Spitting Image: Night On The Town

1

I just finished another split face portrait and just in the nick of time. See I have always wanted to draw Doug Jones but he has portrayed so many incredible characters I never could decide which one I wanted to draw. His ability to emerge himself into the makeup and transform himself into whatever character he plays not only blows my mind but is really inspiring. He is not your typical actor playing a role, he is the role.

When he appeared on the TV adaptation of What We Do In The Shadows as Baron Afanas I knew this was the character I wanted to create on paper. The Baron makes you fear him, love him. laugh with him and mourn for him. He also has a lot of wrinkles and I knew this would not just be a typical portrait but would give me a challenge. I also thought I had time to draw him and then I heard he was added as a guest to a convention we will be attending. I got so excited to meet him that of corpse my drawing hands went to work!

I completed the art piece just in time to gift it to him this weekend. I call it “Night On The Town”

Spitting Image: The Chosen One

kristy-swanson-buffyAnother portrait crossed off my art bucket list. This one is inspired by Kristy Swanson because I am a sucker for an original and well as we all know she was the original “Chosen One” as Buffy The Vampire Slayer in the 1992 film.

This one has been done as another one of my split face portraits. The left side representing Buffy’s everyday cheerleader self. The right side being her vampire ass-kicking self! Complete with her high school dance updo and black motorcycle jacket. Which ironically enough Kristy Swanson actually rides motorcycles.

It just got easier to do your holiday gift shopping for the unique women in your life! I just finished making 3 new Dead Girl Decay Barrettes that would make for wonderful gifts. All available now and ready to ship!

Perfect for the Victorian Horror Vamp:

This piece I had a hard time listing because plain and simple we all know what a big Bram Stoker’s Dracula fan I am. I was so tempted to keep it for myself ha ha. But I have decided to let someone else enjoy it. This was a vintage ivory cameo that I painted with enamel paints to look like Lucy Westenra. Complete with her flowing red hair,  seductive red dress and neck fang marks.

Perfect for the Pychobilly Halloween Queen:

With it’s black, green and purple colors, this piece will match the wardrobe of any psychobilly girl who loves all things creepy cute. It features a metal spider in the center whose body is made up of  green sparkly beads and rhinestones. The metal legs are wrapped in silver wire giving it that Tim Burton stripped look.

Perfect for the Vintage Colorful Free Bird:

If she is one with nature and likes things a little more bright and colorful, this piece is for her. The center features an antiqued brass butterfly accented in an array of sparkly colorful stones, ombre plum to olive green petals and blue feathers.

All of these are available in both my Etsy and Amazon shops. Want something custom made? Contact me ASAP to see if what you are requesting can be accomplished in time for the holidays. Everything is dependent on supplies and what is needed to make the item you want made.

Chicago Comicon

0

We went to Chicago Comicon again this year. However man this year it was a mad house. In a good way though. So many people, tons of great cosplay (as expected Deadpool and Harley Quinns everywhere ha ha) and overall just a place filled with our kind of people ha ha. Geeks know how to have a good time 😉

As with any con you have to have a game plan. Our game plan started with getting to see Deborah Ann Woll so I could give her my Invite Me In portrait. So we went to her table but they were not allowing you to even get in line with out an autograph pass for any celeb. Lame. I honestly just wanted to show her the portrait and talk to her about it. They were not allowing photos at the tables either. Something I hate because then you are forced to buy a photo op. I just love the time you get at the tables shooting the shit and getting photos with them in a more laid back un-rushed atmosphere Yah not at this con. So our game plan changed to lets go get a photo op ticket. Go look around and then come back during the photo op time slot.

We wanted to meet Bruce Campbell and have him sign Frank’s shot gun and get a photo with him. But when we got there he was done doing autographs was already at his VIP photo op and Q & A panels and wouldn’t be back again until later in the day. We decided we would wait it out for Bruce and try to catch him at a horror con that is less commercialized and more laid back.

We were first in line for the GA photo op line for Deborah and the VIP line went rather quickly. So before we knew it we were in the photo op area with the beautiful Deborah which made it all worth while. Despite the fact that they were rushing everyone she took the time to really look at the portrait and we didn’t end up getting as rushed as everyone else. She herself kept talking to us and made it an actual experience.  She was in awe that it was so detailed that I even captured all her “beauty marks” and told me she could not wait to share it with other fans on social media. She was an absolute doll and kept telling me how talented I was. She was even grateful that I had a gift bag for her to put it in so it was easier for her to take with her. She thanked me again before we left the area and was all smiles. So was I!

This is a scanned version of the photo op pic…

After all the excitement was over we were able to relax a bit more (not worrying about what time we had to be where) we were able to really take the whole show in. We walked all the exhibit halls and I think our favorite area was the artist alley. So many talented people. Took a lot of business cards home.

We usually only buy stuff at cons if they are pretty unique cause of the costs of things. I left with a Killer Klowns From Outer Space shirt and a  LeeLoo 5th Element shirt. Frank got a shirt with  Bigfoot riding on the back of the Lochness Monster and a Jimmie (Quentin Taratino) Pulp Fiction talking doll. Money well spent ha ha.

Overall we have a great time despite it being so structured but with a crowd that big I guess that is their answer to keeping things under control. I just think it takes away from the fan experience but it is what it is and every con is different. Deborah made it well worth the trip as well as all the wonderful people there keeping it entertaining. Bruce we will see you next time!! Bucket list promise! Maybe now I will have more time to make him a little something when he comes back to town as well.

Now that Deborah owns the original of  “Invite Me In” it is definitely not available for purchase. However, I do still have prints available in my Etsy Shop! So now you can own a piece of artwork that Deborah owns as well!
