What the heck is a Skullyflower, anyway?
Skullyflower.com is the unique vision of artist, Dragon Messmer
Skullyflower art tries to find beauty in the ugly, sympathy for the monstrous, light in the darkness. Humor underlies much of it.
Skullyflower is a small independant business, in Rochester, NY, providing spooky, hand made, cartoon art gifts at reasonable prices. Originally inspired by Sanrio's Hello Kitty, Dragon realized she could easily turn some of her designs into stylish, good quality products by using waterproof printable vinyl and her craft skills. Over the years she's tried a number of different 3rd parties and techniques.
In the The SkullyFlower Shop you'll find cool horror inspired art gifts like stickers, magnets, cards and prints, all featuring skullyflower art, most hand crafted by the artist.
Buying Skullyflower art not only enriches your life, but also helps support the artist.
- In the Artwork section, you'll find the pieces that are more finished, in a variety of mediums.
- The Comics Section contains a few comic stories and strips. Click the cover image to read the stories. These are also available in print, so the stories are broken out into books, but really there are two main stories: Skullyflower, about the adventures of a skull faced flower, and Sammy and Syd, which is about a couple pals who happen to be ghosts.
- The Sketchbook contains raw doodles, journal comics, and other spontaneous scribbles, and is updated often. Most of the work in this section is done straight to ball point pen, no erasing.
Poke around and enjoy.
