Your Fan Club update



My first Your Fan Club shop update includes some requests along with some of my own favorites, like Dana Scully, Bigfoot, Kurt Vonnegut and Willy Wonka. You can find all of the new pins, as well as all of the original designs, in the Your Fan Club shop here.

New brooches



I just added five new brooch designs to my shops. The top two and bottom two are available at Flapper Doodle, and the X-Files brooch is available at Sweet and Lovely. All are laser-cut from black and white acrylic. I'm really excited about these, especially the Bookworm one!

The thinker



I drew this last year and completely forgot about it until I was looking for a different file on my computer today and stumbled upon it. I can't remember if I just forgot to list it in my shop or if I didn't like it enough to list in my shop, but either way... I like it now and I just listed it here.

We're Clearly Soldiers in Petticoats


This is actually the cover of my very first zine (coming soon!) but I was too excited to wait for the zine to be finished to share it. I'm pretty sure everyone is familiar with this song lyric, but just in case - it's from the Sister Suffragette song in Mary Poppins!

It's available as an art print in my etsy shop here. I also listed it on society6 -- I think it looks pretty awesome on tote bags especially!

Trust No One


My dad recently suggested that I do an X-Files drawing that somehow incorporated their constant use of flashlights. I loved the idea and this is what I came up with! Prints are available in my etsy shop here.

Maleficent



I went to see Maleficent at the movies twice in the last two weeks -- it's really good! I love how Disney is redefining the idea of True Love with this movie & Frozen.

With the inky black outfit and those beautiful horns I just had to capture Maleficent as a Flapper Doodle. The drawing is available in my etsy shop here.

By a Waterfall - Busby Berkeley inspired art



This new drawing is the first in a series of Busby Berkeley-inspired drawings that I've been brainstorming about for years. I was never quite sure how to fit this all on one single page, so I devised a little system with overlapping pieces of tracing paper -- it was complicated in the best possible way. I took photos of the process so I'll upload those tomorrow, if you're interested in seeing some behind-the-scenes peeks.

The drawing is available in my etsy shop here.

Your Fan Club



I just opened up a new etsy store for my newest project, Your Fan Club. The idea is that you can find a pin for any fan club imaginable -- burritos, obscure classic movie actors, tv icons, cult classic stars, etc. I started out with about 40 designs and plan on adding more on a semi-regular basis.

Each pin is laser-cut from black and white acrylic & features one of my drawings in the center. I'm especially excited about re-purposing some of my older classic film drawings and paintings that have been collecting dust in my studio drawer. I for one would definitely want to be a member of the Robert Montgomery Fan Club.
