Greetings my little meanypizzles! We're back from Disneyland and I'm stocked with a fresh batch of ideas for my upcoming art pieces. Just when I thought my imagination was fizzling out we go on a trip to the good ol' magic kingdom to recharge my creative batteries. Disneyland was fun, however I don't recommend going on a weekend or during a Los Angeles heat wave. Ugh, sweaty and waiting in lines while getting your feet ran over by strollers just isn't that appealing. Last time I checked in I was working on befriending my imagination, and BOY, DID I!!!. For an assignment in class I put together and Academy of Art School of Animation poster and my campaign slogan was of course "Befriend your Imagination!" Heres the final product. I only gave you a shoddy ol' photo of the image in the middle and somewhat cut off my slogan and the school graphics. There is no free advertising for the Academy here! This here poster measures 20" x 30" and I have to say it is one of the larger pieces I've done lately. I used color pencil, watercolor and a black ink pen for it. My favorite monster is the little, chubby brown fella with the horns. He reminds me of a pinto bean, and I'm pretty sure we'd be friends in real life if he was in one of my classes. In MY real life, we moved this weekend. Its amazing how much crap I've accumulated in the past year! Some random things I've found in my closet: 1 large shoe box of vegetable/fruit shaped Christmas ornaments, a Leprechaun shaped button, a Mimi chewed lamp that I convinced myself I could fix. Oh I know you are all super excited for me to have an estate sale now that I've enticed you with some goods.
