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.

I have joined up with The Wishmasters Project for this week’s upcoming auction. They do auction-style fundraising on Instagram to help raise money for those in need. As someone who has had their own fair share of medical financial hardships, I know how hard it can be. That is why I am always trying to find ways I can use my art to give back the way others had helped me.
The current auction is to help Jessica Gimareli of GrimmArtworksDesigns who was in a terrible car accident with multiple life-threatening injuries. She is now wheelchair bound with permanent nerve damage and suffers from chronic pain. She is in need of a vehicle with a special accessible foot pedal device to assist her with driving. The goal of this auction is to help Jessica become mobile again.
The item I have donated is a 2 piece Chucky & Tiff Portrait Print Set. Winner of the auction will receive both a Friends Til The End print and a Barbie Eat Your Heart Out Print. Both will be 8.5″ x 11″ in size.

I absolutely love when people reach out to me to customize my Ghoulish Garments. I often get asked to add the title of the art piece to the design because people tend to like the catchy titles that I give to them.
I was contacted by Beckie to do just that with my Barbie Eat Your Heart Out (Jennifer Tilly/Tiffany) piece. She had previously ordered the print and came back and ordered the customized shirt. Both were for her awesome daughter, Sam (also an artist) who has now become a big fan of my work (honored). She recently sent me this photo of Sam and it made my day! Apparently, Sam wears it all the time! How cool is this? Complete with Tiff leather jacket and all……..
My customers are seriously the coolest people on Earth. See Sam along with all my other Freaky Fanatics on my official portfolio website! And don’t forget to send in your photos so you can be featured here with all the cool folks who support artists!
For those of you who love my “Barbie.. Eat Your Heart Out” portrait (of Jennifer Tilly/Tiffany) from Bride Of Chucky, wait until you see what I just got done checking off my art bucket list! Here’s a clue…..
That’s right. It’s Tiffany’s “other half” aka as Charles Lee Ray/The Lakeshore Strangler/Chucky played by Brad Dourif. I call this one “Friends Til The End”…..
I have been wanting to draw this one for a long time. Child’s Play had a big impact on me as a young horror fan. I remember it truly scaring me when I saw it for the first time (and to watch it now I can’t help but laugh thinking about it). But when Child’s Play came out I was also 7 or 8 years old. I just remember sinking into my seat trying not to look scared and watching it with one eye open and the other one partially closed. I had seen other horror films but none of the killers in those movies looked like a My Buddy doll ha ha. That was a whole new ball game for someone with a bedroom full of dolls and a puppet obsession.
When I drew this piece I kept both eyes open. I also kept all you Freaky Fanatics in mind. So for those of you that already own a print of my Tiffany portrait this piece was designed to complement that piece and you can now hang them together.
Purchase prints and ghoulish garments of this new piece in my Etsy and Amazon shops!
As the 9th annual Women in Horror Month comes to a close, I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the ghouls who have inspired my work.
To all of you that I have had the opportunity to meet and give my work to, thank you for being so grateful and for making every experience with you a memorable one. As we all know the horror genre may be the most hardcore genre but it’s filled with the nicest and most kick-ass people you will ever meet.
Thank you to my horror idols, Elvira Mistress of the Dark and the Soska Sisters who reposted about my work on their social media pages this month! This is exactly what makes you ghouls so wonderful. You give back to the fans who admire you so much!
Meet Kay! My newest Freaky Fanatic and fellow member of the Twisted Twins Army. This is a great shot she shared on Instagram showing off her new Ghoulish Garment featuring my Twisted portrait!
Get your hands on one of these shirts by shopping my Etsy or Amazon shops! You can also see this photo of Kay amongst all my other Freaky Fanatics in the featured slideshow on my portfolio website.
