Well, the weather is turning colder up here in Maine and the days are shorter and grayer and you know what that means. Perfect weather for creating new art! (Or, writing how-to articles.) I did an article for My Shopping Connection recently, a little how-to on creating scratchboard illustrations. Go check it out!
I have been so busy, so I'm just going to post a ton of pictures of my new work so you have some eye candy. Sounds good, huh? Below are 2 out of 3 new scratchboard pieces I've listed as part of my Night Revelry series. They come matted in letter pressed mattes from Yee Haw Industries. Very nice. Perfect for Halloween.
Then I listed 2 new art photos that I think bring some color to this fall weather. These pieces are entitled Pumpkin Camaro and Carnival Jewels.
And last but not least is Leonidas the Dog-Faced Boy, the latest addition to my Cigar, Creeper & Dark Circus and Sideshow series. I love how this one came out! I'm doing another shot for this series tomorrow so standby...
I have discovered a wonderful painter on Etsy who's sweet as pie. Alex Kuno does dark and intriguing paintings with subjects and titles that make you wish there was a novel to go with them. The pieces below are entitled The Fog and The Vengeful Dunces. Beautiful.
And I want to wrap up with 2 pieces of awesomeness! As you all know I puffy heart Tim Burton. He recently did a fashion shoot inspired by his movies and aesthetic for Harper's Bazaar magazine that is just amazing. The pics below give you just a taste of the awesome. And, here's even better news. The Museum of Modern Art in New York is doing a major retrospective on Tim Burton's work that opens November 22nd. I'm there. Totally. Can't wait.
Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
