Dear Fans

Dear Fans and Friends,

I apologize for our silence for the past few months. Last November Bernie began falling again, and having obvious problems with perception. He had to undergo yet another brain surgery to relieve bleeding, and then spend several weeks undergoing in-patient rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it appears that he has lasting damage: he has extremely limited function on his left side, and is unable to walk or reliably use his left hand, among other limitations.

We have had to come to the sad conclusion that he is now effectively retired: he will produce no new art, and he is unable to attend conventions. Should this situation change I will happily announce it here.

He can still sign his name (in fact he was signing Kickstarter prints in the hospital!), and is otherwise pretty healthy and has good cognition. We expect to continue releasing signed prints, and offering occasional pieces of art for sale from the collection that remains. We both thank all of you for your continuing support and good wishes!

All our best,
Liz and Bernie Wrightson

Big Finish to a Crazy Year!

This Spring, Bernie finished his chemotherapy, and embarked on one of his most ambitious convention schedules ever! It was wonderful to see him regaining his strength, and getting out to meet his fans.

While he still hasn’t been able to return to drawing, we do hold out hope. ¬†Sadly, with the return of his tumor and subsequent second surgery, we had to cut his appearance schedule for 2016 short. We hope he’ll be back on the road next year!

In the meantime, a project that has been long in the works has just gone “live:” Bernie’s first Kickstarter! You can find out all about it below:

Thank, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN MONTH!!
