Plaid and big hats

Another 60's inspired gal. Acrylic on canvas...and prismacolor marker for the outline because I didn't have a small enough brush.

Sticking Plaster

My brother and I both love Tintin comics, so in celebration of this (and the forth coming film!) and the fact that tomorrow is my brother's birthday, I made him this card! It's actually an accordian card in real life..but reads as a strip anyway. I used potatoshop for coloring and text.
I'm quite tempted to do more Tintin fan art...who knows, maybe there'll be a blog dedicated to Tintin fan art in the near future (or is there one already?), just in time for the movie release!

60's Glam and Go Go

I've spent the last week toggling through the Sartorialist's blog and various vintage flickr pages for inspiration. Voilá! Sketches aplenty! However, after a stressful last couple of weeks, all I wanted to do was some mindless copying of reference photos. At least that way you don't have to worry about composition and rendering and stuff. Anyway, I'm not going to post those, BUT they did inspire me to do an Illustrator painting...which unintentionally turned out to be a go-go Mary Poppins. And in fact, I have at least another two 60's style sketches in the works.

Happy 2010!

Happy New Year!
Here are a few paintings I did for christmas. First, a 'history of cameras' set for my friend who is into photography. Acrylic on acrylic board paper (it's actually really nice to paint on!). Probably should've done these in gouache, but seeing as the price of gouache has spun wildly out of control recently, no gouache for me. Stupidly, I took photos of the paintings when they were in frames and had a hard time getting around the the colors aren't exact. >.<;

A digital painting for my future aunt and uncle-in-law! This is the church where they got married about 5 years ago.
