Who Else Wants A Strange, Spooky Picture Per Day From This Strange Artist?

I have been gotten back on Instagram…after a long reprieve….and let me tell you….it’s tough being out there….it’s as scary as a haunted house or a dark enchanted forest (you have to fight self-doubt, comparison, and other evil monsters). I returned so I could follow some spooky and inspirational artists (https://www.instagram.com/ghoulnextdoor/ , https://www.instagram.com/beeskneesindustries/ , https://www.instagram.com/spectralgardens/ , https://www.instagram.com/_virginia_mori_/ , https://www.instagram.com/weird_vintage_photos/) and to be able to send galleries and other art communities a social media account when I applied for opportunities (yep, I’m always trying to promote my artwork and get it out there so I can be found by the right audience—-an audience who appreciates and loves my spooky, strange art too).

I’ve been trying to make a lovely feed of strange and spooky art each day. I know that’s what I enjoy seeing in my feed. Who else wants that? If you do, take a chance on this strange artist and follow my strange feed. Below are examples of what you can expect from me…ghosts, bats, magic, moons and a very special cat named, Katarina…..sssshhhhh….don’t tell anyone….but she’s the inspiration for my next 11 art pieces…you might see some work in progress in my Instagram feed…just saying. Will I see you there?

Here's to Strong, Strange, Amazing Women Who Refuse to Fit It In and Defiantly Be Themselves!

It’s International Women’s Day so I had to just say hooray for all the strange, strong and awesome ladies in my life. This seems an appropriate time to name a few of them.

There’s my Canadian graffiti artist friend who has always been a champion for my art even when it sucked when I was starting out! There’s my 80 year old gal pal who still swims on a regular basis and tells me to never give up even when the going has been very tough. There’s my Hungarian friend who is just the sweetest, kindest animal loving gal I know. There’s my Dodger loving babe who creates amazing crochet jewelry like a lotus bracelet for me.

There are sooooo many more. Thank you, awesome ladies for being in my life! Hooray for you and hooray for all women everywhere. May you feel strong enough to be who you are in all your realness, in all your glory. I wish the same for myself.

Mysterious Masked Face Sculptures That Are Also Planters

I’ve been seeing the cutest planters in stores like ones with cat and bunny ears or even a funny, little face on one side. Of course, this makes for a most amusing place to pot your favorite house plant. Imagine the “green hair” growing in with the cat ears or the funny face. They made me smile, so I thought about buying them. Instead, I decided to create my own version. Being an artist of strange things, I thought I could make mine better, or at least, a little, more strange.

They ended up taking a lot more time than I thought they would…a total of about 1 month. Maybe, they were worth the effort. They certainly came out mysterious with those masks. And maybe, they are a little ghostly with so much white skin and clothing. Do you have any funny planters? Would you like a face to make your plant have more personality? Do you think these two planters are part of a Secret Society of Magical Creataures?

MOONS & NIGHT TIME MAGIC GIRLS FOR THE WIZARD WORLD COMIC CON (WIP PART I I)

Night Time Magic Girls Art on Desk-WIP.jpg

If you remember from last week, I was working on the moon drawing I’m calling, “What We Do When We’re Queens”. I have made a little progress on the lady’s dress and made her face a little more shadowy.

I’ll be sure to post more peeks as I make more progress.

Work in Progress of the 2018 Giant Robot's Post-It Artwork: Bunny Girl Drawings

I actually finished one of those little post-it artworks. It’s, of course, a Victorian Bunny Girl. I think she is going to love being in the Post-It art show at Giant Robot….oh the places, she’ll go….oh the things, she’ll see!

One little post-it Bunny Girl Drawing done. 8 more to go.

It's That Time of Year Again....Giant Robots's Annual Post-It Show (Work in Progress)

How long have I been in Giant Robot’s Annual Post-It Art Show? I don’t know. I really should take time and look back and count the many years. Nevertheless, come every November, it’s that time to make more tiny, post-it artworks again. As you can see below, I’m starting that work. My goal is to get 9 little drawings done before I must package them up and send to Los Angeles for the art show which starts in December. I’ll post more of the work in progress in the days to come.

Nine little post-it drawings that I will color and send to the Giant Robot’s annual Post-it Art Show in December.
