Anatomy with a touch of Vintage

His name is Christopher Elsasser and he runs his Etsy shop under the name munstre (pronounced Mun-stir). Most of his work is inspired by anatomy which, if you've ever visited my own Etsy shop, you'd know I've got a slight obsession with :)

Since starting in February 2008, Chris has already been featured in a couple gallery's, shops and even Juxtapoz Magazine.

You can also keep an eye out for his art in the upcoming Bruce Willis flick entitled "The Surrogates" ... I'd say hes doing very well for himself.

Hooray for Face Paint!

I've been on the hunt and I will admit that its difficult to find the right shade of eye shadow for the right price. I like em bright and able to withstand a late night of whatever-ness. If your like me then it looks like there's hope for us lot.

While creeping in the forums I heard nothing but good things about coffincolor, so naturally I took a peek... The verdict? I'm very impressed with their price, shades and sense of humor! They have a range of colours with names like "Trailer Park Blue", "MMM... Brains!!" and "Gold Toof". Also as an added bonus they've included some very gorgeous, suicide girl-like ladies sporting their product.

If your a BUST Magazine reader be sure to pick up the current copy to see a feature on this lovely Etsy seller.

Creeptacular Findings

These next pieces of digital art were created by artist and Etsy member Denise Lecusay. Although they are not sold off Etsy, they most defiantly deserve a spot on this blog for their creative darkness. I hope you love them as much as I do.

This first one is probably my favorite with its eerie yet subtle extra limb:

These two take a close second. Note the ribcage corset created by Etsy seller louiseblack.

The colours are so rich in this last one. The classic red and black tiles mixed with the red really make this piece pop!

Calling All Torontonians!

There are many talented artists/crafters in this city and although the weird ones get their own show in the gladstone, not all of them can afford it. This year Ms. Creepy Christine decided to change that and introduced a brand new fair called "Bazaar of the Bizarre".

"featuring artists, clothing designers, publishers, craft-folk and other independent makers of all things exotic and macabre"

I'm very excited about this one!!

A Big Thank You

I've been away for a while. First it was because I needed to find a place to live come October and then it was a lack of an internet connection at my new digs. No internet was tough cookies... but thankfully I'm back now. I just wanted to thank the loyal droppers, commenter's and anyone else who has been popping in while I was away.

Thanks guys :)
