Sleepy Sundays: Where We Walk

Where We Walk © 2018 Snapping Turtle Arts | cardcastlesinthesky.com

I know there are people out there like me that avoid the internet on days like these for reasons that don’t need explanation. So, for that I’ll keep today’s Sleepy Sundays very simple.

For those of you out there today missing someone, I’m there with you.

Have a peaceful Sunday.

31 Nightmares 2017: The 28th

We’ve talked a lot about the importance of sound & music in horror when it comes to television, movies, and video games. The topic is sprinkled about throughout these years of doing #31Nightmares.

Along with soundtracks and sound effects, recently I came across a wonderfully haunting theme that belongs to a show.

We are nearing the end of our nightmarish journey. Still more to come. We hope you’ve enjoyed this October with us here at cardcastlesinthesky.com

31 Nightmares 2017: The 21st

This weekend we are wrapping up our journey into the surreal. We’ve traveled along many roads of tribute, and the unexplored. We’ve nodded towards the greats while highlighting the up-&-comers. This coming week we’ll be celebrating the last bits of our event in a sort of horror stew. We look forward to doing it all with you.

31 Nightmares 2017: The 5th

Clipped
Of all the terrifying movies and artwork I’ve seen about dolls, and more specifically, disfigured dolls, it’s no wonder I’ve had nightmares about them.

If you’ve been reading at CardCastles for a while, then you’ve no doubt heard about my fear of dolls.

Late last year after a few nights of flu-like symptoms and feeling wiped out, my body finally gave out. I slept for 10 hours, out cold. I woke up sweating like a tupperware container. My feverish brain thought it would be funny to turn me into one of those things in my sleep. I created sketches for those mental images not long after.

The result is this dead-looking cutie up there. (I know, I know. Throw me a bone.)
