Freya Langford-Sidebottom did a cosplay/makeup art series for 30 days of Halloween in 2017. As SOON as I saw this photo, I knew I just had to get my grubby little paws on it. I might even dive into her photo reserve again in the very near future.

Remember when I said I don’t draw unicorns and fluffy rainbows? Yeah, I can’t say that anymore. Seems I have a whimsical part. What’s happening to me?




It’s October!  Time for some creepy art.  Kirsty always makes fantastic makeup just for the occasion!  You should check out some of her creations.

It was pointed out that this looks like the original character of The Crow by James O’Barr.  And yes, now that it was mentioned, it certainly does!  And I absolutely LOVE the movies, so the book will be mine.  I had never seen the original character until today.  I know, I know, shame on me!  But admission is the first step to recovery!  I will own the book, now.


Book Publishing Update

Sorry for so many posts today!  The gears are really grinding from now until the end of the year.

I wanted to give you guys a little update on the book.  I’ve run into a slight snag.  I have the digital pages all finished up and the book is ready to roll.  I do have a couple of pieces I can work on to still fit in, but the bulk of it is press ready.


Reaper [Draw this Again]

I drew this reaper about 10ish years ago.  I have seen several people using this drawing in their compilation videos and stuff, so if you’ve seen it running around, yep, it’s mine.

I wanted to include it in the book I am creating, but I can’t find the original piece.  It is around here somewhere, but it just seems to be avoiding me.  I scanned it a LONG time ago, but… the scan is WAY too small to be used in a book printing.


‘Tis Me

Yeah, this will probably get stored in a box never to see the light of day again LOL! Self portraits are extremely difficult. There is this mental stress every time I try it.

“Does this actually look like me?”
“Did I make myself prettier than I really am?”
“Did I focus on my flaws more than I should have?”
“It isn’t that bad…”
“This looks nothing like me…”
“I should trash it and never try again.”



Reference is a photo from a member on deviantART and Facebook. I had to wing most of it, because I forgot to take my reference photo with me…

This drawing is pending for inclusion in the book. It may find its way into it, but no guarantees yet. If you’d like a photo to be drawn and included in the book, be sure to get your submissions in, too.
