Not my usual kind of post, I know.
But, these Creative Chaos paintings, done by Vadi Tkachev, kick a little ass! They’re created using acrylic, ink, spray paint, & markers.

CRADLE TO THE COFFIN: THE FABLE OF DRACULA AND LULU By Alan Gandy

CRADLE TO THE COFFIN: THE FABLE OF DRACULA AND LULU
By Alan Gandy
cover-5
Did you ever wonder about Dracula’s childhood? His parents? Do you think you know how he became Vampire, better yet – do you think you know how any Vampire came to be?

The Fable of Dracula & Lulu is a ‘children’s book for adults’, that takes us on the journey of how a sad & lonely little boy became the infamous blood sucker we know today. Alan Gandy has rewritten Dracula’s history, good vs evil, Heaven vs Hell, and even Epic Battles have rules!

It’s greatly written, beautifully illustrated, and includes an afterward from the author that show how much time, effort, and research went into this book.

I really enjoyed this story, and it has me thinking about the childhood lives of other monsters! Was The Creature From The Black Lagoon bullied in school because of the way he looked? Did the Warewolf have to seek therapy because of body issues? What if The Mummy was claustrophobic? Do you think The Invisable Man got lonley?
