Pre Birthday, Red, & the Electric Church

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.

I, Georgie, am Pennywise the Dancing Clown!

Ugly Clown or Bob Gray sm

Oil on tin 8″x10″

Aka Bob Gray!

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.

Going Old School Horror

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.

Quetzalcoatl, new tattoo!


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  I’ll be posting updates on the drawing and the tattoo as they come along.


RIP George Romero

Romero RIP SM

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


4th of July 2017

July_4_17_03-Edit-Edit copy

A previous location is revisited. Previously I’d explored this house with my buddy Justin and I’d been wanting to go back. So this Fourth of July fellow photographer Jay Farrell and I did just that. Unlike my previous visit I noticed a rather unwelcoming sign of concrete and earth piled up to make the parking a bit less accessible, rude. But oh well small cars win the day.


The side door from outside, notice the skeleton key lock! Vintage!

July_4_17_016 copy

From the inside that door isn’t quite as inviting.

July_4_17_065 copy

I think perhaps the piano was played a little too hard at some point, what’s on the boob tube? A little down the hall I come across an appropriate holiday card, don’t you think?

July_4_17_064 copy

and a little farther up the hall….

July_4_17_063 copy

If I thought the side door looked menacing I was left praying no one would come through the front.

Feeling a pressure to my bladder I sought out the bathroom, but decided to hold it and well no taking a bath here either.

July_4_17_028 copy

Let’s head upstairs…

Well yes, it was rough looking on the 1st floor.

New graffiti!!!!

Looking as creepy as the other front door. Even the graffiti is scared senseless.

To the left, the Box room.

To the right a gateway to Hell.

July_4_17_054 copy

Hmmmm, structural problems?

July_4_17_044 copy

Perhaps we’ll go back down?

July_4_17_058 copy

July_4_17_061 copy

Let’s go out back n see what’s there!

July_4_17_027 copy

No going this way…

July_4_17_030 copy

Okay it took a bit of hiking through a mini jungle but Jay and myself finally found the back porch. Not easy to say the least.

July_4_17_070 copy

The porch needs some DIY Love. Pretty sure that fuse boxes are not supposed to be used for nesting.

July_4_17_071 copy

I guess this is the door to the bathroom. I imagine whomever knocked the door down they really had to go, butt in the END were denied do to a blockage!

July_4_17_073 copy

There are more pics, but this is enough for now. I hope you enjoyed this revisit of a previous exploration.




When I was 9 I went to the movies with my cousins and watched Alien by Ridley Scott and loved it. Over the years I’ve seen all the movies in the Alien Franchise including Prometheus and the recent Alien Covenant. With the exception of Alien 3 I thought them all to be amazing. Last night I decided to do a small homage to Alien, I call it Alien Contagion. Enjoy.

A quick trip down Woodbury Rd

Old Woodbury Road held quite a few memories for me. My family would travel to Woodbury, TN every couple of weeks to see my Grandparents on my Dad’s side. It seemed like a long trip and one that to me went on forever. About two decades ago The State of Tennessee put in a new four lane highway from my town Murfreesboro to Woodbury and what was once a long ordeal became a pretty speedy one. Every once in a while I like to take a trip down Old Woodbury Road. There was a roadside restaurant called Pope Taylors, a BBQ place that from what my Dad told me was a bit of a trouble spot but made the best BBQ you ever wish you had. I hope you enjoy the photos.
