When Barnabas met Velma

I don't know if I mentioned before, but I'll be getting married later in 2012. Rather than crank out a bland, forgettable "Save the Date" card (known by those in the wedding industrial complex as an "STD"), I decided to have a little fun with it. I asked George Caltsoudas, whose art you might have seen here, if he'd be interested in providing the art for the front. As you probably figured out, he agreed ... and the cards have gone over incredibly well with friends and family.

In case you're wondering, the characters depicted on the card are Barnabas Collins and Velma Dinkley, which were how my fiancee and I dressed for Halloween last year.

Now that (most of) the cards have been mailed, it's time to share the art with you good people. If you like it, drop Caltsoudas a line at his various websites and let him know what you think. Personally, I think he's an incredible artist, and I'm grateful that he could find the time for me.

Dynamite Comics is currently producing semi-monthly series based on Dark Shadows, and seriously needs to sign Caltsoudas to draw a story arc.

This was so fantastic that I'm saving it to make a scrapbook for myself...
