Death Masque

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I don't think there was any specific inspiration for this. Maybe a little from the end of 'The Silver Metal Lover' or 'Don't Bite the Sun' by Tanith Lee. I'm determined to keep this in the sketchbook it's in, and my scanner doesn't agree with those too well, so this is a photo taken by an Intel camera. That's why it's not very white. Created with a black rollerball liquid ink pen on white paper. Original size 14 X 11 in.

Another vampire poem, this one more vague than most. It's about loneliness.

A Vampire Day-Talisman

Main influence for this poem was 'The Vampire Diaries' book quartet by L.J. Smith.


This is the closest thing to a truly horrific poem I've ever written. It's really weird and fractal.

The Quest

A l'il unicorn poem. Nuthin' special, but I do like the imagery.

Dream (Scarlet)

Vampire poem. My attempt at a more traditional poetry style.


This started out as a vampire poem and just ended up being plain surreal. It was my first published poem too!


Another poem from my invocation series. I don't like this as well as the other one though...
