Day of the Dead Needle Felt

Run Red Run Day of the Dead Dia de los Muertos Needle Felt Needle FeltedI have a special fondness for Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos holiday.  Maybe it’s because it’s so close to Halloween (my favorite holiday), maybe it’s because skeletons are creepy. I like creepy.

To honor the festival in my own way, I’ve sculpted a calavera… technically, she’s a my interpretation of the Catrina figures that are popular in Mexican culture.

To add a layer of spookiness I went to a local graveyard to snap some of these photos.  I think that they turned out nicely.  You can see more of them in the gallery!

If you like the figure, I hope to have her up for purchase soon at my Etsy shop, RunRedRunShop.

Run Red Run Needle Felted Grim Reaper Death

Well gang, my time with SpookyTime Jingles is winding down. This is my last month working with the great ladies at STJ. My latest project, the Grim Reaper, will be for sale at spookytimejingles.com until 2/12/12. Check it out.

What does my leaving STJ mean? It just means that I’m busy at home and work. I’m still needle felting though. I have a project in the works right now. I won’t go into too much detail yet, but I will tell you that it’s the sort of creature you’d seeing running across the English moors in the full moon light. I’ll show you soon.

I’m also focusing on commission work. So, if there’s something special you’d like for yourself or for a gift, get in touch with me and we’ll work out an arrangement!

Needle Felted Grim Reaper

Run Red Run Needle Felted Grim ReaperAAAAHHHHH! It’s here again! You know, that creepy time each month when STJ updates its product selections! AAAAAAHHHHH!  I don’t know if I can stand the suspense of waiting until midnight Jan 13th to see all of the awesome new artwork up for sale. Well, in case you’re as impatient as I am, I’m giving you a little sneak peek at what I’m offering for sale this month.

Say hello to my little Grim Reaper!
Based on artwork by illustrator Vince Dorse (check out the design on his blog), this needle-felted fiend solemnly wanders the globe, or maybe just your mantle, collecting its dues…

If you would like to purchase this guy, head over to SpookyTime Jingles to get all the info.  Also, check out my gallery or Flickr page for more photos!

Needle Felted Zombie and Day of the Dead Skeleton For Sale!

Wow! Has it been a whole month already? Where does the time go?  Well, as you know, the 13th of the month is that magical time when SpookyTime Jingles gets a total update with all kinds of awesome new artwork!

So, at midnight on November 13th I’ll be placing not one, but two custom-made one-of-a-kind needle felted dolls on sale! The two pieces I’ve created this month are a brain-munching zombie and, to honor the Dia de los Muertos celebration observed on November 1 and 2, a Day of the Dead inspired skeleton.

For some reason I keep thinking that perhaps the zombie was an accountant in his former life. And maybe his name was Frank. But he’s dead now, or rather UNdead, and looking for brains. Speaking of brains, the design for the zombie came straight from my brain to the wool… so, there are no working sketches this time.

Ichabod Crane Gets Needle Felted

With Halloween in the air I thought it would be a good time to put up photos of my Ichabod Crane art doll.  Inspired by the story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow by Washington Irving and designed by illustrator Vince Dorse, Ichabod is one of my favorites… and a great companion piece for the Headless Horseman & Daredevil figures I made.  Along with the design sketch posted below, you can see Ichabod, running for his life from the clutches of  the Headless Horseman on Vince’s home page and in his gallery.
