Snakes & Toads & Women

Spurred on by my sudden flood of inspiration to create things, I started making these neat vintage collages.  I take illustrations collected from old books and I Photoshop them to make these fantastic, strange and funky art pieces.

I talked about the above work, Cup of Creation here.

 

Wildlife and Women are meant to show Mother Nature caring for animals, sometimes holding them like a child.  Which really resonates with me ever since I had my baby boy (and definitely my Muse).  BUT, mostly, they are just a blast to make, old fashioned women with snakes and snails; its just interesting.

For most of these images I was listening to some of my favorite podcasts, Just a Story, Talk Nerdy, Myths and Legends, and a new one The Monster Guys.  I recently made a list of awesome podcasts at my other blog for writing here. Man there are some high quality, fascinating shows out there and they are oh-so addictive and the perfect thing for creating (or spring cleaning, drinking, relaxing, gardening, suntanning etc)

One last thing, these prints are up at my Threadless store, available on a wack of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing. Please go check it out!
