This underwater “Sea Skull” artwork infuses some of the fanciful creatures of the deep ocean with a decorative bent: seahorse skeletons, shells, coral and jellyfish tentacles. I didn’t want to go overboard with color; rather, wanted to highlight the details. Creating decorative skulls is really fun; perhaps I’ll explore glowing eyes in another piece 🙂

“Macabre Roses” was inspired by the old bookplate designs of the Arts & Crafts Era and the Art Nouveau periods. Although ram skulls are incorporated into the piece, they take a backseat to the bevy of roses. This piece has a gothic romanticism to it, where skulls are not a thing of horror, but simply a part of life.

The piece was created initially with pen and graphite, then scanned, digitally colored, with custom textures created and incorporated into the background.

“Bone Decor” was a new piece that was created with the Chillin Productions art show in mind. It is more of a decorative, non-narrative piece with a collage of different elements–bones, flowers and a snake skeleton. The shape of the piece mimics that of the human anatomy, with the ribcage and colorbone. I want the viewer to appreciate the beauty of the organic osteological forms and not get distracted by the horrific notion of death. The lily flowers were incorporated to compliment the theme.

Dark Art, Metallic Embellishments for Chillin Productions

. Posted by Sherrie Thai by Shaireproductions.com .

Created these special versions of the Bone Decor art for the Chillin Productions Art Show at 111 Minna Gallery (organized by Wonderland SF).

Mixed media: my illustrations, metallic findings, and coyote jawbone (painted silver). Since the item was to be displayed vertically, I glued the bones to the surface, then drilled holes into the board and it was sewn together with fishing line wire. A lot of behind-the-scene efforts, but well worth it.

Artwork: Lilith, Tree Goddess

Lilith tree goddess, art by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions.com

This “Lilith, Tree Goddess” Art print is now available on ETSY~ so add it to your collection today! 🙂

The piece was inspired by the famed goddess in old folklore, where feminine beauty and power reign free. Lilith is the goddess of freedom, courage, and passion. I created this piece with pen/ink, graphite, photography for the background and a tiny bit of digital coloring. The tones are kept minimal, to highlight her otherworldly qualities. Lilith seduces her subjects with her hands of branches as she is one with the earth. Skulls reside in her headdress, which were based upon the exquisite ornaments of old Chinese royalty, suggesting her royal status.

Artwork: Revenge of Madame Butterfly

Revenge of Madame Butterfly, art by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions.com

The “Revenge of Madame Butterfly” Art print is now available on ETSY~snatch it up! 🙂

Puccini’s “Madama Butterfly” is widely known as a beautiful classic opera, and although I can appreciate the aesthetics and musicality of the creation, I loathe the story. The protagonist is portrayed as a weak woman who unfortunately fell in love with a coward, who uses her and takes away her child, leaving her to commit suicide as an escape from her broken heart.

“Revenge of Madame Butterfly” is my dark continuation of the story–the protagonist gains strength in the afterlife and exacts her revenge on all who had wronged her, mainly her unfortunate lover. What she lacked in life was gained in her passage to the underworld. I combined the “Day of the Dead” makeup with the geisha outfit to emphasize the narrative spirit of the piece. The colors on the face are kept minimal to denote the ghostly presence. I also took some creative licensing with the sword design–more daunting and menacing than the typical samurai sword. Why do guys get to have all the fun?

Artwork: Game of Thrones Art, Whitewalker, Daenerys, Jon Snow Portraits

whitewalker night king art by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions.com

WHITEWALKER NIGHT KING, art print available on my Etsy shop. This Game of Thrones art series was super fun to do, but the Night King was by far my favorite piece to create as there were so many details and ridges to formulate. Throughout the art series, I wanted to pair the character portrait with their environment and a representative symbol. With the Night King, he raises the dead, so had to include a few whitewalker/zombie silhouettes. The amazing characters and interesting storylines (of George R. R. Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire”) make the series worth watching, though zombies in a fantasy world will always be a win for me 🙂

daenerys art by sherrie thai of shaireproductions.com

DAENERYS art print available. From the Targaryen line, Emilia Clarke’s character is an strong-willed leader and my absolute favorite. Also known as the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons and Khaleesi, she soars into the heavens on her scaly dragon friend, Drogon.
