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!

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!

My Eclectic Mind: The Art of Heather Gleason

image

It’s September, which means I’m officially giddy for Hallowe’en.

So, in order to draw out the excitement as much as possible, I’m going to be updating my blog with Hallowe’en themed art. Yay!

Let’s begin with Heather Gleason….

image

I love the traditional colours and spooky scenes. They’re so unashamedly Hallowe’en. Perhaps I’m too paranoid but I often feel like I’m perceived as being silly or childish for loving Hallowe’en the way that I do.

image

On her gorgeous website, Heather shares her experiences of dealing with schizophrenia, and I think it’s great that she can channel that into her wonderfully weird and atmospheric images.

image

Black cats, bats, cemeteries, witches, skeletons and ghosts; her images are an eerie celebration of the weird and wonderful.

image

With my love of fantasy and gothic art books, you can imagine how pleased I was that Heather has released a book of her Hallowe’en art.

image

It looks like the perfect Hallowe’en companion. I hastily ordered myself a copy and I’m just waiting for it to hit the doormat.
