Since my first two limited edition corpse dolls have been adopted, it was well overdue that I make another one. Since two heads are better than one I decided to take it up a notch after finding some killer supplies that got my creative blood flowing. These ladies are waiting for their Mr. Right and it appears they have been waiting a long time.
This limited edition doll will be making its debut at the Hardcore Hearse Club show that I am vending on June 15th. So anyone that comes out to the show will get first dibs on buying it! No two dolls I make are every alike or duplicated. So if you get your hands on one, you are getting a one of a kind creation!
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!
So every time I hear the song “Call Me” by Blondie I immediately think of one of my favorite scenes in The Bride Of Chucky (which happens to be my favorite of all the Child’s Play movies).
Well coincidentally we watched The Curse Of Chucky a few weekends ago and without spoiling it for anyone there is a cameo by Jennifer Tilly towards the end of the movie that really just made me super giddy (and to me was the best part of the entire movie). I was then inspired to draw this piece I had been wanting to draw for quite some time.
I call it “Barbie… Eat Your Heart Out!”
Prints are available in my Etsy Shop. At this time the original is not for sale. I think I am going to hold on to it in hopes Jennifer Tilly graces her presence at one of our Chicago cons (a girl can dream). You can see more of my Spitting Image Portraits on my official portfolio website!
