Dog bites

Hands Off by David Hudnut

That's right, if you hop over to TODAY thru Sunday, February 17th, you can get a free dog bite!

Well, you can read about dog bites in my suspense story Hands Off.


Have you ever been casually walking through your own neighborhood, minding your own business, and a snarling dog comes out of nowhere? Doesn't that IRK you? It does me. I always wonder WHY the dog isn't where it belongs, behind a fence in someone's yard.

If this scenario gets under your hide like it does me, I bet you will LOVE Hands Off.

It's all about dog bites.

Hands Off is free on Kindle for 3 days.

Willie Washer's Local No.38

Willie Washer's Local No.38 by James Shipman

I recently designed and illustrated some cover art for my buddy author James Shipman. James wrote a great comedy fantasy novel titled Willie Washer's Local No.38. I've read the book, and it's a quick, fun read.

Rarely do I actually laugh out loud while reading books. I think the last book that grabbed my guts and pulled out the belly laugh's was Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson, and that was years ago. Surprise, surprise, James got me laughing good with Willie Washer's Local No.38. There's plenty of punnery and tasty one-liners throughout this book. It also skewers a quiverful of fantasy stereotypes with comedic panache, including one of my all-time favorites: the Gelatinous Cube. Oh so 2nd version D&D (I'm talking Blue-book D&D), or should I say OD&D.

Need I say more?

You can buy the physical book (with my cover art) at Amazon here:

If you want the Kindle version, you can find it here:

ZombApe!! The Zombie Gorilla

ZombApe! Th Zombie Gorilla
I've always thought that The Walking Dead TV show is lacking one thing: Zombie Gorillas. Don't you agree? I mean, the show is absolutely awesome. But wouldn't it be awesomer with zombie gorillas?

I'm sure you agree.

I've drawn a picture of my FAVORITE zombie Gorilla: ZombApe!! The Zombie Gorilla.

Another show I've been watching is American Horror Story. I thought it would be awesome if you combined The Walking Dead with American Horror Story: Asylum. Insane zombies. They're WORSE than regular zombies because they carry scalpels. Shiver!

Now, what you're all probably wondering is: Who would win in a fight?

ZombApe!! The Zombie Gorilla, or the insane Kid Zombie? 

I have my preferences, of course. We all know who the obvious winner would be. ROAR!!

For those of you who are interested in drawing esoterica, I illustrated these pix using using a Pentel 0.5 mechanical pencil, inked with COPIC 0.35 Multiliner SP, BS, and a COPIC Sketch 100 brush tip for fat lines. I colored with my favorite Tombow Dual Brush pens, as usual. 

Let me just say that when you want to render darker values with markers, it's a ton of work. But zombies are worth it.
