So that time I did two Halloween windows and never talked about them. Here we go!
These ghosts!!! I know, crazy spooky scary. This was my Halloween window for the Rare Device//Noe Valley store. It had to be done rather quickly, so I stitched up these ghosties. I kept the gold diamonds that were up with the Cactus window because, why not, they’re cool. I like this last photo, it looks like they’re having a party and they”re singing.
I hung up my original creepy girl drawings at the Divisadero store. It was probably the simplest installation I’ve done, but it still took me forever. (People who install quickly, so impressed with you.) I also printed up some postcard sets and 8 x 10 prints.
Happy Halloween everyone!!! I hope ya’ll have a spooky special day!
For this last creepy post, I was inspired to do a poison bottle. Not a portrait, I know, but it was fun!
Pardon my absence! October totally flew by! I feel this way about every month though and you’d think I’d have a bazillion more things to show!! Hopefully I can get this series, well, into an actual series soon!
But for now, here’s TWO creepy portraits!
I have two more in the works. Now, can I finish those by Halloween?…
I can’t believe it’s already October! And it’s so hot outside today!! I could only handle 30 minutes at Baker Beach before bailing for shade and iced drinks. So when better than this beautiful, sunny day to start some new Creepy Portraits for Halloween!
I sat outside my favorite coffee house (in full shade of course) and started my fifth creepy portrait. Here’s an in progress look:
I had so much fun doing these last year! I didn’t think of the series until the last few days of October, so hopefully I’ll have several more done this time around. Here’s Creepy Portrait #1, #2, #3, and #4.
Ahh I haven’t updated in so long! I’ve returned to day-job land and haven’t had much time to get crafty lately. The only projects I’ve been working on have been christmas gifts, which would be spoilers if I posted them! Ahh such a dilemma!
Halloween seems like forever ago, but I never posted my finished sly fox costume! Roos hasn’t been in the mood to put it back on for me to photograph, but I’ll get him to because I loved it and never got a good photo. For now, here’s the one terribly lit/surreal/kinda creepy snap that I have:
I think I’m going with a Victorian haunted house “creepy” for these ink drawings. I’ve never been one for gore or violence so the unsettling, eerie, someone-is-watching-you vibe will have to do.
I’m pretending that this woman is some kind of evil headmistress, either boarding school or orphanage…or that she’s the wicked stepmother to portrait #2. I suppose I should start drawing different shaped noses…
Here’s my third black and white portrait for halloween! It looks like the longer this series goes on, the more rendered they’ll become…
Here’s my second creepy portrait in the spirit of Halloween!
I drew this all alone, late at night while everyone was asleep…..with all the lights on, watching something very not scary. She’s more sad than creepy, but I think that should still count as unsettling.
