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!!!

357-358 confessions

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…..

355-356 Bubba Gump & The Bees Knees

My father always say’s his favorite movie is Forest Gump, so this one is for my Dad! He thinks its hilarious that Forest is responsible for all the historical events in the movie. Great Movie!

I love bees! I don’t know why, I always have. Sometimes I will find one trapped near the screen window, I will convince the bee to crawl on my finger or a piece of paper and set him free out the window. I have never been stung, and I am not afraid! Someday I would like to try my hand at bee keeping. I am pretty sure other people in the building I live in would appreciate me waiting until I have my own house. 🙂 Maybe I could just be like the chick from “Pushing Daisies” she had a crazy set up for her bee’s on the roof of her apartment. That was a good tv show, too bad it was cancelled!

353-354 Getting punked!

10422121_10153627462428056_2829689829313170932_n

I used to work late nights at a CVS in Aiken, South Carolina. One night I looked up from the register and there was a man just standing waiting to get rung up. He had one singular roll of toilet paper in his hand and his wee wee was just pulled out of his zipper. I just rang him up and ignored him and his man parts. I will always wonder why, did he lose a bet. Maybe he had OCD and giving it the shake just wasn’t going to cut it. Or I was possibly just getting punked…all I know is he didn’t get any reaction out of me at all that night. I guess this is my delayed reaction. This is my nod to that dude…whatever his deal was. 🙂

And now some Wizard of Oz… this blog doesn’t have to make any sense at all…clearly!

351-352 Kentucky & Rainbows

Everyone in Kentucky is so excited for the Prince concerts! I heard they started the tour in Louisville because its the drummers hometown. I guess so many people wanted to go to the show they are having four concerts.  I went to Louisville in October for a week & a half. Before the trip I wanted to know what Louisville was known for. Apparently every one has a story  of someone they know who dated Tom Cruise at some point(Tom Cruise is from Louisville), Slugger bats, Fried Chicken, & Hunter S Thompson. I had to do a Fear and Loathing illustration even though it seems once removed from my original Kentucky concept. I loved Louisville its a very cool city! I hope everyone who gets to see Prince has an awesome time!

Lately I have been getting lots of Prince ideas from coworkers, Thats where Rainbow Brite Prince was conceptualized . Rainbow Brite had to happen! Its not often I can go full on rainbow crazy when I do an illustration ! 10984614_10153625116628056_2374448170540227947_n

Here are a few photos from my Louisville trip! The First Photo is from 21-C-Museum-Hotel which I loved visiting, the next photo is a view from Falls of the Ohio State Park, And the Third is from Spinellis pizzeria, awesome pizza by the way! Its not everyday you get to sit in a sick car and shove your face with pizza!

349-350 behind the scenes

I falling a little behind on my blog…not too terrible though! Today I am posting for days 349 &350 but in actuality I am on day 354! Sometimes I choose not to photograph parts of the Prince illustrations so they look better aesthetically when I post them. When I do this though some of the little fun quirks go missing. These two are good examples!

347-348 Hang gliding & Afternoons at the Park

Seurat’s painting “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte” reminds me of spring…it snowed pretty steady all night, and most of the day today. If someone were spray paint the glass panes of my window white I probably wouldn’t notice. Thats what you see when you look out…just white.

So I wanted to bring some spring into my home !I bought flowers and a plant at Trader Joe’s today! I love that place. The food is so inexpensive, I feel like I’m playing some weird game with myself when I shop there… Lets see how much food I can toss in the cart and try brake over the $100 dollar mark. Today I only hit $70, that place is so damn cheap. My cupboards/freezer are so full! I always feel like I robbed the store. I like to buy pre made frozen food for the freezer for my lazy days?( I know how to cook I swear!) I just throw any old thing in the cart when i’m in that section. I don’t even look half the time. I haven’t found anything gross yet. Thats how I discovered Cowgirl bark its white chocolate with cranberries, pieces of ginger snaps,pretzels, peanuts ,almonds, and I think pieces of rice cake…addictive! I would never in my right mind play this sick game in a another grocery store, because the clerk at the register would have to take items out so I could pay the bill…  and then I would have to slink out of there in embarrassment ! lol  I don’t have the bank account for that game! Any how here is Todays Prince & The Original Seurat Painting!

345-346

I really liked the way my Norman Rockwell Prince came out on Sunday, so I wanted to do another famous work of art today. So today I did my version of Klimt’s “The Kiss”. Its fun studying the artwork while working on a piece there are a lot of details you miss and do not appreciate. I love the hands in this painting…thats what captures the love for me!

So here is my version with Prince & also Klimts!

344 Self Portraits

Twenty One Left to Go!

I was texting with my boyfriend (the very handsome Kurt) earlier today, and I was trying to think of a really good Prince to do today. He suggested Norman Rockwell’s Self portrait. I loved it, and went for it! So thank you Kurt for the lovely idea! I really want the last illustrations to be veeeery nice…as Borat would say! I forgot all the details in this painting. Clips of artwork from Durer, Rembrandt, Picasso, and Van Gogh he is using as reference guides. The glass of wine balanced on the book. A good challenge for a snowy day!

TripleSelf 10406643_10153602235398056_5135869134407042918_n

Then I started thinking of self portraits… What self portraits have I done? several in art school…but I have none to share. Maybe another day I will post them with some stories. All I have is this one done about a year ago.

10390293_10152918048938056_6687986151110905569_n 10464356_10152918048853056_654283849876108110_n

I did this illustration as a gift for Kurt for his birthday.I need to frame it for him eventually. I think I need to re-draw myself…I can do better than that! I had Kurt take a photo of us on his birthday & then I handed the phone back to him telling him the photo looked weird (after I switched the image to the illustration I had done earlier that he knew nothing about) I thought it was pretty funny!
