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.


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
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. 
End of 2017
Sure has been a year. Time sure has passed. 
Welp, it took a record breaking hurricane but I finally had to break my attendance streak for San Japan. 

My chunk of Houston was lucky, so very lucky and blessed and we had minimal issues. But things are still a mess around here. 

The roads out of town were underwater. The highway I live off of, was flooded, people were boating on it. Another bit of highway, the flood waters moved the cement barriers all over the lanes.

 At the time I was intending to head out, a lot of the roads were still uncertain. And my little car, even though it is named after a fish man, is not the best in high waters. I've been stranded before in normal conditions, I didn't want to try to see what being stranded would be like in disaster fallout conditions. Especially since I would be traveling alone. 

A few other reasons, such as the artist I was tabling with got flooded out, my print stock is somewhere lost in transit. Also I feel I need to be here. 

I hope everyone who went has fun and stays safe. I'll see y'all next year.
