Last night was my Pre–birthday. As I write this I’m 47. Which is better than not making it to 48. I went to dinner with a pretty redheaded friend of mine named Dale and we had a few drinks at a cool little place called Rosemary and Beauty Queen followed by a late dinner at Dino’s (my first time, go there folks). played around for a bit with photography and afterwards I drove to East Nashville to quickly shoot a building that had captured my attention, a church of all things . Enjoy the photos.

It has begun, the Drawloween Challenge. 31 original illustrations for every day of October. Last year was my first and it was a blast participating. I turned my drawings from last year into a 24 page 6″x6″ book called Jerry Winnett’s Little Book of Horrors, and yes. it is for sale. I plan to do the same with this years batch of drawings as well. I’ll be putting up a link where you may purchase last years and this years collections.

When I was 16 I read one of my favorite scary books, Stephen King’s It. The monster under the bed, the boogey man, the evil clown, the dreaded stranger who looks to kidnap and kill. All of these child hood terrors wrapped into one truly creepy clown haunting a city’s sewer and abandoned places, a creature who lives on eating kids and their fear! While I loved the book and later the Audiobook (first only released in Europe), I detested the made for TV movie. To me it lacked the bite the book had (pun intended). Finally after 27 years It was remade and yes, It was everything I wished for.
So is it any wonder I along with many other artists have done an homage to Pennywise?Here is mine. If you look at it and think to yourself “Hey, Jerry. Your Pennywise looks like a combination of Tim Curry’s portrayal and Bill Skarsgård’s rendition”! If you did say this you’d be absolutely “Keeeerect”! It is! I wanted a combination of both portrayals of Pennywise! How could I not? So below is a day by day progression of Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
I’m going to be in art show at the end of September called Monsters and Merriment. I’ll be displaying some old and some new works for this show. Right now I’m playing around with an idea of doing some Old School Horror such as Frankenstein, Dracula, the Mummy etc. Below is a sketch of Frankenstein, it’s not bad it is still subject to change. Enjoy the sketch and I hope to see you at the show.

Around the age of 36 or so I finally bit the bullet and got my first tattoo. Yes It was a bit late in life to do so but what can I say I wanted to make sure I wanted one. I decided that when it came to getting a tattoo whether it was the first or the last it would have to be something I drew myself. Here I am 10 years later and have begun work on tattoo # 5, Quetzalcoatl! Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent of the Aztecs.
The god Quetzalcoatl, is the Feathered Serpent or Precious Twin. He is the godintelligence and self-reflection, a patron of priests. Quetzalcoatl is a primordial god ofcreation, a giver of life.
The Myans called Quetzalcoatl Kukulcan: Kukulcan, meaning “the feathered serpent,” was the Mayan’s supreme god. He was the god of the four elements, as well as a creator and the god of resurrection and reincarnation. … Kukulkan (“Plumed Serpent”, “Feathered Serpent”) is one of the many gods in the pantheon of Maya mythology.
I began the drawing for this tattoo about 430 pm on a Wednesday and worked until 12 midnight and worked on it again Saturday around 2am. So far I am loving both the drawing and the tattoo, the outline was done the day after the drawing was started. Luke Thrasher of Thrasher Inq in Nashville, TN is doing the tattoo. If you’re in town and looking for an amazing tattoo artist, I recommend contacting him. By the way he is Nashville’s only Private Custom Tattoo studio. You can look him up at https://www.facebook.com/Thrasherinqarts/ I’ll be posting updates on the drawing and the tattoo as they come along.
Today was a sad day indeed. George A. Romero passed away. I can say with quite a bit of happiness that I passed many an hour watching Romero’s movies starting with the black and white Night of the Living Dead which scared the crap out of me at the age of 10. His Zombie movies made the genre possible, we’d not have The Walking Dead without his pioneering vision. If your not familiar with Romero’s many movies here is a link to the Master’s filmography https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_A._Romero_filmography
