I usually post all my own work here, and occasionally a review of an artist or a few artists.
Today is one of the days when I feel like showing what some of my friends make. I belong to a team on etsy which runs on chaos and confusion. It’s enchanting in a way. There’s none of the usual melodrama or arguing found on that site- it’s a strange and silly group of people. The only real rule is to help each other out- and to enjoy doing it.
First of all, there’s Debbi. Now, she does digital stuff, photographs. She works in NOLA, which means all her stuff has that creepy, southern vibe. But she has also given me tons of ideas for my own work, including the notion to do curated shadowboxes. She is a promotional wizard and she is also the queen of amokery, even.
Also, I love her work.
can check out more of her things here.
I should also say that she is soooooooo fabulous.
Anyone who likes the dirty south should enjoy taking a peek at her stuff.
Then, there’s Francesca. I know two Frannies, this one is the dark one- her work is gothic, and sometimes strange. She does a lot of things with tiny bones, with feathers. She’s totally obsessed with day of the dead motifs.
Her stuff makes me smile. I know she also, like me, LOVES skulls.
You can see more from her here.
I’ve talked to her quite a bit, and her tastes are really similar to mine. She likes dead things, tattoos, and good music.
What I would call good, anyway.
People who like my stuff will probably like her stuff A LOT.
Which means that I don’t need it, given that I have no kids.
BUT! I got her book on bullying for my nieces and nephews.
AND! she also makes this scary guy!
Well, not scary. just goth. I think she’s going to make some more of these,
I really hope she does. This one sold right away.
She is like Mary Poppins, ever so polite, kind, and decent. It’s kind of funny that someone like that would be my friend. but she is! You can see more of her work here- and you should definitely check it out if you have/like/know any kids.
she is very sweet, and kind.
Of everything she does though-
I am in LOVE with these.
They’re just big enough for plugs. and just soft enough to keep things from breaking.
You can find the rest of her work here.
he’s goofy as hell.
I think he would like to be serious at times but he is just…not.
He lives near some friends of mine out in the desert, so I’m hoping on my next road trip I get to meet him and kick it a little.
You can find more of his stuff here.
He reminds everyone all the time that he’ll make prints in just about any size…so I’ll say that for him too. The man has drive.
I’ve got about ten more people I WANT to include, but I will wait until next time to write about them all. I’ll just leave you with a few pictures to click on, that go to more things made by each person.
I’ll be posting some paintings later on today- I’m almost done with the sasquatch, so even if it fails I will put him up!
All these folks are awesome people. I mean it.
