Have a wonderful Holiday and I hope to see you at the show!

Here I come Brooklyn!

Hey New York!

Come hang out with me and do a little holiday shopping. Whats is better then buying handmade local gifts?

 

I am so very excited for this!  I have been a very busy bee with new prints and gifts for the holiday shoppers.

I will have all my illustrations including Begonia, Sucker, Darwin’s Daughters and Lavender for purchase for the 1st time ever.  My illustrations will be the star of the show for Brooklyn but I couldn’t help to make a couple little extra holiday gifts! A very limited supply of hand drawn pendants are wrapped and ready to go and Slumber Jacks will also be ready for adoption November 17th!

I cant wait to see you all there for some holiday cheer!

Have a wonderful day

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!
