Trick or Treat Olivia

Spent some time working on a new creepy cutie.  I have named her Olivia. I used Neo Colors, color pencils, acrylic paint pens and ink to create her.  Then I cut her out and worked on the background.  Spray inks, stencils, acrylic, paint pens and water soluble oil pastels were used to create the background.  Once I was finished with the background I glued her own then added melted wax to add texture and shine.
She will now join the other Creepy Cuties before her.

Fall photo shoot

This past Monday I spent the afternoon with a great friend snapping photos, enjoying lunch and great conversation.  It's so nice to spend time with a creative friend.  Cindy loves to take photos and I think is pretty darn good at it. check her out on instagram. cindypowersphotography.
Here are some of my favorite shots I took that day. I did a little playing around with them in photoshop as well.  It was a fun change of creative expression. I don't usually take many photos unless its at my sons soccer game. It was fun looking into the world through a lens.

Night Watch.

Spent some much needed time in my studio last weekend. Have a few more pieces that I am working on and I am hoping that I can get back into the studio this weekend to work on them.
I am calling this "Night Watch". My son Jackson named her Julia and she is protects us from things that go bump in the night.  I guess the Halloween spirit is getting to me a few weeks early.
Hope you all enjoy.

Some inspiration from Trash Polka style tattoos

Just finished watching last weeks Ink Master and the style they focused on was called Trash Polka.  I loved the composition and the how the red popped in the tattoo artist artwork and  It inspired me to create one of my Geisha Girls in this style.  Defiantly going to do some more creating this way.   
Materials used:
Water color paper
Posca Pens
Water color
Rub on's

Geisha girl complete (forgotten photo)

I didn't realize I never posted the finished photo of this Geisha Girl.  Sadly I haven't been able to draw much lately since I started my new job. I miss it terribly but just haven't had the time. When I do have the time I have no inspiration. I am hoping soon I will be back to drawing.  Until then here is my last Geisha Girl completed.

Just finished up 2 of 4 of my new girls.  She looks like the younger sister to the first one.
To create her I used Neo color II, Gelatos, Prisma pencils, Pitt pen (for the hair), acrylics, white Sharpie marker, Posca pens, inks, stamps and Dylusions spray ink.  Umm I think that's it! Ha.  I really do love my art supplies.  Hope you enjoy what I have created.
