Backbones: Limited Edition Sid Haig Memorial Necklaces

4

I am a little late for Giving Tuesday, but I have had something in the works for months now that I can finally announce. My soul sister Suzie is in need of some financial help so I came up with an idea to use my art to help raise some money for her much needed medical/living expenses and the memorial she has been wanting to do for her departed husband and my dear friend Sid Haig.

After receiving Suzie’s blessing I am now able to offer Sid Haig Memorial Necklaces and I have decided to donate all proceeds from the sale of these necklaces to her.

These necklaces feature my Well Shit The Bed portrait that I drew and gifted to Sid for his birthday in 2017. The title of the art piece was inspired by an inside joke from the first time I met him back in 2004 and the portrait was a tribute to the beautiful friendship I was honored to have with him thereafter. The portrait represents him as himself on one side and as the horror villain icon Captain Spaulding on the other.

I had a limited run of the charms professionally printed and cut out of acrylic. They measure 2″ x 1.5″. I then added metal rings and put them on 20″ waxed faux leather cords (unisex) with lobster clasps and 2″ extender chain (for adjustable length). The backs of the charms are covered in a pure white that allows the portrait to pop through the layer of acrylic on top giving it dimension.

Each one comes in a purple organza bag making them perfect for gifting as well.

These wearable pieces of art are a unique way to support the legendary Sid Haig while also helping the love of his life in her time of need. They are now available with a limited quantity in my Etsy shop (I will continue to renew the listing until they sell out) and a handful will also be available to purchase in person at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL.

Don’t forget to check out my other art inspired fundraising efforts on the Backbones page of my official portfolio website and support some of the great causes and charities that are listed while you are there!

Stay Spooky & Magical,

As most of you know I had a lot success using GoFundMe during my intense medical procedures and surgery this past year. Seeing the success of the page, Frank’s cousin Cindee has set up a page for her sister Vicki. Vicki is battling cancer and is the one Frank’s band (Axe Man’s Bridge) ¬†played the Friday the 13th Benefit party for. Please go to this page and help by donating and/or spreading the word for Frank’s cousin!
