I have always been fascinated with the great Harry Houdini. In fact, he is the main subject of my latest painting, engaged in a daring escape. This has got to be one of the most complex paintings I’ve ever created, with multiple layers of textures and shadows, and took me several weeks to complete. (And just about maxed out the memory of my old computer!!). To my knowledge, Houdini never attempted this particular escape, but I’m betting he would have tried it - if it existed. -Wayne Reinagel
Wayne also penned a "Gothic Horror Steampunk novel," Modern Marvels - Viktoriana, that sees Houdini joining Mary Shelley, Jules Verne, and a fellowship of well-known historical figures to take down some vampires. You can purchase that on Amazon.com.
