Rosemary's Home for Monstrous Children

I've done a poor job of updating, yet again, but have been keeping busy of late.

 I recently completed a new project that I had been whittling away at and self-published the new book, Rosemary's Home for Monstrous Children, in time for MOCCA and TCAF. The book is designed to mimic an antiquated Victorian Era catalogue of youngsters available for adoption. These youngsters all have similarities to several famous horror characters and monsters from classic cinema. I was able to complete 28 in all before I had to call it quits, but it was a fun project.
   The book is available for purchase at my new store here.

I've also updated my site recently with new work and new pages including one for the Lesser-Known Mammals book I created 2 years ago which is also available online at the link above.

Please check out my new site here if you haven't: cmduffy.com

Happy Spring!

Wolf Mask

I created this wolf mask back in October for Halloween times. It's more of a visor than a mask. It really took me out of my comfort zone and I was lost when I began cutting up the cardboard which composes the mask, but eventually I found my way and figured out the construction, so it was very fun- a puzzle to figure out.
   It's made of cardboard and hot glue and painted in acrylic.

Mad Scientists Galore!

I'm finally getting around to posting some photos from a mural I created in my pals' apartment last Winter. I was given carte blanche when it came to the design and subject of the mural. Knowing my friends were horror film enthusiasts ( as am I) I decided to go all out and create a Mad Doctor image incorporating a 'Frankenstein'-like scene with a multi-headed mad scientist creating the monster. The heads of the scientist are all depictions of mad scientists from a variety of films. Can you name them all?

I enjoyed layering a lot of details. The actual sockets and light switch in the wall were incorporated into the finished mural.
That's a take on Marty Feldman as the assistant with two other hunchbacks as his eyes, Lon Chaney's Quasimodo and Bela Lugosi's Igor from the Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Son of Frankenstein respectively. Also some graffiti that was drawn by the assistant in his off hours, getting very witty with the 'knobs' on the equipment.
