Awhile back I helped fund an artist's project on Kickstarter and got this really, really cool filigree skull.
I was pretty excited to find another project to fund after reading Jenny Lawson's irreverent (I can't think of a most perfect adjective here) blog. (OMG! I laugh hysterically every time! Beyonce, a story for another time!) A watercolor artist who lives in Oregon, Rachael Rossman had done a Dia de los Muertos portrait of Jenny and had submitted her project for funding to Kickstarter where she would paint your very own portrait from a photograph.
I HAD TO HAVE ONE!!!
A few months later, this arrived in the mail!!!
I LoVe it!!! I think the only thing I would have wished for is a background like the one done for MONKEY, which happened to be posted today on another of my favorite blogs, A Skull A Day.
You can see the other AMAZING DDLM portraits that Rachael has done in her gallery on her blog...
She painted a DDLM portrait of Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins for a Deviant Art contest that was ultimately judged by Tim Burton himself!
She does pets too!!!
But doncha just love Munkee? eeek!
