Creature Feature: #BeetleHouse

2

I was on Instagram stalking the hash tag #BeetleHouse to try and live vicariously through all the people lucky enough to be on the West Coast enjoying Beetle House LA. I won’t lie the photos made me uber jealous ha ha. But, by doing so, I discovered this (public) photo and in the background you can see my “What Nightmares Are Made Of” original portrait on display. It made my creepy little heart skip a beat and I just had to share it with all my Freaky Fanatics and followers.

Look at all the other amazing pieces around it. It really makes me so thrilled that Beetle House worked with artists to use their original fan art for the decor of their place vs just buying random commercialized posters for the walls. I really think Tim Burton himself would also admire them for doing this.

Read more about my collaboration with Beetle House in my previous posts and don’t forget if you are in LA to pay them a visit and get a photo with my piece on display! Everyone that submits a photo gets a unique coupon code to be used in my Etsy Shop and will be featured here on my Eulogy Blog as well as in the Freaky Fanatics slideshow on my website!

Creature Feature: Beetle House LA

Could not be more excited or honored. Boxed up my ORIGINAL “What Nightmares Are Made Of” charcoal and pencil drawing to be shipped off to the new Beetle House Bar/Restaurant opening in Los Angeles next month. Their first location opened in New York and was such a success they are opening up a 2nd location. My piece will be displayed on the walls with other Tim Burton inspired art.

I was skeptical to send off my original at first because it’s a very meaningful piece and I worked really hard on it. However the more I thought about it the more I realized it needed to be a part of this amazing project instead of tucked away in my portfolio for no one to appreciate. Yes I was dreaming of one day giving it to Tim Burton himself. But let’s be honest.. the chances of that happening (even though I am a dreamer) are not very likely. The whole point of the piece was to express how much Tim Burton has inspired me as a artist and a person. Which is the exact vision behind Beetle House. I feel it will be at home there and who knows maybe some how Tim himself might finally get to see it.

Speaking of seeing it… if you live in the area or travel there make sure to visit Beetle House and snap a photo of yourself with the piece on display! I would love to collect photos of people enjoying the piece in person there. They are currently already taking reservations online!  I myself hope to one day travel there so I can see it on display and also take in how incredible Beetle House is. My only fear is I may never want to leave 😉

Love this piece? Then check out the prints and shirts available in my Etsy shop! want to see more of my portrait work? Then check out the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site.

Creature Feature: Mutter Museum

2

philly mutter (4)The Mutter Museum in Philly was mine and Frank’s #1 reason for wanting to go to Philly when we took our road trip with Mike and Heather back in March. Knowing how excited we were to go there Mike and Heather even paid for our admission as an added thank you for Frank driving the 11 hours to get us there (yes our friends rock!).

Part of the reason I was so intrigued by this place is because anatomy was my favorite subject in art school. Then you add on all my own “fun” ailments, my love for oddities and anything remotely macabre and that pretty much sums things up. Needless to say when we went there I was mesmerized by the place. We are both still so happy we got to experience it in person. Recently on an episode of Ozzy and Jack’s World Detour show we got to experience it all over again. As we were watching it we kept saying “ohhh we were there! We saw that!” ha ha.

I had been following the museum for many years before getting to go there and knew that every year they put up their Mutter Tree for Christmas. Often people send in ornaments to donate that go with the theme of the museum. Well this year I decided to donate one of my 2016 Santa Claws Christmas Ornaments to the Mutter Tree! Well go and behold I opened this post on Instagram this morning and could not be more thrilled!

So thrilled it arrived in one piece and is now a part of this incredible museum’s holiday tradition!  See other ways my art and handmade creations have been featured and displayed on my official portfolio website! Also if you like this ornament, there are other versions of it available in my Etsy shop. They are one of a kind so once they are gone they are gone! Happy Holidays everyone!

Stay Spooky!
