Wednesday Addams

My Halloween Fest Character Spotlight!

Wednesday Addams is a fictional character created by American cartoonist Charles Addams. The character has also appeared in television, film, and in video games, in both the live action and animated formats.

In Addams’ cartoons, which first appeared in The New Yorker, Wednesday and other members of the family had no names. When the characters were adapted to the 1964 television series, Charles Addams gave her the name “Wednesday”, based on the well-known nursery rhyme line, “Wednesday’s child is full of woe.” The idea for the name was supplied by the actress and poet Joan Blake, an acquaintance of Addams.[1] She is the sister of Pugsley Addams (and, in the movie Addams Family Values, also the sister of Pubert Addams), and she is the only daughter of Gomez and Morticia Addams. In earlier adaptations she is the younger sister of Pugsley, and in later adaptations she becomes the older one.

John Carpenter’s Vampires

“Ever since his parents’ murder by vampires, Jack Crow (James Woods) has had one purpose in life: putting stakes through bloodsuckers’ hearts. With his battle-hardened crew of vampire killers and the help of the Catholic Church, Crow roams the New Mexico desert looking for undead lairs to annihilate. But he meets his match when, at a roadside motel, he comes face to face with Jan Valek (Thomas Ian Griffith), a vampire kingpin possessed of incredible powers…”

John Carpenter’s Vampires is a 1998 American independent Neo-Western action horror film directed and scored by John Carpenter and starring James Woods. They adapted it from the novel Vampire by John Steakley.

I haven’t seen this movie in quite some time, but this is probably one of my favorite vampire movies. It’s grimy, it has good violence and the vampire hunting is interesting and a unique spin on how you can hunt vampires. When I get a chance, I’m going to read the book!

Check out the interview with Janeen G. on The Daily with Sly Stein through Anchor Podcast, also available through Spotify, Apple podcasts, Overcast, Googleplay, etc.

My name is Janeen. I am a self-published author, poet, illustrator & blogger. I was born and raised in Harlem, NY. I started writing & doing art in middle school, and it piqued my interest to write & publish my first book after having life-changing events in 2013-2014.

I am working with America Girl as a Doll Hair Stylist. I am a mother of four little ones and my fur baby ferret. I used to work in non-profit programs at the YMCA of Greater NY. I have always loved being creative and helping bring people joy and happiness with my art. I try to tell my life experience through my drawings and short stories to help others understand the feeling one goes through when they experience a certain situation.

I write to express my emotions and I draw or paint abstract illustrations to express my deepest Imagination. I love to write short stories of science fiction/horror, romance, erotica & fantasy. I also love to write poems about love, life & different emotions.

My Illustration works are whimsical with a dark and playful twist. Each piece tells a fantasy story using dark images and earnest feelings. I mainly work with oil & acrylic paint, along with watercolor paint & watercolor pencil. I also work with colored pencil markers, pencil sketching, ink pens, fabric & craft paper.

I am a huge horror movie buff and I am active in the Game of Thrones fandom. I also write fanfiction short stories. I am a huge nerd that loves to read mangas, comic books & other people’s fanfictions of original characters. I live in Orlando, FL with my kids, ferret, and husband of 13+ years.
