ZOMBIE WALK OF FAME book is available on AMAZON!

Thanks again to everyone who pledged to my KickStarter campaign to fund the publishing of my ZOMBIE WALK of FAME book!  Even though the campaign failed to reach its goal, I've decided on another avenue of publication.  Now, my collection of 101 iconic zombie celebrity portraits is available on Amazon.com!  At $22,95, this full color collection of hand-drawn artwork is over $7 cheaper than the initial pre-order price which was on KickStarter!  Also, I'm offering a free drawing to the FIRST 5 people who purchase the book and give it a review on Amazon!  After posting your review, just message me on social media or dregstudios@gmail.com with your shipping address and I'll drop a drawing and DREGstudios! swag pack in the mail to you as my way of saying thanks!

#BlowUpTrump is ALIVE and WELL!!!



Looks like about 41% of you will not be as happy as I am in regards to #BlowUpTrump being back on the air!  He was recently shut down after a whopping 18 hours on Instagram!  My satirical art project places The Donald strapped with explosives at different places throughout the world.  Some are places followers would like to see disappear, some are targets of Donny Boy himself.  Either way, I've welcomed everyone else to play along so if you're inclined to create your own #BlowUpTrump images and drop them online, I'm more than happy to share them!

Here are some of #BlowUpTrump's recent targets...

Pictures from MOTOR CITY NIGHTMARES!

Detroit really turned out to get their creep on this past weekend at Motor City Nightmares!  This was my first Horror Convention of the year and my first time in Michigan since I was a teenager.  Thanks to the entire show staff and all the loyal fans who turn out year after year to make this event successful!  You guys kept me busy and thoroughly entertained!  For those of you who don't know, I'm a Michigan native though I was raised here in Tennessee.  I felt like I got one heckuva homecoming with commission requests all weekend and a great reception to my art from both fans and guest alike at the show!  Here are some of the pics I snuck in over the wild weekend!

My first time displaying my re-imagining of Picasso's Guernica at a Con- it was a hit!

9/11 Revisisted

Infamy is a sad state in which to find a specific date in history.  Most dates marked with remembrance are of celebration and referred to as holidays.  What do you call a day of remembrance such as 9/11?  It's a bizarro, bastardized version of a holiday.  We share recollections of where we were when the towers fell in a testimony to how time stopped in shock.  America (and much of the world) was glued to their television screens in an Orwellian trance.  Five years ago, I wrote of Living in a Society of Fear for the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 (anniversary...another term which doesn't lend itself to define the occasion).  This year, I created a drawing from a different place- a place of finding peace.  In remembrance of tragedy, let us not be driven by fear.  Let us also learn from our mistakes- decisions as a nation made in rage and retaliation.  It is a turbulent world in which we live. We first have to find our inner peace then learn to share the space we live in.  This is the only world we have.
