Spitting Image: Ketchup

0

originalLast year when I was vending at the Hardcore Hearse Club’s Annual Hearse Show a customer purchased a print of my “Naturally Born Bad” portrait of Juliette Lewis as Mallory Knox. They asked me if I had anything Pulp Fiction based. At the time I did not have anything but I told them I was a big fan of the film and had something visually in my mind and on my art bucket list.

My vision was focused on one of my favorite actresses, Uma Thurman (who I have drawn in the past as Poison Ivy) and her character Mia Wallace (who I had even dressed up as for Halloween a few years back). I call this new Spitting Image, split face portrait … “Ketchup” and it focuses on the 2 looks we see of Mia when she has that adrenaline-filled date night with Vincent Vega.

Portrait Decay STICKERS!

3

That’s right Freaky Fanatics, I teamed up with another printer and this one specializes in stickers. I had them send me some samples to see how my portraits would print out as stickers to make them available to those who have been requesting them. I was so impressed I placed an order for 60  3″ x 3″ (approx. size) stickers. There are only 10 of each of the below art pieces available in both my Etsy and Amazon shops! Get them before they are gone. Collect them all!

Spitting Image: It’s Too Late For Me

4

Another one marked off my “art bucket list”! This is a portrait I have been wanting to do for a few years now. Repo the Genetic Opera is one of my all time favorite movies. Really how can you go wrong introducing me to a hard rock/heavy metal, horror musical where Paris Hilton’s face falls off!

bill-moseley-3All kidding aside, the movie is a breath taking. It is artistic and visually beautiful as it is entertaining. It is nothing like anything you have ever watched or heard. In a world full of remakes it is a breath of fresh air.

We first heard about the movie at a horror con where Bill Moseley was there and was telling people about how he had just finished filming it and really got us pumped for it. We never heard much more about it until I came across it when it was available on DVD. Something told me to buy the movie even though I had never seen it. I have been completely hooked ever since the day I brought it home. Thank you “something”!

Frank and I introduced many of our friends, family and even co-workers to the film. We have even gone to live shadow cast performances of the movie as it has often been compared to being a modern day Rocky Horror. I found the live shadow cast to be an absolute blast! I even saved my little zydrate (blue glow stick) as a momento! Anytime someone stops to compliment me on the Geneco patch on my coat or my Blind Mag shirt I can’t help but turn into my giddy, horror geek self knowing that someone else out there knows about this masterpiece.

The character Blind Mag played by Sarah Brightman drew me in from the moment I first saw her on my screen. Not only is she absolutely beautiful and musically talented but her story is intriguing and really pulls you in.

I admit I had never heard of Sarah Brightman prior to Repo but at the same time after watching the movie I could not imagine anyone else playing her. That is just how breathtaking her performance as Blind Mag really is.

My portrait is my adaptation of Bling Mag before she goes on stage for her “final” performance and I call it’ “It’s Too Late For Me”

Spitting Image: Bloody BINGO!

3

So here it is my birthday and I am trying to come up with a creative way to gift my Genesis 4:7 portrait to Henry Rollins tonight.

My brother Mike said “Don’t look for one at the store. Make something. Make it about the movie!”

My husband Frank said “What if you incorporate the BINGO part of the movie and portrait

Thanks to them, a few BINGO cards, some red paint, glue, Modge Podge, tape and a black gift bag I now have the perfect way to gift it to him!

I keep referring to it as the Bloody BINGO bag ha ha ha. For those that don’t know 2-13-61 is not only Rollins’ birthday but also a trademark of sorts for him as well.

Make Our Nightmare Come True

0

Who wants to give my husband and I the ultimate gift for our birthdays this year!? Rob Zombie is offering 200 fans the opportunity to be in the brand new Rob Zombie movie. It costs $500 per person (airfare not included) and of course we don’t have that right now. Perfect timing!

RZ is shooting a new film and is inviting just 200 of the most hard core fans to get involved. You could be playing anything from a horrible monster to a sick robot or maybe just playing your crazy self…. that is if you’ve got what it takes. Time to show us your star potential… who knows? Perhaps this is you chance to be “discovered.” The movie shoots in LA, in Feb. Grab a spot, sign up and we’ll contact you directly to get your headshot and some other crucial info to get you cast in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

A nightmare come true  for the ultimate Rob Zombie fans…. who have money. I mean we are literally living in Rob Zombie memorabilia. My artist name was given to me because of my “healthy” Rob Zombie obsession.We have supported his work for years including Sheri’s clothing line. It’s a shame he can’t give a few of these away to some of the real hardcore fans that can’t afford it but have truly been supportive over the years.

Well if you are feeling generous you can donate to our tickets via PayPal by sending funds to nicole@artworkbylivingdeadgirlnicole.com. Hell it’s worth a shot! Spread the word! Help get us there!

Spitting Image: It’s Only Forever

6

Forever is exactly how long I have been obsessed with Jim Henson. When I was little my Dad would take me to the video store to rent a movie and I would always go and grab the same movie.. Labyrinth! I was obsessed and that obsession has never gotten old no matter how much older I have become. If you have read my artist bio on my website you probably got a fun little glimpse of my obsession there.

This portrait is long over due. I started it a while back but with all my health issues I have had set backs when it comes to drawing. I can throw together anything with a glue gun and whip up something in no time when it comes to crafts but when it comes to drawing I like to take my time and put all my energy into the piece. And with this being a tribute to my all time favorite movie I did not want to rush it. I had it partially done sitting on the back burner and told myself it’s time to finish it. For not picking up my pencils since last winter (when I did my Dad’s Big Daddy Roth – Rat Fink portrait for his birthday) I am really happy with the way this one came out even if it took me a while to finish it.

So with that I present to you “It’s Only Forever:….

Prints will be available in my Etsy shop. However with my upcoming ERCP procedure and surgery coming up custom orders will be delayed until I am able to process them. Prints do fall under custom orders because they are printed when they are ordered. Please keep that in mind when ordering.
