Tribute to Alice & Finished Spoo-kins!

Hi everyone! I have lots to show you today! First off I have been working on some Alice in Wonderland illustrations, Spooky Hollow style! I bought this wonderful hand made paper journal and am filling it up with all kind of pen and ink illustrations, little watercolor paintings and so on. On the very first
page of this book are my little ink & watercolor doodles of Alice in Wonderland characters as I see them anyway! I posted a picture of Grimmy Reaper as the mad hatter on my facebook page and he got some laughs so I thought I need to post him here at my blog too! One thing I am working on is turning these illustrations into vintage style Easter ornaments and as soon as they are complete I will list them and post photos for you.
I also finished my new Spoo-kins! Each Spoo-kin is made of clay, hand painted and sealed. I will have them listed very soon in one of my shops either Ebay or Etsy I am not really sure which one yet lol.
Now the orange guy is Edgar. He is the only Spooky Hollow character besides the scared little art doll I made that has skin hehe! Edgar and the illustration behind him are the prize to the win Edar Spoo-kins contest. If you scroll down to my last post you can see how to win. Basically tell your friends about my blog or just post a comment and you will be entered to win Edgar, the illustration and a print of Grimmy Hatter!
Oh a real quick funny story before I list the photos. This morning my husbands dog B.B. ( He named him Beatle Baum...don't ask hehe ) was outside chasing around a deer. Well what B. B. didn't know was that deer had friends. I saw 3-4 pop out of the cornfield and then 2 more from the woods on the other side of the property. Before you knew it the deer were chasing B. B.! It was a sight and I so wish I would have grabbed the camera! Basically about 7 deer were very ticked off at one not very bright dog. Maybe you had to be there but it was like watching an Abott and Costello routine looool! are the photos and have a greaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat day!
Don't make the deer angry at our house because apparently they are short tempered and run in packs!

My version of the classic Alice in Wonderland characters!

The evil queen!


The mad Grimmy um I mean Hatter!

How cool is this journal? All the pages are hand made paper! Very thick and wonderful to illustrate on!
I am so into drawing my characters with pen and ink only! I love the look!

Now onto finished Spoo-kins!

There is a story behind the spider guy. His head was a bead I had made last year and I forgot to put a hole in it! So I thought why not add a clay butt and make it a spider like thingy ma bob!

I think I will call the blue guy Nemrac.....psst that is my name spelled backwards bahahahaha!
