Eat. Sleep. Create. Repeat.

Hi, I'm Nicole Jakus. I live in Chicago with the two furriest roommates, my cat Socks and my boyfriend James. In all aspects of my life I usually gravitate towards things that are either very dark or very cute and it is reflected in what I create. I hope to one day live off of my art and will keep trying until that dream comes true. Please join me in this journey, any amount of support makes a big difference.

The best part about Darling Homebody is that you don't even have to make your cat get off of your lap in order to support an independent artist and treat yourself to something creepy & cute at the same time.

Also available at these stores!

Paperish Mess - Chicago

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

If you are a legitimate retailer and wish to place a wholesale order with me please send your inquiry to darlinghomebody@gmail.com for more information and a link to my catalog.

I think my package is lost?

First, is it past your "delivery window"? Etsy gives you an estimate of when your package should arrive, if it is not past the last day of that estimate please be patient and wait until then. If it is, please contact me so that I can either submit a lost parcel claim or send a replacement.

What underrated horror movies do you recommend?

1. The Clove Hitch Killer, especially if you have father issues.
2. Behind The Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon, a half-found footage half-satire slasher movie documenting a killer-in-training that doesn't get overly goofy.
3. Spontaneous, basically if John Green wrote a horror movie.
4. The Domestics, your typical post apocalyptical road trip movie with some really cool character concepts. Think The Walking Dead mixed with The Purge.
