inspired by babyart - batgirl edition

“batgirl” (detail) 2015

posting the above pic on instagram prompted quite a few reinterpretations - pretty russian girls (predominantly) making themselves scary and unpretty in the name of babyart cosplay

a few people also commenting it looks like plaaastic - which it does - but it was actually based on a painting i did back in 2001 - as plaaastic apparently always a fan of my work, it’s possible she may have styled her hair after that painting? - i doubt it really ...tho she did dye her hair blue inspired by another of my paintings

“black” (detail) 2001 - and plaaastic circa 2014






and lastly kedism quality from a couple of years ago - she was also my inspiration! (eyes and spot by nose)

"virtual gallery" now open

an "art for sale" section added to my web site - just in time for christmas! - basically this is most everything that is unsold and available at this time - and being sold directly from me! - hopefully ending up on the walls of fans - inquiries welcome at baby_art [at] hotmail.com - if it isn't listed it's old and sold - or new and not yet available...



旧作にはなりますが、baby art 直接の販売ということで、

trevor 作品を本当に愛してくださる方に、

Trevor Brown

tama - rosette exhibition

vanilla gallery 21 november to 03 december - 500yen

so happy to meet tama again and see new works (i apologise for being hopeless to talk to, tama!)

my shopping haul: post cards, book and mirror - the book is a limited (?) "best of" collection published by the gallery - hard cover in slipcase - A4 size - does contain several new previously unpublished works - supplemented by a couple of post card sets - tho still i think some works in the exhibition yet to be printed (wah! i need everything!)

this was my favourite - predictably! - and, predictably, it had already sold   : /

mirror - there were also badges and stickers and things, and a calendar - but i don't even know what day of the week it is,  i never use calendars (except maybe for marking tama exhibition dates!)

15 November 2017


a book currently in production of the nananano “trecos” (trevor cosplay) works - 22 altogether - we wanted to do a few more new ones but other members of “the team” (the photographer, make-up and cg artists) howled in protest - the book will however include some behind-the-scenes offshot photos 

an exhibition being planned at span art gallery the first week of february to coincide with the book’s release - as the work previously shown at span art, i actually really wanted to do the exhibition in osaka - but that never worked out - are there no good galleries anywhere any more? (that want me!) [don’t answer that, rhetorical question] 

i think it’ll be more a nananano exhibition than a trevor brown exhibition, as i have depleted original works available (only half a dozen?) - there is one nice new (i.e. unseen) painting tho - doll artist mari shimizu called in to provide some back-up - she’ll be making a new doll inspired by my work(!) - and there’ll be a book-signing event, needless to say - more detais later...

inspired by babyart - bumper halloween special

kedizmquality - "tooth fairy" - every year she excels at this trevor cosplay thing (that's now become such a thing!)

babyakaneko - "grave robber", "burned out" and "pink rose" - i'm pretty sure she's my number one biggest fan in japan - so, not to be out-beaten, she's made three entries - but she already won my heart years ago

yukino mishima and nurse friend - "i-nazi" / "nursie" - as this is an "unofficial" photo, i actually wonder if the restroom mirror selfie was intentional?

ice pinooo - first of the "fix-me-doll"s this halloween

nerunerunenene - "fix-me-doll" - too cute!

6ed2819fa3e4473 (hope i spelt that correctly) - "fix-me-doll - she's just on a night out and not expecting to be featured on the trevor brown blog

tinycircus93 - "fix-me-doll" - a "melissa from london", which makes me happy for some reason

kissmedeadlydoll - "fix-me-doll" - this one also an unexpected delight coming out of nowhere

plaaastic - nothing specific, just "inspired by you, trevor"

404bunny - another non-specific ("babyart inspired") tb nurse - ha!, as if i now own the copyright on nurses?!?

i.xaa - ditto : )

stevesparkle - turquoise

hentaisu - "harlequin girl" and "infinity" (detail) from "lil miss sticky kiss"

kedizmquality (again) - effortlessly being "lil miss sticky kiss" - this is actually an old pic, i don't think i've posted before?

dark princess youtube - "yurei" - nice photo but i'm a little miffed about it - it got over 10k likes on instagram - but i got nothing - no credit or tag or link or anything - and she was kinda intimating it was her idea ("look my halloween ideas on youtube") - humph!

destroyed my world - "yurei" again - and this time with a respectful "inspired by babyart" credit

katrin de nya - "fight" - this also got over 10k likes on instagram - i'm tagged, but it seems these hidden in image tags aren't seen by many - i should insist on links in the description - of course, many of these are russian girls are actually inspired by sheidlina as much as (or actually far more than) they are by me - sigh! - anyway, whatever, i rather like this photo

rgiil - "cockroach is my only friend" - her cockroaches have escaped?

itnikiash - "cockroach is my only friend" - seems to be a favourite for cosplay lately - soft toys replacing cockroaches here - rather aggressive soft toys judging by her wounds!

larsen baby - "appleheart" - nice attention to detail

darkswan art - "anatomia" - !!!

finally my own bit of halloween "cosplay" - a photo version of my "beast 666" drawing from 1991
