Redd Walitzki’s “When We Break.”

Opening this Thursday, June 5th at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington is Redd Walitzki’s solo show, “When We Break.”  The mixed media paintings on laser cut panels depict ideas sparked from indie band Neutral Milk Hotel’s lyrics.  The resulting ideas have become visual metaphors for a sort of “sand slipping through fingers” belief that we are unable to hold onto others existence or completely ascertain our own place in the universe.

The pieces are created through a labor intensive process that involves photographing models for reference, sketching them in watercolor, transferring them to digital forms, printing them out and affixing them to laser cut panels and lastly, finishing the piece with oil paints.  You can see more below:

Huge thank you to supersonicart for sharing the work from my new solo show at Roq la Rue! Its been a long couple of months to get here, and its so magical to finally get to share it all! You can see all the work (and which ones are still available) through Roq la Rue Gallery

The RealHusband and I went to the opening of this, and it is AMAZING. Redd is an amazing artist, and if you’re able to get to Roq la Rue while this show is there, GO. 

I’m not asking for much! You to bring me coffee and cupcakes, and then turn me into a vampire! Not unreasonable requests at ALL.

Grump, grump, grump

A list of things I want right now:

  • A new b&w stripy blazer.
  • Writing motivation. (It doesn’t matter that I don’t have it right now, I’m going to write anyway.)
  • More coffee (which will happen soon), and a cupcake. Preferably delivered by Phantasmagoria-era Dave Vanian or Revenge-era Gerard Way, but just coffee and a cupcake would be good.

and of course, the usual things I want. To visit the Haunted Mansion, to see a bunch of my friends who don’t live near me, financial security, extra sleep, to just ascend already and take my throne as Vampire Witch Queen …  

Let me just mention how tickled I am that this was posted to goodnessyesgothiccharmschool with the tags “evil bunny alliance” and “the researcher”.Yes, good. You people understand, and Clovis APPROVES.

Mythological creatures around the world | Feyfolk
The Unseelie Court originates from Scottish mythology and is a dark counterpart to the Seelie Court. The Unseelie fairies appear in groups at night and harrass travelers by lifting them up in the air, beating them or forcing them to do acts of violence. However, some Unseelie fairies might become fond of a particular human and treat them almost like a pet.

Dear demons of bad moods and poor self-esteem:

NO. I refuse to let you drag me off to your lair today. I am giving myself red pandas to fight you.

A Victorian Lady’s finishing touch—the chatelaine. (From Wikipedia)

A chatelaine is a decorative belt hook or clasp worn at the waist with a series of chains suspended from it. Each chain is mounted with a useful household appendage such as scissors, thimble, watch, key, vinaigrette, household seal, etc.
Chatelaines were worn by many housekeepers in the 19th century and in the 16th century Dutch Republic,where they were typically used as watch chains for the most wealthy. Similar jewellery was also worn by Anglo Saxon women, as seen from the burial record, but its function is uncertain. The name chatelaine derives from the French term châtelaine

I want chatelaines to come back, and be useful and decorative for modern life. Bring back the tiny pens and notebooks! Create a smartphone holder!

Jillian Venters and I used to work together at Wizards of the Coast. I just unearthed a couple of employee photos from the early 90’s, and yes we still both have our devil bunnies.

magic girls urban witches

they grew up like grass through concrete cracks; trace the tracks of their veins and you’d find that they map out subway lines. breathing in smog and breathing out spells, they walk the streets at night, taking on the sins of the city that created them. their eyes reflect the glow of traffic lights and their souls are bound in steel and asphalt. a flick of their fingers, and the city would be ash.
