Gothettes In Training: Brooches and Creepy Cute Artwork by Jade Kuei

Jade Kuei is a designer and artist who has created a lovely collection of creepy cute art and wearable objects suitable for younger souls. Her Mumbot shop on Etsy (and other brick and mortar boutiques) "illustrates whimsical yet haunted abstractions of her own dreams and experiences."

Originally referred to as the "Hot girl in the comic shop" by one of the Courtesan's gentleman friends, her images acknowledge the scary things a child may encounter, but also embraces them. The little ones in her pieces always have the superpowers to overcome their fears, much like her son Everest.

My favorite piece is the sweet vampire/little red riding hood brooch...(seems like a theme this month).
