The Cradle of the Worm novel free beta release on HorrorFam

A towering giant consisting of a man and woman fused back to back like the original conception of Ha-Adam, humankind. Set against a glowing forest hanging inverted from an enormous swollen moon.

This past Monday I finally finished my first horror fantasy novel, The Cradle of the Worm, and released the beta version on HorrorFam.com on their Freebies page.

The entire text of the novel, as well as the first audio chapter, are all available there. My friends and I will continue to release free audio chapters of the text on podbean and youtube. Here are some scenes from the novel if you’d like a quick glimpse of what you’ll be getting. Continue reading

October 2019 Sketch Challenge: The Magnus Archives

Every October I like to do some sort of drawing challenge. 2013 and 2014 were digital art challenges. 2015 through 2019 have been ink challenges. Often I like to have a theme, as in 2018 when I did all SCP Foundation related drawings. This year I did a Magnus Archives drawing challenge!

I didn’t get 31 drawings done, I the only years I managed to do so were 2013, 2014 and 2018. But I still had a lot of fun doing it. Here are the drawings I got done, captioned with the (awesome!!) Magnus Archives episodes they are based on. Continue reading

Illustration: Autumn 2015 Lovecraft eZine

Yeah I was a bit late in promoting this one yah! BUT, always good to direct more folks to these great guys. Especially the amazing KC Grifant, whose story “Better Halves” still creeps me out months after reading it for the first time.

Check out Grifant’s amazing story and others in The Lovecraft eZine, and below here’s a full shot of my illustration and a “big eyed” variant I did during the revision process!

Oh, happiness! New shirts up at Threaded Canvas and an announcement

Art shirts by Heather Landry featuring horror art about Lilith, Adam, Cthulhu, Darkness by Byron and a faceless crowd.

Yeah, I just happened to see that my new shirts are up at Threaded Canvas!!

(I’ve been kinda busy)

Anyway, I’m especially happy to see my Darkness linoleum block print on there because I will be launching into a NEW series about the poem after finishing up some jobs…AND IT IS NOW A CONFIRMED SOLO EXHIBITION FOR SUMMER-FALL 2015 WITH A VENUE. I’m going all out on this one. For those of you who haven’t read my earlier posts, I did a series of traditional prints to illustrate Byron’s poem back in 2001.

Now, 14 years later, I want to show myself and one very special fan how far I’ve come.
