There's something to be said about watching twisted shit on American Horror Story while gently painting cute little gingerbread person ornaments. I have too many projects for my mind to organize and conceptualize, but here I am pretending to put icing on cookies (paint on ceramic).
My usual designs I'm drawn to are turning handsome nutcrackers into vampires and pumpkin lords, then, in the future, killer clowns and zombies.
Not these guys. Granted, these are ornaments I'm painting for my mother, and she certainly would never have asked for bleeding and necrotic gingerbread people.
I have been enjoying blurring the line between aspects of Halloween and Christmas. Most notably, my nutcrackers designed not only for Halloween/Samhain but also those who enjoy a spooky Christmas/Yule. Maybe I have finally found my niche? It's a seasonal niche, but I can build on it the rest of the year.
'Tis the season. Let's get weird. 🎄👻
