Exhibitions and Appearances
I’ll be a VIP GoH (go figure!) at the Endless Night Vampire Ball this weekend in New Orleans, which also means that Awesomewife & I will be enjoying the city’s sights (and flavors) all weekend. If you see us, say hi!
I’ll be back in NOLA in a couple of weeks for the Legendary Haunt Tour, too. Woot!

I have artwork in two upcoming dark art gallery exhibits in Chicago, both group shows featuring far more talented and well-known artists than myself (you bet I feel lucky to have my work hanging in their company!).
This Saturday, October 27th, the annual Gallery Provocateur Halloween Dark Art Exhibition kicks off with an opening reception from 8:00 pm to midnight. Details and information at http://www.galleryprovocateur.org.
Then on Saturday, November 3rd, the Kosart Gallery will have its opening reception for the Second Annual Maleficium Dark Art Exhibition from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm. Details and information at http://www.kosartgallery.com.
Whether or not you dig my artwork, both of these exhibits are featuring some really impressive names and are definitely worth checking out!
I have several images (photos and artwork) in the new Goons & Greasepaint video from Midnight Syndicate, which features over 100 clowns images submitted from around the globe.
I am very pleased to announce that I’ll have artwork in the first ever Maleficium Dark Art Exhibition at the new Kosart Gallery, sponsored by Kosart Effects and The Horror Society. I am doubly pleased to be exhibiting with several other Chicago-based dark artists. Full details at http://www.kosartgallery.com/maleficium-dark-art-exhibition.html
My artwork is featured this month at Quantum Muse, the Science Fiction and Fantasy website.

This year’s Halloween event features legendary cartoonist Peter Bagge, (Hate Comics) GWAR frontman Dave Brockie, (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus) the haunting imagery of Patrick “Star 27″ Deignan, Toxictoons by Eric Pigors, anatomically eerie work by Scott Holloway, and more creepy art by: Drew Maillard, Joe Simko, GOON, Joanna Mulder, Edith Lebeau, Jeremy Hush, Matthew Kirscht, Paul Romano, Scarecrowoven, Chad Savage, Fernando Carpaneda, Eric Richardson, Christine Benjamin, Bob Scott, Martina Secondo Russo and Frank Russo; plus a Vintage Halloween installation by Kathleen Hayes.
I’ve participated in this annual Dark Art Show every year since it was at Echo Gallery, gotta be close to 10 years now. It’s always an excellent show, and I’m always pleased to be a part of it. This year it’s awesome to see my good friend Joseph Larkin not only participating, but gracing the ad above!

Horror is a popular genre because it helps us come to terms with the darker side of human nature. But the films represented in this art show were not always appreciated by the general public; most were made on a shoestring budget and some were even completely shunned by the mass media. However, thanks to their uniqueness and creativity, these B-Movies have developed a strong following in the outsider subculture.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Demons, Evil Dead, Frankenhooker, Street Trash, Deranged, Basket Case, Mother’s Day, Astrozombies, Hobo With A Shotgun, Dead Alive, Squirm, The Stuff, Maniac, Dr. Butcher… These are just some of the movies in the B/Underground Genre that inspire us to create our most horrific artworks.
Join MF Gallery and a slew of horror enthusiasts, as we pay tribute to our favorite movies through drawings, paintings, sculptures, and other works of art.
At the Opening Party on Saturday May 14th from 7 to 10pm, MF Gallery will be projecting a selection of our favorite Horror Movies of all time, accompanied by a Heavy Metal soundtrack. Refreshments will be served. Admission is Free and open to all ages.
“B-Horror” will be on view at MF Gallery until June 18, 2011, by appointment only. Contact Martina or Frank at (917)446-8681 or email: [email protected] to make an appointment to see the show. All of the art will also be available for viewing and purchasing online at: www.MFgallery.net
