We just got back from our maiden voyage to Draculacon in Windber, PA to partake both in the inaugural festivities and to see my old college friend Blair Murphy after 20 odd years. We have both gotten older and a little more filled out but have maintained all the fun and creative elements I remember so well from 1987.
Blair used my "Children of the Night" image for event T-shirt (they came out great) and the two day event had a interesting line up of well know and versatile acts including "The Cadillac Creeps", Phat Man Dee , Rosemary Ellen Guiley and Bauhaus bassist David J.
The residents of the small town of Windber were more than gracious and we actually met some incredibly cool people at the hotel - particularly Caddilac Creep bassist Joel Mercado and his girlfriend (who did a stunning job of bringing my poster character to life in the photo above) as well as the silent film expert who spoke before the showing of Nosferatu, Bill Eggert.
It was really a great time.
