Creature Feature: Stars Portraits Picks Howie as Portrait Of The Day

2

So thrilled to open my email and find out that my “Walk On the Wild Side” split face portrait of Howie Mandel and Maurice from Little Monsters was selected as Stars Portraits – Portrait of the Day!

I feel so blessed with all the love this art piece is receiving. This is the 4th portrait of mine to be featured and added to their Best Portraits Gallery on top of being selected as their Artist Of The Week this past January. Past art pieces of mine that were selected were my “20 Years Queer, “The Exorcist Was On” and “Maybe Today Satan“. All very different pieces that I am so grateful to have featured amongst so many incredibly talented portrait artists. Be sure to check them out as well as the other sites my work has been featured on. You can find most of them on the Creature Feature page of my portfolio website!

Restocked at Closet Collectibles with New Exclusive Item!

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

Living Dead Girl Nicole with her art displayed at Closet Collectibles in Crete Illinois

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,

Freaky Fanatics: Howie Mandel

0

So what started as me sharing my “Walk On The Wild Side” portrait with Howie Mandel turned into him featuring it on his Instagram account captioned “This fan art gets my golden buzzer”.

But if that is not exciting enough, I got contacted by Howie’s Manager/Producer Rich, who reached out to me to tell me how much Howie loved the art and helped me get the original sent out to him. Rich did not tell Howie it was coming and surprised him with it today! I received this picture that is now also posted on Howie’s Instagram account giving me a shoutout for gifting it to him

It feels great knowing the man who inspired my vision now has it in his hands (literally) and didn’t have to wait until our paths crossed to receive it (although I am still hopeful to meet him one day). I am so glad I took the risk to send it and trusted the divine that it would arrive safely. Feeling so many good vibes right now!

Check out Howie and others in the Freaky Fanatics slideshow on my official portfolio website!
