The week is winding down and while the final Alice in Wonderland piece is not done yet (I will list it this weekend, it's looking good so far), I still wanted to share some random stuff with you all.
First of all, I found the coolest artist/illustrator and I wanted to share her work with you. Ruth Ishbel Munro is her name and drawing creepy, unsettling and beautiful art is her game. Here are just a couple of pieces entitled Plunger and Carny (you know I have a weakness for the carnival stuff folks), I'm coveting these pieces and will probably get at least one.
And I've seen a lot of blogs lately that have pictured peoples' work spaces and I love when they do this because it gives me ideas and inspiration. So I've decided to post a couple pics of some of the art that I have in my studio that inspires me and makes me laugh. The first is a pic of a watercolor I did of the Scribner pulp cover for Isaac Asimov's I, Robot a couple of years ago. These were fun and I may get back into pulp cover paintings in the future. The rest is self-explanatory except the old airbrush gun that I have on the wall. I don't do airbrush, but I looooved the graphics on this piece and the bottle has a little man with a painter's hat on... cute.
And to leave you all with a little bit of the usual life humor/tragedy. Did you read about the grandma who tried to break up a sword fight between 2 people (sword fight?!) and ended up I guess getting stabbed and died? Again, a sword fight? What is this, the 1600s? Were they dueling? So sad and unfortunate. That's why you don't sword fight folks, tip for the future.
Until next time: unpleasant dreams.
