Back in July I posted some fan art of my work with sweet friend Simone Simons, singer from Epica. I’ve had some more sent through varying from digital art, paintings, and pencil drawings. This one I just HAD to share with you. I love the simplicity and detail that just ordinary pencil can bring to an image. By Paz Patterer from Argentina. Thanks Paz!! Epica have just announced some dates for their 2012 tour with more to come! Mx
After the success of the Jane Doe Brass Collection launched in March, Seventh Circle Artworks and Jane Doe launched the Silver Edition this week. I’m a really big fan of silver and I love how the pieces give a different vibe when worn even though they are exactly the same design as the Brass. Alongside this the Crobar (London’s favourite rock bar in Soho) “Larry” Skull Cufflinks are now for sale Also, from Monday 14th November the Stone Dead Forever Eternity Ring will be available. Which I absolutely adore. You can purchase all of these items and more at Seventh Circle Artworks. Christmas is coming…. what a great idea for an original gift? Mx
It’s official. The clocks have gone back here in the UK – the nights will be drawing in and the temperature dropping as we prepare ourselves for winter. If you’ve purchased my Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar, you will be looking at the stunning and mysterious Amber Erlandsson (also know in in the alternative modeling world as Morrigan Hel). She is dressed in military inspired corset outfit by Velda Lauder. Amber fronts Metal band Nemhain and also runs the photo studio used for this shoot – Murder Mile. She’s a rather talented and fun person to be around! Amber’s hair styled by the wonderful Sherri Sue Liberatori from Diamond Dolls Boutique, London. This was one of my favourite shoots from the calendar as it explored the less girly side of the 50’s pin up modeling. I also can’t help but like the smell of a burning cigar! Amber was such a pro that we only needed one for the shoot, and thankfully the smoke alarms in the studio were turned off! Only one more month left to reveal now… I wonder who it could be? Mx
Just a little update to let you all know my latest published news… REVOLVER Magazine, (USA based rock magazine) has printed one of my pictures full page in their latest issue out this week – their yearly Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock issue. You may all recognise Simone Simons from the shoot I did earlier this year, with Simone wearing jewellery from the Jane Doe Collection by Seventh Circle Artworks. Alongside that, REVOLVER have a Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock 2012 Calendar which is available for sale now. Another photo I took of Simone features in their Calendar – she is centre spread, the month of June. Order your Calendar here. Each month has dates marked with important birthdays and events in the Rock Music world. Both of these items are the first major pieces of publication I’ve had in the States so far and I’m super stoked! Lastly, with the release of Machine Head’s album ‘Unto the Locust’, Terrorizer Magazine printed full page my picture of Robb Flynn. Machine Head have just started touring on this album and I’m very much looking forward to catching up with the guys here in December at their London show!
I spent my Friday night this week at my favourite photo studio with rock band DogState. The guys wanted some promos to go alongside their new EP release ‘War Baby’. Here’s a little teaser of one of the other shoot settings! The guys currently have the contact sheets to decide their final images, so after then I will share some of them with you all. We all worked really hard on the shoot but also had a great laugh too. I’m off to York tomorrow morning early for a little break but will share some pictures as I’ve been told that there’s some great architecture there. Plus I want to go to the Viking Museum too! Mx
Can you believe it’s September already? This year has flown by! It feels like forever ago since this shoot with beautiful Bella for the Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar. You all get to look at her for this month. It was such a pretty and giggly shoot, actually shot at my in-laws bedroom. They had such a lovely 1950’s setting with all the little nick nacks and a kidney shaped dresser that was perfect for the shoot. Bella comes from New Zealand and is a dab hand at makeup; having her work published worldwide in magazines such as Vogue, Harpers and Elle along with working at MAC Cosmetics in Harrods, London along her journey. She has her own business – Bella Simonsen Makeup Artist Ltd – check out her work here. Her hair was styled by good friend Sherri Liberatori from Diamond Dolls Boutique London and lingerie provided by FairyGothMother/Lulu & Lush. I hope to have some news for you very soon on the future plans for Dolls ‘n’ Divas. Mx
The new Terrorizer Magazine (Issue 213) is out this week packed with great features – if you’re a fan of Gojira, Evile, Behemoth and more it’s a must-read!

Also in the Dominion pull out on page 13 and a centre fold pull out A3 poster of Simone Simons from Epica wearing jewellery designed by Jane Doe Latex and made by Seventh Circle Artworks. The Jane Doe Collection was released in March this year and has had such a great response.

Dolls ‘n’ Divas Calendar cover girl Tristen Lee is also the month of August! Tristen is co-founder of Bonkers Entertainment and Radio DJ at Total Rock. Wearing a chevron skirt, halter top and knickers by Edie Rocks at Diamond Dolls Boutique London. Her hair was styled also by Sherri-Sue at Diamond Dolls and makeup by the super talented Aussie Julie Cooper. The cute dog Rudy was hired from the owners of the photo studio for her cuteness – you can see why I couldn’t resist! 1950’s suitcases borrowed from Neil Fish, guitarist in Godsized. This shoot was an actual scorcher of a day, I remember it well, so it was very easy to pretend to be on vacation. Whatever your plans are for the Holidays, I hoe you have a great time!
