As a creative person who works alone, I'm always very appreciative to receive positive feedback about my artwork. What's even more wonderful are the unanticpated emails from those who were inspired to create something entirely new and unique.
Recently, author Vera Greentea contacted me to tell me that she was inspired to write a story about a ghost girl after seeing my Calavera Catrinas. The adventures of ghost girl Nina, on a quest to find her family during Dia de los Muertos, is told in four parts, comic book style, and is fantastically illustrated by Laura Müller. The first two exciting installments are available via Greentea Publishing with more to follow (can't wait!).
Thank you very much for sharing, Vera and Laura :)
Halloween 2013 has come and gone and so it's time to wake up from this creative hibernation I've been in and start posting again. For those asking if I'm still creating dolls, yes I am and I'll be having a shop update in December with doll ornaments. More on that as the time comes.
In the meantime..I always post our Halloween costumes and this year Andres wanted to be the character Sam Flynn from his favorite movie Tron Legacy. We found his outfit online but Andres also wanted a light cycle and so Mark went about creating one using foam, shelf liner adhesive, EL wire, glow sticks, reflective tape, a plastic soda bottle and lots of glue sticks. Needless to say Andres was thrilled with the outcome..and already thinking about next year's costume.
And since it is El Dia de los Muertos, I thought I'd also share some Day of the Dead decorations we made for our home (instead of traditional Halloween ones). They're a little nod to our favorite Dia de los Muertos video "Viva Calaca" byRitxi Ostariz.
Have a wonderful weekend !

"Isela", one of my Calavera Catrinadolls I made in 2010, is on the cover of a new book by Guglielmo Scilla. L'inganno della morte is the author's first fantasy novel geared toward young adults. It will be available (in
Italian only) beginning May 8th. Thank you Kowalski/Giangiacomo
