The most wonderful time of the year! CLICK THE PIC for the COFFIN HOP LIST!
What, pray tell, is a Coffin Hop? You may well ask…
So the Big To-Do starts in two weeks and I thought I’d give y’all a heads-up…
I want to throw an art show for the #CoffinHop
So get to work on your brightest, boldest and bad-assinest objet d’art and get ready to submit it to my #CoffinHop gallery right here on AxelHowerton.com, I will provide the email addy for submission on the 24th.
Any kind of art, sculpture, fingerpaint, oils, acrylics, peanut-butter jelly on toast… doesn’t matter. I’ll make a gallery for the pics of all of your masterpieces and we will take votes-by-comment. The winner gets an original Axel Howerton acrylic-on-canvass of themselves transformed into some horroriffic legend. Maybe you’re a Norman-in-Drag, a Frankenstein’s Manservant, or a hunchbacked Igor with a high heel fetish…
The winner of the art contest will also receive an autographed copy of DEATH BY DRIVE-IN (signed only by me, but whatchagonnado? Gorram expensive postal service, right?)
Also receiving an autographed copy of DBD, as well as a horde of other Axel Howerton books and swaggarillo will be the Best Hopper of the Week (visitor) on my site, as chosen by ME. There will also be a BEST IN HOP prize, including the 2013 Reaper Award for the Most Excellent Hopper (member). Previous winners include Red Tash and Julie Jansen.
