Jessica Galbreth: From Dark Art to True Light Jessica Galbreth was a famous "fantasy" artist who specialized in painting vampires and gothic goddesses until one day life began to imitate art.
First of all, I've been a fan of hers for years. Almost a decade. I have several pieces of her work and I've never got any "demonic" or "satanic" vibe off of any of her pieces. Especially because the majority of her work was bright and colorful. One of her early renditions of Selene actually looks like my mother. By saying the occult lets in demons, I feel personally insulted by someone who used to be my hero. I even did my Sophomore art final on her. Also, on her blog she stated over and over again that she wasn't ashamed of her old artwork, but that it just wasn't who she was anymore. Yeah, throwing it in a dumpster definitely looks like you're not ashamed Jessica. I'm glad she's happy, and I do like a lot of her new artwork, but I feel like she's jumped on the bandwagon with everyone else about "Oh I used to do this occult stuff and then there were these demons messing up my life". Honestly, I do artwork very similar to what she used to do. And you know what? I've often had the images pop into my head while I was IN CHURCH. I've talked to my pastor about it and he says it's inspiration from God and that those pieces should always be on the top of my list.
No offense Jess, but you're alienating a large sector of your fans. But I'm glad you're happy.
