What’s better than beautiful shoes? Actually owning them instead of drawing them. Dreams from my sketch book.

halloween illustration by tracy hetzel

Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween. Mine was pretty scarry. When I logged into my blog to post this Coraline inspired Halloween illustration, my blog was gone! Ahhh, panic ensued! But, hey, I got it back, 2 days later. So, Happy Halloween!… 2 days late!

Despite the Fangs

romance book art by tracy hetzel

despite the fangs by Dylan NewtonI delved into my inner werewolf to create this piece. I not only had the pleasure but also thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with paranormal romance author Dylan Newton, to create an artistic representation of her heroine, Aribella Lupari. Based on her novel “Despite the Fangs”, which you should all read, Aribella Lupari prefers her werewolf form as she tracks missing persons in the snowy Adirondacks and of course falls for the the guy who forces her to ignore all her animal instincts.

And hey, guess what? You can win a print of this painting. Just follow this link to enter: Contest ends Halloween Night!

“Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?” — Lana Del Rey

Self-portrait of me on my wedding day many years ago. What a beautiful day it was, even though it rained (outdoor wedding) and the caterers truck caught fire (despite the rain) and no one could leave because the firetrucks were blocking the driveway (ran out of beer)… Happy Anniversary Babe.
