Spitting Image: The Lovers. The Dreamers. And Me.

1

Anyone who knows me or even just follows my artistic journey knows how much Jim Henson has influenced and continues to inspire me. That is why I am very excited to finally share a new art piece that has been on my art bucket list for way too long.

I have always wanted to draw Jim Henson but was not sure how I would come up with what I considered a good enough tribute to someone that has brought so magic into my world. Then last September when his 85th Birthday was upon us, I got a vision of what I wanted to do and I started planning it out. Work, life and filling art orders got in the way but I continued to work on it slowly but surely. I am so happy I did not rush myself to complete it. I took my time because this piece is truly very special to me.

The vision I had for this piece was to pay tribute to the joy he brought into this world from the beginning of his career from the Sam and Friends days to his time on Sesame Street and the Muppet Show. And it was not just Jim’s look I wanted to show that had transitioned over the years but also wanted to incorporate the old and new looks of Kermit. From an abstract lizard made out of his Mother’s coat to the iconic frog we all love and recognize today.

I am so happy to finally be able to share this split face portrait done in pencil and chalk pastels that I call “The Lovers. The Dreamers. And Me.”

You can see this art piece and my other portrait drawings showcased on the Spitting Image page of my portfolio website.

For those who are interested in purchasing prints or wearing this art piece on a shirt, you can find them listed in my Etsy and Amazon shops. Prints will also be made available at at Closet Collectibles in Crete, IL as soon as I make my next art drop to replenish my store shelves.

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Remains : The Pick Of Destiny For My Destiny

0

I hand sculpted and hand painted the “Pick of Destiny” from Tenacious D for my husband Frank as a little surprise for Valentine’s Day this year.

To make it more custom I sculpted it so when you flip it over it looks as though it formed and took over one of the Axe Man’s Bridge picks we had made when his band was still together. I put a small necklace ring on the top incase he wants to hang or display it.

Needless to say he was very happy when I gifted to him and I was super excited to be able to try my hands at more sculpting.

See this creation and more of my rocking creations on the Remains page of my portfolio website!

Stay Spooky & Magical,
