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!
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!
As you may recall (from my Days of The Dead Indy Recap) this Summer we finally got to me Felissa Rose who played Angela Baker in Sleepaway Camp. For those who are not familiar, it is an iconic 80’s Slasher Film and Angela herself is the reason it is so iconic. To learn more you have to watch it. Trust me no spoilers here. Go watch it.
Felissa is one of the sweetest scream queens we have had the honor of meeting at a con. If you are a fan of her and then meet her you love her that much more. Which is why she inspired my latest portrait. I call it “Happy Camper” and it’s a split face portrait of Felissa Rose/Angela Baker. Complete with Camp Arawak blue pastel background. Lucky for me I will see her next weekend and look forward to giving her the original.
For all you 80’s slasher film junkies….you can get this now as prints and t-shirts in both my Etsy and Amazon shops! To see more of portrait work visit the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!
I just want to take a moment to wish one of my favorite people a Happy Birthday!
Sid, Thank you for making all of these amazing memories possible for Frank and I! You are respected and loved beyond words. We wish you nothing but happiness today and always!
