This peanut is invested with the power of the almighty!

It's said that the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. But that time he turned Jerry Lacy into a peanut was also kind of impressive.

Steve Casino has added to his DARK SHADOWS gallery of peanut art with this interpretation of the Rev. Trask. You'll recall his Barnabas Collins creation from a few months back, and I guess he decided every anti-hero needed a villain.

I'm still struggling to find a way to describe Casino's work. When I use the term "peanut art" it's because I don't know what else to call it. He's got one hell of a skill set (no pun intended) because his work incorporates painting, sculpture and who knows what else. Don't let the "peanut" element of these sculptures fool you: This is not the work of a flea market "d├ęcoupage" hobbyist.
