It will be a hectic month this September and here is where you can meet me and other amazing talents this month.ship beard 0042DARKWM

Newest illustration to the beard collection “Sailors Beard”

Original illustration by April Alayne. 

This sexy sailor was created with a  .5 and . 7 mechanical pencil on recycled bristol. He took about 2 and a half days to complete. Original for sale. Contact me for serious inquiries. 

Prints are available on Etsy and you can follow progress on my Facebook or Instagram 

I just got back for Wildwood NJ from the Beach Bash Villain Arts puts on and it was a great show!

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!

How has everyone enjoyed their March so far? I am loving this warm weather and wind! Simply my favorite season.

Vintage Curves

Vintage. Vintage. Vintage.

We all have a love for vintage these days.

Being a lady of curvy nature this sometimes can be difficult and somewhat frustrating  when shopping for these unique items.

I know my DDD girls are more then likely not fitting into %50  of whats out there…. ok more like %85 who am I kidding here.

I have been spending a bunch of my time on my new Etsy shop Threadoverheels working to solve this issue for my curvy soul sisters.

Thread Over Heels is mainly dedicated to sizes 14- 22 whether is be vintage, up-cycled, or hand made fashion. Not saying there is never a smaller sizes, I have sections dedicated for all sizes, but more focused to the voluptuous dames.

The shop is also dedicated to other vintage finds and accessories such as scarves and umbrellas and such. In addition to all my sewing creations!

I add new items daily! And I would love your love and support!

Have a great day everyone and thanks!

Always,

April
