Winona Ryder at 49, aged to perfection.

This drawing is based on a photo that appeared in Porter magazine.

The Ace of Shadows

This drawing just developed organically. No part of it was planned or sketched out—I just made it up as I went along. That is unusual, at least, for me. As for the woman in the drawing—perhaps she is my muse. My muse carries a dagger. How cool is that?

Michael’s World

Michael Rowe is the author of the horror novels Enter, Night, Wild Fell, and October. I consider him to be a master of the Canadian Gothic, if there is such a creature. After reading his emotionally devastating Wild Fell, I felt inspired to do a drawing based on it, featuring the dark witch at story’s center, Rosa Blackmore. Michael asked to buy it, and a friendship was born.

Michael is also a journalist as well as the author of three non-fiction books. He is the winner of the Lambda Literary Award and was a finalist for the Shirley Jackson Award.

The Magic Fountain

This drawing was a gift for my cousin Shweta. There are also matted 8”x10” prints available for $10.00 plus $2.00 shipping (in the United States 🇺🇸). If you’d like one, email me at SacredGlyphs[at]


Don’t Let the Sun….

My battle with depression is my own private “Forever War,” and will likely be fought on the battlefield of my heart until the day I die. The title to Elton John’s famous song seemed an appropriate title for my drawing, as well.

Behind the Door by Mary SanGiovanni

My gifted friend and once-upon-a-time co-author, Mary SanGiovanni, has a brand new novel coming out August 28th. You can preorder Behind the Door for Kindle, or a variety of formats, and early buzz indicates that it is not to be missed. So please, check it out, along with the first Kathy Ryan novel, Chills.

Darkly Dreaming Mary

In America, we learn young to worship our celebrities. It’s not right, but it’s not entirely wrong, either. As such, I indulge my passion for drawing actresses. Here is one of the very best:

Please DO listen to Episode 166 of The Horror Show, where Mary SanGiovanni sits down with Gary Frank and myself for some good food and great conversation.
