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.

ahh and Disney rears it's ugly head!

 Can you sense a theme running here? Convention here we come - or so I hope! Prints will be for sale when I manage to get my Etsy store. Details will eventually follow.

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.

 'L'amour' acrylic on salvaged wood

'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
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.

A selection of my latest creations. I've had the good news that I passed all my exams, which means I can officially teach the joys of mortuary protocol and autopsy procedures! It also means that now I can finally settle back into my artwork and get serious about things.
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.

Got quite the mix here... on going concerns - bottom is a picture of Sarah from the Jim Henson film 'Labyrinth'! (Love that film). Then we got band poster design thumbnails, a new painting and another band related design idea....

So I've been away for quite a while, trying to recoup after my tedious anatomy exams.... Having a pathologist asking your random anatomical and physiological questions is rather stressful. In any case, here are a few sketched I've done recently... A little bit different! Enjoy.

'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.
