You may recall my post of Freaky Fanatics Jude and her sister Linda rocking this same shirt. They are long time friends of Jennifer and did me a favor when I threw an extra shirt in their order to mail out to her. A huge shout out to these amazing ladies for helping me get it to Jennifer safely which led to this amazing post that just added another art milestone to my year!
Happy February Boils and Ghouls! It’s time for my annual Women In Horror Month Slasher Sale announcement! As a female horror and fantasy artist, I whole heartedly always support this cause each year.
In celebration of all my fellow women who eat, breath, love and are inspired by the genre I am offering 12% off in my Etsy shop for the ENTIRE month of February. Just use coupon code WIHM2021 when you check out to see the discount slashed from your total!
Don’t forget to follow Women In Horror Month, support them and help spread the word about this killer cause that supports all women who make horror the powerful and amazing genre that it is!
A few weeks ago I finished up judging for the annual AxWound Film Festival and now I am mailing out up my donation package that will be used for the raffle prizes.
I decided my “Twisted” portrait of the Soska Sisters would be the ideal prize for anyone who supports us women in horror (with some added goodies of corpse). As an artist who loves supporting other artists, I am honored each year that I am asked to donate my time and work for this amazing cause.
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.
