Got a beautiful photo today of my best friend turned happy home owner and happy portrait gift receiver.

This is Regina holding up the “I Am Batman” split face portrait I drew for her house warming gift.

Spitting Image: Limited Edition Framed Prints

1

When I vended the Hardcore Hearse Club show in June I decided to display and sell my portrait prints framed. However I wanted to be more creative about it. I didn’t want to just put them in frames. I wanted to add my artistic flare to them. I also wanted to make them limited edition so that they were one of a kind to whomever bought them.

So what I did is I purchased unique frames from thrift stores and completely up cycled them by doing what I do best….. I painted, decorated, etc each one of them to coincide with the theme of the artwork.

Since they were such a hit I have decided to continue doing them. I have also decided that when I am not vending they will now be available in my Etsy Shop.

If you go to the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site you can see the ones that I have made so far.

If you go to the Spitting Image section of my Etsy Shop you will see which pieces are currently available for purchase!

Please note that the Exorcist/Regan piece is currently listed under the Back Bone section because I always donate to the Linda Blair WorldHeart Foundation whenever I sell a piece of my work that is inspired by her.

Also the Lily Munster piece is still currently available. Please contact me directly if you are interested in this piece.

Etsy rules advise against posting Munsters related items on their site. Despite the fact that my piece is one of a kind and not a direct replica I still do not risk it out of respect of their wishes. So if you are interested in this specific piece (or just a print of it) I can work with you via PayPal. Please note I have gotten a lot of inquiries both in person and online for the framed version. So if you want it I would definitely act fast and contact me!

Remember all of these pieces are limited edition because the frames are up cycled and no 2 will ever be the same! If you are interested in a print that does not currently have a custom up cycled frame option contact me and we can work together to make one custom for you!

Stay Spooky!

Remains: 10 Year Anniversary Gift

0

Over the weekend we drove out to visit our friends Mike and Heather. We joined them along with their other friends and family to celebrate their milestone 10 year wedding anniversary.

Heather’s Instagram post showing all of us at their wedding in 2006 and then all of us celebrating their anniversary now in 2016

 

My husband and I decided to make them a gift. I got to thinking of various ideas and then it hit me.. our recent Philly trip with them!!  Then I thought how perfect it would be to make one of our wood wall hangings of the Philly Love statue. Not only because it says Love on it but also because we shared a pretty funny adventure trying to see the real thing (due to road construction and a man dressed like Jesus preaching and praying with people around it). Needless to say we did a lot of drive by photo taking of the statue and never actually got to see it up close.

So Frank and I got to work. He got the wood, I drew it out, he used the saw to cut it out, he sanded it and then I painted it. We decided to use a gloss top coat to seal it because the real statue is actually very reflective and shiny.

They loved the gift. Heather opened it and immediately started to crack up. She totally “got it”. She even started planning out where she wants to hang it in the house.

It was a great time with great friends. So happy to have them in our lives. Here is to many more years of friendship as we all grow old together.

Spitting Image: Big Daddy Roth and Rat Fink

2

Ok… super excited about this post. I just gave my Dad a portrait I did for him of Big Daddy Roth holding Rat Fink for his 60th birthday. Since it was a milestone birthday I wanted to give him something special. I know that my Dad has always admired the works of Big Daddy Roth and it has been an inspiration to him in his own artwork.

Seeing my Dad has always inspired my art and has taught me so much, I came up with the idea of drawing this for him. I also just love the Fink philosophy of “Fink Differently” and wanted to add that in. As you all know I am definitely “different” not only in my art but my entire life style ha ha.

Here is the finished piece…

and of course some great shots my husband took of us tonight when we gave it to him at dinner..

Mummy and Me: April and Baby Girl Adams

4

Over the weekend I had the joy of going to a baby shower for my friend April. I decided to make her a set of Mommy and Baby matching barrettes as her gift. I used her wedding colors and her love for things retro as my inspiration. It inspired me to start a new line of Dead Girl Decay that I am going to call Mummy and Me. Each purchase will be a set that includes a barrette for Mom and a barrette for the little one 🙂

Here is what I created and gave to her at the shower…..

And here are some photos I took (and edited) at the shower of her opening them…
