Let’s Hear It For The Ghouls!

0

As the 9th annual Women in Horror Month comes to a close, I would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the ghouls who have inspired my work.

wihm9thankyou

To all of you that I have had the opportunity to meet and give my work to, thank you for being so grateful and for making every experience with you a memorable one. As we all know the horror genre may be the most hardcore genre but it’s filled with the nicest and most kick-ass people you will ever meet.

Stay Spooky!

Pam De Beaufort AKA Kristin Bauer in the flesh!

You may have gotten the hint from Friday’s post that I was preparing for a big day on Saturday!

I felt like a giddy fang banger in line at Wizard World Fan Fest yesterday. I had my hot pink and white zebra print gift bag all ready (thanks to my sister in law for the killer bag she wrapped my birthday present in last month). Inside was my original “Bite Me” portrait of Pam ready to hand over to the amazingly talented Kristin Bauer. As many of you know she is one of my favorite actresses and her portrayal of one of my favorite book characters has impressed me over and over again. First Pam and now my favorite fairy tale villain Maleficent. I just can’t get enough of her.

Everyone knows how beautiful Kristin Bauer is on the big screen but in person WOW! Seriously WOW! Then to top it off she was just incredibly sweet and grateful for the drawing I gave her. She thanked me and asked if I would like it in the photo op we were about to take. She then thanked me again before I walked away and gave me a hug. First Rose McGowan in November and now another girl crush hug from Kristin Bauer! All unexpected and as a thank yous for my art gifts. WIN!

“Bite Me” – Kristin Bauer/Pam portrait by Living Dead Girl Nicole

Since I knew I wouldn’t get a lot of time to talk to her during the photo op and couldn’t afford another ticket for the autograph line I decided to put a card in the bag telling her that the drawing was a token of my admiration and a thank you for inspiring me to use my talent to help others.

As you may already know from my past posts that I reached out to Kristin’s team a while back and a portion of the proceeds received from selling any of my Pam inspired creations in my Etsy shop (including prints of this portrait I just gifted to her) will go to The Amanda Foundation. One of Kristin’s favorite foundations to help. You can read more about it in my past post here.

Back Bone: It’s Giving Tuesday Let’s Give Back!

0

As you all know I love using my artistic talents to give back to causes that I am passionate about. There is a whole page dedicated to this on my website called Back Bone. Why do I call it that? Well one I love all things spooky (of course) and like fun creative ways to name the pages of my website. Most importantly I enjoy having other people’s backs.

I+ve+got+your+back+crazy+skeletons+have+a+weird+sense_72ed6d_5291171

One of the ways I  give “back” is by offering special, limited edition items in my Etsy shop. Customers have purchased such items and the proceeds have gone to the charity they were made for.

  • If you are looking for a wonderful gift idea that you can give to someone and tell them it helped someone else, these items are perfect.
  • If you want to spoil yourself without the guilt because it helped someone else, these items are perfect.
  • If you just want to help a great cause in a fun way, these items are perfect.

Well with today being “Giving Tuesday” I wanted to remind my followers that I do still have a few items left in my shop that can be purchased and a portion of your purchase will go to a great cause. So let’s GIVE BACK!

Back Bone: Kristin Bauer, the Amanda Foundation and my creations!

kristin-amandaWell this couldn’t come at better timing with the finale of True Blood and so much talk about helping others. I had reached out  to actress Kristin Bauer (who you all know I adore) a while back via her website in hopes to get in touch with her. I wanted to share the portrait I drew of her as Pam but also because I know she is highly active in fundraising efforts. I was hoping to team up with her the way I do with Linda Blair and her World Heart Foundation. If you are not aware, every time I sell a “Power Of Christ Compels You” art print or one of my dog inspired accessories a portion of the earnings goes to her foundation. So in my email to Kristin I told her I would like to do the same with my “Pam” True Blood items via my Etsy shop. Her people reached back out to me and told me that they loved the portrait and plan to share it with Kristin. They also think it’s wonderful that I would like to use my art to help a charity of her choice. She has chosen the Amanda Foundation out of Beverly Hills. A foundation she works closely with that rescues animals. I am very excited about her chose as you all know how much I love animals. So if you would like to help this cause and get something in return go to my Etsy Shop and purchase any of these Pam items and a portion of the sale will go to the Amanda Foundation! It’s that easy and that awesome! pam
