Death Count began as a way for me to pay tribute to Friday the 13th: the wonderful, awful film series that I love and that has been a part of my life for so long. Each drawing–pen and marker on trading cards–forced me to look more closely at these films I’ve seen oh so many times and to further explore my ongoing relationship with horror movies and cinematic violence. I’m still figuring out that last one, but so far I’ve learned that drawing cartoon blood sure is a lot of fun.
