So back in August 2007, I did a shoot with my friend Shyla. Better known as Doll Artist Ugly Shyla.  She had come to LA (Anaheim) from Louisiana to sell her dolls at Bats Day at Disneyland. Her friend Batty couldn’t make it but had a table.  So I agreed to sell Batty’s corsets and my photography at the same time!

In all matters it was a win win situation.  I got to hang out with Shyla, spend the day at Bats Day, and sell my stuff.  Later that night, I got to photograph Shyla and see Android Lust!  What fun!

The above pictures were taken with great patience from Shyla - my lights weren’t firing properly, and we had to keep trying different things to make it work.  In the end, I got some awesome photos that I still love to this day, and she got some to market her amazing dolls. I like the off colors, and the way they came out.  I might not do it the same now, but I’m quite happy with them.  I’m not sure what I’d do differently.  I sometimes miss that dirty edge that I had back then.  Nowadays, I tend to use much cleaner lighting and less artsy shadows!

She hand makes them from start to finish,  and each one is beautiful in a creepy artistic way. They come in a variety of materials, and shapes and sizes.  I have a tiny sleeping beauty doll that she made for me absolutely LOVE it.  I also purchased a bust she made of herself shortly after I first met her.  It still has a place of honor in my curio cabinet! She makes a living as an artist making her fine art dolls and various other arts.

Please take some time to visit her website and look through her dolls and other art pieces.

A way way way back #tbt Me in 1979 at a week old with my great grandma “Granny” Diane Mouton .She was a wonderful lady.She wanted to be a nun but ended up getting married to “Pop” Mouton. She stayed extremely faithful to the Catholic faith her whole life.She lived to be almost over 100.He and Pop lived in the swamps for a number of years.She was a very sweet lady.I think she is why I have always loved catholic art my entire life.

Since fall is coming I spruced up my #baronsamedi #altar.I found him a little tiny table so he doesn’t always get buried in the dead leaves. He seems to like it.Almost everything on his altar is from his spiritual son @stevehapy who spoils him! I have some stuff on my indoor altar I need to put outside for him. But I wanted to at least grab a pic of his new set up.
