Illustration Friday: Scary

The word for this week on Illustration Friday is SCARY. Did you know that you can actually stay at the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River, MA? It's a B&B. I've been trying to talk a few friends into going- but haven't had any takers- yet. You can check out the Inn HERE.

Sneak Peek

Got very very lucky--- was assigned to do Patio Furniture design for a very good client. 24 sets of furniture designs for a very well known retail client. Stay tuned. I'm just psyched I can add "Furniture Designer" to my repertoire.

Halloween is Magic

I'm a self-proclaimed scaredy-cat, but after years of designing Halloween Gift Product- Halloween has become my favorite holiday and I think New England is the best place to be!!

Although I'm not wearing a costume this year, I'm definitely wearing my giant spider headband.

Happy Haunting!

Illustration Friday: Scattered

Say hello to the very unfortunate Lady Jane Grey- the Nine Days Queen. During her short reign, Jane lived in the Tower of London. She was imprisoned there when the Privy Council proclaimed Mary as Queen in 1553. Jane was convicted of high treason and eventually beheaded at the age of 17 for her (falsified) crimes. She is regarded as a Political Victim and Martyr.

Her body was buried at the Chapel of St. Peter ad Vincula alongside Anne Boleyn- neither had a coffin and due to construction and relocation issues their bones lie scattered and mingled under a wall to the left of the alter. There is a plaque nearby on the floor noting the relocation of the bones.
