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!
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’ve had ever so much fun creating my newest Fashion Villains; Frederika Krueger, Helen Raiser & Talky Tina! Frederika is one of my all-time most requested villains ever, hands down. Ask & you shall receive! Personally, I think Helen Raiser is technically my best villain I’ve created. I went back to my true background in Fashion Design for her. I’m really proud of how she turned out. I will have limited amounts of 11×14″ versions of Frederika & Helen for those who have requested some larger Villains, but don’t worry – If you’re a collector of all the 8×10″ Fashion Villain prints, I will have those ladies in that size as well!
For those with a taste for something not of the Halloween variety, I will also be debuting prints of “Painting the Roses Red” & “Toasty” (the 2nd installment of the “Ladies Who Brunch” collection).
Dirty Teacup Designs will be on the corner of 2nd st & Roosevelt in Downtown Phoenix outside Revolver Records from 6pm-10pm on October 2nd, Hope to see you guys & ghouls there!
Phoenix Comicon 2015 has vanished as quickly as it crept up on all the creators, vendors & attendees who were a part of it… As always it was a crazy, exhausting, fun-filled experience… & I have to say, I had the most wonderful time! Despite all the dramatics that occurred while loading in. (Ahem, 4 hour wait to gain entry to the load-in dock – I’m looking at you!) The small turmoil passed & the excitement inside grew as I began laying out my fresh-off-the-presses new prints…
I debuted a personal record number of new pieces for the con. SIX, to be exact. Elebouffant – a piece based on the myth that elephants embody hidden strengths. A morning inspiration turned into the birth of a brand new collection (The Ladies Who Brunch collection) – Lady Marmalade. A variant of my Jane Voorhees Fashion Villain (soon I will have variants of all my Villains/Valors/Victims, so keep your eyes open!). My newest Fashion Villains, Jessica Doom & a fun commission turned into something I really adored- Mary Zombbins.
And last, but certainly not least, my lovely Viviana! She is the newest femme fatale of my Domestic Bliss collection. For inquiring minds, that collection dabbles in tales of forced happiness through separation, a dark & quirky take on the “can’t live with him can’t live without him” predicament, if you will. Viviana’s story is unlike all of the other ladies of the collection so far, as it is loosely based on reality. A long time ago, at a previous job of mine, some police came in inquiring about a customer; Who they claimed had apparently murdered & dismembered her husband, putting him into tupperware, before going on a shopping spree with his cards! It’s a story that has really stuck with me for a long time. Needless to say, I always wanted to create a piece semi-depicting it, but in a less macabre & more darkly humored way (well, as least macabre someone stuffing a body in tupperware could be!) So I present Viviana, with her eye-ball loving feline, Cleo!
New artwork aside, I just want to close out letting everyone know how grateful & humbled I am by all of my “regulars” & friends who came to Phoenix Comicon to support me & my art – the thing that keeps me going. I can’t express how much you all mean to me. I hope to see all of you again soon!
This Friday, October the 10th Dirty Teacup Designs will be at 2nd Friday Night Out from 6-10pm on Main st. in Mesa, between McDonald & Robson! There will be a Haunted Basement tour, a costume contest & I’ll be debuting the newest piece of my Fashion Valors collection: Zoe & Julie – They are based off one of, if not my all-time, favorite videogames; Zombies Ate My Neighbors! Zoe & Julie will be available as greeting cards, as well as 8×10 prints. October is the perfect time of year to give that special little odd ball in your life one of my Fashion Villains cards so if you can’t make it to this event, check them out in the Dirty Teacup shop!
