I always come back to werewolves. They have been a terror and a sensual draw since I was very young. With this piece I tried to explore what made a werewolf different than merely an aggressive canine. After some introspection and some mood swings thanks to the summer heat, I decided that there is something in werewolves that is, for lack of a better term, "crazy".
The aggression of a werewolf is at toxic levels. They are rabid. There is only one solution for them, only one avenue of egress, and that is bloody terrible violence. In this scenario, I am thinking of lycanthropy as a curse and the werewolf as a doomed soul. After their transformation and summary consumption of human flesh, the only succor they are able to find is in death. This is after all about the horror.
For 2015, I wanted to take the headers in a different direction than the work I had been producing. I chose to adopt a looser style. Although the 2014 pieces all had some underlying element of dark humor or social commentary, the 2015 headers have all moved back towards the essence of the work I want to create: horror.
