Cecil the Cyclops, and the worst party evah! Doodle #13-DONE!

Poor Cecil.
Not only did Bloody Betty (the ghoul of his dreams) string up with Morbid Mike (moody asshole), he contracted a putrid pustule on top of his head just when it was his turn to play 7 minutes in the coffin with Gutted Greta!  She's not Betty, but hey.
Oh and just to top off the night, his head transporter broke down and he had to call his brother Trevor to give him a ride home.
They'll be no living with Trevor after this.
Poor Cecil. Lucky #13

Agatha Moonhouse talks to a ghost

The experiment continues!
I'm very excited about my next attempt at this hybrid medium of illustration and scenic design because I just got tutored by the wonderful and talented, Mr. Andrew Dickey on lighting and camera settings that will definitely prove useful during my arty spirit walk.
Teaching me anything technical is a major challenge, and I thank you Mr. Dickey for your patience and enthusiasm! Cheers to you too Kaef!

Here is the next illustration I will put on stage-Agatha talks to a ghost!
Let's see what comes out of this one shall we?

The experiment continues...

Ok, so my quest to make use of my degrees in scenic design and illustration, has created a sort of Frankenstein attempt at storytelling. Here is my very first hybrid.
I used my story of super sleuth Agatha Moonhouse as an example. I put my illustrations on a stage and made a theater production out of it. These are pictures with limited lighting resources, but hey it's a beginning. Enjoy!

***Btw, if you want to see a real master at this go visit Elly Mckay @ She's unbelievable!

Little play on the shadow man-
I'm going to ask for photography lessons this Xmas.

A new medium

I'm conducting an experiment and I hope you'll follow along.
I'm putting my scenic design background and my illustrations and fusing them into one.
I wonder how this is going to come out? Another mystery....

The Bluebird of Happiness

This is my first original painting I will be selling-ever.
I usually sell prints, but I thought I would up the ante and sell the original artwork. I really love him. His name is Henry and he was having a particularly bad day until a wave of peace swept over him when a bluebird landed on his head. Check out Etsy this afternoon, he will be listed by 2pm and ready to brighten your day.

An Unexpected Garden

This plant has been a fabulous source of surprise and mystery (two things I don't mind so much). It was originally a Calla Lily bought at the sexy Home Depot five years ago, but it has proved to be much much more. Check out the mysterious surprise I found this morning...
