I've been updating my Instagram a lot more than anything else so if you want to stay updated on the strange creative world of well me then please follow my Instagram,  ravenschofield_blackheart 
Ive been absent for a while
Ive been renovating a house lately, demolishion then rebuild, with Jack, its been fun but tiring, made friends with a little brown bat, he got scared from all the banging and demo a few weeks ago, came fluttering out of the eeves, so i caught him, and he fell asleep in my hand as i pet his little head, its been an interesting project, a learning experience
creativity wise im in a box at the moment, been going through a dry spurt for a few months, too much stress in my personal life i suppose. oh well, i'll get back there, its not that ive lost ideas its ive lost motivation.

This is Halloween

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 1, 2016, 12:27 PM
Celebrated Halloween with my twin cousins last night, danced,skipped and walked through town and stores, people crossed the road to get away from us, we went to a hotel to visit one of their friends and ended up hiding in a hallway waiting to scare the hell out of the girls boyfriend, then we went to a bar, danced to some rave music, danced with The Joker, played some pool and all three of us went home with cash for winning a costume contest. 
I am currently in New England working on several projects right now, already miss my dear warm California! I will return at the beginning of next year, January or February.

I know that I haven't been on lately, been really distracted with other things. working on a film, started building a pair of fetish ballet shoes tonight and a friend gave me a trapeze so been trying to find a place to hang it. Other than that there's not much new going on, ironically after building a set of fire dancing poi I now have no place to dance. Really need to start getting back into character creation and nightly art projects. I have several thousand pictures that I have been procrastinating out of dealing with, and a laundry list of things that I need to do.

If you want a tail or tails commissioned message me, send me the specs you want (length, style, etc).

Also going to be uploading pre made tails for sale soon.

I have been working on a few things lately:
Top hats, using the modern versions of the traditional fabrics used in the early ages, silk & felt with buckram framing. I have a few on the hook, I completed a felt one tonight to get a feel for the proper process, the next will be black silk and following that will be black and red corset style with a possible fourth being black and red stripes. Its about a 20 hour process each, but worth it.

Characters: I have been drawing up some character concepts for events and guest haunting, and working on depth and back stories for existing ones, My Cirque characters have always come from  or been added to one of my WIP novels. I can't say I don't enjoy going about my daily business in character as well. 
Novels: After taking a six month breather I am back writing my novel series, Though I will say I am frustrated being that I am trying to figure out how to feature the Cirque in one of the books without destroying it's own book in the process. 
Face casting: After a bad batch a month ago with expired release agent that left me painting my eyebrows on for a few weeks I dared to try again, getting back into sculpting and molding  custom facial prosthetics & masks. 
Dying clothing: it speaks for it's self.
Bendy; always, I strive to regain my level of contortion as well as a few freak show acts which has included for the last several months remastering an old skill. 
As always I give very little detail on my WIPs partially due to having several people out there who have always tried stealing my work and also because it kills the fun. 
I have also been camera-less for a couple months now and unless looks can buy a new one I don't have $3.5k to get one currently. That means any new pictures unless taken with my phone will actually be older works.

As always, my life flipped again. I still have so much artwork to post that is only piling up more and more. 
I have not been up to much...
stole the show at Sac Zombie walk, Have three room mates as insane as I am, Went to Vegas, went to Sacanime, made new friends, lost old ones, back into contortionist training...i am determined to be able to kiss my own ass again. still beating up my camera, changed my life a bit, more art, finding projects, selling things, hating on celebrities I used to know, talking to new ones, dealing with massive amounts of physical pain on a daily basis, trying to keep up with my own thought process, laughing at assholes, talking to nice people, loving my fans, hating my haters  and being me..... ya know...the usual. 

sometimes I dont even feel like an artist anymore, I am surprised half of you still follow me (on any of my sites) since I have been failing to keep up with anything. I do apologize. I honestly do.  I have over 200,000 pictures now and less than 400 posted.

Lots of exploring and adventuring still with Emory, I have also still been working on personal projects including short whips, finally getting some costumes together for characters I have been working on, some for haunt season some for other things, lots of photography and some modeling. Havent done any digital art lately since I am not on my computer nearly as much as I used to be. I have been drawing a lot, I have no skill for pencil drawing anymore though. Getting my back cracked and massaged seems to help a lot with the bendy aspect, Only one vertebra that wont crack (the one I seriously need cracked in order to close back bend properly) but still working on it. I have a lot of physical damage but that doesn't stop me, well yet anyways. 

My mother finally moved into her permanent place, so Emory and I have been rounding up a few friends and helping her unpack our stuff, its like opening presents, some of our stuff we haven't seen in almost 4 years so lots of emotions. She is a strong woman, she has undergone a lot of stress in the past few months. I love her dearly. Her and I have been going on shopping dates, I showed her Old Sac not too long ago, a dangerous place to go when your goth and have money to spend, there's a beautiful costume shop and wiccan/ works of energy/magic shop down there. 

Onyx is doing great, I have never seen him happier, he loves the fact that when ever people come over almost daily they all give him tons of love & attention. He is so happy he can be an indoor cat. I love my cat. 

Over all I can say I am happy with my life finally.  I have good people standing by me, People who actually care and come through on things. 
I still have severe panic attacks and fear attacks but not because of current situations, but I kicked my depression, I know it will always be in the pit of me but its much easier to control. I actually feel....happy... Never thought I would be okay again but there appears to be hope for me yet. 
Love you Mom, Love you Emory, Love you everyone who is there for me.

