SMUDGY ANTICS



Welcome back for another Smudgy Antics' Challenge!

The challenge theme this week is
 "TWISTED SISTER".
How twisted can you get?  We want to see your dark or naughty side come out to play.  There's no need to hide or be squeamish, we are all freaks here...at least that's what those in The Land of Matilda say about us.  
I wear my Freak Show Badge with pride and so should you (click this link to get your own freak show button)!  Heck, art is art.  I make dark,macabre, strange things, but that doesn't make me a mass murderer,or an unfeeling person.  It just means I am diverse in my creative process.  My mates make alternative works as well.  Come on, dive in and have some fun!  Screw the pretty, fluffy crap!  Save that for those other challenges.  We like it gritty around here...and TWISTED!

I bet you have already guessed i borrowed most of the above text from
 Lady B,tweeked it a bit to suit me, but you now get the drift of our new challenge.
 I made the cover for my mini album....the one that i put together during the 31 days..... this i shall now send to my TWISTED SISTER..... i used the words of the song I AM, (I'M ME) by TWISTED SISTER ( click the link and listen to the words..... its one of my favourites) as my inspiration.
Poe is here because i like him..... the heart has freedom in it..... the woman is bound, but is about to break free of the bonds. The woman, Poe, chain link fence and heart are all from SMEARED INK (all are rubber except the woman)
I hope you'll join us this week.....BE YOURSELF, BE FREE..... how ever TWISTED....thanks for visiting me. BDx

  8. Hello Blackdragon.
    Uniquely risqué, and carries much symbolism; some of which you have mentioned. I was thrilled and excited to see this creation entered into Our Creative Corner Challenge, but then I saw that you had entered too many Challenges to qualify, how disappointing for me.
    This was a winner in my book.
    Please join us again, but read our rules so that you are not kicked off next time.
    Smiles:)

  9. LOL..Poe is here because I like him..hahhaha..that's awesome! Your mini cover album is striking. The colors are stark and bold and that heart leaps from the page. The barbwire is fantastic in the image and your personal note to be yourself is always worth noting!
    Love your style and you certainly delivered again. :)
    Hope you're twisted sister digs this...I'm certain she will!
    Thank you so much for sharing this with us at Make It Monday too.

  13. Absolutely wonderful work as always, BD; so beautiful and full of rich imagery. And it has Poe so is double wonderful. I do recognise a shade of Lady B in your words! She tells it like it is as the saying goes. Thank you for your comment on my blog and how lovely for you to have the original canvas by Andrea. Love, Vee xx

  14. That heart is incredible, there is a sense of energy from it as though it is beating madly.
    Slightly dark and very compelling.
