Begonia. The wild Child

Let me introduce to you Bengonia

Begonia is a wild child of the night! Like the others she is a part of my collection that is sprinkled with symbolism through images and floriography.

I think she is my favorite thus far.

She will be available for purchase soon on my ETSY store. Limited printing. Thinking you want her permanently on your body as a sweet tatt? Convo me.

And here is a sneak preview of a Halloween creation about to be finished!

Like me for updates with my art projects.

Also there is still time to win free prints by sharing my page on FB. What are you waiting for?

“Sucker”

Let me introduce to you “Sucker”

 

“Sucker” is a part of my Girl collection. Like her sisters she is heavily influenced by floriography and symbolism  She was a blast to draw.


Sucker will soon be available on Etsy to purchase. She will have limited prints.

COMING SOON:

 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic October. Feel free to contact me.

 

“Lavender” for Alexis.

Hello everyone! Say hello to Lavender. 

© April Alane 2012

Lavender is a part of my girls collection. Commissioned by a lovely lady, Lavender is a design to compliment my Forgotten Crab-apples piece.

This design represents sorrow and a reflects a bit of sadness. Not only is she influenced by Celtic symbolism she is also strongly influenced by floriography, like most of my girls.

Both designs will be used for tattoos for Alexis that her tattoo artist will modify to his or her comfort.

This finished tattoos -hopefully- will be shown on Facebook

While I am on the topic of commissions and tattoo designs, Alexis has paid for both designs for her and her artist to use.

Finding the right tattoo artist is KEY to duplicating my work. While it would be nice to simply walk in to a shop and say “Hey you there! tattoo this on my body!” it doesn’t really work that way. Every tattoo artist has his or her own style so you should look for and artist that is fantastic with portraits.  Do some research, remember it is forever.

As I do appreciate when people use my illustrations for a tattoo it does raise the question of “stolen work”. I take it as a compliment always and forever first (truly I do!  “Can I get your artwork permanently on my body?” Uhh! yah! What an honor!) however in order for me to keep creating lovely designs for you all I also need to help keep the art alive.

If you would like to use a design or have some ideas of your own please feel free to contact me! I would love to hear  from you. And also take a look at my shop!

Thanks everyone and have a great night!

All about the Apple. Iphone case pizzazz.

So here is an idea I have been toying around with. Since everything is all about iphone and bedazzling them to their finest why not spruce them up with artwork?

Here are some examples of what I would be selling.

 

An Iphone case with original artwork designs by April Alayne? Not to shabby an idea I think. Something a little original for your phone.

Any requests or ideas on the topic?? Please feel free to share!
And If you would like to order one please let me know by shooting me an email 

I hope you’re all having a wonderful day!
