This little haiku painting that almost wasn’t. I hated it when I started it a few months ago, but came across it and thought, maybe it just needs to be finished. I think it’s kinda cute now and shall gift it to my good friend and hair stylist as a thank you. 🙂
I did a guest comic for the clever little comic called Unconscious Ink by Joenis Norac. Joenis tends to do little random ‘inklings’ which are often a play the title. I like playing with words and I dig Joenis’s style so when he asked me to do a guest comic, I had something come to mind immediately. Two haiku comics for the price of one this week and all you have to do is click here.
Okay, I have something so incredibly worthy to recommend to you. I’m not just recommending, I’m begging you to rent this film. Maybe everyone’s seen it and I was just in a hole somewhere when it was released in 2005? It’s possible. You know how you saw Pan’s Labrynth and were just floored and craved more of those surreal scenes? Well practically this entire film is that way.
The film is Mirrormask with the screenplay written by the amazingly storyteller Neil Gaiman and the astounding visual artist David McKean. If you haven’t seen this film, I promise you a visual art explosion, wonderful storycrafting and a killer soundtrack to boot. If you hunger for a fairytale feel that isn’t all hokey and disneyified, you’ll love this. It’s totally bizarre and wonderful and in my opinion, safe for the kiddies as well. Dark and surreal, but not violent or sexual. Get it! I rented it from Netflix and can’t bear to send it back. I just like keeping it near me. I watched it with Jim who flipped and is super inspired by the music and then my mom and I’m ready to re-watch it already. I’m going to have to buy it.
Here’s a kick ass photo montage that includes images from my 3 favorite scenes –
That’s all for now. I’ve just finished one painting for the Muse Show at ArtPool on Feb 13th but I want to see about getting another one done and I have hardly begun.
Remember to order your Valentine’s / Anti Valentine’s Day Cards soon. Thanks to everyone that’s ordered so far. 😀
See you next week!
