September Update

Loyal Order of the Black Cat giclée print, new for Halloween 2016

Bye-bye summer, Helllooooo fall! What a complete blur that was...glad it's over so we can get straight to Halloween now ;)

I've got quite a few updates so let's get started:

First up! Chimichanga issue one from Eric Powell and myself is due out NEXT MONTH, October 12th (Dark Horse Comics)! Yes! Finally, after what seems like forever and a day, I'm on the last book and we're ready to rock and roll. Four issues of painted creepy-cute, bizarre sideshow goodness will be out on stands between Oct-January 2017.

Lots and lots new prints and pieces over at Pinup Girl Clothing coming up. My new Astrology print was released over the summer months and I was lucky enough to work on their 2016 Halloween collection, which is absolutely amazing and mind blowing (go look now if you haven't already!). If you know me, you know I'm freaking out inside about being able to contribute to this collection! We went with a vintage inspired Halloween theme for the art and textile designs I created-I'm very proud of this collection and how it turned out! Below are a few pieces from the collection featuring my Halloween Lantern print and Pumpkin Patch border print-be sure to visit the Pinup Girl Clothing website for a full scope of the prints and pieces available, there are quite a few (and stay tuned, the new kid's line is coming soon and it's ADORABLE!)...

And last but not least, I've been dropping a few new art prints and fun little items in my online shop, just time for Halloween! At the very top of the post is a brand new giclee' print, Loyal Order of the Black Cat, released for the upcoming holiday. I'll also be adding some smalls and fun item's like sticker packs and pin packs-a few photos below! 

Wishing everyone a very happy fall season, thanks for stopping by! xo

Music Print collab with PUG!

Had to do a quick post and share-one my newest collab prints with PUG for 2016 was just released yesterday! Their Jenny skirt and dress is now available with my music novelty border print and it's a cute one! Now available at, in sized XS-3X ♥ I'll be sure to post as the others are released xo

New things and Spring update

Tiny WIP Peek at painted interiors for the new
Chimichanga books Eric Powell & myself are working on!
Been busy busy getting some new things worked up and throwing paint around on fifty million things! The past months have been a balancing act for sure (what else is new), not too many actual art updates I can share just yet, as the majority of my painting work has all been channeled into the new Chimichanga books for Dark Horse Comics (hopefully an update on the release dates soon!). Some cover painting work and new textile designs for 2016 for Pinup Girl clothing have also been on my plate-along with any time I can smuggle for personal work!

I've got some new things out and some cool collaborations in the works that I hope to announce soon. First up-I've got some new prints on the way, but in the mean time, new scarves and small accessory items are now available in my Etsy shop . Below is a peek of a Blast Off! pattern available in both and ...and maybe as a few other items I can share soon, as well ;)

 My partner in crime (and incredibly talented designer), Rob, collaborated with me on a few new T-shirt designs. We took a couple of my sideshow character designs I had painted a little while back and gave them some new life. They came out so fun! A few photos below, they can all be found at my in Threadless Artist Shop available in a range of sizes and styles for Women, Men and even kiddos :)

Lots more to update, I'll be sure to post here as well as my instagram account as soon as things start being released. Until then, lots of painting and gardening prep will be keeping me busy-wishing everyone a happy Spring! :)

Threadless Artist Shop, now open!

After lots of requests for T-shirts, excited to share that I've opened up an Artist Shop over at Threadless! A small handful of designs are now up for grabs, I'll be adding more to the shop over the next couple of months. xo

Happy 2016!

Happy New Year! 

Now with the holidays over, it's been full speed ahead into 2016. It was a working holiday for us this year (with the exception of a much needed break on X-Mas Eve and NYE, which we spent with family and friends)-but a good head start has been made and 2016 is looking for be a really great year for us so far. Lots of things being released and some new things in the go: new patterns and collab projects happening as well. So, yay!

Some updates while I catch my breath-firstly, so happy to share the new website! My talented husband worked his magic and made a bunch of changes over at and I have to say, it's looking pretty darn spiffy. A few more things to do, but it's pretty much all there. I'm really excited to have a designs and jewelry section now, which I'll be able to update more frequently with current things I'm making alongside my painting and illustrations.

New scarves are happening and in the works and FINALLY some new jewelry. It's been a short while since I've added new items over at the Kitschy Witch shop, keep an eye out-new things are being added pretty often now! I've been dreaming up lots of new pieces while working, jotting down ideas and hoarding supplies. As much as I detest the cold season and not being able to do any gardening, it's given me a tiny window of time per week to stay inside and work on some of my own things (aside from painting), like some new jewelry designs and textile patterns. Slowly chipping away at a new fortune teller silk scarf design and a new collection of brooches. A peek below at one of my vintage inspired hand brooches, coming next month.

Above is a small portrait piece painted around the holidays. A fast attempt to simplify and make a few changes to my painting approach for work that needs to be done and handed in fast. It's currently been difficult to get any free time to do these small experiments with my work load, but hoping to make more time to do this type of work later in the year. It's become a bit of a goal to make more selfish "me time" this year-to learn more technique and create for myself. These little creative burst breaks, even if it's an hour or so, are so important-I can't stress that enough.

Enough babble-Back to work! Wishing everyone a very happy and healthy 2016! xo
