What an awesome week I had! I’ve been invited to be part of a kickass art show – John Vitale presents Monsters of Art – Killer Art and Music @ the Garage – Central Ave Downtown St. Petersburg FL – on October 30th. I only have two weeks and then on November 6th (also at the Garage) we have Jim Morey‘s Nuthin But Love Cd Release (and birthday!) Party with music, performance art, living statue fashion art by the House of Ska, an Artist Alley where I’ll have stuff, a dramatic reading by Mr. Satanism, etc. etc. It’s going to be an amazing night. Hats off to Marty of the Garage. This guy knows and loves music and art and has the best venue in St. Pete by far. You can tell his heart is in every event he has there. A lot of venues just want your blood and soul so they can make a few bucks. Dating a musician has taught me this. The Garage is everything a venue should be and more. <3 I've been working my butt off on Jim's promotional stuff - two sided postcard and a poster so far. The theme is old school circus madness. Anyway, it's been really rewarding designing stuff for someone I believe in for their big night and getting invited to be in the Monster show was icing on the cake. I don't normally bore you with the graphic design side of my life, but I think you'll dig Jim's party stuff so I'm going to share:
In addition to Jim’s stuff I designed a new goth greeting card which is available in my etsy store. I’m calling it Heart Strings. You’ll recognize the art from a previous haiku comic panel but it’s been added to and remastered for the card and I’m working on prepping it so it will also be an 8 x 10 art print. Here’s how it came out:
I dig how the chompy bramble cupid-type guy came out on the side there. He makes me smile. Hope he does the same for you. 🙂
So, you probably noticed the comic today is a lil painting instead of the usual digital art. Star Grazer sold pretty much as soon as I painted it to the handsome and fabulous photographer extraordinaire Nick Doll. There will be other original art though so stay tuned. 😉
Before I go, I just want to remind you that Obscuria.com is still having that 15% off deal if you are after gothic alchemy jewelry, goth home decor, cybergoth goggles or gasmasks, etc. this is the time to snag it. The coupon code is on the Ennui art work on the homepage. 😉
Oh speaking of snagging stuff, guess who won a SpineStealer original drawing on that ebay auction? Uh huh! I got it for an absurdly low price. It’s too absurd to say even. When it arrives I’ll take a pic for you. I can’t wait to get it! yay! I told you it’s been a fabulous week.
Ciao for now…
