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.

Stay Spooky!

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!

Spitting Image: “Invite Me In”

1

tumblr_m46jidend31qaq0qfMy latest creation is a Spitting Image portrait I call “Invite Me In”. It is inspired by the scene in True Blood where Jessica Hambry “trick or treats” her way over to Jason’s house dressed as Red Riding Hood. In this scene you finally realize that even though she still has an innocence about her she isn’t the same baby vamp she was when she first hit our TV screens.

I used a combination of photo shoot photos of Deborah Ann Woll as well as screen shots from this particular scene to draw off of. I also found her “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” Vlog to be incredibly fun to watch and use for inspiration. This is the the end result that I hope to give to Deborah at Comicon. Which will make her the 3rd of the cast that I have had the honor to meet and give my work to (Pam/Kristin Bauer and Russel/Denis O’Hare being the other 2)

Back Bone: It’s Giving Tuesday Let’s Give Back!

0

As you all know I love using my artistic talents to give back to causes that I am passionate about. There is a whole page dedicated to this on my website called Back Bone. Why do I call it that? Well one I love all things spooky (of course) and like fun creative ways to name the pages of my website. Most importantly I enjoy having other people’s backs.

I+ve+got+your+back+crazy+skeletons+have+a+weird+sense_72ed6d_5291171

One of the ways I  give “back” is by offering special, limited edition items in my Etsy shop. Customers have purchased such items and the proceeds have gone to the charity they were made for.

  • If you are looking for a wonderful gift idea that you can give to someone and tell them it helped someone else, these items are perfect.
  • If you want to spoil yourself without the guilt because it helped someone else, these items are perfect.
  • If you just want to help a great cause in a fun way, these items are perfect.

Well with today being “Giving Tuesday” I wanted to remind my followers that I do still have a few items left in my shop that can be purchased and a portion of your purchase will go to a great cause. So let’s GIVE BACK!
