Box Troll Summer

     A couple months ago I finally got around to getting Netflix.  I know, doesn't sound like a big deal but I view Netflix as a modern day Pandora's Box.  Seems wonderful until you log in, then all your time disappears and suddenly it's 5 hours later and you have a list of 20+ movies and shows saved to your watch later list... so there goes your personal life, and any productivity you had planned for the next 2 months!

The silver lining to all this is I FINALLY got to see Box Trolls, and I am in love.  Is is such a beautiful movie, from the story to the visuals, beautiful.  So naturally I had to make a little Box Troll tribute!  Laika and all the people involved, you're amazing.

Hades Has A Mugshot

Hades has a mugshot and it ain't pretty!  Finished another addition to the villain mugshot series, the Lord of the Underworld.... Hades!

He is the master of outsourcing crimes, and having fabulous hair.  Hopefully the slammer won't give him split ends.


Stay tuned!  Coming soon I'll be posting a commissioned piece of Neverland I just finished!

Watercolor Cars For Summer!

So this past November my husband and I went down to Anaheim to see the Mecum Auto Auction and I went picture crazy with the cars.  So many beautiful classics!  So I've decided to start painting them... naturally.

Villain Mugshots!


Here's a look at a series I've been working on this year... Disney Villain Mugshots!  Inspired by Disney's villains.

It's all fun and games until someone gets arrested.

Celebrities have them... civilians have them... MUGSHOTS.  I don't know what it is about Googling mugshots but it's captivating!

What if our favorite childhood villains had mugshots and they popped up while you were frolicking around the interwebs?  I feel it would look a little something like this...

Once all the Disney villains are done I'll be expanding on to the wide array of villains that movies and  t.v. have to offer! Stay tuned!

OoO Baby It's Cold Outside... Seriously, it is

           'Tis the season!  Now that I am sufficiently stuffed with Thanksgiving goodness I have enough food to energize me to spend countless hours working on illustrations.  Challenge excepted!

Before I get too wrapped up in that, it isn't December until there is a tipsy reindeer.  So lo and behold the first reindeer of the season!  His drink of choice, martini!


I made this little guy as little thank you goodie for my Etsy orders, but of course I couldn't just leave it at that.  He had to move around with his drink a little...

It just makes me happy :)

Happy Holidays!

Announcing Her Royal Highness!

           The holding cell in the Land of Fantasy is getting crowded!

The newest member of the Disney Villain Jailhouse Rock Gang is her gloriousness... The Queen of Hearts!



I can only imagine how much of a hissy fit she'd throw confined in a small space with a bunch of other stubborn, snide, grouchy villains.  Endless hours of entertainment right there!

Feel free to hop over to My Shop to see the rest of the prisoners!

Up next ... Dr. Facilier
Here is a rough sketch of the early stages of his mugshot

He's got friends on the other side... of the BARS!

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone!
