It’s that time of year again. Halloween is over (waaah) and before you know it Christmas will be upon us. So this is just a friendly reminder that if you want to order any of my art shirts for gift giving to keep in mind turnaround times. Each shirt is custom made to order. They average 2 weeks to produce and get shipped out once the order is placed in my Etsy or Amazon shops.
Living Dead Girl Nicole’s art shirts are Sid Haig approved! 🙂
I am also already getting orders in for custom Dead Girl Decay barrettes and inquiries for other custom creations, so if you are looking for me to handcraft you something unique for a gift, make sure to reach out to me ASAP so we can discuss your vision. Most custom items need time for ordering supplies and then additional time to actually make your vision come to life.
Every once in a blue moon I watch a horror or fantasy movie and something just clicks with me artistically. I don’t want to just add the idea to my art bucket list but I want to pick up the pencil and bring my vision to life right away. This was one of those exceptions.
When it was announced that Damien Leone’s Terrifier was added to Netflix in September I didn’t waste a minute to add it to my queue. I had seen pictures and heard about the movie but had yet to actually watch it. So needless to say I was excited I was finally going to be able to.
My face should’ve been hurting from all the smiling I did as I watched David Howard Thornton bring life to this mute creepy clown on my screen. Disclaimer: I blame my weird obsession with the circus and my love for 80s slasher films. Normal people probably won’t have the same reaction to this film ha ha. After my husband and I watched the movie I could not stop thinking about how badly I loved David’s performance as Art The Clown and wanted to draw him. I had an idea in mind already but I had other art projects and commission pieces to wrap up. But as soon as I had free time I started on the Art piece (pun intended). Pretty ironic too that I finished it in October.
I call it #SELFIE and it was inspired by Art’s 2 fun looks in the movie….
As I was drawing the left side, I kept joking around with the tagline from Maybelline. I kept saying things to myself like “Maybe he’s born with it? Maybe he’s just really good at scalping and skinning crazy homeless woman and then wearing them” ha ha. Yah…I had a lot of fun with this one.
If you’re also a fan of David Howard Thronton as Art The Clown in Damien Leone’s Terrifier then you can pick up prints and shirts in my Etsy and Amazon shops. You can see Art and the rest of my portrait work on the Spitting Image page of my portfolio website.
I am excited to announce that I have added some undead interdimensional adventurers to my online store(s)!
That’s right, my Rick and Morty 2 Piece Zombie Head Set is now available for purchase. This is a Limited Edition set so get them before they are gone!
See more of my undead creations in the Adopt The Undead and Remains sections of my portfolio website.
I finished up a commission piece over the weekend. This was for a return client who wanted me to make them another mini zombie head prop. But this time they wanted an undead pirate for a decorative ghost pirate ship they are putting together. So if you’re wondering why all of the rum and brains are gone.. it’s probably because of the Captain of the Undead here…
When you do a commission piece and you send photos of the finished creation to the client there is always that nervousness of wither you captured what they had envisioned. So I was very happy when I got a response that said…”I knew it would be awesome whatever you came up with but this is so much better than I imagined. So cool. Thank you so much.”
See more of my horror props on the Adopt The Undead and Remains pages of my portfolio site. And don’t forget to contact me if you are looking for an artist to bring your vision to life.
How would you like to own your very own piece of the undead? How would like to display it on your wall like a hunting trophy?? Look no further!!! Smiley is officially up for adoption! But be warned he is always looking to have some FUN!
Smiley is the 4th piece from my Limited Edition, Zombie Faux Taxidermy Line (wall hangings) that I have made. The 1st one was a blonde pinup girl zombie, the 2nd was a long-haired ghoulish zombie and the 3rd was a mental patient zombie! Might I add that Mercy the Mental Patient Zombie is also still up for adoption here! Smiley or Mercy can be hung on your wall or they work well displayed on a plate stand (not included but can easily be found for cheap online)!
