Goth Chicks

A couple of plain-old, ordinary Goth Girls.


Nothing witty or special to report this week.  Did a couple of smaller paintings since I was still in the mood after completing part one of my Halloween project (which is probably the biggest part of the project).  Next I get to go back to some long over due commissions.  I always feel guilty taking a break to do something fun for myself with no rhyme or reason.

Oh yeah, and I finally used more of those frames I keep hoarding for these two paintings.  On the fence if I want to spray paint them black or keep them they way they are. Leaning more towards keeping them the way they are.

Mid-week Blogging

Preview of the "Piece that Must Not be Named".
I don't normally post in the middle of the week.  If someone was observant, or just bored, they'd notice I only post on the weekends.  Primarily Sunday evening.  But, since it's been over a week and a half since the last post and I didn't want to go too long with out blogging this time, I thought what the hell?  Not like I have anything more exciting to do right now anyway. (Kidding.)

Although I've had a totally exciting week and a half, most of it's been unrelated to arts and crafts.  Honestly I've been doing that thing where I try to finish unfinished items floating around the house again.  And that's what you see up above.  It's a snippet from the "secret" project that won't be unveiled until Halloween.  I'm doing a small series of paintings for that and what you see above is a small portion of the second painting.

I have an unhealthy obsession with Candy Corn Monsters.
 What else have I been up too finishing?  That guy.  Candy Corn is back for 2012 as a plush/stuffed animal.  I started conceptualizing him back in June, but finished him off for real last week.  I posted it over on the Fan Page and in the Crypt of DOOM!  So if you find yourself in need of more snazzy photos, go check him out in either spot.

I ran ALL over town trying to find a suitable sealant for my coasters.  Finally found a spray polyurethane (man does it STINK), but sadly the paint has to cure for a week if I don't want it to stick to the bottom of the glasses.  Still have to conduct a heat test, but the cold test on the sample that dried a week went pretty well.  I might just have to have a spot of tea.  No pics, you'll just have to take my word for it.

And lastly, Journal entries.  I tried catching up on the month of July.  Time always goes way too fast.

San Diego Comic-Con Re-cap. . . the 12th is missing, but believe me, it was just like the 11th and 13th, only with out getting the toys.

Carlos got a summer cold.  He's horrible when he's sick.
