Tap tap tap..... is this thing on? Is anyone out there? Goodness gracious I slipped and fell off the face of the blogosphere for the longest time. If you've been reading my site for any length of time then you know I occasionally take a break here and there but wow did I take a long one this go round. I went out of town for almost three weeks and prior to that I was body painting up a storm--- by the way I removed a lot of my body painting work as I'm saving it all for a bigger posting in the not too distant future. And to be honest, I do love those Real Housewives of wherever but there's only so much I can take. So in the interest in keeping myself interested in blogging, I gotta shake things up a bit. I still will draw those wacky gals and recap them from time to time but I have to mix in some other stuff. What stuff? Well, I'm going to draw and paint pop culture folks who grab my interest and I'm starting with James Franco.
Why Mr Franco? Well, I just saw his movie 127 Hours and was so impressed with his moving performance. I laughed, cringed, and cried which added to the tremendous respect I already had for him. If you're on the fence about this film because of the arm severing scene- don't be. Sure that part wasn't comfortable to watch but it was handled well. He's definitely oscar bound with this one. And also I wanted to draw him because he's awfully easy on the eyes and I'm totally in moustache mode. :)
My illustration of James was created with pencil, ink washes, pen and some photoshopped color. The cast of Glee, Snooki, and many others to follow shortly. Hope you'll all stick around.
