This character is something I came up with for these brooch/pendant pieces I make in my illustrated jewelry line. I named her the first time I sketched her and she has been using those eyes to sway me into allowing her to make an appearance in a haiku comic. So, here you go Miss Spooky Eyes. Now blink, for goodness sake!
I’m a bit over worked at the moment, so I’m going to have to keep tonight’s post brief. I will leave you with a link to a fairly new and pretty awesome blog by the name of The Goth Aesthetic. This week they took a look at the new black for Goths…or the new bat…basically, they note the emergence of the octopus in recent dark art, fashion and decor. My octopus bracelet is one of the tentacle-a-licious items featured. The article reflects upon the mysterious ways of the octopus which may just explain why it keeps popping up in the work of dark artists. It’s a nice little article with plenty of eye candy so check out: Get Your Tentacles On Me.
I’d like to add that squid and jellyfish are equally fascinating but don’t seem to get the same attention the octopus is gets. Well, myself excluded. I love them all and pay homage to them all in my work.
That’s all for now. It’s your turn to haiku. Use the comic art or tentacled creatures as inspiration. In case you are new or aren’t sure how, a haiku is composed of 3 lines, generally in syllables of 5,7,5 respectively. Number one rule: have fun.
