Shop update!

I recently added several new critters to the Goblinfruit Studio shop,
including these friendly little mandrakes!

Said to spring from the ground below that of a hanged man, the mandrake root is known for its distinctive human-like shape and ear-piercing scream when pulled from the ground (which is capable of killing the unfortunate soul gathering it). While folklore states a Mandrake should be bathed in milk or wine and wrapped in silk to keep it satisfied, ours are a bit more low-maintenance and just appreciate some stimulating conversation and cake every now and then.

Beastly Beings

We are barraged on a daily basis through social media and news sites by opinions, vitriol, snark and drama all contributing to a less than kind environment. The US news is rife with election foolishness and nastiness from both the left and right. We see and compare ourselves to our friends Facebook pages which are, for the most part, carefully groomed to present the best picture possible, causing us to feel despair at not doing more, being more, experiencing more.

We need more empathy, less envy. Let’s try to judge others less and enjoy ourselves for who we are, not what we think we should be.

“Envy” and “Empathy”  for Cactus Gallery’s “Beastly Beings” show opening May 14th.

The Zealot’s Elixir

The Zealot's Elixir

Now showing through March 7 at Modern Eden Gallery, “The Zealot’s Elixir”….a show focusing on snake oil salesmen, false prophets and hope for the lost. My piece, “Shining Apples” (inspired by the song of the same name on the “Tales from the Black Meadow” album by The Soulless Party) is on display with a collection of amazing works. To view the exhibition online check it out here!

A few photos of my contribution to the show.
