    Morbid Fashion

My name is Zoetica Ebb. I’m a Moscow-born, LA-raised artist, writer and photographer, dedicated to proving that life is as beautiful as we make it.

Right now, I live in Dublin, Ireland and am working on Alien Botany — an art series dedicated to beastly flora and antique botanical illustration. One of these pieces is featured in the upcoming Outside the Lines – a one-of-a-kind coloring book featuring art by 100+ artists, for kids and grownups alike, from Penguin Books.

I’m also working on The Secret Guide to Alternative Beijing – a video travel guide series giving insight into the skyrocketing alternative art, fashion, music, and nightlife culture in Beijing. On this project, I function as curator, co-director and host. The initial phase of The Secret Guide was funded through Kickstarter. This is my second Kickstarter effort – in 2011, I raised $8,400 for D4RT – a project aiming to bring art classes and supplies to a developing village in the Peruvian Amazon jungle, where I taught an introductory kids’ art workshop and, together with village locals, painted a mural on the school wall. I’d like to do this again sometime.

In 2011, I launched GHST RDR – my first foray into fashion design in collaboration with Adriana Fulop of Toronto label, Plastik Wrap. GHST RDR is a mini-collection consisting of an architectural, retro-futuristic jacket-and-skirt combo, inspired by Victorian riding fashion and anime robots.

In recent years, I worked as a culture writer and photographer for RedBull’s Chinashop Magazine [RIP], specializing in urban exploration and art coverage. I visited independent businesses and the studios of fellow artists and fashion designers, documenting creative spaces and conducting interviews. From 2007 to 2012 I was part of Coilhouse – a magazine and blog I co-founded, billed as “a love letter to alternative culture”. During my time with Coilhouse, I functioned as co-editor, project manager, merchandise designer, writer and illustrator, interviewing Clive Barker and Grant Morrison among many other luminaries.

I’m an infrequent contributor to Haute Macabre.

Hire Me!

I’m available for a variety of assignments. Please drop me a line for rates and further discussion.

Services

Illustration

The talents of Bilibin, Zvorykin, Dmitriev and Rackham breathed life into the stories that fed my imagination as a kid – it’s no surprise that I began to draw the moment I could hold a pencil. Today, I love creating imagery that helps take novels, stories, articles, brands and posters to another level.

Fine Art

Painting is my muse, ink and oil are my indulgence. I paint on canvas, wood, walls or paper, and specialize in portraits, surreal plant-life, creatures and otherworldly vixens. I’m open to most types of commissions and will work with you to accurately capture your vision.

Tattoo Design

Treat yourself or your dearhearts to a gift that lasts a lifetime with original tattoo designs created just for you, be it tentacles, snorkeling mermaids, skeletal birds or pretty robots. Contact me with your questions and ideas for a quote.

Fashion Design

I’m available for collaboration on fashion projects, whether that means T-shirt designs or entire avant garde pieces. I have my own mini-collection with Toronto future fashion pioneers, Plastik Wrap. If you’re a company or design house and have a proposal in mind, I’d love to hear from you.

Branding

I create unique, distinct art components for all your brand identity and merchandising needs.

Journalism

I have years of experience in editing, writing and interviewing, with a special interest in arts, travel, fashion, sociology and new technologies. Passionate about in-depth essays, speedy quips and incisive reportage alike, I’m available for all of the above and more.

Photography

From in-the-field photojournalism, travel coverage, urban exploration, dynamic headshots and promotional band photos, to fashion editorials and portraits – I shoot it all.
