Hey Blue Eyes by A.L. Burke
"I’ve been drawing pretty much forever, but didn’t really start working at it until I was in high school. I started painting in 2008." A.L. says she loves acrylic paint and pens, and that she used to be terrified of spiders. " I started painting them as a way of facing that fear, and I‘ve since become pretty obsessed with them."

A Dusty Old Gentleman by A.L. Burke
"I draw inspiration from pretty much everything, really. Usual suspects are ghost stories, dreams, David Lynch, nature, history, death lore, horror movies, phobias and creepy-crawlies."
