Thanks so much for sharing your project and you do have a very cool blog.

CuddlyBunny said...

Your artistic skills are amazing! Love the paintings (Vincent or not they're GREAT) ... and your molded pieces are so cool!

lachsekatze said...

Your painting of Vincent Price looks ten thousand times more realistic than my attempts. At the end, I had to draw the invisible man. But because you mentioned it I would say that the man of the painting reminds me of a merge of Vincent Price and with some features of Salvador Dali except for the moustache.
And we all know that Vincent Malloy is a huge wannabe Vincent Price. I totally love this film.

Jenn Borjeson said...

You girls all TOTALLY ROCK. Awesome projects!

ldfdesign said...
