Disney fan art by Elf-in-mirror

A brief departure from my Hallowe’en inspired postings; while on one of my regular hauntings of DeviantArt, I came across some pretty Disney inspired art by Elf-in-mirror.

I do enjoy Disney films, and I do find it interesting seeing different twists on the characters, particularly when the art gives a more adult characterisation.

Considering the number of Beauty and the Beast inspired images of Belle, it’s safe to say that this character is Elf-in-mirror’s favourite to digitally realise, and I can understand why. I really like the gothic twists. You can’t go wrong with a good corset,

I’ll be checking back often for new paintings!

Wonderfully Witchy postcard art by Jess Purser

Thanks to a friend very thoughtfully posting a picture of this postcard on my Facebook page, I now have a lovely 10 pack of these Hallowe’en witch and black cat postcards right next to me as I type this.

They’re created by Jess Purser and sold on her Etsy store, Castle on the Hill, along with lots of other fabulous witchy themed postcards, cleverly painted on pages of literature.

These paintings are wonderfully quirky and unique, and I was really impressed with the quality of the postcards.

I definitely need to add to my new collection!

Do check out her Etsy store for other lovely postcards inspired by Alice in Wonderland, Jane Austen and 1950s France, or contact Jess to discuss a custom order!

The Fantasy Art of Molly Harrison

Image

The fantasy art of Molly Harrison is quite a new discovery for me, and a very exciting one, at that. Lots of boxes are being ticked, but since I’m in Hallowe’en mode at the moment, I shall stick to her Hallowe’en witches.

Image

Her witches are wonderfully colourful, always with a trusty cat familiar.

Image

There’s something about the eyes in her subjects, they really draw you into the image. Bewitching, you might say! :p

Image

I hope Molly will create a book of her art. I would love to be add her images to my collection of art books.

Image

This is what I love about Hallowe’en. It’s a beautiful time of year. The colours of Autumn are amazing and I love seeing all the things I love about the season reflected in beautiful pieces of fantasy and gothic art.

Image

Molly has an extensive Zazzle Store where you can purchase merchandise featuring her art.

Enjoy!

Lisa Marie Art & Illustration

Image

I have a real soft spot for this image by Lisa Marie Robinson. I got this as a greeting card around Hallowe’en. It hadn’t been very long since the sad passing of my beautiful little black and white cat, Arwen. When my husband and I exchanged Hallowe’en cards for our annual party, we also wrote a message in this card for my Arwen. It brought me a little comfort.

Lisa Marie’s Hallowe’en cat greetings cards are so cute and funny.

Image

You can buy her greetings card and other merchandise from her Zazzle Store.

Cyra R. Cancel

Image

I first became aware of Cyra R. Cancel‘s art when I bought my husband one of her greetings cards for Hallowe’en.

Image

I love black cat art, especially as I have two gorgeous black cats myself, and I was immediately attracted to her beautiful big eyed cats and owls.

She uses coloured pencils and glitter, so her images have a wonderful texture.

Image

She has a whole series of Hallowe’en themed art. Her cats and owls are so cute, especially when they’re donning witch hats and capes!

Image

Image

Her images can be purchased on her Zazzle Store on t-shirts, greetings cards, mugs and more!
