Creature Feature: Rat Fink Madness Art Contest

0

Wish me luck! I just entered the Rat Fink Madness Art Contest over at Gnarly Magazine. Only 64 artists will be chosen from the entries they receive for the actual contest but all entries (including mine) are being posted on their site to help promote the artists who enter.

This piece in particular is very special to me. I drew it in 2014 for my Dad’s 60th Birthday. My Dad has always been inspired and a fan of Big Daddy Roth’s work and as you all know my Dad has always been my biggest artistic inspiration.

While at their site looking at the amazing entries, follow their social accounts and subscribe to their magazine. These guys are always doing rad stuff to help promote artists. And well I think that is pretty gnarly!

Stay Spooky & Different!

Creature Feature: Returning to Housewife of Horror

0

I am very excited to hear from horror host Housewife of Horror. This week they will be airing My Son The Vampire and she will also be wearing another one of my Dead Girl Decay barrettes on the show!

This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.

As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!

So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!

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!

Spitting Image: Night On The Town

1

I just finished another split face portrait and just in the nick of time. See I have always wanted to draw Doug Jones but he has portrayed so many incredible characters I never could decide which one I wanted to draw. His ability to emerge himself into the makeup and transform himself into whatever character he plays not only blows my mind but is really inspiring. He is not your typical actor playing a role, he is the role.

When he appeared on the TV adaptation of What We Do In The Shadows as Baron Afanas I knew this was the character I wanted to create on paper. The Baron makes you fear him, love him. laugh with him and mourn for him. He also has a lot of wrinkles and I knew this would not just be a typical portrait but would give me a challenge. I also thought I had time to draw him and then I heard he was added as a guest to a convention we will be attending. I got so excited to meet him that of corpse my drawing hands went to work!

I completed the art piece just in time to gift it to him this weekend. I call it “Night On The Town”

Drippings: Edward’s Wings

1

I am excited to finally share this custom piece I have been working on for a return customer. She provided the 20″ long wooden wings and told me she wanted Edward’s Scissorhands painted on them. I chose colors, snow accents and a pearlescent paint additive to give it the feel from the movie. I am happy to say the customer loved the vision I came up.

Adopt The Undead: Isn’t She.. Pretty (Deadly) In Pink

0

As promised I have completed another undead friend that will be joining my Two-Headed Bride and Evil Queen dolls at the upcoming Hardcore Hearse Club Show. This one, however, is quite the corpsified cutie in her pink floral dress, matching purse on gold chain, fancy sun hat, and pearl necklace.

You can’t help but smile looking at her. I also hope it makes you smile knowing you now have three chances of owning one of my limited edition dolls! Like the other two, this doll will first be available for purchase at my vending booth at the Hardcore Hearse Club show on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs! And like the others, she will not be duplicated making her a one-of-a-kind creepy creation! 

See more of my handmade undead friends on the Adopt The Undead section of my online portfolio. Spread the gore!

Stay Spooky!
