I love, love monster movies! Zombies are my first favorite, but I think the most impactful monsters are the Universal Monsters. If you think of Frankenstein’s monster, for example, you instantly think of Boris Karloff. The look is really iconic. So I wanted to play around with zombie imagery, and not necessarily taking on the iconic looks but exploring how we approach it.
I collected all the relevant art into a zine which was a lot of fun to make! A lot of my images are drawn with watercolors, which by its nature is very zen, but paired with horror takes on a new atmosphere. Plus, the art is paired with written excerpts from Jeremy Fishell (that’s my amazing husband) which gave the whole zine a zombie survivor journal vibe.
I hope you like it! You can pick one of these up in my Etsy shop – we only printed 12 this time, and we’ll definitely be making a second volume (maybe on witches??) and you can stop by my Instagram for future updates.
New print release! If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen this announcement already but just in case – the Headphones Girl print is now available in the shop! The prints look amazing and I’m so happy to see how the colors turned out. With watercolors, you never know what’ll happen. Sometimes they look washed out, or don’t scan in right, or you didn’t get the colors right and need to start over – the sky is the limit for mistakes. You can see how it all came together in this video.
Let me know what you think of this new illustration in the comments and have a happy Easter weekend!
Guyyyyyys, I’m so excited! I put up the prints from the Doom and Gloom series for sale in my Etsy store as well as a couple favorites that I’ve never sold before online. I’ve only sold the Romeo and Juliet print above and a couple other prints during art walks so far and it’s sold out super quick, so fingers crossed that I’ll have enough.
To celebrate, you can use coupon code NEWSHOP for 10% off your order until Apr 18, 2017 in my shop. I’m working on a new print, tentatively titles Headphones girl (you can see the process here) so I’d love to send these to new homes so I can make room for new prints. Let me know what you think of the new look!
