This wearable piece of art is a one-of-a-kind Lucy Westenra tribute barrette. The center is a rate vintage, porcelain cameo that I hand painted to resemble Lucy and then accented it with red and black flower petals and feathers to complete a victorian style pin-up look.
As a huge fan of Bram Stoker’s Dracula I was tempted to keep this barrette and not actually put it up in my shop. But seeing how perfect it looks on Housewife of Horror I am so glad that I did. Also just knowing it is owned by someone who appreciates it as much as I do makes me very happy. The fact she has chosen to wear my handmade creations on her show for a 2nd time is an honor!
So tune in THIS Wednesday, November 13th at 7pm CST at EerieLateNight.com or follow the directions on the Housewife of Horror website to access the programming though your Roku! Don’t forget to also follow the show on social media and leave them some love on there for being so supportive of my work. Share this post while you are at it to help them get more viewers this week and every week!
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”
If you too are a fan of Doug Jones and the Baron make sure to keep an eye out in my Amazon shop for prints and wearable art shirts! If you want to see more of my portrait work, be sure to visit the Spitting Image section of my portfolio site!
Another 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.
Are you a lover of originals and all things Buffy The Vampire Slayer too? Then make sure to grab one of my prints and/or t-shirts now available in my Amazon Shop!
Last month I announced the addition of my new Dead Girl Decay portrait necklaces. Well, I am happy to announce that I have added 11 more necklaces to this unique wearable art collection. And like the last set, there is currently only 1 of each available.
