Author Judith Graves is going black, black, black this weekend. These two huge walls have been painted black in her honor. And this corner of a coffee house will be the scene of a graveyard, complete with crows and roses.
A goth dream...or nightmare, as the case may be.
So break out the black eyeliner and lipstick and head on over to the party. Everyone's invited--goth or not.
WHERE: BeanTrees coffee house
5112 50 St
Cold Lake AB, T9M 1X2
WHO: Mural created by Lauri Ansell, based on illustrations within Under My Skin (UMS), created by Val Cox
WHY: To celebrate the launch of UMS written by author Judith Graves
Ta, da! The finished product. And if you're curious about the original art on which this was based, here are some of the great illustrations by Val Cox that Lauri used.
If you can't get to Cold Lake, Alberta, this weekend--or even if you can--you can enjoy seeing these pictures of a work in progress. Even better, watch it unfold via vlog. And meet Judith and Lauri in person.
So if you're into the paranormal, love werewolves, vamps, sprites, and other beasts that haunt graveyards, Bean Trees is the place to be this Saturday night. Great music, stuff to eat and drink, and lots of paranorms roaming the crowd...
Come celebrate with us...
