New Greetings Cards

I’ve had some new cute greeting cards made from the images of my Halloween makes… They’re A6 size on lovely silk coated 350gsm paper, and are blank inside – so you can use them for any occasion, write your own messages (probably a good idea if you send Claude’s abusive one!), or just to send long distance love and hugs and words of encouragement during these weird times! They are available in my etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop/samscuriouscreatures

My drawlloween Makes

For this year’s 2020 drawlloween I also created a new type of curious creatures…which are needle felted or needlefelted with polymer clay heads. Because I had so much fun making them, I will be continuing with these new sorts of creatures in the future! Here are the ones I made for drawlloween (all are now sold)

Drawlloween 2020

These are my drawings for this year’s 2020 mabsdrawlloweenclub

They are available to buy in my etsy shop– prints coming soon too!

Buy original drawings and prints

Yokai… Futakuchi onna and her little amabie friend – the amabie is a healing yokai who said “if there’s an epidemic draw a picture of me and show me to those who fall ill and they will be cured” perfect for right now!

Cat Lore and other Superstitions exhibition

I am so excited to be exhibiting two pieces in the Cat Lore and other Superstitions exhibition at the fabulous Inverarity gallery. The first one is a framed graphite drawing, and the second one is a 3d sculpt of the drawing on a wooden plaque, which has a hook on the back to hang it from a wall.

R is for Reaper

I am so excited to be exhibiting in the end of year Bad Apple exhibition ‘A is for Apple’ at the AMAZING Inverarity Gallery this November….I was given the letter RπŸ™ŒπŸ‘»πŸ–€ and decided to make my La Morte drawing come to life (with an art doll and horse) – because R is for Reaper, of course!

R is for Reaper…
Ooak art doll.
She is a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a needle felt over wire torso. Her outfit is a mix of new and recycled fabrics, with crochet chainmail and armour created from a mix of jewelry findings.

Her crown is metal decorated with a polymer clay skull, and has a black and gold veil attached to the back.

Her unicorn horse is also a mix of air dry and polymer clay over a wire frame, with a clay saddle decorated with metal jewelry findings.

Her scythe is a mix of wood, clay , fabric and resin. The base is wooden, and decorated with air dry and polymer clay skulls and flowers. To the top of her scythe she’s approximately 60cm tall.
