Christmas Eve and Marks approach to Meat..... ?

Happy Christmas Eve, everyone!

My friend, Suzan, posted this image this morning on Facebook and although I am a Mark Ryden fan, I had never seen this piece before! I love it, of course :)


"Santa Worm" by Mark Ryden

So, then I started doing some research on it and realized that it is everywhere! From prints sold on Ebay to sets of holiday cards.... Where have I been? :D

Anyway, If you are not familiar with Mark Ryden's work, here is a fairly recent article that I found to be interesting (with an interview of the artist). And showing one of his meat themed paintings.

I love his approach to the meat industry. It is basically the same way I approach meat when it comes to feeding my children. I tell them exactly what it is (ham = pig, beef = cow, etc) before they decide on what they want and then they can make the choice themselves whether or not they are OK with consuming that.... Usually they are not so they rarely (very rarely) consume meat products. Meat is so disguised that I can see why it took me until I was 13 years old to realize that I wanted to be a vegetarian! And it tastes good! But once I truly understood what meat was and how it was "made" it didn't matter to me how good it tasted. I felt morally compelled to stray from meat and 20 years later I don't regret it one bit.

See what art can do? I see a simple Mark Ryden image and it becomes this entire speech about eating meat! :D That is what I love about art though.... It can inspire something inside of us like nothing else can. and even if Mark Ryden himself is not a vegetarian, I respect his approach, which is awareness. I do believe that human beings are intelligent enough to make conscientiousness decisions by themselves and not be controlled by habit or be tricked by meat in disguise.... It's just a matter of them feeling that it is important enough to do something about it.

Well enough about that.. What I really came here to say was Happy Christmas Eve! ;)

Wishing you all happiness and peace (and tofu) in the new year!

Merry Christmas!

Teagan and Muse spotted a present under the tree..... Looks to me like they are considering not telling the others and keeping this their own little secret ;)

Thank you all for a wonderful year! I truly appreciate all of you... Sharing your photos and your comments, it means so much to me!

Wishing you all a very happy and peaceful holiday.

Melacacia's "Lorraine" dress

Melacacia's "Lorraine" dress, originally uploaded by meℓacacia.

This dress design was named after my grandmother.

I will be making these in different hand-dyed colors and will have them at Blythecon 2011 in Portland... Along with some other Melacacia Couture and my hand painted eye chips as well.

I am starting on my inventory as soon as possible :)

Rosalina, originally uploaded by meℓacacia.

I wanted these amazing little boots to look vintage, so I painted them and distressed them a little bit... I am happy with how they turned out.

Here they are before I customized them (shiny and new) :)

Here is the box that Rosalina will travel to her new home in (I hope to get better pics tomorrow before the auction ends):

Rosalina - OOAK Custom Blythe Art Doll - by Melacacia

Rosalina is finished ^_^


I am, however, still waiting for her boots to arrive in the mail!!


So, there are photos that I still need to take of her once the shoes arrive.... I am hoping they will be here on Monday, they were supposed to be here by yesterday :(

I am going to be customizing them a little bit, but that is about how they should look.

Her traveling box is also not completed yet, so I will be working on that and uploading more photos to her listing once I am finished with it.

My main concern was getting her listed in time to be shipped and arrive at her new home before Christmas.

Please check back in a couple of days for more photos of Rosalina ♥

Click on either of the above images to go to her auction :)

Thanks for looking!!

I am grateful for all of you ♥

Reference for Sarah

Photo showing her first coat of blue to match her reroot:


This girl is inspired by the sea. So I will try to incorporate the other shades of blue (from the hair) with some splashes of color on her lids to mimic ocean waves or spray/mist

I will probably be removing the lashes... I just wanted to see what they looked like in blue ;)
