New art: Tattooed lady

Tattooed lady

Well, it’s actually not so new. I painted it on the cover of a Moleskine notebook when I was in San Francisco last summer and I just found it in my drawer and decided to scan it.

Original and prints available here.


New art: Callejon De Beso

Callejon De Beso

This painting will be the cover for a graphic novel that I’ve been commissioned to make. The graphic novel will be released in parts and each part will be accompanied by a perfume (the story is about perfume as well). It probably won’t be finished in months but I’ll get back with more info when I have it.

Prints available here.

I used to have an Etsy store, but when they wouldn’t accept my new credit card it was suspended and has been so for months. Now they’re finally accepting PayPal so my store is open again!

I will be selling things I’ve made other than paintings and drawings, like dolls and perhaps some clothing items. I’m also planning to sell some vintage clothing that doesn’t fit me. I will be adding more items over the next week so keep checking back if you’re interested!

(By the way, has anyone noticed what happens when you mouse over my blog header?)
