Season's Bleedings, Friends!
Over the past year and half you may have noticed a certain bloody absence in your inbox. As with many people, 2016 was an exceptionally challenging year, which pulled my focus away from art-making. Happily, this is not to say that Beauty in Blood experienced an uneventful year. Here's a quick look back at what you may have missed in 2016...
