Witching Hour by OlgaUlanova Witching Hour by OlgaUlanova
A promotional piece for my friend Julie's business. I loved doing this one because she let me pick the direction, and I got to tackle gothic lolita style! The final product is a 6" × 4" postcard.

*Hee*! Okay, this one makes me think of my ex. She would automatically open any catalog or walk into any store which displayed this image, and I adored her for it. Fabulous and fun!

haha, was she into gothic lolita? It's extremely concentrated fluff - best partaken in small doses. XD

She was *intensely* into the Gothic aesthetic -- both modern and old-school -- and dolls. All *sorts* of dolls, but especially ones with a certain degree of creeptacular sexuality. So -- yes!

oh my gosh, I had to look up Imai Kira, and you're right! And I got to "discover" another great artist. ^_^ Thank you!

lol I'm glad I made you discover Imai Kira... it's really odd that your style resembles hers, when you didn't even know her work... O.o

Please send me a note if you'd like to discuss the commission. I am off-line on the weekends, (plus this Monday for the memorial day), but I'll answer very first thing on Tuesday. :thanks:

Well, it's entirely up to you of course. :)

If you don't mind me saying though, just in general -- there's nothing wrong with your shyness, but it might be protecting you a bit too well. You never know what you might be missing.... ^_~

omg I love flat majic! It's such a small world... you know that's so funny... I'm working on 152nd st again! haha! I'm like right across the street from Flat Majic! haha!

Very cute! I'll have to go in there when I'm not working (they have the same schedule as my store :< ) and bring in your cute postcard!
Reply
:iconolgaulanova:
OlgaUlanova Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2007
You're on 152nd?? No way! Well, you definitely have to stop by, then. ^_^

The postcards should be in the store by Saturday, but even if they're not - demand your rightful discount!! :D



(what's across the street? I can't visualize the layout!!)

I know I tell people all the time that my very first job was on 152nd st. at Wonderworld. Across the street is that new store Zizia, Poggi Bognsi, 909 and GrassRoots where I work! I love my plants! haha!

Hahah! Yeah I'll try and get down there Saturday, I've got a Samhain ritual to get to later in the day but I can drag my friend out to old B-town to at least see all the little kiddies in their cute costumes!
