Nicole (Birmingham) Garcia
Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
Artist Nicole (Birmingham) Garcia AKA Living Dead Girl Nicole has been doing art since she was a young batling. When asked to describe herself, Nicole will answer you with the quote she is most known for ‘when other little girls wanted to be ballerinas, I wanted to be Elvira’. If something is odd or macabre Nicole is drawn to it. She finds beauty in all things dark, spooky and mythical. Aspects of that always come through in her artwork as an extension of herself.

Nicole was the little girl who was using markers to make her Barbie dolls look "different", using crayons to enter coloring contests to win tickets to the circus and wishing she had a little baby brother so Jareth the Goblin King would come and take them away to his castle.

When given an assignment in school she always found a way to make her work stand out from the rest. When all the other kids were doing their drawings on pretty colorful birds, Nicole was doing hers on an owl in mid flight hunting a mouse. She picked up at a young age that art was another outlet for her. She could use it to express who she was and what she loved. Even if it was not the norm.

Nicole has continued to express herself in all aspects of life from her own personal fashion sense to her artwork. Even as an adult Nicole will tell you that she sees herself as a mixture of Elvira meets Jem. "Give me spooky and creepy with a side of glitter and glam... that's me!"

Living Dead Girl Nicole was a name that stuck with her thanks to her love for horror and all things that rock. What started as a screen name due to her admiration for Rob Zombie stuck with her when people started to associate her artwork with the name as well.

She found it rather fitting as Rob Zombie had always been someone that inspired her as an artist. She could relate to his work and it always reminded her that it’s ok to break
out of your shell and to continue doing what you love no matter how dark the genre is. If people wanted to associate her and her artwork in that way then she was honored
to be known by it.

Nicole enjoys anything that gets her creative blood flowing. She uses her creativity to work in various mediums and to support the things she is passionate about. Known for her portraits, wearable Dead Girl Decay accessories and undead zombie creations; she also enjoys photography, desktop publishing and using makeup as an art form. She is also the creator and captain of the Etsy Massacre Team. She created this Etsy Team when she realized there was no other teams on Etsy that catered to artists inspired by the horror movie industry. Since then many new teams have formed but she is proud to say she created the 1st of it's kind. Nicole was the Promotions Coordinator for the band Axe Man's Bridge and has also teamed up with the band One Eyed Doll. Nicole's work has been a part of both band's merch line. She was also discovered by Joy Love who has since teamed up with Nicole to contribute to her up and coming website, FinalGirl.com (sister company of HorrorHound Ltd.). Nicole and her husband are members of the Hardcore Hearse Club. Since becoming members, Nicole has taken lead of creating the club's website and maintaining it. Projects aside, Nicole is a full time marketing assistant for a design and installation company.

Nicole also uses her artwork to give back. She has donated her work and volunteered her time to bring a creative spin to good causes through benefits, fundraisers and sales through her Etsy shop. Nicole is a prime example that there are no limits to a creative mind even when it has a touch of creepy.

Nicole's biggest artistic inspiration has always been her father Tom Birmingham. Having a father who was an artist gave her a creative edge. When other kids were still learning how to color in the lines, Nicole was asking her father to show her how to shade to make her art stand out. He showed her creativity was limitless and how using things around the house could easily make your work more intriguing (who knew white out could transform into a starry sky). Not only did he help her to advance her skills but most importantly, always believed in her and her talent.

Artist's who inspire Nicole's creepy little imagination to run
free and embrace her dreams, fantasies and nightmares are:

Jim Henson

Tim Burton

Rob Zombie

Brian Froud

Dave Hartman

Cleve Hall

Tom Savini

Eric Pigors

Chad Savage

J. Anthony Kosar

Hey everyone! I am a long time Deviant but first time poster. I have a question for my fellow artists out there. 

I currently hand draw all of my portraits. I am looking to get them put on to T-Shirts. I have 2 dilemmas... 

1. All my work is hand drawn with pencil, charcoal, colored pencil etc. So no layered digital files

2. I can't afford to buy a huge batch of shirts upfront. I would want to sell these as a made to order item in my Etsy shop or directly from my website. 

Right now I got them on RedBubble and RageOn! but they are not really the look I am going for. I want these to look like the shirts you see at the store. Doesn't have to be silkscreen. Could be direct print to garment. 

Any feedback would be highly appreciated. You can check out my work in my galleries here: livingdeadgirlnicole.deviantar…
