New discovery

Over the christmas holiday I was browsing the interweb, and found a wonderful artist called Kristen Ferrell. She is my new love for illustrating, and her work is amazing! I cannot describe how brilliant her work is, check her out. These are my sketches from her work.

So chris bought be a tim burton book "the melancholy death of oyster boy and other stories". Utter love. Tim burton, I'm almost sure of it, is a genius. This is his 'voodoo girl'.

Her skin is white as cloth,
and she's all sewn apart
and she has man coloured pins
sticking out of her heart.

She has a beautiful set
of hypno-disk eyes,
the ones that she uses
to hypnotize guys.

She has many different zombies
who are deeply in her trance.
She even has a zombie
who was originally from France.

But she knows she has a curse on her,
a curse she cannot win.
For if someone gets
too close to her,

the pins stick farther in.
