Blue Beard's Bride
9X12 Mixed Media on Stonehenge Paper
It had been the craziest month in my life so far. The craziest! To my shame, I am hardly ever this busy. I signed up for many shows and they all happen to be on July. Four shows in July!! On top of those, illustration projects flew in. Can a mere human being pull this off? Yes, yes she can. I'm the living proof of it. Bags under my eyes, bloated from sitting all day everyday and acne... Oh I paid dearly. Worst of all, I had to cancel ever anticipated camping to Algonquin this week with friends. I'm all alone in Toronto.
There are loads of new illustrations I should be posting, but I've been too busy. So please visit again in the near future.
This week I'm participating on the "We Made a Deal with the Devil" show. Here is the road show website:
The show will be on the road for a month, from Toronto to Halifax!

One of the things that greatly effected my childhood (along with Aliens, Terminator, etc.) was the tale of Bluebeard. Such a strange story possibly inspired by a serial killer, Giles de Laval. The story book - now banned in children's section - used to give me a lot of nightmares. I always wanted to do something with this story, so here it is. I plan to do series of large pieces based on this concept.
'Vevare, Ve Very Vare' is Bela Lugosi's line.
After I submitted this piece, a friend told me 'be ware' is one word. FML.
