Let’s get those productive feel good vibes going with a side of fun reading. Extra good news is Misfit Matriarch #2: Summer Hissy Fits will be released September 20th so if you already bought Misfit Matriarch #1: Nine Months of Blogging (and you don’t want another?!) you can still help out.
When I was in Quebec City last week I picked up some Angelina Wrona prints.
I want to collect every one to hang in my bedroom, I’m at ten now so I have a ways to go, I simply adore her work. Anyhoo, one of the three I picked up from Quebec Images was Hive. Figured it was appropriate enough to share here.
Shanda Sedore says of the work honouring her two lil ones. I love these tattoos too, and it doesn’t hurt that they were done by my dear friend Ryan Howe (formerly) at Lost Anchor.
Sedore says her daughter Becky, 7, looks exactly like Gwen from Nightmares and Fairy Tales by Serena Valentino and FSc. She says that Becky has shown an inspirational strength when facing obstacles which can be compared to the stories of Annabelle the Ragdoll.
“The little boy is a direct comic carbon copy of my son Matt,” Sedore said. Howe drew the boy to match the Gwen/Becky style.
Comics are a passion Sedore shares with her 9-year-old son, whom she says gave her purpose at a time where she felt a lost soul.
“My children and I have overcome some tragic times and terrible obstacles [such as mental illness]. As well as celebrated many wonderful triumphs.”
These pieces represent my children, the placement represents our family support, strength and unity EVERY step through life! [Misfit note: best placement explanation I’ve heard!] There is much more to these pieces but further meaning is far too personal for blogging, but I know how deep it goes. Wherever my next chapter leads me in the afterlife, I know they will be walking with me there too .”
