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…..
This weekend has been all about Black Friday,relaxing and more relaxing!!! I didn’t do much black friday shopping …just some more art supplies to continue the Prince Project daily!!! Does it look a little brighter now that I have some new supplies? I have also been making a ton of ornaments for the holidays,check them out below!!!
Prince has had a long week of activities, I thought he could use a Spa day… 🙂
Today is day Two Hundred and Twenty Nine in the Prince project. I feel linked to the Prince fan base online since I have started doing these illustrations. At this point in the project anytime anything Prince related happens… my twitter blows up, friends and family text me, & people share Prince posts on my Facebook page. I heard all about Prince’s interview in Essence Magazine in May, the two new albums being released, Prince on SNL, and even Princes birthday from you all! Today something new happened!!! I was sitting at work and my phone was pinging away so I looked at my screen…people retweeting my art (and crediting me ding ding ding THANKYOU 🙂 )!!! Usually I just read/hear news about Prince, this time I felt part of the news!!! Apparently there was a rumor today that Prince is playing a secret show in Toronto!!! I still have no idea whether this is merely rumor or not, but I loved being part of the feed! I really feel I have so many fans out there, who just haven’t discovered my art yet. waaah waaah !!! 😦 lol ! I enjoy entertaining people through my art and would love to find my audience! I felt a Toronto Maple leaf would be appropriate for todays posting!!!
