“Your beloved Daydreams isn’t here right now. She appears to be…all tied up. I just may get cozy here. Yes, yes…I could get used to this.”
“When I came to my head was throbbing. Didn’t quite know what to make of it all. I was frightened—and cold. She was no longer here. Maybe that protection spell I cast on the gates finally took. I’m sure it won’t ward her off for long, though.”
Well my horror-loving lovelies,
Another #31Nightmares has come to a close.
We were not so sure about doing this whole thing again this year. There is a whole fresh hell of a lot going on behind the scenes. These circumstances have made it difficult on this trip. I apologize for not keeping up our tradition of ending this thing with a video. Some personal matters kept that footage from ever being shot & uploaded.
Despite those somber notes, we hope you had fun through each of the 31 days and nights. Will we do this again next year? Well, you’ve managed to talk me into it each year again since we started back in 2015. We shall just have to wait and see.
On behalf of Snapping Turtle Arts, I would like to thank Dean Kealy, Michael Patrick, and Bill Friday for joining us and lending their magnificent talents.
To the horror lovers here and overseas
We are so appreciative of all of you. Thank you for stopping in on each day! None of this would have gone down this year without your loving support and encouragement!
To my mentors
I saw you here lurking about. 😉 It means the world to me and my little family that some of you still care. We’ll try to put on a bigger show if we go at this thing again next year.
To our friends and family
Thank you for holding our hands when times get rough.
We love you ALL!

One of the lovely humans I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know these past few years of working in this industry is the beautiful and kind Chantal Laura Handley.
Chantal specializes in pastel art and horror icons. She sells her gorgeous artwork everywhere from Comic Con to RedBubble, and including her own website.
Here are some of my favorite pieces she’s created:
Chantal also has a countdown to Halloween of her own going on right now! Go check her out!

Since we started this thing back in 2015, horror movie soundtracks has been a favorite topic amongst our assortment of all things creepy.
Today, we’re highlighting one of my personal favorites in the genre, Master of Horror, Mr. John Carpenter. John is quite the composer and has done some of the most iconic themes for your favorite horror films.
You can find a sizable list for John Carpenter with some of his best titles on Spotify below
I highly recommend just letting them all shuffle play this time of year. 🙂

There’s not even much commentary I have to add to this one.
Simply admire the awesomeness that is this collaboration:
They don’t call him a “Master of Horror” for nothing. How cool is it to get NIN to revise one of your most iconic works?
