Seasons Creepings

XmasCard_2009

The undead have as much use as the dead. My Dad was kind enough to mail me a cow’s skull that he came across in a field. At least that’s where he said he found it.

Often when I was younger I’d wander into the woods for hours and would eventually come upon a grisly horror of emaciated cow or horse parts. Your senses come alive when viewing death, alone, in the wilderness. Sometimes the animals would just die of old age or maybe from starvation as a woodchuck hole would break an animal’s leg and they would not be discovered until it was too late. Or coy dogs (which were wild feral animals that ran around in packs like coyotes or wolves tearing down slow prey) would cross their paths and instinctively rip them apart eating very little and leaving the rest for crows and flies.

So why do I bring all this up? I don’t know…but like I said the dead have their use either as a metaphor or as an adornment for creative endeavors. Such as…

Shane White spent much of his childhood in the Seaway Valley of Northern New York. He recounted much of this in his 2005 graphic novel, North Country. His passion since junior high school has always been comics and sequential art. With the constantly changing tide of the industry he decided to pursue other areas of art to gain a broader spectrum in which to facilitate his comic work. He's been an illustrator, graphic designer, concept artist and storyboard artist, for the film, video game and publishing industry since early 1990. Not until recently has he put all of this experience to use. Last year he co-created a hard science fiction series for Image Comics called, The Overman. He's worked on short stories in books such as Fear Agent, Hawaiian Dick, and Comic Book Tattoo. Shane White lives with his wife Jessica in the sometimes gray Shangri-La of the Northwest where he enjoys art, film and fine food.

  1. And who’s in that picture, Shane? You?!
    No way.
    In your, um, crazy young days?

  2. Yes, Terry…I’m afraid it is.

    As of this past Halloween. I grew the beard for three reasons…A.P.E., Halloween, and Christmas.

    And boy do I hate facial hair. It’s like a hedgehog taped to face.

  3. So… your new Year’s resolution will be to shave it off?
