Be WERE (it isn’t just wolves anymore)

For my friend Draliman at https://dralimanonlife.com

This quick sketch is from a distant memory… don’t let it scare you.

THIS is an elusive Were-hamster.

And of course the lesser known Were-sockpuppet.

Five Minutes of Urban Fantasy (x 2 so that makes ten)

Urban Fantasy and Graphic Novels go hand in hand, like Hansel and Gretel without the witch, or maybe with the witch. OK with the witch.

Anyway…

I had a note pad, a pencil and a couple of minutes to spare today.

FIVE MINUTE GRAPHIC NOVELS.

I hope you feel enlightened by this experience.

Have fun.

Horror and Art from my Cold Undead Heart

I’ll be blunt.

I write stories. I draw cute little sketches.

I love you. Juliette drew this.

I love you.
Juliette drew this.

If you download and read a FREE Horror Anthology (not just my stuff, but a lot of really good stories) and leave a review, I will send you an original sketch drawn just for you with my cold undead hand.

As part of the WPaD (Writers, Poets and Deviants) writing group I am proud of what we do to support MS research and entertain the reading public at the same time.

This month (January 2016) our newest anthology Creepies 2: Things that go Bump Beneath the Bed, is FREE.

Creepies 2 - Best Horror Anthology of 2015

Creepies 2 – Best Horror Anthology of 2015

Yes, FREE.

From the twisted minds of Writers, Poets and Deviants:
Prepare for terror… and a few laughs as well.
– An exterminator meets his match in a family’s attic…
– A cuddly toy with a disturbing origin is all the rage…
– A boy’s survival of a deadly accident turns out to be more curse than miracle…
– A man asks a vampire for a favor and gets more than he wished for…
– A strange device collects and stores the rage from people bent on revenge…
– An exquisite chess set in an old pawn shop is more than it seems to be…
– A WW2 bayonet carries an evil history…
– An ancient vampire struggles with life in modern society…
– Something is alive in the outhouse…

Enjoy these chilling tales and more in volume 2 of WPaD’s popular Creepies series.
But leave the lights on…

I mean, it is a WIN/WIN for everyone.

So do this:

  • Let me know about it via email at juliettevampiremom@gmail.com
  • And I’ll draw you something fun and silly. Then I’ll send it to you either electronically or send you the REAL drawing. By the way the drawing might be worth millions one day so this is your chance to retire to that cabin in the woods or your dream house in Palm Springs.

Well except maybe possums eating bananas.

Even Vampires have feelings.

Gothic Tiles and Silly Sketches

Fine art.

I have the ability to create masterpieces that rival the paintings in great museums however, what I love to draw little bits and pieces on the fly. Fast images that capture an idea or a feeling or a moment or, more oftener not, a message. It makes me happy. And frankly it doesn’t take much to entertain me.

Last Friday I sketched out a birthday card in about 15 minutes for a friend to another friend. It was just fun. Nothing but silly fun. Ball point pen on paper sort of fun. Josh likes horror films and stories, and cats.

I was thinking about tiles a few weeks ago and tasked my alter ego from the parallel universe to make some.

The tiles are now listed for sale on Etsy. Click here to go to the page. 

 

So I guess the message today would be: Do what makes you happy.

Do it.

Color & Cut-out Modern Vampire Paper Dolls

Color and Cut-out Modern Vampire Paper Dolls

Set #1: Juliette and Clara

What could be more fun than paper dolls to get you started over the long weekend? Maybe a nice glass of wine and a good looking Vampire stud, but…

Tell Mr. Tall Dark & Handsome Vampire Stud to come back in a few hours – it is time to cut and color and have some creative fun! Crayons, pens, glitter, colored pencil all works great. Put tracing paper over the dolls and make your own make-to-fit outfits and design your own Halloween dresses and Fabulous Fall outfits!

Since my pens seemed to vanish into some sort of time warp or black hole or kid’s room – I’m just giving you quick pencil sketches today. And it will work fine after you get done with your fabulous coloring and embellishment!  You can draw in the faces too.

This is the first of several sets of Modern Vampire Paper Dolls featuring your favorite characters in my blog. Collect the entire set for hours of pre-Halloween fun!

My goal is to have more polished, stylized and a lot more “Gothic” designs in the future as part of Vampire Maman’s Countdown to Halloween.

So cut, color and PLAY!

Ideas with old Vampires, scraps of paper and strange young men.

Sometimes when I’m out and about I’ll make notes or sketches for blog posts. I was out seeing Lola the other day. She is an ancient thousand-year old Vampire who is the quintessential classic Vampire – you know the one who rocks the tight little black dress and the curls tumbling down her back and the F-me shoes. The one no guy can resist. Only yesterday she was wearing a little red sweater with white trim and a bow.

She’d had a man over for dinner. A young handsome one at that, but when I arrived he was still on the couch wearing nothing but a blanket. Thank goodness I didn’t bring the kids with me.

But in his defense, when a beautiful woman drains two pints of blood out of you then adds several hours of rigorous physical activity (you’re an adult figure it out) –  that wears a guy out. She was letting him sleep it off. His name is Sean and he works for the Federal Government and that is all I’m going to say for his privacy.  I guess he sees Grandmama Lola a few times a month. At least she has good taste. I guess he does too (you’d agree if you ever meet Lola.)

I was worried about Lola for a while due to serious injuries made by Vampire Hunters about a year ago, but she seems to be doing fine, at least physically. There a still a few scars and when she gets tired she might limp a little, but she’ll be over it all soon. Apparently Sean had no complaints. And of course he has no idea she is a lot older than he is or a Vampire.

And yes she does have a pet Armadillo – I kid you not.

Sketch idea for post with Lola and her Beef Cake or whatever.
