Back in 2010, my youngest child was a 14 year old teenager who enjoyed sketching, drawing and goth. He actually agreed to my suggestion of letting me post one of his selections online. I chose this one of his skull, modified it into 2 additional sizes and then as one basic template of three skulls. To say it remains a popular selling item to this day is pleasantly pleasing for him as a conversation starter with his friends and our family.
Below are four shops with his Skull Boys fashion and home decor items. Great items appropriate for Halloween events and Goth occasions.
I used to participate in contests on a former online company named Polyvore, It was a fun way to showcase matching fashion and home decor items. I chose to use the Skull Boys pattern as it seems to be a favorite in the United Kingdom. 🙂 I included the matching umbrella, in case it rains on the way to the studio.

Skull Boys was drawn and created by my son Justyn that started out as three different sized heads that was then modified into this great template of multiple skulls by me, his mom, Celeste. It looks pretty cool as home decor and fashion wear. Based on sales over the years, the birthday greeting card and tie are very popular in England 🙂
Sharing a sampling of sales from one of my online Black and White niche shop.
In preparing to write this appreciative note, I had to double-check what I was seeing! Apparently my customer in New Jersey went and purchased a second set while another person in New Jersey decided to buy one as well.
The year was 2010, my son Justyn, was almost 14 years old and was into skulls, goth and art. I suggested we collaborate on a design which he was happy to do. I modified his skull boys design by multiplying the images and voila, on July 11, 2010 we posted this Skull Boys birthday template greeting card that continues to be a favorite. Customers can personalize the card by typing in a name or text.
Sending a virtual thank you to my customer in New York for your multiple card purchase.
I have quite a large extended family whose members last name begins with the letter R.
A few years ago, I had a bit of fun experimenting with a variety of fonts and sizes using the letter R. Rather than choosing just one font, I decided to merge them all to create this patterned home décor bathroom shower curtain. Double duty as bedroom curtains or even a fancy party backdrop. The perfect all occasion, not just Christmas or birthday gift. Contact me and provide the initial you wish to use for your design.
Add your monogram to personalized this cute black and white skull patterned invitation, key chain and unity candle set designed in collaboration with my son. 🙂
Perfect additions for Goth themed weddings and events.
What are your initials!!
Four hours of working with numbers required a quick 10 minute was very much needed break needed which for me means turning on my iPad. For a fast distraction, I choose a finger painting app and my two favorite colors, black and white.
Several minutes and fifteen images later I was happy and ready to buckle back down to work. Later in the evening, three designs were selected as shown below, descriptions composed, keywords chosen, images properly re-sized and then uploaded to my Society6 store.
My clients enjoy Society6. They feature great home decor items such as poster and framed prints, perfect for these designs and yes, they are considered a type of fine art. They also translate nicely as fashion wear and electronic gift products. My mini “breaks” actually means many hours of what others call work, I call creative relaxation.
Which of these designs speaks to you? 🙂
