Happy Holidays to my Freaky Fanatics! I have a treat for you. It is literally the Nightmare Before Christmas in my Amazon Shop today. I just added 3 new pre-made, ready to ship barrettes that are a must for any Tim Burton fan.
I worked hard this weekend to bring you 9 new, one of a kind items for purchase in my Etsy or Amazon shops. These are portrait necklaces handmade by yours cruelly…..
Each portrait was printed on plastic, hardened and then coated in resin to preserve the image. I wanted them to be unisex so I attached them each to ball chains. Since these are handmade, there is currently only 1 necklace of each piece available so get one while they last!
And stay tuned! More necklaces of my other portraits to come soon! So if there is a specific portrait you would like to see as a necklace that is not available yet, please comment on this blog with your feedback!
The beautiful Emily and my “What Nightmares Are Made Of” original Tim Burton and Jack Skellington art piece on display at Beetle House LA!
This picture actually brought a tear to my eye. So much pride but also knowing Emily went out of her way to take this photo means the world to me. Especially since I am not able to travel there to see it in person.
Don’t forget to take a photo with my art piece at Beetle House LA to be featured like Emily (also in my Freaky Fanatic slideshow) and get a special coupon code for anything in my Etsy shop!
I was on Instagram stalking the hash tag #BeetleHouse to try and live vicariously through all the people lucky enough to be on the West Coast enjoying Beetle House LA. I won’t lie the photos made me uber jealous ha ha. But, by doing so, I discovered some (public) photos that you can see my “What Nightmares Are Made Of” original portrait on display. They make my creepy little heart skip a beat so I had to share them with all my Freaky Fanatics and followers.
Look at all the other amazing pieces around it. It really makes me so thrilled that Beetle House worked with artists to use their original fan art for the decor of their place vs just buying random commercialized posters for the walls. I really think Tim Burton himself would also admire them for doing this.
The Beetle House LA location officially opened this weekend. So if you live or visit the West Coast please make sure to stop in there and support them for featuring my work and others in this creative collaboration. For those of you who may have just discovered my Eulogy Blog you can read more about the piece and it being chosen for this incredible project here. If you are looking for something fun to wear when you go there make sure to snatch up one of my t-shirts that feature the piece!
Don’t forget to snap a photo of yourself with my piece on display at Beetle House LA to be featured on my website! I have been told it’s hanging in the main dining area! Anyone that sends in a photo will get a special discount code off their next purchase for anything in my Etsy shop! If you fall in love with the piece while you are there don’t worry. I have prints for sale and you can use your coupon for that as well.
Could not be more excited or honored. Boxed up my ORIGINAL “What Nightmares Are Made Of” charcoal and pencil drawing to be shipped off to the new Beetle House Bar/Restaurant opening in Los Angeles next month. Their first location opened in New York and was such a success they are opening up a 2nd location. My piece will be displayed on the walls with other Tim Burton inspired art.
I was skeptical to send off my original at first because it’s a very meaningful piece and I worked really hard on it. However the more I thought about it the more I realized it needed to be a part of this amazing project instead of tucked away in my portfolio for no one to appreciate. Yes I was dreaming of one day giving it to Tim Burton himself. But let’s be honest.. the chances of that happening (even though I am a dreamer) are not very likely. The whole point of the piece was to express how much Tim Burton has inspired me as a artist and a person. Which is the exact vision behind Beetle House. I feel it will be at home there and who knows maybe some how Tim himself might finally get to see it.
Speaking of seeing it… if you live in the area or travel there make sure to visit Beetle House and snap a photo of yourself with the piece on display! I would love to collect photos of people enjoying the piece in person there. They are currently already taking reservations online! I myself hope to one day travel there so I can see it on display and also take in how incredible Beetle House is. My only fear is I may never want to leave 😉
