tail in this picture.
