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

0

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.

Stay Spooky & Magical!

Restocked at Closet Collectibles with New Exclusive Item!

This weekend I did my art drop off at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Betty my 50’s inspired undead doll and my Walk On The Wild Side portrait giclee print made their debut as well as another exclusive item I made just for their shoppers!

Exclusive as in this is another item that will not be available to purchase online but will only be available to buy in person at their store! A great way to get something unique, while shopping small, local and supporting an artist all at the same time.

This exclusive item is my Caged Cannibal Scary Fairies! They come freshly fed and ready for their new caretaker and can be hung up for display! A mix of my love for whimsy and horror all rolled into one creepy magical creation! You can see more photos on the Remains page of my portfolio website as well as a little video on Youtube.

While I was there I also re-stocked my sold out giclee art prints of my Spitting Image portraits and added some new one of a kind Dead Girl Decay barrettes to replace others that have sold and am already in the works of masterminding some more!

My husband Frank also shopped their wide range of horror figurines while I did my drop off. He picked up a They Live Rody Piper figure and the Flasher Gremlin figure we have been wanting to add to our collection.

In other words don’t waste your time at places like Spirit Halloween or big box stores for horror decor this spooky season. I for one witnessed Spirit Halloween’s selection and call it “same shit, different year”. Closet Collectibles offers way more unique items and supports their local artists! They also love to buy and trade for their non art related items. So if you are looking to get rid of something from your collection for something else this is the place is an all around win win! Not to mention Chris and Michelle are seriously the nicest folks you could do business with! Go show them some love and tell them Living Dead Girl Nicole sent ya!

Stay Spooky & Magical,

Boils and Ghouls…It’s Spooky Season! Which means.. now is the time to stock up on my creations at Closet Collectibles in Crete IL!

Why buy what everyone else has at the franchised stores when you can buy one-ok-a-kind handmade creations that nobody else has, all while supporting an artist and a small business that gives back to the community and supports local artists. My zombie friends pictured here say “it’s a no brainer!”
