Last summer in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, where some of the inspiration for my recent sea-inspired jewels came from. 🖤 I’m currently packing the last few orders that were placed before yesterday morning’s deadline to be shipped today. They’ll all be dropped at the post office soon! Tonight, for the first time in almost 15 years, I fly off to Ireland. No place, with the exception of my hometown, has had more of an influence on my life, my identity, and my artwork. I can’t quite articulate how excited I am to revisit familiar corners of the country and explore new ones, soak up the inspiration, and celebrate my and @pjstockcrew 42’s 6th anniversary. Expect loads of stories and photos both here and on my personal page @kerinskali ! As I explained yesterday, all orders placed after yesterday morning through 9/9 will ship 9/9. New collection info coming soon as well! Happy Thursday, everyone! ✨ #soliloquyjewelry ...
A Gorey Demise. Inktober day 1.
I battled daily for the last few weeks on whether or not I was gonna tackle another inktober this year and what the subject matter would even be. For the past few years I've tried to be the obscure beacon of mental health awareness and hope to help someone out there struggling with their mental well being.
To be honest it took a toll on my own mental health.but now so many artists, both new and old, are carrying that torch of mental health depictions through dark art that I feel comfortable taking a break from it this October.
So this year I decided to dig into my childhood loves and pay tribute to a series that I adored. Edward Gorey's Gashlycrumb Tinies.
So sit back, and relearn the ABC's with me and let's kick off #inktober2019 together.
