It’s been almost a month since the Welcome To My Nightmare VIII show. Only getting around to reviewing the event on June 8th because I’ve been so busy. Despite the MTA doing it’s usual service work, shutting down subway lines for the weekend, having shuttles, etc., it was still a pretty good show. I sold some old issues of my Psycho Bunny comic. Everyone exhibited awesome art and photography while bands played on the stage. Downtown writer legend Jennifer Blowdryer came down to show her support for everyone. So in all, a jolly time was had by all.
Here’s some photos from that night. Thanks to local photographer Geraud P. Kraezik. (You can check out his photos at gekaart.com)
Of course I took plenty of photos of my own. Forgot my digital camera, so my outdated cell had to do. Oh, and naturally I forgot to take photos of the artwork I had for display. Genius. They were the large scale ink and pen Prometheus pieces I had shown twice last summer. They were seen at the Bushwick Open Studio 2012, and in Ridgewood, Queens at the Hi-5 horror art show. Below is photo taken last year.
Here’s what my table looked like during the Nightmare night, complete with Psycho Bunny’s mini alcohol bottles. You can always order my comics and art through my website: http://witchesbrewpress.com/
I met this really neat lady who goes by the name of Jackie Hates You. Not only does she create these awesome paintings, but she has this Esty shop as well. I love her jewelry, and you should as well.
Here’s a pic of work by Our Perpetual Lady of PMS.
Finally, here’s a photo of a photo I took. Gerauld P. Kraezik displayed his previous pics while shooting new ones throughout the night. Here’s one of the Greek Punk band Barb Wire Dolls.
There were other bands and artists not mentioned, but in all everyone enjoyed themselves. This show along with MoCCA Fest 2013 reminded me that I should go back to creating new work. It’s been so busy with school and whatnot. Now that school’s over, I can get back to doing what I truly love.
Thanks to Xtene for putting this show together.
