I am a little late for Giving Tuesday, but I have had something in the works for months now that I can finally announce. My soul sister Suzie is in need of some financial help so I came up with an idea to use my art to help raise some money for her much needed medical/living expenses and the memorial she has been wanting to do for her departed husband and my dear friend Sid Haig.
After receiving Suzie’s blessing I am now able to offer Sid Haig Memorial Necklaces and I have decided to donate all proceeds from the sale of these necklaces to her.
These necklaces feature my Well Shit The Bed portrait that I drew and gifted to Sid for his birthday in 2017. The title of the art piece was inspired by an inside joke from the first time I met him back in 2004 and the portrait was a tribute to the beautiful friendship I was honored to have with him thereafter. The portrait represents him as himself on one side and as the horror villain icon Captain Spaulding on the other.
I had a limited run of the charms professionally printed and cut out of acrylic. They measure 2″ x 1.5″. I then added metal rings and put them on 20″ waxed faux leather cords (unisex) with lobster clasps and 2″ extender chain (for adjustable length). The backs of the charms are covered in a pure white that allows the portrait to pop through the layer of acrylic on top giving it dimension.
Each one comes in a purple organza bag making them perfect for gifting as well.
These wearable pieces of art are a unique way to support the legendary Sid Haig while also helping the love of his life in her time of need. They are now available with a limited quantity in my Etsy shop (I will continue to renew the listing until they sell out) and a handful will also be available to purchase in person at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL.
Don’t forget to check out my other art inspired fundraising efforts on the Backbones page of my official portfolio website and support some of the great causes and charities that are listed while you are there!
Here is the finished flier that I was commissioned to design for a very special benefit that my friend Regina is helping put together. After admiring please feel free to share it. They can use all the donations they can get for little Lexi.

Artist Living Dead Girl Nicole is temporarily unable to fill orders at this time. This bride of Frankenstein is having surgery #3 that requires more recovery time. Her shop will re-open soon allowing customers to purchase any pre-made/ready to ship items and to put down deposits to be the first on her list for custom orders that she will start once she has risen from her grave again.
Once her shop re-opens she encourages any pre-made ready to ship orders. These types of orders will be greatly appreciated as they will help with medical expenses while she is unable to work. Please do not be spooked and continue to place these types of orders. Just remember to be patient if there are any delays in shipping. Her Frankenstein will be helping her get things shipped out as quickly as possible.
Custom made to order pieces of art will not resume until she is fully recovered so please keep that in mind when contacting her with your requests or placing any orders for items that need customization or have to be made. This includes art prints as those are printed at the time they are ordered. She welcomes you to continue to send your special item requests and she will let you know approximately when she will be able to get them created and filled.
