The Devil Queen

How my wife and I sold our souls to the Queen Anne Victorian we tried to save.

Name:
Location: Crow Mountain, Arkansas, United States

Synopsis: This is a cautionary tale. A seriously disturbed couple find the charming, old ruin of a Queen Anne Victorian in Russellville, Arkansas, and buy it for $1.00. They tore the roof off, cut it in half, and had it moved to some land they owned sixteen miles away because they didn't know any better. Since then, they have hired and fired contractors, had all of their tools stolen, re-wired, re-plumbed, insulated, and essentially rebuilt the entire house. Their only problem is that after four years it still isn't finished. Now they are tired, broke, and wonder what in the hell it is they've done to themselves. And, it's haunted.

Back By Popular Demand

I was going to stop subjecting you to my art, but, since you asked for them, here they are.

The first one is "Voodoo Contracting." The small print at the top reads, “When good manners and patience don’t work, VOODOO CONTRACTING!” I originally envisioned this one as a T-shirt design and even had one made. Unfortunately, the purple background (the area that I applied with a Primacolor marker, dumb idea) came out brown-purple instead of true purple. It was a little disappointing. If I had Photoshop and knew how to use the program, I could probably fix it. Maybe.


This one is “Sacrifice.” I think it speaks for itself. Click on the picture for a larger version if you can’t tell what they are doing.
And, this one is “There is No Place Like Home.” Once again, I think that says it all.

Yeah! Hurray! I love these!

Sure, bartering is always a option. But I'd rather pay you for a piece of your work...you deserve it. It's AWESOME!
