A bit late, but here none the less! This is what I am working on now - a fancy Miss Punky. For those who don't know - Miss Punky is my boss's PomChi (Pomeranian + Chihuahua) who likes to eat your foods and have her tummy rubbed. She's surprisingly quiet; she'll sit and watch you until you pet or feed her. If she's really hungry she'll do a little dance. Her winter hair cut makes her look like Simba from The Lion King. She's a sweetheart.
The painting above was done by George Romney. I chose it for this project for a variety of reasons, but mostly because of her hat. I felt like Miss Punky needed a ridiculous hat.
This is part one of four (I think), so hopefully before the next assignment comes out I'll at least have part two or three posted.
So far this project has been enjoyable, if not amusing to my boyfriend. : )
In other news, my prints and new business cards arrived for the art market this Saturday and they are looking mighty nice. Well, the business cards are a little off, but all the information is readable which is the important part. The image itself isn't cut off either. And I only ordered 100, so if they go half as fast as they did at DCC I don't anticipate leftovers for CTNX. So the next order should come out better. But the prints themselves are BEAUTIFUL and FOR SALE.
Said boyfriend will also be there at the art market. He will be doing a live painting "demo" of a creature...which from what I've seen of the prep work he's been doing...will certainly be interesting. I won't say more than that since everybody should come check it out!
Bit of a busy month that June. Denver Comic Con was amazing! Got to see my family. Got to see Raul's family. Got to see Lady Katherine. Got a late start on the next homework assignment for the Magic Box. Hopefully I'll be posting that before the next assignment comes out. >< Anyways, hoping everyone will have a great 4th of July! (And if USA's Independence Day means little to you then have a great weekend!!)
Next weekend (Saturday July 13th) I will be sharing a booth with Raul Ramos at the Water Tower Art and Craft Market taking place at the Rocky Mountain College or Art and Design campus. He will be displaying creature designs and possibly doing a demo, while I will have character focused art - and even print cards available of the 4 Beauties of China!! (If you can't make it to the event, but are interested in purchasing a print to help me fund raise for the upcoming CTNX in November, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, supplies are limited!) Fellow RMCAD alum and Oatley Academy student A.J. "Stewped" Young who I met at DCC will also be there!
Overall it promises to be a fantastic day and I'm super excited to see ALL THE PEOPLE!! So please come say hi! : )
