At some point in the ’80s, the following dialogue took place:
Studio Exec 1: “Remember that beloved childhood classic, The Wizard of Oz? Well I’ve had an idea for a sequel. Dorothy gets sent to a mental hospital to undergo unethical torture under the guise of electroshock therapy while the previous failed experiments scream in the basement. Soon, she escapes to Oz – a once-magical land that’s now host to unimaginable terrors and headless freaks – where she’s hunted and almost killed at every turn.”
Studio Exec 2: “Great, when do we start?”
While I’ve still never understood how Disney greenlit the movie, I do know that Tik-Tok was always one of my favourite characters, and this necklace by Canterbury-based design team Sugar & Vice captures him perfectly.

Commissioned portrait of the very talented Scottish artist Maureen Rocksmoore for a publication in Italy. Her studio is housed inside the beautiful Briggait building in Glasgow’s Merchant City, which made the perfect backdrop to this photo.
At work in the Wasps Artists’ Studios.
You can see more of Maureen’s work – including her dramatic sykscapes – over on her Facebook page and on her official website.

Another fantastic collaboration with burlesque and sideshow performer Kim Khaos, in a glittering tribute to Hollywood legend, Elizabeth Taylor.

Halloween might be over but there are still plenty of scares to come! Here’s the teaser trailer for the video I shot with The Death Do Us Part Danger Show last month; fantastically described by one viewer as being “like a wedding video Quentin Tarantino made”. 🔪
See some select video stills under the cut.

“We have a metamorph loose! Could be anybody.” (Mystique from the X-Men series.)
I’ve got you you under my skin.
We had a lot to live up to after last year’s effort, but I think these are pretty damn impressive for something we came up with 2 days before Halloween!
