Shop of the Week: TatteredRags.etsy.com

Hi, my name is Jodi... my dolls and their clothes are always completely hand stitched, and I always use vintage buttons as well as other unusual findings to aid in making each of them original, unique, and one of a kind.
I use only the finest quality supplies, I take pride in my work, detail is very important to me, and I continually strive to be a better artist.
The inspiration comes from my intrigue with creepy imagery, horror, gore, and my love of gothic and punk fashions.
I absolutely love making dolls and I am always thrilled to ship them off to their new homes.

Shop of the Week: SkeletalDropkick.etsy.com

Check out my under $10 section, tons 'O stuff!
My ceramics are not gallery or museum-quality, they are home-quality. They are strong and sturdy and able to stand up to daily use. They are priced so that most people are able to afford them and so that you won’t feel like you have to only use it for special occasions. I fire only at cone 10, which means that the B-mix clay I use is vitrified and as dense as stone (hence, stoneware). You won’t find the fine art, froo-froo here, only real ceramics built for daily use!

They call him... Mr. Cthulhu


I'm so excited !!! A few months ago I started a series of silhouette paintings. I decided to take my favorite characters from literature then transform them into silhouettes with a little Steampunk twist. So far on my drawing board I have Alice, Cheshire Cat, Colonel Brandon, and a few others. But today I finished my first and favorite... Mr. Cthulhu! It took me at least a month to get the wings just the way I wanted them. He is dressed as a distinguished Victorian gentleman with top hat, and high collard coat. Setting off his tattered wings, and undulating tentacles nicely. He is lovely hand painted on canvas paper with accents painstakingly detailed in India ink. I then accentuated parts of him with a color of green that I image Cthulhu to be. After the painting was all finished I mounted it on a large ornate wooden plaque, and placed my favorite quote about him on the back to honor his creator H.P. Lovecraft. I am so happy with it. It came out just the way I imagined it in my mind. Very dapper, yet retaining all his monstrous appeal with his alien eye gazing steely upon you till you submit to his horrific will.
