Shop of the Week: BlueMaiya.etsy.com

Artist Anna Young, professionally known as “Maiya”, started painting with watercolors at the age of 3. Her exposure to and fascination with art came from watching her father, Larry Young, in his studio, immersed in piece after piece of his own.

In her twenties, Maiya began utilizing new techniques and mediums, including acrylic, sculpture, mixed media, and even live body arts shows as tools for healing, as well as expressing her interests in world spiritualities, religions, mythologies and archetypes, often drawing upon both the Celtic and Native American sides of her heritage for inspiration. In the year 2000 she began developing an idea for a multimedia graphic novel entitled Fas Ferox: a modern-day mythology, incorporating the archetypal ideas and philosophies that she had been cultivating since childhood. She is producing this project with world-renowned writer Neil Gaiman as Creative Consultant, and working with a collective of extremely brilliant artists of various mediums. Currently, a World Walkthrough of the series is available online: www.lulu.com/fasferox ... Read more here.

Shop of the Week: GrandOleBestiary.etsy.com

The Grand Ole Bestiary is a collection of faux-antique, anthropomorphic, mythological curios. Each one carefully recovered from ancient catacombs buried deep inside the molten core of a metaphysical holy mountain.
The Grand Ole Bestiary is one of the most compelling archives of evidence proving the enduring existence of these magnificent creatures that have been worshiped and damned by human civilizations throughout history,

Static the Zombigurumi

I did a trade a while ago with the lovely Dr. Igora Fauxbia, of the Zombigurumi Love Lab. Now I know what I will look like if I ever become zombified! Sorry I don't have a full body picture but my workroom has been a disaster until recently and I just couldn't wait any longer to post about my Zombigurumi.

Some of the details might not be obvious at first glance, but believe me, they are just perfect. Dr. Fauxbia got my curly black hair obviously but my nose ring, double labret (in silver thread, no less) and black plugs are there too. Love it! The dangling eyeball and scratches are such a great touch.

Thanks again for the trade, Dr. Fauxbia!

Shop of the Week: NoxHyde.etsy.com

I'm a reticent recluse who spends most of my time tucked into my dwelling, often working through the night like a spider spinning. I like gardening, psychological horror, philosophy and creative writing and design. I love to observe the seasons in my work!
Everything of mine is made meticulously by hand with attention to detail.

Shop of the Week: IllustratedInk.etsy.com

My name is Leila, and I've been a full time artist since 2006. Most of my creations are inspired by "Day of the Dead", traditional tattoo design, and folk art from around the world. I love color! Catholic icons and symbolism influence much of my work. I put a lot of love and effort into each of my one-of-a-kind pieces. It brings me so much joy to create art everyday! I reside in Austin with my sweetheart, 2 kitties, and a Corgi. :)

Things I adore: carnivals, my Jeep with the top off, thrift shopping, writing actual letters, watermelon, snuggling with my kitty that's soft as a bunny, stacks of musty books, Christmas lights, all birds, old cathedrals, Mexican Coke in a glass bottle....

Shop of the Week: MacabreCreations.etsy.com

As you can tell by the name this is a store that offers items that are unique, unexpected, and on occasion … just plain macabre. I am intrigued by the unknown, the bizarre, and the odd.
As an artist, I am inspired by deviations that occur in nature, things that are “magical”, sights that evoke emotion, and (more often than not) whimsical imagery.
It is very likely that if you share my curiosity for something that is truly strange, you will find the perfect addition to your collection here.

Shop of the Week: GunterGothique.etsy.com

I paint and block print, along with jewelry making and crafts. I lean towards the dark, and am enamored with trees, wildlife and the human form. And things that make me laugh. I hope you find something you like, and I welcome requests.
