I finally finished the painting the chibi Godzilla 6-pack!
|Godzilla. The MAN. Who da man? You da man.|
After finishing that project, I moved onto this beauty. This little guy is a variation of an O'Bot I painted nearly a year ago. I'd say it came out nicely. Here's your custom toy tip of the day: If you want to stick with a base color (in this case, pink) but still have a variety of colors, alter its shade by adding small amounts of black or white. That's how I did the tree bark (black plus brown), and that's how I did the flowers (pink plus white).
It just occurred to me that this Android piece doesn't have a title. Ha, I consider myself a somewhat knowledgeable person...and yet I frequently find myself hung up on whether I should name all of my pieces. Lol, "Custom Cherry Blossom Android" is so cut and dry. But I'm definitely not the type of person to give a name like "Cherry Blossom Tree on Droid, Spring."
Early on, when I was conscientious about my style, color theory, and ideas, Benny Kline over at Tenacious Toys told me that my art is awesome and I shouldn't be ashamed of it. Because it is a projection, a personification, and translation of who I am, and if anyone should ever try to convince me that it wasn't art, they could go to hell. Those were really meaningful words, and even though I do stick to what I like and what I'm comfortable creating, I am less fearful to try new things as a result of Benny's words. Thanks, Benny!
Which brings us to an unconventional picture: toilet seat cover art.
1's & 2's: A Toilet Seat Art Show! SubUrban Vinyl is having their toilet seat art show this Friday 3/28/14 from 6-9 PM. Since toilet seat painting isn't my forte, I entitled this creepy piece "Branching Out" because...I'm branching out. Self explanatory. :P
Funny thing about this piece is that it was originally going to be a cherry blossom tree. Since it's officially spring, I figure I could do a few pieces using the same theme. But after I finished doing just the branches, I enjoyed the mood of the piece. (I mean -- you can only brighten the mood of a toilet seat so much.) Adding even one flower or one bud changes the mood completely, and I wasn't prepared to undo everything I had worked on for so many hours. That one splash of color will be the focus of the piece and will promote feelings of happiness and hope. No one should ever look at a toilet seat and feel hope. ^.^
I gave you secrets and tips, so you don't get a reminder. Oh, fine. I cave. Here's your damn reminder: Even though you're confident that the anti-diarrhea pills were fully effective, bring an extra pair of underwear just in case.
Oh, jokes. Haha, I crack me up. Tip your waiter, folks. I'm here virtually every week. And I'm also on Instagram with frequent updates (except in this case where I haven't done anything in almost three days! Ooooo slacker.). Most, if not all, pictures here were originally posted on Instagram. I know, I know. I'm a lazy, corner-cutting, fraud. Whatevs, I'm going to bed.
SoKo Cat! OUT!