 I figure my phone is in the star trek musuem right now since that is where it looks like it belongs, its not like I had it for 8 years or anything...  I got sick of getting woken up to stalker texts every day. Finally some long overdue peace and quiet.

No new projects as of lately since I recently moved to Norcal/ Sacramento, about three weeks ago,  I have found it to be more like my home state than Socal. Settling in, I still have tons of pics to upload but I know I will keep making excuses on to why I dont pull the SD card out of my camera and do it. My mother is settling in to a place which is nice, finally some stability, was worried about her...still am but still. Have a hobbyist photographer friend who wants tips and training so I will probably be doing a lot of little projects with him from makeup, modeling to photography depending on the project.  The art & entertainment industry isn't as dead as everyone says it is either, There are several haunts and live production groups here, recently went to a adult cirque that was quite interesting. I have Emory who knows a lot of people here which is good. IDK what I would do if I didn't have Emory, He has been great for this past year. 
Ciao,

Been working on set for a couple days and teaching my mother the ropes of special effects makeup, very amusing to be honest, but I am proud of her.  There is nothing like our three person team. There has been a lot of drama I must say and on top of it I am yet again finding someone stealing my images, why are people so artistically deficient they must steal other artwork to get attention? I have a few choice words but shall hold my tongue. I will not go into details on the projects due to the disclosure agreements. My poor makeup kit is going through hell with all these stairs and abuse.
The lack of sleep, hip trying to pop out and the blistered eyeballs from sun exposure are all really getting on my nerves though.
I am still camera-less for the most part unless I beat up my Olympus, I can not wait to upgrade to the Canon Mark 3. Also the greater the unnecessary personal stress level rises the more my artistic talent suffers.
I know I have not been posting very much, I will soon, I have been so busy and when I am not busy I am trying to catch up on much needed sleep.
Ciao,
~Forever Morbid, Raven.~

Well with followers/fans always come haters, which I honestly can take a compliment since I look at hating on someone for no good reason a sign of jealousy. I am not something money can buy, I am not a controllable force for most, I am not something brought down by haters, I am something unaffected by rumors, I am something that moves forward and above jealousy. Thank you to all of you who follow me, thank you to those who have sent me messages of love and encouragement and thank you for the gifts I have been receiving as of lately. <3 
Now that I have come up with some organized day planning system I shall be working on projects every day with any luck. Also I am getting back into contortionist shape, Inflexibility annoys me a great deal. 
I am still always open to suggestions, It pleases me to please you. 
Ciao,
~Forever Morbid, Raven.~

Had a set job a couple days ago, came out rather well I think, one demon piece; makeup and horn prosthetics, a burned face and about a gallon of blood wrecking the room which I was NOT responsible for, blame Cleve. soon be doing a Cyborg music video, thank gawd I dont have bones or organs or the 8-10in corset would break them all, not to mention getting thrown around and having to twist and run...this shall be highly amusing. 
Preparing for the gallery still, got mats, some frames and soon to be ordering the prints which for starters I am going with the Roses Of Death 5 piece series, Lorikeet Headshot, Swan in black waters and a few others as far as prints go. 
Also fell in love with coconut oil, so many uses! 
currently waiting for my face to dry since I am trying a new character design, probably not the best thing to do right now since the condition of my face. 
Ciao,

I got into The Hive Gallery as a studio artist?! I have a three wall corner space/studio/exhibit?! When did this happen?!
For those that aren't in CA, The Hive Gallery is one of the most well known all art allowed Galleries in So Cal.

Seems like projects are picking up again, wasn't expecting that til after the holidays. I have a list of people who want to shoot with me (except one I really want!) which means I've got to figure out something about my camera situation.
Personal life? well that's none existent, more or less consists of TV, Hot cherry burns, and creative thinking and seeing what fan girls/boys are drawing writing and saying about my social group which in all honestly is amusing. Been messing around with digital art while being tormented by a Wacom without a pen so virtually useless.
Have also dedicated myself to becoming a completely bendy again, learned a useful tip a few weeks ago though, I dislocate and slip disks a lot because of hypermobility.
Got sick lately due to an accidental overdose on aspirin, alternated two aspirin based meds, which I found out I'm also allergic to, three days of hell.
Yeah that sums it up in a nutshell.

I've been on red carpets, news stations, our haunt has been interviewed by Live 105, are there any pics other than a few on Getty images? of course not.. I have never been able to find pics taken of me in the haunt world and apparently that is the same for my public life as well.
I was the haunts contortionist up til this weekend, I live a bit dangerous; trick riding, rag dolling, stunts and contortionism. 

A Project Update

Journal Entry: Fri Aug 15, 2014, 11:55 AM
A few weeks ago we got a call, we are building an amazing project for ScareCo productions www.scarecopro.com/ a new haunted attraction in Oakland, we are building two haunts, one typical haunted house and right next door a unique Kaiju experience which will be operational September 26th - November 1st. I will be an attraction on those beautiful stairs during hours doing my spine twisting contortions. If you live in the SF Bay area I recommend checking this place out and not just because Cleve and I are building it but because I have worked haunts before and this is one of the biggest ones I have seen with lots of potential

A new life

Journal Entry: Sat Jul 12, 2014, 5:08 AM
A New Place. A New Life. A New World.
I wished for change and that's what I got. I hoped for a future and now there is light. No one can break me down again, I wont let them. This is my life.
The hummingbirds are mean little fuckers here but the people are interesting, I am finally in the place where I belong. no longer trapped by all too familiar walls, I left those behind.
I highly doubt I will be posting a lot. there are other projects to work on, There's much to learn, see and do. My only complaints are the heat & sun.
