vanitas veins, dark horror art by Sherrie Thai of shaireproductions.com

“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 🙂

Horror Moth tshirt design on zazzle, art by Sherrie Thai of Shaireproductions

“Horror Moth” is a skeletal rendering of the metamorphic creature. It seems in Western cultures, the moth represents horror, with the qualities of fragility and death, while in Japanese folklore, such as “The Dream of Akinosuke”, it represents a departure of souls. This is available as a t-shirt and entirely customizable. Check it out HERE

I’ve always admired the ferocious horns of the Dynastinae or Rhinoceros Beetles, so I combined them with a human rib cage, eyeball and beautiful wings. It’s enjoyable exploring sinister creatures and insects. The first was “Deathly Scarab”–perhaps a whole series to come! 🙂 The piece was created with pen/ink and Photoshop coloring.

Skeletal Heart

“Skeletal Heart” is about love and death amidst the quiet beauty of nature. The colors are muted to highlight the subject matter and details of the illustration. Like many of my recent works, I’m greatly influenced by Victorian elements, steampunk, gothic surrealism, and nature.

These photos were taken at the California Academy of Sciences Skull Exhibit–incredibly fascinating! I love the semi-smile of the snapping turtle (top) to the sinister grin of the alligator. . . more images to come.
