Thanks for making Meat Cake Bible a dream come true for 25 years! 

In other news
Dame Darcy's Mermaid Tarot has been in print and selling since 2012!
 To celebrate the success of this self published venture, I have now reissued a 3rd edition with new and improved borders and production, plus 22 all new illustrations!

With each order will now come individual sea themed and mermaid spells as well as one of a kind die cut stickers.

We pride ourselves on being multicultural and LBGT and this is reflected more than ever in the new images on these cards, because acceptance of diversity is the way things were initially in Atlantis and thanks to the Goddess the Patriarchy is crumbling and things are going back to the right way all along. 




(A note from LED) As I'm writing this we only have 18 left of edition 2! The moment that edition sells out I'll post edition 3 for sale and send you a quick update email to let you know it's been listed! 

The Raffle
I didn't forget about the raffle, and yes we have sold many items valued at $75 and I promise we are keeping your name in the list. But the amount has not yet reached the value of the painting. 
When it does we will announce the raffle winner and send you the painting. 
I promise! Until then yes, please keep 'em coming. And again when you order art of any kind valued at $75 or more on my store you are eligible to win this painting. 

Go Shopping!!


And now a word from LED who is an inspiration and a dream. We work together to run this whole thing and without her none of this would be possible. Laura is a creative force in her own right and an up and coming artist herself :) 

Hello sweet Dame Darcy lovers! I'm so excited to share with you my first completed short animation! It's a 35 second, trippy romp through space with some characters you may recognize from my Tarot in Space! Have a look!

Greetings From the Haunted House

Greetings to you my Darlings, from the haunted house in Savannah where the ghosts and dolls and I reside to draw my dreams. 



Just illustrated the Tell Tale Heart for Seven Stores Press for the Graphic Novel Classics compilation Graphic Cannon, compiled by Russ Kick. 

Tell Tale Heart is quite possibly my favourite short story of all time as it makes me laugh so much. 

The narrator tries so hard to convince you of his sanity, but in doing so reveals more about his insanity than his dark deed does itself. 
It's kind of ironic really. 

He mistakes the pounding of his own heart with that of the old man’s and uses it as a prompt to murder him. 

This was always a favorite tale of mine, I'll never forget when I heard it first on a record from the library I got while in 4th grade. 
It really exemplifies the twisted reality of a murderers mind. 
I am so honored to do my rendition of this horror classic. 




















So I can now offer you 10 illustrations from this project now framed and available as fine art. 
They are 8 1/2 x 11 inches framed. Each illustration is $75. 

As a special all 10 can go for $700. total  If you want to keep the story in sequence. 
Please indicate in the etsy comments you wish to do so and i will hold the other 9. 

Payment plans are welcome.


Also, we have a Gasoline special going on on Etsy.com/damedarcy, and I'm offering a special where if you get anything over the price of $75, you will receive a free copy of Gasoline, hand signed with an illustration to you or a loved one. 


Other Black and white pen and ink illustrations for the low cost of money now available as well to choose from :) Framed and ready for hanging or as a gift to your love for upcoming Valentines Day. 



All Patrons get this book for free for this month's reward, also so much more! 



In other News, Lisa Carver (SuckDog, Rollerderby zine, plus more)  and I are planning a world wide come back tour for her new book I illustrated : The Jaywalker. 
It will be a super fun immersive theatre performance art, rock opera, spectacle, and we will be offering friends and fans prizes and discounts on tickets, and may be coming to your town! 
Just got a go pro for x mas and learning to edit and post video/ animation so soon I'll be able to share this with you as well through a video series. 
It's gonna be a lot of fun and a lot of wacky talented and beautiful ladies! 


And now a quick word from my friend and intern, LED:

Hello! This is LED, I now have phone cases, stickers, and prints available of my Tarot in Space! cards on Storenvy! Click the picture to see more :) 



We will be posting more details about tour dates for the upcoming year. 

Love, 
Dame Darcy

Best Wishes to you for the Yule Tide Season!

Best Wishes to you for the Yule Tide Season!



I think what wove the fabric of my soul to be this way, were all the treasures in the victorian houses in my neighborhood growing up. 

The old widows faded away in a back room while I played with my childhood friend (who grew up to be Jared Gold the amazing fashion designer extraordinaire. Only reason I mention this detail is because I wanted you to picture my friend as being a boy.) 

Jared's Unique Fashion Design
Video


We had these amazing houses full of cast off costumes, toys, antiques, art supplies, tree houses, 50's cars, trunks of old pirate treasures, and over grown gardens with rusty swing sets full of flowers and raspberries and ghosts.

My 2016 Calendar! For sale now on Etsy. Click here!


 All of this to ourselves. The old ladies were always asleep and didn't want to be bothered. One of them had nine children all grown and gone leaving us afternoon hours to dress in 20's clothes and play board games from the 60's (Mystery Date and Operation) Bobsie Twins mysteries, 1940's boy scout manuals, and mad libs. 

 He would play the white shiny lacquer baby grand like a champ in the gigantic play room, with acres of green carpet as a velvety lawn stretching out beneath a chandelier and arched ceiling. 




We ate home made apple pie off plates printed with pictures of silent movie stars, presidents and the state of Idaho. 

 There was an all pink room with pink curtains even a pink rotary working phone. 
We got in a fight in that room, I threw scissors at him.  It had something on the wall that said Babes in Toyland, I think it was a 78 record maybe? A kids story.  (Not the 90's punk girl band! Ha!)   



I got a strange flesh colored dress from the closet in that room, the frock was printed with ballerinas and grey roses and had big cloth covered buttons. I wore it until high school and it ripped to ribbons. 

There were secret rooms and closets leading into other rooms, one closet had a small circular window and had been converted into a perfect tiny doll house / play room. 

If I could have one day like that back again I would cry from happiness. That it was even my childhood at all is an amazing blessing. 

 I've wanted to go to House on the Rock for decades, I hear it has this same kind of feeling. 
House on the Rock


Through my art and dreams all I ever do over and over again is try to process or recreate the atmosphere and the beauty. 

Nature is hyper real and perfectly beautiful. 
Dolls live in a super unreal surrealistic hyperfection world of fantasy. 
When one is raised in these two worlds anything else is stifling ugly and tedious in its mundaneness.

Happy Dollydays!
