31 Nightmares 2018: The 26th

We’ve had to make some changes to our slots due to cancellations and actors passing. With that said, we’ve added some fresh new content to our roster.

Featured here on CardCastles once before,

I’d like to reintroduce you to SunBunz.

I really enjoy her commentary at times. In this particular series SunBunz is playing Little Nightmares, a horror/adventure game and that’s what landed her here.

I’ve yet to play this game myself but I hear it’s right up my alley.

And, for your viewing pleasure here is Part 2:

Sleepy Sundays: Peach Clouds

Life has dealt an interesting last few weeks to say the least. When you’re used to having doctor’s appointments every weekend for about a month and a half, it can be difficult to adjust back to schedule. One of the things I’ve always liked with being in business for yourself and “being your own boss” so to speak, is–I get to make my own hours. However, I noticed in recent weeks I rarely take advantage of this occupation’s gem.

This Sunday, though, I’m taking full advantage of this perk, as I have a lot coming up here to plan for. We currently have a Back to School sale running all month of September that we’re thinking of extending until the end of November. Along with that, we’re mapping out the lineup for 31Nightmares this year in October, as well as some other events.

This wall art design was inspired by a scene I witnessed a few weeks ago upon leaving the hospital as August drew to a close.

Hope you are all having an amazing weekend! Much more to come.

Have a dreamy Sunday!

Sleepy Sundays: Brighter Day

A lot has changed in the past few months. Even more is still changing. We are no longer moving our place of residence and this office. (At least not any time in the near future.) A great deal has gone on behind the scenes.

One thing remains constant. My health is still considerably poor. We are doing our best to fix this. Although, I’m not too sure what’s in the cards for me.

We decided to renew CardCastles for another year anyway. Somehow, I still have this strange optimism despite having tea with the reaper lately. There’s so much more to tell you, but we’re going to have to save that for a Daydreams Diary. For now, let’s all just try to look towards brighter days together.

What gives you hope?

Have a peaceful Sunday

31 Nightmares 2017: The 14th

This artwork was meant to be shared later on in the #31Nightmares lineup, but due to some guest cancellations, changes made, & things currently going on, I shifted some of the slots with artwork in them to make up the next few days so we could keep up with a consistent theme each week this year.

This weekend going into next week, we’ll be diving into the surreal horror art genre, and I’ll be sharing some of my own work of the sort. This technique was something inspired by Wes Craven many years ago, and I’ve been doing it ever since. I record my dreams. Then sometimes, they become art.

This piece is no different. & The funny thing is I got to speak about it before we shared this piece with one of the members of our community. The character featured is based off of a nightmare I had of being burned as a witch out in the woods somewhere. It was a freakish nightmare that came out of nowhere. & It was interesting because my ancestors are not from the United States, where they actually burned women as witches in what is now considered the New England region of the northern east coast. Not too far from where I live today as I was born & raised in New Jersey, very close to/just outside of New York.
