My Art Projects

This is a collection of all the artsy things I've been working on lately, with oldest at the bottom, newest at the top.

I prefer working on real leather, and use art markers purchased locally. I use clip-art and other free ideas around the web, including henna-inspired processes and old school tattoo designs, adding my own spin.  



November 2021 - The Tammy Jacket

I illustrated this in about a week in November, as a present for Tammy's 60th birthday.

"Friends in Fair-Weather and Foul."
Material - PVC/faux leather, with fabric under arms and down side. 

Permanent black Staedtler marker, plus Tombow alcohol-based paint-pens. 
Worn by me once here
Full detail and process pictures here
Tammy wearing it for the first time. 


November 2021 - Gold Wing Dress

This dress took about three weeks to finish, from October to mid-November.
Material - fleece-lined stretch PVC/faux leather. 

Pilot liquid gold ink pen.
Sadly, the gold ink flakes into dust when the material stretches. 
Modeled once, not worn (yet). Final reveal here, with links to previous details and process pictures. 


October 2021 - Snake Jacket 

Started in August 2021, finished in October. 
Materials: leather jacket (thrifted), plus new glass buttons. 

Permanent black Staedtler marker, plus Tombow alcohol-based paint-pens. 
Final reveal here, with links to previous process/details

Worn on the reveal day. 
And at least once since! 


August 2021 - Floralized Fluevog Listen Up O'Hares


I did these over a couple of weeks in August. 
Materials: Micron black permanent marker, Staedtler coloured markers, clear sealing spray

The shoes are too high for me to wear, so I had them signed by John Fluevog at a store event, then forgot about them. 
Now that they are illustrated, I stuffed them with black socks. 
And display them. 
First pictures here (including the link to when I had them signed by John Fluevog), and final reveal here
