Our Fabulous Sponsor for July is Ike's Art!

Ike's Art is a name a lot of you may know.  She has some awesome creep inspired images and is a wonderful artist!  My love of her work began almost a year ago when I bought my first dark image called "The Tell Tale Heart"!  I got it and inspiration struck and it became a box of wood covered paper that opened to reveal the beating heart of the story by Edgar Allan Poe!  I was in love with Ike's Art and Mr. Poe!   Quoth

Ike's Art sponsors so many of the challenges we know and love and her generosity knows no bounds!  She also hosts two challenge blogs of her own!  Ike's World Challenge runs every fortnight and (get this!) every new challenge she gives away a fantastic freebie!  Not talking about a small thingy but an exquisite image free for you to download!   And then she has the the fabulous challenge blog Quoth the Raven, dedicated to the man himself, Edgar Allan Poe!  Please check out these challenges you will be very glad you did!

But you hear me talk all the time so here are some words from the fabulous Ike!
"Hi there – I am Ike……a nickname that I got hooked with many years ago due to my surname, and in my profession at that time, …… they just loved to give nicknames .

OK – potted history ….. I was born in the UK, went to art college, worked as a Cop for 30 years, had me 1 fabulous daughter, lived on an island, retired and moved to another island, became a grandmother, do my own thing :-D

I live in Greece now and have a passion for kitties I have 6 house cats and several interlopers that I feed at the windows. This number grows all the time as the kitty telegraph goes around…. I think it’s up to 16 now !! I also have 8 English Light Sussex chickens that I reared myself in an incubator

I am a complete nutter or should I say I’m ‘zany’ hahaha. I have a very strange/sick sense of humour and I must admit I spend a lot of time talking to myself. !! Well, I get more sense out of me.! I reckon in a few years I shall be known as the “crazy cat lady”

I am an artist and have a strange mind when it comes to creating my art. I either go completely true to life… right down to the last hair… or I go totally surreal. I have a passion for all things horror/Gothic etc. I’ve always loved horror films and books and I guess that’s why it creeps into my stuff !
Had I been a bit younger I swear I would have been a Goth……luuuuuv it.
Next time around I am gonna be a witch or a cat "
