Between insanities

So fair bit been going on since my last blog…. I know I am awful at keeping you lovely people up to date.
Well at the moment I am waiting for a download of the McGann Docotr Who film, yes the awfully scripted American one, so I decided to pass the time with a quick blog.

Yesterday was my first paid day in my new job. I won’t say where exactly, this blog is not about my employment status except with regards to my art work, except that it was of Britain’s leading supermarkets. I am to be a till queen ^____^

Last night was also the night that we held a Halloween party at our shiny, not so new now, flat. It was immense fun, lots of booze, food and smokes all round. For the party we had some polystyrene signs bought from the local supermarket saying, Morgue, Autopsy room, Crematorium and Grave yard. So of course we hung them on the doorways and themed each room as best we could.
I have actually spent most of the last fortnight making the majority of decorations for the rooms (including gravestones for the garden, only to have it rain on the night). My biggest regret, even more than drinking so much I was ill, is that I did not take photos beforehand!
Most of the decorations are still up and still in one piece as well. But it just doesn’t have the same feel as it did on the night. All I can say is that next year it will be bigger, better and with more gore and torture instruments. (Ran out of time to make bodies to drape around the place, will not make that mistake next year).

One other thing that has happened recently is that I finished the Harley Quinn painting from my earlier blog post. It has now been exchanged for the fee and has taken pride of place in the home of the birthday girl it was bought for ^__^
Here’s a few photo’s to show just how well it turned out 😉

  
More art to come soon. Updates galore to get through over the next few weeks. After all CHRISTMAS SOON!

Halloween

It is October, the month of Hallowe’en!

HURRAH!

To celebrate this most wondrous of pagan holidays I have converted my blog to a Hallowe’en them and also  themed my entire Etsy store including all the listings.

To do this I spent the entire morning converting the living room into a themed photo studio and then set about taking photos of all of my creepy, spooky and downright unnerving paintings to list on Etsy. This was a bit of a fraught process as in the long months of inactivity my phone has developed an annoying quirk of not turning on properly. (I now have to take the battery and SD card out and blow on them and the contacts inside before it will work. Very reminiscent of a SNES but also pretty damned annoying, so just like a SNES cartridge then.)

The photo shoot ended before I had snapped all the pics due to moisture condensing on the inside of the lens, very annoying. But I did have lots of fun playing with candles in bottles, sweets, plastic bugs, pumpkin candles, a cardboard candelabra and even my old companion Bob the skull. The resulting photos do look awesome if I say so myself and after having listed half of the paintings on Etsy I have already had about a dozen views across the range (it has only been about 2 hours since I listed them), so it must be doing some good.

Here are a few examples of the pics I took and don’t forget to check them all out at my Etsy store. (Not all listings are uploaded yet but they will be by theend of this weekend.)

I know right pretty awesome right??

Well stiffs and ghouls you ain’t seen nothing yet.

Here’s a hint, LEGO, storage, pumpkin….

Soon my little creatures… Soon

MWHAHAHAHA *cough* HAHAHA *splutter splutter* HAHAHA! (I should smoke less….)

P.s. The spider-webs are felt coasters, sold in ASDA well worth checking out.

Melancholia / Season of ghosts

This world constrains me and weights me down with it’s banality and rigidity of thought.

Not all is depressing in the world today though.

The blog has a new theme and projects are a foot. What do you think of the hallowe’en colour scheme? Needs some doodles I know but I am sans scanner and lacking in css and digital drawing skills.

Also tomorrow I will start the process of listing a couple of dozen paintings in my Etsy store with a range of prices and designs. Some old some new. Promotional codes to follow and next day delivery to arrive before hallowe’en.

Tomorrows blog will be a little less gloomy.

I now have my second beer, all is good with the world.
