Goggles and Good Stuff

Dear Readers:

I altered this pair of goggles for last weekend’s shoot. They were already trimmed in fur:

  
I added some copper and gold paint to give them a sunburst effect:

   
   

They didn’t get a lot of “on camera” time, but I have one little snippet here and plans to use them for a future shoot:

  
I have a couple of new items in the Etsy store, please take a gander at this new hat (from a previous shoot):   

   
Model: Mimi Hood

   

And this bustle skirt (from last weekend’s shoot): 
 

   
    
    

Model: Dana Byrd

    
 Many more good things to come, watch this space, you won’t be disappointed.

As always, thank you for reading.

Fae Hat for Steampunk Shootout 

Just a quick post on the hat I made for my steampunk fairy for the Steampunk Shootout. I took a basic hat, added a doctored up hanger for antennae, fringe and other details for a sweet topper.

I’ll be posting more from this shoot and some ones I did from yesterday. 

  
    
    
    
    
    
  

I also competed this hat for the shoot and it’s now available in the Etsy store!

   
    
   
This grey topper was made completely from scratch:

   
    
 As always, thank you for reading.

Announcement #2 and Fae Wings

 Dear Friends:

I am so pleased to announce that I will again be showing at the AKC Museum of the Dog again this summer! I am honored that I was selected for not just one date, but two dates as well and that I will be demonstrating/drawing live. Dates are to be announced shortly.

A couple of weeks ago, I was pleased to be a part of the Shutterfest Steampunk Shootout at Union Station.

I will have more pics coming, but I wanted to share the process of creating the wings for a steampunk fairy in the shoot. Enjoy!

  
    
   

As always, thank you for reading.

Yes, Another Park…

…but not just any park. I’m so influenced by St. Louis’ City Parks, but Forest Park is the true jewel of the city. Forest Park will appear later in my Society Series and I’ve shared these photos before. This time, I’ve put them in video format on my YouTube channel. Forest Park was recently voted #1 city park in the nation. No surprise here as there is so much to see and do. 

The History Museum has had two exhibits in the couple of years, The 1875 and 200th St. Louis birthday exhibits which helped immensely in researching my books. 

The series was taken on a day I visited the 1875 exhibit in late fall. Take a gander here:

As always, thank you for reading.

Lafayette and an Announcement 

I love Lafayette Park. It’s one of the Society’s secret meeting places from my book Strax and the Widow. I shot this series of pics on a gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day a couple weeks ago.    
    
    
    

   
    
    
   

   
    
    
  

Which leads me to the first of several exciting announcements. It’s a “steamy” summer again for me! I am again participating in the Lafayette Square Summer House Tour, the first weekend in June. I will have a table of my fine steampunk items and plenty of copies of Strax and the Widow to sign at 1900 Park, Create Space. It’s a fantastic, multi-use gallery that I used last year for my steampunk installation. 

Over the next couple weeks, I have several more exciting bits to share. If you would like to receive my 4-6 times a year newsletter that covers all my art, please email me through this blog with your email address.

The paperback to Strax and the Widow is here!

http://www.amazon.com/dp/1530050367

If you’ve read it, please take a moment to offer you honest critique and comments on Amazon. I would really appreciate it. 

As I said before, the only dark side to the paperback, is that the price of the ebook version will soon go up after it’s re-edited/formatted. Right now it’s ONLY $1.99 on Amazon/kindle for the ebook format. It won’t be this low again, ever. The Society series is in full swing. So get to know Kate Church before everyone else….Several art shows and book signing are coming!

Revenge and Machinery, the second book in the Society Series, is on its way. Watch this space.

The Vampire’s Little Black Book series will continue to be $.99 per short story until I have the compilation and re-edit completed. So please, take a gander, and share it with your friends!

As always, thank you for reading.
