Tidbits & after thoughts for Phoenix Comicon 2015

PCC 2015 SetupPhoenix 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…

How Dirty girls get into conventions

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!
