Remains : The Pick Of Destiny For My Destiny

0

I hand sculpted and hand painted the “Pick of Destiny” from Tenacious D for my husband Frank as a little surprise for Valentine’s Day this year.

To make it more custom I sculpted it so when you flip it over it looks as though it formed and took over one of the Axe Man’s Bridge picks we had made when his band was still together. I put a small necklace ring on the top incase he wants to hang or display it.

Needless to say he was very happy when I gifted to him and I was super excited to be able to try my hands at more sculpting.

See this creation and more of my rocking creations on the Remains page of my portfolio website!

Spitting Image: “Life Is Trouble. Only Death Is Not.”

Opa! I just completed this custom portrait of Anthony Quinn that I was commissioned to do. It is inspired by his character Zorba The Greek and at the same time a memorial tribute (hence the pin on his jacket).

I truly love when someone presents their visions to me and at the same time trusts me to use my creativity to incorporate such ideas into the piece how I choose. It allows me to get my creative blood flowing and at the same time put a little piece of myself into the artwork.

Want to see more of my custom portrait work? Check out the Spitting Image Portrait section of my portfolio website. Have a vision you would like me to bring to life through my art? Contact me to discuss the details.

Spitting Image: I Bind You Nancy

1

I fell in love with Fairuza Balk in high school when I first saw the movie The Craft. Her portrayal of Nancy Downs is truly the reason I continue to love that movie even now in my 30’s. Watching Nancy on the screen I always wanted to be her friend and hang out with her despite the consequences. So in other words the moral of the movie went right out the window for me ha ha ha. I also would’ve loved to go shopping with her so I could own every piece of her wardrobe (well….besides the “I’m Flying” hospital gown and arm and leg restraints ha ha).

I have always been drawn (no pun intended) to Fairuza because she isn’t like all the other actresses out there. First off her name is incredibly cool, she is a unique beauty (my god..those eyes!) and she tends to always get the edgier roles that I like. On top of being a very talented actress she is also a musician and an artist as well!

Fairuza has been on my art bucket list for as long as I can remember. But I can finally cross her off now. I just finished a new split face portrait inspired by Fairuza as Nancy.

I present to you ” I Bind You Nancy”……….

It was done in pencil and charcoals. The right side is the witchy goth every day Nancy and the left side is the crazy ward “I’m flying” Nancy. I hope one day Fairuza decides to grace us fans with her presence here in Chicago. If she does I plan to give her the original. But for my fellow fans of Fairuza, Nancy and/or The Craft I have both prints and tshirts available in my Etsy shop!

Stay Spooky!
