I am a Failure
Yep, I'm a failure....at doing creepy. Over the years I have tried to create creepy, gory, gruesome in answer to that small corner in me that sometimes craves to touch on the dark side.
I can't do it. Everything (which hasn't been alot) that I have tried to 'do dark' ends up with a definite lighter side. The head
above is an order for a zombie bust. I was given a picture to base
it on, a zombie with a definite evil leer. Somehow my tools/brain/hands came up with evil zombie's Mr. Congeniality
I even noticed that the maggots in his one eye look like a small
sleeping child hugging something.
The good thing is that the gal who ordered this is happy with it and said she like that it had 'character'. A zombie with character - who'd a thunk it!
