When Rod Ferrell was 16, (or 500 as he tells it. You see, he's a vampire) he took a little road trip to Florida with some friends and went to visit his ex girlfriend. He ended up brutally murdering the ex-girlfriend's parents. The teens then decided to go to New Orleans because that's where all vampires go, but only made it as far as Baton Rouge before being arrested for the murders and extradited back to Florida.
This unique artwork was done by Rod prior to his arrest. On the back Rod has written Nightmare the holder of the shadow orb, and signed it in full "By Rod Ferrell". It was obtained directly from his mother.
