Creature Feature: Blick Wearable Art Contest

0

Blick  is running a Wearable Art Contest! Which as we know is right up my alley. The winner receives a nice art supply prize package that I can definitely use as well!

If you have a Facebook account please go here http://bit.ly/2xZwmjO and show my Hellraiser Cenobite Dead Girl Decay Barrette some entry love!

I chose this particular piece because it is still one of the funnest, wearable art commission pieces I have made to date. I am sure I will be one of the few whose entry comes from the dark side, but I hope to make Clive Barker and Doug Bradley proud! Plus, when haven’t my creations stood out from the norms ūüėČ

This is a commission piece I completed for a Hellraiser horror movie fan. The center symbolizes Doug Bradley as Pinhead. It was made from Fimo Clay and hand painted to give it depth. Small nails were used as “pins”. The flower petals were all artificial flowers in various shades of blues, black and greys that were alternated between pieces of of patent leather snakeskin fabric that I cut to look like petals as well. I took necklace chain to symbolize the torture chains used in the film and of course splattered it with red paint to give that blood effect that all horror fans love! The customer was beyond happy with the end result.

Stay Spooky!

Spitting Image: Hell Has No Fury

4

Part of my Portrait Bucket List has always been to do something inspired by Hellraiser. As horror geeks, my husband and I sometimes have Hellraiser movie marathons and have even had the honor of meeting both both Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence (both really incredible, down to earth people. If you get the chance to meet them at a con I highly recommend you don’t miss out on the opportunity!).

Despite being such a fan, the only piece of art inspired by the film that I have done was a custom Pinhead barrette that I made for a client. I will say though.. it came out pretty killer and the client loved it. To this day I still half tempted to make one for myself!

So needless to say, when I saw that Clive Barker himself was calling out to artists to submit their work for an upcoming Hellraiser Anthology book I jumped on it. It being a contest I wanted to do something different then the usual expected Pin Head portrait. I also wanted to incorporate my love of woman in horror and my signature split faces that I love to do. Now you would think I would’ve went with drawing Ashley as Kirsty but the thing is I have always wanted to draw a Cenobite. And what better Cenobite to draw then the Demon Princess turned Cenobite herself… Angelique (played by Valentina Vargas).

So as Pinhead would say, “I have such sights to show you”.

Here is my piece I call “Hell Has No Fury”…………

I have entered it into the contest and I will say, even if I don’t win anything I am just excited to know that ¬†Clive Barker, king of dark art himself may actually see a piece of my work and that makes my creepy little heart¬†heart skip a beat!

If you are a Hellraiser fan as well, you can purchase prints of this piece in my Etsy shop! And if you want to see more of my portrait work, head on over to the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!
