It’s been a while since we’ve had a visit from Gluck. Oddly enough, I have little control over who will show up each week. Occasionally, I can focus my head on a character and try to come up with something for his or her personality but usually the comics come from a doodle or random thought and the applicable character just is. Anyway, despite the lapse in his visits, I’m actually quite fond of Gluck and am glad he surfaced this week.
This weekend my friend Demi (DemiGod Studio) and I did some live body painting at Cafe Hey. Here’s our lovely model Tammi rockin’ her pirate outfit made almost entirely of acrylic paint. Everything you see except the hat, sword and boots is paint.
I met an awesome painter by the name of Adriana Tomassi whose work I really fell in love with. I bought two of her minis which she was letting go for practically nothing. I don’t have photos of those but here’s a couple of paintings which reflect her loose, imaginative style.
I also met part of group that makes up Calavera Comics. Calavera is an indie comic force that does a little bit of everything including cool comic anthologies. It was refreshing to see some comic art at an art show. Here’s a shot of their wall:
It was a fun night. Other than that, I haven’t done too much. I’ve been sick for like 10 days now with some days better than others. Maybe it’s allergies from hell. I don’t know. Oh, wait I did complete this Day of the Dead couple that I’ve been working on little by little for ages now. They are on hold for someone already in case you’re wondering, but more day of the dead art dolls are in progress.
Oh, I also saw Burton’s Alice in Wonderland this weekend. It was what I expected. I’m not super fond of the cgi-ness but I got over myself and just enjoyed it. The costumes were phenomenal. Depp plays 3 different personalities rolled into that Mad Hatter which was cool to watch. Plus, there are these upright frogs in fancy attire that made me squeal with delight. So, all in all I liked it very much. Would I have loved a less Disneyesque, darker Alice? Hell, yes. But, it certainly is imaginative and filled with enough eye candy to make it worth seeing on the big screen.
That’s all for now, haiku away and I’ll see you next week!
