Spitting Image: Twisted

3

Even though I created American Mary themed Dead Girl Decay Barrettes for the Soska Sisters, I wanted to pay tribute to them again through my portrait work. And what better time than now… Women In Horror Month! A cause both the Twisted Twins and myself support every year!

After meeting them in November and having the opportunity to finally talk to them in person, I gained an even higher level of respect for them (didn’t think that was possible with how much I already admired them). The fact that they remembered me from the barrettes I made for them and being able to have fun with them talking about my intestines and surgery just goes to show how incredible they are to the fans who support what they do. And just talking to them you could tell how sweet they are in general.

The Soska Sisters have done a lot of impressive work in their careers but to me, their true masterpiece is American Mary. Yes, some may think it’s because of my girl crush on Katharine Isabelle but honestly, I loved everything about this film. All the symbolism (seriously watch the commentary) and how they truly put their hearts and souls into this film is prevalent when you watch it. You know you are watching a film created by horror fans for horror fans.  I was so sick of all the unimaginative over CGI’d versions of old movies (grrr remakes) and I remember thinking the first time I watched it… “this is the breath of bloody fresh air the horror movie community has been craving”.

So with that, I decided to create a portrait that emulated everything I love about Jen and Sylvia Soska and the movie American Mary. I could not resist drawing them as their cameo appearance as the Demon Twins Of Berlin. I call this portrait Twisted…..

In May I had the honor of having Sheri Moon Zombie post my Tasty portrait on her website and social media pages. I decided to send her my latest 500 To 1 piece that I just finished last night. Woke up this morning to see she has featured it and even referred to me as one of her “fav fans” 🙂

Here are screen shots of it on her site and social media pages. Please click on them to be brought to the page and show my work as well as Sheri some love for sharing it with her followers.

Spitting Image: 500 to 1

6

rz31thisAs you all know from my many posts, that I am a big Rob and Sheri Moon Zombie fan. My husband and I were joined by my brother and 2 of our friends on Sept 1st for the special 1 night screening of Rob’s new movie 31. I was immediately inspired to draw Sheri’s character Charly. I was actually anxious to draw her prior to seeing the film but then after I saw it I was determined more then ever.

This is the 3rd portrait I have done of Sheri. I have had the honor of meeting her twice and giving my work to her one of those 2 times. Maybe one day I will run into her again and be able to give her this piece as well. She is not just beautiful and talented. She an overall really sweet person and is very loyal to her fans, making her that much more inspiring to me.

I call this new piece 500 to 1. Anyone else who has seen 31 understands my inspiration for the name of this piece. Anyone who hasn’t seen the movie yet will understand it once they do.

Spitting Image: I Had Wings Once

2

Well Freaky Fanatics I finished another portrait based off of my love of movies. Or more less my all time favorite fairy tale villain…. Maleficent. She has been my favorite fairy tale villain since I was a kid. Although my love of Kristin Bauer as Maleficent in Once Upon A Time is well known. Or my love of Kristin Bauer in general is well known…. I decided that since I already drew her as Pam and I have always wanted to show my appreciation for Angelina Jolie I would go a different route with my favorite villain portrait. I have always admired Angelina Jolie not only for her acting but for standing out as a unique individual. There is something I also share deeply with Angelina and that is loosing our mother’s to cancer and the void that we both feel. Her decision to get a masectomy is a very familiar thing to me. Not because I have had one but I have been asked by my doctors to decide if I should ever want to get tested to see if I carry the breast cancer gene. If so a masectomy would be the end result for me as well. I have chosen to not children and at this point have not made a definite decision if I will ever get tested, however I highly respect and look up to Angelina for her decision to do so for her children.

With that I call this one “I Had Wings Once”…..
