Horror Valentines!

Sometimes hearts and flowers will only do if the heart’s cursed and the flowers are omnivorous. If you wish to tell someone you love them horribly then let one of these dear little monsters be your messenger.

Greeting cards, as well as diverse ephemera for your haunted house, available here: http://www.redbubble.com/people/bohemianweasel/collections/486329-valentine-horror

Dreamers of Darkness

‘Dreamers of Darkness’ sketch card set for sadlittles.com. I took classic literary horror as my inspiration

Dreamers of Darkness, Vlad Dracul

Original painting for a basecard in the ‘Dreamers of Darkness’ trading card set depicting ‘Vlad the Impaler’.
With historically accurate headgear, and slightly more artistically vague victims in the background.

6×8 inches, mixed media.

Victorian Gothic on the Silver Screen

The Dark Nights are here

Halloween is a splendid time of year: the perfect excuse to eat your bodyweight in chocolate and wear your superhero costume in public. But any truly sinister creature knows that Halloween isn’t the best time to venture forth, precisely because the streets are full of chocolate-buzzed nutjobs dressed as superheroes. No, these chaps prefer a time that’s quieter and darker than Halloween: the night when the clocks go backward; the 13-hour night that ushers in Winter and heralds the dying of the light. Things are about to get very dark, and (as it’s me) that also means Victorian! (Apparently modern culture has monsters as well, but really, phoo, who cares?) These precious little monsters are all sketch-card sized paintings (2.5 x 3.5 inches) adorned with gory little treasures for a 3-dimensional touch.  The sale of each of these contributed a little something to an array of apt charities; for example Dracula helped an organisation in Africa get clean blood, Sweeney Todd’s donation went to Locks of Love; you get the idea. So swoon gracefully into the nearest velvet chaise, and enjoy!
