      "When I was first asked to design all three Spooky Empire Dean Guitars for 2012, I was stoked! As usual, the deadline was only a couple weeks away so I knew I had to enlist the help of two other great artists and friends.

     The guitar that I painted was inspired by Sid Haig's character "Captain Spaulding", in Rob Zombie's movies; "The Devil's Rejects" and "House of 1000 Corpses". I wanted to acheive the grungy, dirty, hand-made look and feel of Captain Spaulding's "Museum of Monsters and Madmen". I used an american themed paint scheme to match our character's attire and pictured his likeness at the top of the guitar. The captain laughs with that wicked smile of his while he flips the bird, reministent of the hold up scene at the museum. The bottom of the piece reads "Fried Chicken, Gasoline & Spooky Empire". The back of the Dean represents a desicrated american flag; painted upside down and backwards, with a pentagram in place of the fifty stars.

     I cant wait to get my hands on the next one! Petey... Stay in touch."

     "After finishing the Freddy Krueger Guitar from the 2010 Spooky Empire Event, I was more than ready to start on another one. So I was really excited when I actually got my hands on my own guitar.

    The chance to recreate the Spooky Empire Logo was immediately my first choice. I enjoy using bright colors with any work that I do, so I cartoonized Frankenstein with florescent paints that would allow him to glow in black light. With normal lighting, he looks like he is holding the guitar, but under black light he seems to float. On the back side of the guitar, I incorporated the back of Frankenstein's head as well as his hands.

    I was extremely surprised when the first place winners of the 2012 Spooky Empire Costume Contest, the group of 11 or so people dressed as Monster High chose my guitar as their prize! They had told me that they were going to display it in their school, to which I feel honored. I just wish I had found out which school… Oops. If anyone knows anything about these mysterious Monster High winners, I would love to get in touch with them.

And, of course I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for the chance to do another guitar!"
