My latest creation is a Spitting Image portrait I call “Invite Me In”. It is inspired by the scene in True Blood where Jessica Hambry “trick or treats” her way over to Jason’s house dressed as Red Riding Hood. In this scene you finally realize that even though she still has an innocence about her she isn’t the same baby vamp she was when she first hit our TV screens.
I used a combination of photo shoot photos of Deborah Ann Woll as well as screen shots from this particular scene to draw off of. I also found her “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” Vlog to be incredibly fun to watch and use for inspiration. This is the the end result that I hope to give to Deborah at Comicon. Which will make her the 3rd of the cast that I have had the honor to meet and give my work to (Pam/Kristin Bauer and Russel/Denis O’Hare being the other 2)
Are you a True Blood or Deborah fan? Prints are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop! See this portrait and many others on the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!
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.
Tonight is going to be EPIC!
Garbage is doing a 20 Years Queer Tour art contest. My portrait that I just completed was perfect for this contest however it did not fit the size requirements. Well I wasn’t about to not enter (especially after the killer show we experienced Saturday). So I did a cropped/edited version of the portrait just for the contest.
The deadline to enter was yesterday and my entry just posted today due to the site having technical difficulties. I am already way behind as far as getting my entry exposure for votes. Please, please, please go to this link and vote for my entry and then share this link all over your social media or anywhere on the internet that will help spread the word that I need more votes to give my piece a fighting chance. Don’t forget to email it to your contacts too!

A little comment love on my entry page won’t hurt either but is not mandatory.
Feel free to reblog this post as well!. The key is to vote and when sharing telling others to do the same! Anything will help!
Thank you my Freaky Fanatics! It’s people like you that take the minute out of your day to do something like this that support HUGE way! Love you all!
I leave you with some memorable photos from Saturday’s Garbage concert! A Sweetest Day indeed!
My latest portrait that I call “20 Years Queer” of the beautiful and very talented Shirley Manson of Garbage. The left side represents the 90′s and the right side represents now/20 years later. It is my tribute and way of celebrating the 20 Years Queer Tour and re-release of Deluxe.

#tbt to the times we met my idol…..
The woman I have wanted to be ever since I was a young batling. Other girls wanted to look like Barbie and when I saw my Dad’s cardboard cut out of Elvira I knew Barbie had it all wrong. I even attempted it for Halloween when I was about 8/9 years old….
The best part was telling Cassandra about this in person. How my Mom wouldn’t let me cut the top or bottom of the dress. Even back then I was obsessed with making sure my Halloween costumes were on point ha ha.
Happy Birthday Cassandra Peterson! Thank you for making these memorable moments a reality. Especially the day I gave you my Sinderella portrait. I will forever be grateful for your reaction that day when I gave it to you!
I am honored to have you tattoo’d on my arm as a part of my Pretty Scary sleeve! So many people see it and reminisce about how much they adore you. They tell me stories and talk about how stunning you are and how you always have been.
Thank you for inspiring woman that it’s sexy to be different!
