The past few weeks have been filled with some wonderful indie shows! I reluctantly (or not so reluctantly) take a break from outdoor shows to hide myself from the intense Arizona summer heat & unpredictable storms, so it is lovely to have found some interesting indoor shows. I’ve been selling my goodies at the The Grid: Games & Growlers in Mesa every last Saturday of each month at their Geek Rummage Sale & it has been a blast so far! I also just wrapped up selling at the AZ Game On Expo & had a wonderful time, it’s always fun trying out new shows, especially ones where I have the opportunity to sell next to such talented and kind vendors, as well as collect some great gaming merchandise! Soon, I’ll be back to my favorite grind of Art Walks like First Friday, Second Fridays – All the Fridays! I can’t wait to see my regulars, I miss you guys tremendously & your support really keeps my head up. September is going to be a busy month, so stay tuned – I’ll be announcing my upcoming shows quite soon (Including Keen Halloween & so many more!) Be sure to follow me on INSTAGRAM & FACEBOOK to see where I’ll be selling next💚
This year Dirty Teacup Designs will be in Artist Alley table 703 at Phoenix Comicon all weekend long. As part of the show, I’ll be debuting BRAND NEW prints – and they all just so happen to be my most requested characters by you guys! In addition, I’ll be posting teasers of my new pieces as it gets closer & closer to the event. So stayed tuned to Dirty Teacup Designs on Facebook & Instagram <3
PCC is an annual comic convention held June 2nd-5th, 2016 at the Phoenix Convention Center. Looking for more information about the show? Visit their website for more info!
As the Arizona weather is begins its morph into weather of the face-melting variety; I’ve been a busy bee creating some new pieces for my last Arizona art shows for the summer!
Among the new art prints are: “See Right Through You” Most all of my art is based off emotions I’m going through or currently overcoming – and this one is no exception. We often come across people in life we turn a blind eye to; Either for the sake of keeping our idea of them or yourself up to certain ideals, or from their ability to cleverly conceal their intentions. Then there’s the moment of clarity that blooms, letting you see them for who they truly are. Exhilarating. Disappointing. Beautiful.
“Bottle Envy” which is inspired by the sticky, sweet scent of Viktor&Rolf’s Bon Bon & it’s gloriously unique candy-shaped bottle. A little closer to my Fashion Design roots.
“Drown Your Sorrows” A down-on-her-luck broad taking a load off in a delicious glass of whiskey.
“An Affectionate Facehugger” Because hugs come in all shapes & sizes.
With the sudden and saddening loss of one of the most influential & favorite artists of mine (and countless others) I created a Prince inspired surreal version of “Purple Rain” to show my respects to this tremendous loss to music, art, fashion & so much more.
These will all debut at all my May art shows. Each of them are 8×10″ – with the exception of “Facehugger” which is 8×8″. I hope to see some of you for my last outdoor shows of the summer. If not, I’ll see you at Phoenix Comic Con is next month with even more new art!
A smorgasbord of my Fashion Villains – and this is only a few of them! What started as just one fashion illustration of “Michelle” Myers I sketched for fun while watching Halloween II in 2013 turned into a whole collection of all my favorite horror villains/characters as classy dames. I’m happy so many of you love these as much as I do, as they are one of the first real collections I created. You can see all of them in my shop!
Next month I’ll be preparing for Phoenix Comicon, I can’t believe it’s that time ALREADY! I have lots of new pieces planned for the show, most everything I’ll be debuting are characters/concepts you guys have requested at art shows to show my appreciation for your support<3 The Dirty Teacup Designs booth will be in Artist Alley table AA703 June 2nd-5th! Hope to see some you there!
I’ll Debuting tons of new art prints! Wear Your Feelings *also, known to many as simply, “Pizza Girl”*, Feline Fringe *the newest edition to my Bouffant collection*, No Disintegrations! A Star Wars/The Cure hybrid set of Fashion Villains, Succulent & Limited prints of Vanessa the Sea Witch because a lot of you have asked for her!
My very first art show of the year will be this First Friday!
Ironic, with this being the first day of the NEW YEAR! I will be set up in my usual spot on 2nd Street & Roosevelt outside of the fabulous Revolver Records in Downtown Phoenix. No doubt it will be a major event! There will be lots of commotion going on in the area because of the holiday festivities. So stop on by, say Hello & check out my newest art prints!

Dirty Teacup is the idea of two seemingly unrelated entities fusing together. Something delicate, feminine and presumably beautiful blended seamlessly with the macabre, ominous or peculiar.
