I am very excited to announce that I have partnered up with one of my favorite places to shop…. Closet Collectibles! This is the place my husband and I frequent during our treasure hunting adventures and on one of our recent visits they offered me a special place to display and sell my creations in their store. This gives you Freaky Fanatics a chance to now see and purchase my artwork up close and in person without waiting for me to vend my next event.

Closet Collectibles located at 1626 Wood Street, Crete IL 60417

Closet Collectibles is a family owned, small business located in Crete IL that focuses on everything you could imagine collecting and for all ages! This includes stuff for us big kids who still enjoy a memorable toy from their childhood or an action figure that was discontinued that you still can’t live without (yes I am speaking from experience). People travel from all over to come to their shop because their variety and staff are incredible and their inventory is always growing. Each time you visit there you are sure to see or find something new and never leave empty handed.

Here is a sneak peak of some of my items currently on display in their store….

Shopping with Closet Collectibles means you are supporting a small, family owned business that is not only passionate about what they do but also believes in this local artist. So the next time you plan your next treasure hunting adventure make sure to add Closet Collectibles to your list of stops and also follow them on Facebook for inventory updates every Wednesday!

Shop Update With Limited Edition Items!

0

I have been going through my pre-made inventory and gradually adding items to my Amazon Shop. These are items that I had made but did not make them available to purchase online. So if you have not visited my Amazon Shop lately, it’s definitely time to start browsing again!

I have added 4 Limited Edition FRAMED Prints. Including It’s Gonna Be That Kind Of Morning (Pee Wee) in this metal rhinestone frame and 3 from my blood splatter collection. All signed by me and only 1 of each available!

I have also decided to discount the remainder of my pre-made Dead Girl Decay Accessories so that you can stock up for Halloween or prepare for the upcoming gift giving season.

And while you are there, why not pick up one of my one of a kind undead creations! Perfect for Halloween or for those of you (like myself) who like to decorate their home “spooky” all year round!

Custom orders are available but please keep in mind that the prices of custom orders will vary from what you currently see in my shop due to the inventory discount.

Stay Spooky!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. So I am here to help you find the perfect gift for that boil or ghoul of your nightmares! Use coupon code BLOODYVALENTINE in my Etsy shop now through February 10th and receive 14% off your order!

All ready to ship items will ship out right away. However, it is highly suggested if you are interested in gifting a t-shirt that you order ASAP. Each one is made to order and takes approximately 2 weeks to be printed and shipped. Custom requests are welcome if you contact me now. This assures I have enough time to order any supplies I may need to make your vision come to life.

Don’t forget I also offer gift certificates. They are not eligible for the discount code but they make great gifts (especially for last-minute shoppers). When purchased from my shop a digital certificate will be emailed directly to you (so you can print it out) or it can be emailed directly to the recipient.

Stay Spooky!

Spitting Image: Wind Blows… Fire Burns… Water Falls

3

I remember the first time I saw Milla Jovovich. It was the early 90’s and I was watching Dazed and Confused. She played Pickford’s girlfriend… the quiet, artsy hippie chic who made the awesome Kiss props seen through out the film. michelleI also always thought it was interesting how she didn’t even need a speaking role and yet her character was so memorable she made the cover of the VHS and left an impression in our minds. It wasn’t long after that I had learned she had been model since she was a little girl. Go figure right? I mean.. why wouldn’t someone who looked like THAT not be a model!

tumblr_o2xe1gwjbi1u8n0xao1_500It was only a few years later that I got to see another side of her acting skills that would leave me in awe. The movie The Fifth Element came out and even though her speaking role was pretty much in a language all it’s own.. I still loved everything about it and her role as LeeLoo. She then eventually went on to be zombie ass kicking Alice in Resident Evil. A role I can now not imagine anyone else playing.

For many years now I have wanted to draw Milla as LeeLoo. There was just something about that character I loved most over all the others she has portrayed. The wait is now over and another portrait has been checked off my bucket list.

I call this one “Wind Blows… Fire Burns…Water Falls”

It was done in pencil, Prisma colored pencils and a touch of charcoal. If you are a SciFi, Milla or LeeLoo fan you can own a print of this piece! They are now available in my Etsy Shop. Visit the Spitting Image page of my portfolio website where you can see more portraits like this one, as well as examples of custom commission pieces I have done for clients.

Back Bone: Kristin Bauer, the Amanda Foundation and my creations!

kristin-amandaWell this couldn’t come at better timing with the finale of True Blood and so much talk about helping others. I had reached out  to actress Kristin Bauer (who you all know I adore) a while back via her website in hopes to get in touch with her. I wanted to share the portrait I drew of her as Pam but also because I know she is highly active in fundraising efforts. I was hoping to team up with her the way I do with Linda Blair and her World Heart Foundation. If you are not aware, every time I sell a “Power Of Christ Compels You” art print or one of my dog inspired accessories a portion of the earnings goes to her foundation. So in my email to Kristin I told her I would like to do the same with my “Pam” True Blood items via my Etsy shop. Her people reached back out to me and told me that they loved the portrait and plan to share it with Kristin. They also think it’s wonderful that I would like to use my art to help a charity of her choice. She has chosen the Amanda Foundation out of Beverly Hills. A foundation she works closely with that rescues animals. I am very excited about her chose as you all know how much I love animals. So if you would like to help this cause and get something in return go to my Etsy Shop and purchase any of these Pam items and a portion of the sale will go to the Amanda Foundation! It’s that easy and that awesome! pam
