Eartha Kitt as Catwoman Sketch


Eartha Kitt… jazz vocalist, dancer, actress, Catwoman…Wait, what?! Yep, she was Catwoman during the “Batman” television series final season. Remarkable in all her endeavors, I tried sketching her as that felonious feline female.

Frankenstein’s Monster Painting 2018

#GhoulMourningManiacs!! It’s Sssssaturday!!! Just finished my Frankenstein’s Monster (Boris Karloff) painting and I hope you enjoy it!! 16×20 acrylics. I wanted the colors to tell the story, rather than try chasing a hyper realistic style. I started the drawing and painting alternating between left and right handed.

This is based on the Monster’s rise from the burning windmill at the beginning of “Bride of Frankenstein.”

Ned Flanders Devil Costume 

I was a Groomsman for Rachel & Justin’s wedding. A Costume themed affair. So, I had to pull something together…
I chose Devil Ned Flanders. I bought a Flanders mask and made the horns, made the pitchfork, the leg pads, and modified a monkey sleeper onesie for the legs. Added a stuffed donut and modified a red lab coat. 
Here’s some shots of the project and the wedding day. Congrats to the happy couple!

Reb Brown: Captain America Painting 

I recently met Reb Brown, the actor that portrayed Captain America in the 1970’s made for TV movies. We were both guests at the Buffalo Fantasy and Magic Festival. I decided to attempt a watercolor painting of him as Cap, as soon as I learned we’d both be there.  

Reb is a terrific gentleman and very upbeat.   I have to say that looking at his IMDb list mirrors my viewing habits as a child of the 70’s and early 80’s! He was on every major show ranging from “Kolchak: The Night Stalker” to ” Happy Days” with stops everywhere in between. 

We introduced him to Tim Hortons coffee, which is a personal favorite of mine. I think it’s now his as well! 

Anyway, here’s my painting of him ( I wasn’t totally sure which version of the costume to use, but went with the second movie’s duds) as Captain America, which made him very happy. He exclaimed that it was “unbelievable ” and “bitchin’!” while bear hugging me! That made me feel like a nearly invincible super soilder!

Happy Valentine’s Day 2017!!

It’s Valentine’s Day! Who loves ya, Maniacs! Well… I do! ❤
Roses are red. Violets are rotted. Zombies eat Hippies, because the meat is “Potted!”

Roses are Red. Violets are Marillion. How many stitches cover Frankenstein ‘s Monster and his Bride? A Million! 

Roses are Red. Violets are Ochre. Batman’ s arch enemy is the Joker! 
Roses are Red. Violets have a hue. The Wolfman broke a fang while he gnawed instead of chewed.


Ohhhh… the Mummy can’t eat chocolate hearts, It’s really tricky.If he does, his band-aids get all gummy and sticky!!

BadMonsterJoke 2000!!!


It’s been a weird, sometimes gut wrenching and wonderful journey writing BadMonsterJokes. The first one was back in 2010. There are three books that collected the work along the way. “Monstermatt’s Bad Monster Jokes Vol.1,” illustrated by Kyle Kaczmarczyk. Then came a change of direction and publishers, with me wearing both the author and illustrator hats. My skull is a huge concrete block, so they can fit up there. Sheesh! Shortly after, came the award winning book, “Ha-Ha! Horror” and Rondo nominated book “Bride of Ha-Ha! Horror.” 
I was kidnapped, I mean,recruited, to tell the jokes on the 6FtPlus Horror podcast. That led to guest spots on other like minded shows. I’ve travelled to Toronto and treated (tortured, really) audiences to my jokes live and IN POISON! Buffalo, Tonawanda and other destinations got to be the yucky ones and hear the jokes, too. There’s more to come. Another book. A horror comedy cd. It ain’t over yet! 

So, without further delay, here are BadMonsterJokes 1998,1999, and 2000…

BadMonsterJoke 1998

Why would Christine make a great editor?

“AUTO Correct!!”
Hope you weren’t asleep at the wheel on that one!

BadMonsterJoke 1999

What do you call a leafy, green, Russian Triffid?

Well Maniacs, there it is 2000 and they’ll still BEHEADED your way. FANGS for being the best Maniacs any Man of a Thousand Bad Monster Jokes could AXE for!!
