Pickman's Apprentice
Date and time: 
Saturday, April 25, 2015 -
9:00pm to 11:00pm
Scheduled Location: 
Bellmont Foyer

Pickman's Apprentice is a quick drawing competition. Artists have 90 minutes in which to plan and execute an illustration based on a Lovecraftian beastie and a location. The audience will pick the winner and the pieces will be silent auctioned for charity.

Paul Komoda is a sculptor, illustrator, and  designer inspired by a lifelong obsession with monsters, dreams and nightmares, medical anomalies, and the weirder side of the zoological spectrum. Over the years he's delved into jewelry, action figures, album artwork, erotic/grotesque illustration, and anatomically inspired body art. In the early 2000s he worked for H.R. Giger, on several jewelry and sculpture projects. More recently, he's done work for Sideshow Collectibles, Darkhorse Comics, Amalgamated Dynamics Incorporated, and had sculpted the miniatures for the H.P.

When not occupied whispering to insects and cataloging esoteric ephemera, Nick Gucker is typically perched at his art table conjuring up nightmare visions and freakish delights out of ink, charcoal and acrylic media. His art has frequently appeared in the pages of Strange Aeons MagazineThe Magazine of Bizarro FictionDark Discoveries and online publications including theLovecraft eZine.
