Demons – 8.5″ x 11″ each Prismacolor Markers & Colored pencils and ink on Arches HP watercolor paper. Background – 8″ x 10″ Oil on gessoed watercolor paper

Years ago, at every single show that I would attend, there would ALWAYS be at least one person that either A) call my Demons “Apocalypse Ponies”  B) ask me if I’ve seen Robot Chicken or C) copied their idea (yes, I've seen Robot Chicken, NO MLD are not apocalypse ponies, NO I did not copy them, etc.). I fought this idea for a long time, but the Muses could not be silenced and I created MY OWN…..Demons of the Apocalypse!

My version consists of Conquest, War, Famine, Death AND Hades.   Do not ask me where Pestilence is.  Pestilence is NOT one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, but rather a pop culture reference.  I wanted to keep my version consistent with what was in the Bible.

In the Bible, it says, “I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him.“  I thought it would be funny as hell to have Hades be this tiny little Demon who’s running after the big boys like, C’mon guys…I wanna destroy stuff too!!
