After going through a tough time in my life lately, I thought a great idea would be to hit up a downtown arts fest, called the Texas Avenue Makers Fair, in northwest Louisiana. Art festivals of all kinds can be tremendous inspirations. I grabbed my camera and notepad and went on the look out for alternative and bizarre but talented art work and individuals.
The first booth that caught my eye was the dark, horror themed art work of Mad Molly. She had many paintings and sketches out.
When I left I ran into another interesting individual with bright purple hair named, Ashley Griffin, who runs LipstickKitten. Her artwork is inspired by a plethora of things: Nightvale, Anime, Rocky Horror Show, and lots more.

I absolutely loved these book ends she made, especially the one with the baby dolls parts.
I wasn’t able to get much of her work, but her art mostly focuses on Dia De Los Muertos style and neat religious imagery.

If that style is what you’re into then I would recommend you checking out her Etsy right here or her facebook.
For anyone interested in old Hollywood glam, I urge you to check out her facebook.
Other awesome stores were Zombee Candle. They had exotic scents influenced by witch craft themes.
A tattoo shop, that also specializes in art and photography, Voodoux Tattoux, were selling kickass paintings made by the owners.
Aw yes, Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas!
Last store was Factory Gurlz Productions, LLC, Their work specializes in 50’s-60’s culture, but I did see some Dia De Los Muertos works.
I wanted to buy everything…
I hope I’m able to document more events for you all soon! Until then, stay groovy.
