This spiral notebook is available on ETSY HERE and is adorned with my “Steampunk Skeleton Heart” artwork (a mixed-media creation inspired by Day of the Dead and the Steampunk genre). It’ll be a lovely gift for yourself or for that special someone who enjoys writing and appreciates a touch of macabre steampunk in their collection.
“Deadly Beauties Set 2” is a 3-piece pinback button set that was created and produced from my original illustrations, inspired by the dark fantasy world of mysterious creatures filled with vampires and mermaids. GET THE DEADLY BEAUTIES BUTTONS ON ETSY.
“Evil & Good Mermaids” celebrates the magical realm of the supernatural and the dangerous lure of temptation. The original illustration was created from pen/ink and I combined the background with Photoshop and added digital coloring.
Here’s the perfect gift for anyone who appreciates the exquisite Sirens of the Sea: ART PRINTS
“Vanitas Veins” is a mixed media piece of a mysterious angelic creature, drawing breath from the bloody veins of life, perfect for the Halloween holiday. The illustration speaks to the mysteriousness of life. The blood veins reach outwards like wings, similar to how magic can call upon us in the quiet moments of the dawn 🙂
You can add this piece to your art collection HERE at my Etsy Shop.
“Skeletons Playing Piano Duet” is an informal homage to my favorite instrument with a fun “day of the dead”-inspired scene. This piece was also inspired by Tim Burton’s “Corpse Bride”–I adore the piano scene in the movie where the characters tickled the ivory keys and started an infactuation. My illustration was created via pen/pencil with an incorporation of old photo textures and digital coloring. I always like to retain the original black & white drawing in its original state for greater flexibility 🙂
“The Fates” (or Moirai) is based on the mythical goddesses that rule the thread of life: Spinner, Allotter and Unturnable. My version portraits a darker view of the Fates, where the Spinner produces the magical thread from the depths of her soul.
“Momento Mori” is Latin for “Remember Death”, which speaks of the transient nature of objects and one’s mortality. I wanted to create a world which celebrates positivity and beauty in all forms, where memories of love exists beyond the confines of time. The original artwork was created with ink, graphite, some of my own photography, and a touch of digital coloring. PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Here are some concept sketches for “Momento Mori”. I wanted to infuse some steampunk elements, but after the rough sketch, decided to add some roses to soften up the image. I’m pretty pleased with how this piece came out as it exhibits an emotional narrative.
