They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky, they’re all together ooky, and now their home has been splendidly recreated using paper. Los Angeles-based artist Alan Ronay of Everyday Miniatures made this beautiful papercraft model of the interior of the Addams’ wonderfully spooky mansion from the 1960s tv series.

"I made the effort to capture the mood of the set using texture and shadows and by reproducing the set decoration as faithfully as possible. I used a slightly purple tint to give it that 1960s CRT nostalgia feel."

Ronay’s handmade model comes with paper standees of Gomez, Morticia, Lurch, and Cousin Itt and features a host of amazing details that made the Addam’s house so unforgettable, such as:

- You can see the shadow of Kitty Kat, the family lion, coming down the stairs.
- A portrait of Gomez’s business partner is hanging on the wall.
- Pierre the moose is hanging on the wall over the fireplace.
- Thing is popping out of a box on the harpsichord.
- Morticia’s peacock chair.
- Cousin Farouk is hanging on the wall.
- A copy of TV Guide with the Addams Family on the cover.

In addition to this one-of-a-kind piece, Ronay also created a downloadable DIY version that includes all the instructions and print files necessary to make your own scale model of the Addams’ Living Room, Stairs, Piano and character standees. All you’ll need is some paper, scissors, a printer, ruler, glue and a flesh-eating plant or two.

Okay, I may have just laughed at this so hard tears came to my eyes. Maybe.

In 1977 Vincent’s wife Coral Browne encouraged him to “Go stick your neck out.” and return to the stage in the one man show Diversions & Delights, based on the works and life of Oscar Wilde. For five years on and off Vincent would go on tour and give eight hundred performances in three hundred cities. 
"I believe my role as Oscar Wilde was my…great achievement as an actor. It was really extraordinary. It was the one time ever in my whole life when I completely, fell into the character. I was really able to escape into…the wit and brilliance of the man. A divine feeling." - Vincent Price 1992, via greggorysshocktheater.

This is pretty much how I imagine the Lady of the Manners.

A bat and a stuffed bunny? That’s Jilli, alright.

You’re not wrong.

These paintings have been stolen from a gallery in Seattle.  I am reposting this from this Facebook post about the theft, by request of a friend of the artist.  Please reblog this, especially if you are in the Seattle area.

ARTWORK STOLEN:

PLEASE Re-post/Share on your wall (especially Washington State residents). Thanks, for any help.

Four of my paintings from my most recent art show went missing and unfortunately, it seems somebody brazenly walked in, took them off the walls, and stole them. The paintings most likely disappeared sometime during the last weekend of April (maybe a day or two before I arrived to pick up my artwork this Sunday 4/27).

The paintings were displayed in Seattle in the main lobby of the:
OK Hotel
212 Alaskan Way S.
Seattle WA, 98104

(Otherwise known as OK Gallery during Pioneer Square artworks.) The building is secured with code/key entry only. I have filed a police report in Seattle, and an investigation is underway, by the police and management. $3,600.00 worth of paintings were stolen. Everybody please keep an eye out for them, especially in the Pioneer Square area, (you’ll recognize my style if you see them) they might be hanging on somebody’s wall right now, or for sale online somewhere. If you have any info about my four stolen paintings please contact me via Facebook Message, E-mail or call or text my phone.

E-mail: contact@divinemania.com
Phone: (Please call/text this number only if you have info about my missing paintings.)
425.971.4099

To the thief, if he/she sees this somewhere: I’m flattered that you liked my artwork so much, but you not only stole $3,600. worth of my artwork, you stole over 100 hours of my time and labor. You stole some of my favorite ‘children.’ If you return the paintings in the condition they were in when I had them hanging on the walls then I will not press charges and I will ask no questions. I simply want my artwork back, intact. The art world is competitive and difficult enough, but now I also have to worry about people who lack virtues, swooping in, and stealing over a month of my dedicated time, passion and labor? Shame on you for stealing from a poor artist. Contact me, return the artwork, and no questions will be asked and no charges will be filed against you.

The artworks are shown above:


"The Sun at Midnight"
Oil on Canvas, 24”, 30”

"The Language of The Birds"
Oil on Canvas 24”, 36”

"Into crumpled paper, hope had collapsed."
Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”

"…Our dreams lay still, one wing clutching at air."
Mixed Media on Canvas, 30”, 30”

Please re-post/share this on your wall. Thanks for the help everyone, and hopefully I will have my paintings returned.

I don’t understand these kinds of crimes. Why would you want to hang art on your wall by an artist who fucking hated you?  Do people think artists are rich, that they deserve to be punished by having their work stolen? And why is the gallery so insecure and unobservant as to let multiple, large paintings just walk out the front door?

My very first gallery show was when I was 12 years old.  It wasn’t a school thing or a scholarship contest, it was a real gallery, albeit a small one, above a vintage clothing store in my hometown.  After commissioning a chalk pastel drawing of the Lady Godiva from me, a middle-aged man tried to haggle over the price ($60), and when I told him to go stuff his bullshit, he stole it from the gallery as soon as my back was turned.

So the kind of person who steals artwork from galleries, is the kind of person who cheats a 12-year-old girl out of a commissioned painting and then probably goes home and jerks off about it.  He had a college-aged daughter he tried to use as leverage against me, like maybe I would lower the price to impress her.

Reblog this, and remember these paintings.  When you see them on someone’s wall, you’ll know what kind of person they really are.

Signal boost.

I’m posting this partially because it’s a good reminder to myself about certain things, but mostly because I’ve been having recurring dreams of getting a version of this image tattooed on my left forearm. Thanks, brain, I know what my next tattoo is. Now help me on getting the steady income so I can get it.
