Saturday, March 27, 2010 The Shadow Farm II: Dave the Dead

One last artery gush for Dave the Dead, before I tourniquet this series.
Sure, check out his sculptures and props; but do yourself a favor and read some of his short stories as well. Like everything else, they are twitchy, in a casually desperate voice.
I recommend warming up with I died yesterday.

I can't close a Dave post without featuring an image of one of his old-school characters: Frau Trauermarsch

Thursday, March 25, 2010 The Shadow Farm

My vow to quietly resent truly talented people has been suspended for this post.
Not very long ago I stumbled upon and was blown away by several yard haunt pieces made by Dave the Dead. While most of us were making props Dave was making art. Since then he has developed the Shadow Farm blog and Etsy shop to showcase a greater variety of his work.

Dave is featuring these beautiful Easter Eggs for his Shadow Farm Easter 2010 Giveaway.

Treat yourself to original art in the spirit of the haunt and visit his blog and shop.

Saturday, March 20, 2010 Revenge of Old House at Kents Store

Fate once again brought us to the Old House at Kents Store. Sadly it remains for sale and its condition worsens. As I walked behind the kitchen (a detached building to the rear of the house) I heard something rustling inside. As if the place wasn't scary enough, a large vulture jumped from inside and perched in the second floor window! I couldn't get a picture before he made his way into a tree.
If you look closely you can see his silhouette crouched in the middle of the photo.

Some shots of a few of the other outbuildings.
