Sorry everyone I have been slacking! Very busy busy bee with all sorts of shows coming up! Follow me here if you would like to know where I will be next to say hello! I know I would love to see you!

Here she is!  My little mermaid. Mermaid8 X 10 prints are available here  on Etsy. And the Original is still available for $700. Serious inquiries only please.
She was created on 14 X 17″ recycled Bristol using graphite. .05 and ,0 7 for all those who ask.

For those who want her as a tattoo, I am honored!  And I would love to see her on skin. I humbly request you purchase the right to tattoo her before you get it inked. Any good tattoo artist will request the same. Simply buy the print or make a $25 donation.  Also for extra points if you post your new April Alayne ink to my wall I will simply adore you.

Happy Halloween from “Sandy”

 

 

This is one of my girls who has gotten bitten. Originally she was going to be titled “Bittten” But I think “Sandy” if fitting. Living on the east coast I am fortunate enough that Sandy (the storm… not the Zombie) didn’t hit me too hard. To all my neighbors who got in her path my thoughts and well wishes go out to you and your families.

This illustration was just something quick and silly, but drawing zombies sure are fun.. I think I have been hanging out with Steve Becker and the FUBAR boys too much.

If you’re interested in a print of  “Sandy” please contact me (this includes tattoo designs) she will not be available in my store. If I get enough requests I will do a special limited release of her.

Have a very wild and wicked Halloween everyone!

Darwin’s Daughter.

This is my new addition to my girls collection “Darwin’s Daughter”, I named her Cheli.

I have been asked by many to create a mermaid and this is what I came up with.  Ok so Cheli is not really your typical mermaid illustration but I enjoy the way she turned out.  I got whisked away on the classic story of the siren pining to be on land but with this illustration it dabbles with the thoughts of evolution as well. Like her sisters she is strongly influenced by floriography and symbolism. The Chelindonium plant in the lost language of flowers means the joys to come and compliments the Angraecum sesquipedale plant ( Darwin’s orchid) that represents hope.  The very suggestive Japanese flying fish is a symbol of time and stages of evolution. This being said Cheli I feel is the classic story of  The little mermaid with a scientific twist.

Cheli, will be available on Etsy very soon but in the mean time check out her sisters and other prints!

Have a great night every one.

Balsamine

 

Please welcome “Balsamine” to our family.

 

 

 

Balsamine represents the impatience of spring. This wild Maryland weather is such a tease for those who love the season.

She was created on a 14 X16″ sheet of Bristol and graphite. Like many of her sisters

She will be available on AlwaysApril soon!

 

I hope everyone is having a great night!

 

Coriander

Please let me introduce my newest illustration.

Coriander

 

2012- April Alayne.

She, like her sisters illustrated before, was inspired by my love of floriography.

PRINTS will soon be available on AlwaysApril.Etsy.com

Thanks for looking, I hope you all are having a luscious day.

-April
