Tales from the Public Domain – A 2017 Anthology I drew a story for

As the title suggests, in 2017 I drew a story called “Missionary Soup” for Hellcat Press’s “Tales From the Public Domain“.

From their website:

Tales From the Public Domain – published in August, 2017, Tales From the Public Domain asked writers and artists to take their favorite public domain horror story and breathe demonic new life into it. It contains sixteen short scary stories based on the works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Kate Chopin, Mary Shelley, Ambrose Bierce, Algernon Blackwood, and others. It features writers and artists from around the world.

If you would like to purchase a copy of Tales From the Public Domain, visit the store at Hellcat Press.

I had a lot of fun drawing this story, but you can tell I was still trying to figure out what I was doing. There’s a lot of things that I would do completely different now if I was to draw it over again. Working with David was pretty great, too. He gave me a nice script with lots of room for interpretation. I’ve re-read the script just now and man, if I was to draw it today it would look completely different.

I actually took the pages out recently and started coloring them, for a possible new project. Wanna see?

I don’t know when, or if, the colors will be finished, but I go back to it sometimes and fiddle with it.

Anyway, if you want to get this book you can order it from the Hellcat Press website.

Back in 2017 I was part oe an Anthology that took public domain characters and stories and told something new with them. I teamed up with writer David Thomas (No, not the guy from Rocket From the Tombs, or the NFL dude, or the Wendy’s founder) to tell a story about Kelly The Conjure man…
