The Foolish Mortal
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Lissa emerged from Zeus’ skull fully formed with a pencil in hand and a bowler hat on her head. Shortly after this miraculous birth Zeus took two aspirin, got distracted, and forgot all about it leaving her to wander off to her own devices.

Other sources report she was found on the doorstep of a haberdashery and raised by mad hatters. Even others claim that she was instead born in Texas and raised the usual way.

After discovering a knack for drawing things and making stuff up as she went along Lissa decided to study art and spend the rest of her life covered in ink and pixels. So far she has yet to really regret this.

Lissa has travelled the land with her faithful hat selling her art at whatever conventions and venues will take her. She also does commission work and has done work for board games, websites, small businesses, and satanic newsletters.

When she has spare time Lissa likes to write in the third person, play video games, watch horrible movies, and read books about dead people.

Welp I've been keeping this quiet until I was sure there wasn't another hurricaine coming my way. But now I'm pretty sure its safe. 

I'm going to be tabling at San Japan this Labor Day weekend in San Antonio.  I'll be at table F104 - so if you're in the area feel free to drop by and say hello. I'll be the sleep deprived red head in hte bowler hat.

Break the Rich
Been playing a lot of Darkest Dungeon lately. Love the game, love hte narrator, the ambience - like the various classes. HATE HATE HAAAAAAAATE the Ancestor. I was so annoyed when the statue in the middle of town got rebuit. I did not authorize this and did not want it back. I do imagine some of the adventurers probably feel the same way. Good thing some folks have pick axes.

Lucia
So we return to the motif of "lady presenting bloody organs out to the viewer" - I've been calling them Blood Saints. 

This one is actually a saint - Saint Lucia.

Blah blah early christian - wanted by a pagan prince blah blah - horrible things - eye balls. My personal favorite iteration of the tale is one where she takes her eyes out herself and sends them to her admirer in hopes he'll leave her alone, since he kept expressing how pretty her eyes were. 

 Teel Deer version is - shes a lady who got her eyeballs ripped out and now its sort of her motif. Though usually shes shown with her eyes back in her head and extra ones on a platter. 

Sadly this is probably the last piece of this series I can do - cause there's only so many organs one can present dramatically with any sort of drama. A heart is a recognizable object, eyes balls are a fuck you, livers are just blobby and intestines are unwieldy.

City on the Hill, Light Upon the World
Welp I did a poster for Rapture so I figured I needed to make one for Columbia. 

I kicked around this design for ages and tried to do one that looked more like my other posters but - they didn't feel right. So I did a lot of looking around at old lithos - old posters - and lots of Belle Époque era art. Not sure I nailed the look but I think I'm happy with it so far. Might do a long form write up if anyone is interested. 

This took forever to do, I have many many awkward feelings about this piece and current events. 

This piece is currently available on Redbubble

Agatha
Surprisingly I was unable to find a saint known for having their heart ripped out. 

Not much going on - just decidedtotry out a new art program by playing with an old sketch I had laying around.
