Master_Nick-Angel_Kitty4Where did we leave off?

Oh yes…

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through,
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack! Continue reading

Master_Nick-Angel_Kitty3He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

goddesses-monsters4webSo, the Burlesque in Wonderland show just closed. A well-entertained audience has stepped back out through the looking-glass. It’s 4:AM and I’m still up on my freaky vampire/artist schedule. Is it crazy that I’m still listening to a playlist I’d burned for the Wonderland show?

Nay, not when stacked alongside any other measure of madness.

Between painting and rehearsing for this last show, I’ve haven’t had a good day’s sleep in weeks. I could be resting now, but there are upcoming exhibitions (and exhibitionism) to consider! Continue reading

The Walrus and The Carpenter

Posted in Art, Burlesque, Events, Fantasy, Illustration with tags , , , , , , , , on April 9, 2014 by Master Nick

Master_Nick-WlrsCrpntr4webThe Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
“If this were only cleared away,”
They said, “it would be grand!”

“If seven maids with seven mops
Swept it for half a year.
Do you suppose,” the Walrus said,
“That they could get it clear?”
“I doubt it,” said the Carpenter,
And shed a bitter tear.

Excerpt from “Through the Looking Glass (And What Alice Found There)”
– Lewis Carroll

In honor of this Saturday night’s Burlesque in Wonderland performance, I’m releasing hitherto unavailable art as prints. It’s about time, too! I finished the above illustration over a year ago! I get so caught up in creating the next work that many completed pieces are left utterly neglected.

There, there, creepy carnivorous characters. We still love ya!
