Halloween and Vine - Here I Come!!!!

It's official! Chicken Lips will be at the 2010 Halloween and Vine show in Petaluma, CA -Sept. 25! To be invited as an exhibiting artist to this prestigious show is a real honor.

The venue showcases the "best of the best" in Halloween folk art and to think that I will be selling right along side the "big boys and girls" of the industry just makes me giddy with excitement!

I know it's still 7 months away, but I've got to get cracking on making some stellar pieces!

Visit the show web site for more info. Hope to see you there!

Sneak Peak

This Friday is the February update on Spookytime Jingles. It is also a Holiday Hootenanny, which means that many of the participating artists will be offering Easter-themed art as well as the usual Christmas and Halloween. I decided to not only offer Easter, but Halloween as well...both combined in the same piece! Here's a sneak peak at "Howard the Halloween Bunny."

In addition to Howard, I will be offering several Springtime-themed pieces. Be sure to drop by the 13th at midnight (EST).

Homer and the Angry Carrot

I'm always amazed where my ideas come from. Often times they seem to come from right out of the blue, completely without notice.

The other day I was talking on the phone and doodling on my workbench (which is always covered in butcher paper for just such an occasion). I subconsciously drew an angry carrot! I have no idea why. The conversation I was having had nothing to do with vegetables and I certainly wasn't in a foul mood. But whatever the reason, when the conversation was over I was looking down at a carrot with attitude! Well, that's all I needed to get the ball rolling on making my newest creation.

Meet "Homer and the Angry Carrot."

This duo is sculpted from papier-maché and paperclay. Painted in acrylics with oil paint details. This is the first of several bunnies I'm finishing up.

Homer is available for purchase on my ETSY shop.

UPDATE: Homer has just SOLD (THANK YOU!)!!! But stay tuned for more bunnies appearing here and on my ETSY shop soon!
