busy day, but I managed to squeeze in a quick portrait of Aurelio Voltaire in honor of his birthday
Voltaire and I got up to some mischief this weekend! He wanted to pick my brain about a collaboration next year, which I’m crazy excited about - he’s a charmer <3
Who’s out enjoying Voltaire’s Wicked Necrocomiccon? Check out the necroners he made just for the event! Photo from Voltaire’s facebook page.
Probably hasn’t caught wind of tumblr! Or felt like facebook wasn’t enough. He’d be killer on here though, I agree! :)
Voltaire is the sweetest, most genuine artist I’ve ever met. He took time to talk to me at his merch table at his birthday show when I told him I’ve been going through a rough time. I lost my brother last week, and his birthday was the first time I had been out. He made me feel a lot better, and he gave me something really special and unexpected to honor my brother.
He gave a complete stranger his hat, just to make her night/week/month better. Just because he felt like it, no other motive.
I was a big fan before, but my goodness, I never expected him to be such an awesome person! He helped restore my faith that people I admire could truly care about their fans.
And to honor my brother, the hat is coming to the funeral. Because my brother would have loved it :’)
This is a really lovely story <3 :’) Thanks blackischeerful for sharing!
Thank you so kindly! I’m sorry for slacking off so much @_@ I’ll try to keep up!
Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope you’ve celebrated with some rum & nogg, and any gifts or dinners you may have had. Now have a fresh new Christmas song from Voltaire! “Santa Clause is Satan”.
