As you all know I adore Rose McGowan. I have been wanting to do a portrait of her for quite some time now. I got some added motivation when I found out I might have an opportunity to finally meet her! I knew that if I finally had that chance that I could not show up empty handed and wanted to give her a gift of my work. I like to give back to the people I admire, who inspire me and I find to be unique and amazingly talented! So I have been working hard on a Cherry Darling inspired portrait and I finally finished it all last night.
I present to you… It’s Go Go Not Cry Cry!
Now to make my dream come true and hand this bad boy over to her in person this weekend! I am STOKED!!!!!!!

Well 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!
Stay Spooky and Supportive!

Forever is exactly how long I have been obsessed with Jim Henson. When I was little my Dad would take me to the video store to rent a movie and I would always go and grab the same movie.. Labyrinth! I was obsessed and that obsession has never gotten old no matter how much older I have become. If you have read my artist bio on my website you probably got a fun little glimpse of my obsession there.
This portrait is long over due. I started it a while back but with all my health issues I have had set backs when it comes to drawing. I can throw together anything with a glue gun and whip up something in no time when it comes to crafts but when it comes to drawing I like to take my time and put all my energy into the piece. And with this being a tribute to my all time favorite movie I did not want to rush it. I had it partially done sitting on the back burner and told myself it’s time to finish it. For not picking up my pencils since last winter (when I did my Dad’s Big Daddy Roth – Rat Fink portrait for his birthday) I am really happy with the way this one came out even if it took me a while to finish it.
So with that I present to you “It’s Only Forever:….
Prints will be available in my Etsy shop. However with my upcoming ERCP procedure and surgery coming up custom orders will be delayed until I am able to process them. Prints do fall under custom orders because they are printed when they are ordered. Please keep that in mind when ordering.
