Again, I've neglected my blog! I could give you excuses, instead I'll give you two new pieces to mull over. For an exhibition I'm helping organise for September. More info to come.

The sketches are possibilities for development into paintings.... But will also be for sale.
I'm also on Instagram now, incase I hadn't mentioned - VictoriaMortuary I think.

'Mad love' acrylic on salvaged wood
Having just come back from a lovely long weekend in Scotland I feel fully refreshed. Soon as I was home I got into painting the lovely Harley Quinn (*girly geeky fan girl swoon). The reason being that I'm hoping that in August I'll have my first stall at a comic convention! 'Megacon' In Carlisle, in the north of England.
Expect a prolific amount of 'geeky' wonders to appear on my various websites (keep checking my facebook as I seem to keep that the most up to date https://www.facebook.com/pages/Victoria-Mortuary-Art-and-Illustration/119799881529288).
The upper painting was a commission piece. I thought I may have struggled to begin with - as I've little experience in painting men), but overall I was quite happy with how Gomez turned out.

Today I actually submitted some work to a magazine which required me to write an 'artist statement'. Something that I loath doing - however - it's a necessary evil. I shall post it at some point and you can see for yourself how terrible I am at describing my own work.
Anyway, these images are a selection of various projects I'm working on. There is a portrait of Claudia from Interview with the vampire (of course a huge Anne Rice fan!). Enough babbling for now.

'Moira' - acrylic on salvaged wood. It's not finished - but it was much needed. I've had a rather crappy few days and instead of studying the pancreas, Moira puffed into my head firstly in sketch form, and then into a painting. Based upon the very sensual and overtly sexual 'maid' character from the American horror story 'murder house' series. Enjoy.
