Time to refocus...

I have spent the past week showing the Artist's Shuffle in LA, updating my Etsty Store, posting the official videos of the Parh To Extinction and decorating for halloween. 

The showing of the Artist's Shuffle was an amazing experience. The venue Echo Country Outpost was the perfect place to show such an eclectic collection. Three bands played live music till about 11:30 and they brought in very mellow, appreciative crowds that responded well to the art. I saw a few of the participating artists, Luka Fisher, Anguiano Art and Girl With A Hook. The biggest surprise of the evening was seeing Tangled Threads! It just happened to be my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a better day.

I am slowly updating my Etsy Store to reflect my new work as well as updated photos of my past work. The first set from my Creature Series are available now too. Take a look and see if you like something. The holidays are fast approaching, make sure to give me enough time for custom orders.

I have asked Art Farm Pictures to work their magic editing the video of me creating the Path To Extinction. Until then, I have made a small video of just the final painting revolving. This looks slightly like an animation and is one of the most amazing things I have created. Please take a look.

Halloween got in my blood this season! I am so excited and decorating my yard with my imagination. So far we have a 10 foot spider web covered in blood and baby shoes, a 14 foot grimreaper, 10 ghosts hanging from our 20 foot tree, a hanging man silhouette from our top window, a haunted shack and lots of spider lighting! Creepy and fun! 

Happy Halloween!

The Unfortunate Zookwash Has Arrived!

I am very exited to announce my latest published art book, The Unfortunate Zookwash! This Dr Seuss inspired book was finished in the beginning of March and is now available in print. Dr. Seuss's Beginner Book Collection by Dr Seuss [Boxed Set] (Google Affiliate Ad)

Please visit my website or to purchase your copy today. Only $24.00 for a copy of this international art book.

New Website Look

I spent a good part of the night updating my website. I eventually want to get a full portfolio of all my work on there. Phew. There is still a long way to go...

But I did manage to begin my own store on my website. If you are interested in purchasing art, I finally have a place to sell it. My Etsy store will stay up but only for jewelry, fashion and steampunk items. From now on fine art such as journals, paintings, and mixed media art pieces will be for sale on my website.

Email me if you have any questions about the changes. I will continue to upload fine art to my website as I find the time.

Creating Costumes

I was asked to create a set of coordinating outfits for Tangled Threads a few weeks ago. Since then I have been concentrating all of my spare time and energy in designing and sewing two complete outfits by March.
The first week I worked solely on Jarquin's stiltwalking outfit and so far I am very happy with the result. The pants, vest, cuffs and thigh pouch are complete. I just need to work on a few minor details and the mask. This outfit is black, white, silver and royal blue. I brought in the diamonds again in this outfit and even made a 3d diamond pouch!
Jen's outfit is a little different. I am having "designers block" with it and just can't seem to move forward. It is very frustrating and making everything in my life a bit harder. I was able to move forward a little bit with Andrew's advice. He suggested I do what was designed and fun and stop messing with the frustrating stuff. That worked. I made an amazing bustle and then started in an underbust vest. The design keeps changing as I move forward in sewing, but that is part of how I work. I never stick to an original drawing, things evolve, ideas pop into my head and in the end I know the outfit will be great...I just have to get there.
I have the final fitting on Thursday. Wish me luck!

The Plague

I finally finished The Plague at 10 pm this evening. It took a total of 25 hours to sketch, paint and draw this piece of art into existence. I am SO happy with the outcome and very proud of this accomplishment. Here are some photos of the details and finished product. I will upload a proper image of this painting on deviant art tomorrow. If you want to see it in person, come to the Folk Yard: Fashion art show in Portland on February 15th at 7 pm at Boothster.

Painting...12 hours and counting.

I came up with an idea, scratched on a piece of paper with a fine tip sharpie, last weekend for a painting. I have been pinning images on an Idea board on Pinterest for months now and decided it was time to do something big. So last month I stretched a watercolor paper canvas on a home made wooden frame and just pulled it out to use. I have been saving it for something special.
I started working on the canvas yesterday and have already put over 12 hours of work into it. This is one of the largest watercolor paintings I have done and I know I still have at least another 12 hours before it is finished.
The subject is pretty dark and i am trying to think of a name for it. I will probably call it Famine or Plague, but we will see. I hope to show it at the Folk Yard show at Boothster in Portland on February 15th.

Here are some photos of the progression of the painting.
