October is finally here and that, of course, means a month-long celebration of all things ghoulish and creepy. This also marks the fourth year I’ve participated in the Countdown to Halloween blogathon. If you’ve never visited any of the blogs participating in this amazing event, this is your chance to spend time with some endlessly creative folks that put in a lot of hard work to produce content just for this time of year.

As far as the The Catalogue of Curiosities is concerned, I’ll be posting new illustrations as well as “digging up” some of my favorite pieces from the last four years. Also be sure to check out my Tumblr page which will have Halloween/Horror themed content all month-long.

And as always, stay tuned for more to come!

All month-long illustrator Belle Dee has been hosting a tribute to The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra. The Lost Skeleton is a hilarious homage to B-movies and is directed by Larry Blamire. What sets it apart from the standard-fare genre spoof which has spawned some truly terrible (and not very funny) films in the last decade or so, is Blamire’s deep affection and admiration of the movies he’s lampooning. He gets every detail right, and none of it feels forced or disingenuous. There’s a reason films like The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961) and Astro-Zombies (1968) endure, and Blamire understands that reverence.

My contribution to the tribute is a poster that pays homage to the B-movie poster itself, especially those promotional campaigns that belonged to the master of brilliant self-promotion, director William Castle.

And be sure to check out the rest of Belle’s blog, Doo Wacka Doodles. Her Rondo-Award winning illustrations are a loving tribute to old horror movies and pulp magazines.
