Spitting Image: Mommy Weirdest

0

Time to check another vision off of my artist bucket list. This time it’s my all time 2 favorite TV Sitcom Moms.  They are beautiful, mysterious, sexy, cookey macabre moms that goth girls want to be like and goth boys wants to be with. They not only adorn the walls of our home but also adorn my arm as a part of my tattoo sleeve. And when they were not in character these 2 actresses were still drop dead GOREgeous!

That’s right I did a split face portrait of Yvonne DeCarlo as Lily Munster (The Munsters) and Carolyn Jones as Morticia Addams (The Addams Family).

I call this one “Mommy Weirdest”……

Spitting Image: Kindred Spirits

0

Christina Ricci Winona Ryder

So even though I have already drawn Winona Ryder (as Mina Harker) and Christina Ricci (as herself and in tribute to us sharing the same birthday) I still have had them on my art bucket list because they have portrayed so many of my favorite characters and are two of my favorite actresses. There are two characters though that stand out from the rest and I have related to both of them and have loved them since I was younger…. Lydia Deetz and Wednesday Addams.

My original plan was to draw two separate portraits but after searching for reference photos I kept finding the same photos and so many of them had already been drawn. Some multiple times. I really wanted to do something to challenge myself as well as create something unique. I decided that since both characters have very similar qualities and traits why not try to combine them into one of my split face portraits.

So I present to you you my latest piece called “Kindred Spirits”….

The entire time drawing it I knew I wanted to call it this because I feel like if these characters crossed paths they would be dressing up as homicidal maniacs together, rummaging the cemeteries, trying to join the dead in the nether world and capturing sheets with no feet on film . And on top of it I secretly wish I could be a part of it.

For those of you who also dreamt of the day these two would became friends and you could join them on their spooky adventures, I have prints and t-shirts of this piece now in my Etsy Shop! See more of my portrait work on the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!

Spitting Image: Penny Furter

Pretty excited to share my latest portrait with my followers. This one is in tribute to the very talented, Tim Curry. A mastermind actor who could bring creepiness, fun and just about any character to life on the big screen.

This one is another split face portrait (my specialty) that my fellow freaks will appreciate. It’s half Tim as Pennywise in Stephen King’s IT and the other half as him as Franken Furter in Rocky Horror picture show.

Now available as giclee prints and on t-shirts in my Etsy shop! See more of my portrait work on the Spitting Image page of my site!

Spitting Image: I Am Batman

3

071512batman-dngnkSo I have been wanting to do a split face Batman portrait for a long time. I always imagined that if I did draw it I would choose my 2 favorites……Michael Keaton and Adam West. Well the best opportunity presented itself to me and pushed me forward to get this portrait done and off my bucket list. That inspiration was my best friend Regina.

See Regina has been a friend of mine since freshman year of high school. I am the fairy goth mother (aka godmother) of her ava-7th-bday-2016-3daughter Ava Nicole (see that middle name.. its after me).  She was the maid of honor in my wedding.. although she didn’t end up making it down the aisle as she was in the hospital having Ava ha ha. Miles apart or time passes and we are still just as close as we ever were. We have been through so many fun times, got each other through the worse of times and have shared so many milestone moments.

Well, Regina is going through one of those milestone moments right now with the purchase of her very own home. She has been a renter for many years and can finally purchase a house. Knowing her for so long I know what a huge step this is for her and I am super proud of her. I decided to make her the most unique house warming gift I could think of. Seeing she is the biggest Batman fan I know and has been for as long as I have known her, I decided to push myself to do that Batman split portrait for her! All she knew was I was making her something for a housewarming gift but didn’t know of what. That was until I finished it and sent her a photo of it today.

Her reaction “OHHHHHH my god! I LOVE IT!”

I call it “I Am Batman” (as Regina and I both feel these 2 are the real Batmans ha ha). It was done in pencil, charcoal and pastel chalks.

I am looking forward to giving it to her in person this weekend! Prints and t-shirts will be available in my Etsy Shop for you fellow Batman geeks out there!

Spitting Image: Hell Has No Fury

4

Part of my Portrait Bucket List has always been to do something inspired by Hellraiser. As horror geeks, my husband and I sometimes have Hellraiser movie marathons and have even had the honor of meeting both both Doug Bradley and Ashley Laurence (both really incredible, down to earth people. If you get the chance to meet them at a con I highly recommend you don’t miss out on the opportunity!).

Despite being such a fan, the only piece of art inspired by the film that I have done was a custom Pinhead barrette that I made for a client. I will say though.. it came out pretty killer and the client loved it. To this day I still half tempted to make one for myself!

So needless to say, when I saw that Clive Barker himself was calling out to artists to submit their work for an upcoming Hellraiser Anthology book I jumped on it. It being a contest I wanted to do something different then the usual expected Pin Head portrait. I also wanted to incorporate my love of woman in horror and my signature split faces that I love to do. Now you would think I would’ve went with drawing Ashley as Kirsty but the thing is I have always wanted to draw a Cenobite. And what better Cenobite to draw then the Demon Princess turned Cenobite herself… Angelique (played by Valentina Vargas).

So as Pinhead would say, “I have such sights to show you”.

Here is my piece I call “Hell Has No Fury”…………

I have entered it into the contest and I will say, even if I don’t win anything I am just excited to know that  Clive Barker, king of dark art himself may actually see a piece of my work and that makes my creepy little heart heart skip a beat!

If you are a Hellraiser fan as well, you can purchase prints of this piece in my Etsy shop! And if you want to see more of my portrait work, head on over to the Spitting Image page of my portfolio site!
