The Prince Project has finally come to its end! I produced one illustration everyday for 365 days without skipping a single one! Its been a crazy ride, thanks to everyone who supported my project! I hope To do a gallery show and a book now that the project is over. Stay tuned for stickers and other merchandise as well! I think the last illustration is pretty epic, I hope you all love it!!! THANK YOU!!!
I must confess I have no idea what the blue animal on the left is. I inked it in, looked at it…and died laughing. I was at my moms house having tea when I was doing the color, and I asked her what animal it looked like. She thought it looked most like a hippo. So I decided to make it blue and see if it would pass as a hippo. When I got home I posted it & minutes later I was called out by a coworker! I died laughing again. It would have been so easy to fix my “hippo”, but I gave him life.
I did this in my book “Mama Wrex” as well. There was a horseshoe crab in one of illustrations and he just looked utterly drunk. I could have fixed him, sobered him up. Nope he made it to the cover of the book. You can buy the book at Barnes & Noble with my drunk crab drooling on the cover. 🙂
& then some animals are purposly made to look crazy…..
I posted a hipster version of prince and literally the second my finger came off the post button my phone went bing bing bing ! Most liked Prince illustration so far! So I created a second hipster for you all, and I would like to say thank you!!!
Sometimes I think I really want to be a hipster… but I’m totally doing it all wrong all day. Also besides listening to Prince, my taste in music is pretty bad. As for my style random would be a good descriptive word… I have some vintage cat eyes that I rock, moccasins, Dr. Martins, leggings in the winter, and fit and flare dresses the second the weather gets warmer. Ive been known to wear a little plaid from time to time but hipster I’m not. Style confused maybe! ha ha
When I was a kid my mom would always put my gloves on after I was loaded into my snowsuit. My snow suit was pretty much like the one Ralphies brother was forced to wear in “A Christmas Story”. I alway wondered as a child how I would get my mittens on without my mom, when I became an adult and lived on my own. I would waddle at full speed away from the neighbor kids who always wanted to pelt me with snow balls…good times!!!
Conformity…I think we are all guilty, even those of us who try fight it. I was scrolling on Facebook and I saw the “Hans Solo season is upon us” Meme and I started dying laughing. I’m totally guilty of the tall boot & legging trend! I wish I wasn’t, but sadly its my winter uniform. When it starts getting warmer I will start wearing my other uniform, sundresses and sandals. All my dresses are fitted on top and flared at the bottom…I guess its just my thing. Do I have any business making fun of college girls who rock uggs, pink sweats, and north face coats… not really!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane ! It’s Prince…? Hope everyone has a super day!!!
Prince is on the cover of Essence Magazine this month!!!
