In his oven at R'lyeh gingerbread Cthulhu waits baking...

I know this doesn't have anything directly to do with my "work", but in a way it is my art.... Gingerbread art. And I don't know about you, but I like my art tasty.

Rich (of Lucky Bunny) and I made homemade gingerbread cookies from scratch. We quickly discovered that the cookie cutters weren't cutting it (Do you think puns are lame or not lame? Really? Me too.), so we made our own shapes.

Contrary to popular belief, Cthulhu is a great animal lover. Above he can be seen spending time with his close friend, Mr. Squirrel.

Here in the group shot you can see clockwise starting with Mr. Squirrel, Santa (one of the few surviving cookie cutter cookies), the Woman of Willendorf, Swampmop, T-Rex, a Puffer fish, heart, and Snargle who has enough icing on him to choke a donkey. In the center you'll find the Lucky Bunny logo, a moon, and the green, sticky spawn of the stars himself, Cthulhu.

Do you like my fine Doulton™ Everyday china? I thought you would.

And last, but not least a robot, an alien, and a whale. It's almost a reenactment of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Yeah, STAR TREK, I said it. NO I'm not ashamed (please don't tell anyone I watch Star Trek...)

Robot, alien, T-Rex, Puffer fish, Woman of Willendorf, Swampmop, Lucky Bunny Logo, moon all made by Rich.

Whale, Cthulhu, Squirrel, and Snargle made by Spiderbite... me.

It's Aliiiive!

Hello there! In case you haven't noticed I am jump-starting a blog here. Why? Well, I just thought I'd start one to keep people abreast of what I'm up to work wise.

Just in case you stumbled upon this blog by accident, as opposed to my badgering you into reading it, my name is Sarah Jane Evans. I am an illustrator, bookbinder, and the Owner/CEO/President/Founder/Laborer/Faux-fur Connoisseur for Spiderbite Boutique, home of the Nightmare Snatcher™ journals.

Check out my online shops if you have a minute:

So this blog will be for posting my sketches, new artwork, and new products for my online stores. Thanks for dropping by and I hope you'll come back and check out my work.
