As many of you already know from the many posts I am a huge Sheri Moon Zombie fan.. well Sheri has recently revamped her Total Skull clothing site (I feature a banner to her site on the right side bar under links I recommend).. and featured some fan tattoos.. my Pin Up Girl version of Baby Firefly holding a knife that is on my leg (tattoo by Ken Culver) is one of them!!

Live It! Love It! Rock It!

Happy Women of Horror Month!

I was just visiting one of my favorite blogs.. Day of the Woman and its been posted on there that February is Women of Horror Recognition month!! I felt the need to spread the word because I think this idea is freaking fantastic and on top of it February is my birthday month …..so how appropriate is that?
Between my tattoo sleeved arm of pretty scary woman, the many portraits I have drawn, and the woman of horror I have met  this is definitely a month worth celebrating for me!!!

Girls & Corpses & Me! OH MY!

3

Any one that knows me knows that I adore Rob & Sheri Moon Zombie. Well my obsession led me to a kick ass magazine back in 2007 called Girls and Corpses Magazine. I had never heard of it until I heard word that Sheri was going to be their very 1st cover model for their 1st ever printed copy of the magazine (before that they were an online mag). So of course I ordered it. And figures me and my husband got a huge kick out of it. When friends stopped by they asked “What the hell is this?” and then couldn’t put it down.. saying “Only Nicole & Frank would have a coffee table magazine like this!” ha ha. My husband’s friends often teased him that one day he would see my face in their magazine.

Well that day has come.. well not the way they intended seeing me in the magazine ha ha.. but my Letter to the Deaditor complete with my photo with George Romero and the zombie head I made of and for George has been printed on page 6 of the Summer Volume 4 Issue!!! The people at the magazine are so awesome and were so excited to feature my letter and photo which really made me so happy!! I received a copy of the magazine today in the mail!! And could not have been more excited!!

If you like hot chics, horror movie icons, hilarious parody ads, comics, great art, and the undead…. GO Buy a copy!! The magazine is wonderfully insane! For real!

The Super Beast and His Dead Girl

8

Time for another flashback to explore some of my older art pieces..I decided since I am listening to Rob Zombie’s Hellbilly Deluxe 2 CD for the millionth time.. why not go that route for this one 🙂

I have a little bit of an obsession with Rob Zombie. Ha Ha. To me he is one of the most amazing artists, musicians, and film directors. I love everything about him including his wife ha ha. I have dressed up as her as Baby Firefly at conventions and Halloween (my husband Frank dressed as Dr Satan) and have dressed up as Living Dead Girl for Halloween as well (my husband dressed as Rob).

Me as Baby Firefly and my husband as Dr Satan along with some of our friends as the Firefly Family

I even have a tattoo of her as Baby Firefly on my leg that was featured on the Total Skull Website……

Alot of that HEALTHY obsession has been expressed in my artwork.I drew this portrait I call Super Beast of Rob about 7 years ago…

then I drew this one of Sheri as Baby Firefly a few years later. I call it “Tasty” inspired by her quote in House of 1000 Corpses “That’s not the only thing tasty in this house!”….

In 2006 I had the honor meeting the Zombies after one of Rob’s show…

Sheri was at the point where she was starting to promote her clothing line Total Skull that was in the process of being created and coming out soon.. when she saw me she recognized me and came straight up to me and I was in complete and under shock. She had saved me 2 Total Skull black tshirts for me and Frank!! Of all the Total Skull merch I own (and I have a ton) that plain black tee with the white Total Skull logo will always be my favorite because it came straight from Sheri.
me rocking the shirt Sheri gave me on the 1st official TS site.
 still am awe of it 4 years later. She was the sweetest woman ever and was exactly what I had hoped she would be.  After meeting her I was in heaven standing before the god that is Rob Zombie right in front of me. And I though my heart skipped a beat when he put his arm around me to take a photo with me. He was super cool and down to earth and absolutely amazing!!
Since then I drew another portrait that I call “The Zombies”. I wanted to draw them because I admire them so much. They are such a rocking couple who wouldn’t be inspired by them..??? So what better photo to draw then the one from my Rob Zombie calendar from the Living Dead Girl video!! 😉
I had the honor of giving the original drawing to Sheri back stage at one of Rob’s shows.. it was for a Total Skull Meet and Greet Contest.. My husband Frank was able to join me and it was such an amazing experience for the 2 of us.
 
She really loved the drawing and that made me feel awesome. She even sent me an email after the show..

One thing I can say about both Rob and Sheri is that they are genuinely wonderful in person and they truly appreciate their fans. And that has made my experience with them truly memorable. I will never forget the time I was lucky enough to be in their presence and express how much I admire them both.
Here are also 2 pumpkins I carved of Sheri 🙂 The Baby one I did I actually made the stencil and the Living Dead Girl one I did was a stencil I got off line.