Purchase them in my Etsy or Amazon shops and stop by the Adopt The Undead page of my portfolio to see the other undead creations I have made.
Another well overdue portrait has been checked off my art bucket list. I have been a huge fan of Bill Moseley‘s ever since I was little and watched Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. The funny thing is I watched it with my family on Thanksgiving ha ha. And to top it off it was my Mom’s idea to rent it after someone tried to cut the turkey pretending to be Leatherface. I will never forget how funny it was when she spit her cheesecake out during a scene when Chop Top grossed her out. Sometimes I feel like I connect with horror movies because it brings me back to good memories spent with her. I miss cuddling with her on the couch and watching scary movies. Whenever she would get scared and jump she would then laugh about it afterward. She really introduced me to the genre and look at me now.
I have had the honor of meeting Bill numerous times. He is such a character even in person. The first time my husband and I met him was in 2004 when attending our first horror movie convention, Flashback Weekend. He put his arms around us and laughed his creepy laugh in our ears. The photo is pretty priceless and I swear I can hear that laugh every time I look at it. I remember thinking, “I wonder what my Mom would think of me actually getting to meet Chop Top Sawyer and hearing that creepy laugh!” She was probably watching over us and laughing right along with the three of us.
As avid convention goers we have crossed paths with Bill many times since. And each has been just as memorable. I remember one time we had him sign our big Devils Rejects mugshot poster. He was impressed that we were able to get all 3 of them to sign it. “That Sheri is a hard one to get!” he said. Then I told him about how Sheri got us backstage at one of Rob’s shows for a Total Skull Meet and Greet and that the poster actually survived in the mosh pit ha ha. He was even more impressed. That poster is now framed and hanging in our dining room. Another time I was working outside a Haunted House as a zombie girl promoting a low budget horror film. He was a guest there meeting fans that were waiting in line and asked to take a photo with us. So got to add that one to my collection as well.
Well now that you have read my fan history with Bill, here is the art piece I finished inspired by him. I call it “Chop Driftwood” (catchy name right?!)……
I think the name says it all. I did a split face portrait of him as half Chop Top from Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and half Otis Driftwood from House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. I would have loved to have been able to also incorporate Luigi Largo from Repo The Genetic Opera (as we all know how obsessed I am with that movie and have seen my art piece of Blind Mag) but I didn’t think it would be a good fit. Maybe a future piece? Either way, I am really happy with the way it came out and can’t wait to give it to him in November. And for his birthday week none the less!
If you are also a big fan of Bill and these characters, I have prints and custom made-to-order t-shirts available in both my Etsy and Amazon shops. Perfect for convention goers! Art prints make for unique items to have signed and the shirts are like nothing you will find anywhere. Stand out from the crowd!

Made a new “friend ’til the end” this weekend while attending the Flashback Weekend Horror Movie Convention. That is my fun way of saying how incredibly honored I am that I got to finally gift my original art piece to the one and only… Brad Dourif!!!!
I did my usual themed wrapping the night before the convention. This time I chose the colors that made me think of the Good Guys doll ……
When we got to the convention we immediately looked for his table and got in line. The convention was well organized so the line went really quick but still gave you enough time to conversate with him when it was your turn…..
When it was our turn and I gave the piece to him, he was so appreciative and kind. And when he saw it, he genuinely seemed blown away by it. Even the lady with him at his table kept saying how good it was. I told him how I made a matching one to of Tiffany and how I hope to one day give it to Jennifer Tilly and he thought that was really cool. When Frank and I were walking away we could even hear him discussing how impressive it was. Needless to say, I was a very giddy living dead girl this weekend! It was an honor to mark another talent that I admire off my art bucket list. Especially one so humble. I am so happy another one of my originals is now owned by another legend who inspired me.
For those of you who like this piece or want to own a print of an art piece that was inspired by and now owned by Brand Dourif, you can purchase one in either my Etsy or Amazon shops online.
