The news that Star and Al are divorcing comes as a surprise to..............? Hmmmmmmmm. I am choosing to remember the good times. Here's a portion of a Star and Al illustration I did back in March 2007........
In honor of Star Jones new show on Court TV, I decided to portray her as Themis the Goddess of Justice and Law. Themis is usually depicted holding a scale in one hand and a sword in the other. With a little research I discovered that in the 16th century artists began showing the Goddess blindfolded to convey that justice is not influenced. I decided to leave the blindfold off my drawing as I imagine anyone who happens upon Star's show will need to put one on themselves. Perhaps a set of ear plugs would also help. I wonder if Themis ever married a gay guy?
I have done advertising work for years and years, including: story boards, comps, and illustrations. I will post some of those soon.
For my latest I decided to have a storyboard look and approach to my Dancing with Star. I have seen some.... um....... super sexy photos of Star and her man lover AL out tearing up the town. After I laughed and laughed, I cried a little and then picked up my pen and began sketching. It's how a process things I don't understand. I created what I imagine a night out dancing for the dynamic duo could be like.
This is done with ink on paper and photoshop text.
It is taking everything in my power to not draw Britney Spears in a straight jacket right now. I am exercising a little restraint here.
This morning while flipping thru radio stations I heard some dj reading a quote from Gwen Stefani about Britney. I am completely paraphrasing what she said, but it went something like this, "She (Brit) and I (Gwen) lived near each other. I just want to scoop her up and give her a big kiss. And she looks good with her hair shaved off." That's reason #10,000 that I love Gwen. She look crazy lemons and made nonalcoholic lemonade.
So I thought perhaps if more celebs stepped up and showed their support maybe it would help Brit Brit during this difficult time. And I think one of the best ways a fellow celebrity could show their support right now would be to shave their heads. Leading the list could be the always compassionate Star Jones. More celebs to follow....................................
