Glad to be back at doing the weekly prompts for Animal Alphabets. This round we have been focusing on Monsters from movies or books. So A was Audrey II from the “Little Shop of Horrors”, B is for “Babadook”, C for “Creature from the Black Lagoon”, D for Demogorgon from “Stranger Things”, E for “Edward Scissorhands”, and F for “The Fly”.
When I was a little, I remember watching the “Really Rosie” animation tv special which had stories by Maurice Sendak and songs sung by Carol King. I loved it so much that I sought other books by Maurice Sendak in the library. One of Maurice’s books in particular has always been a favorite of mine, which was “Pierre A Cautionary Tale in Five Chapters and Prologue”. So I chose the moment where Pierre puts himself in the Lion’s mouth to eat him. This was for my agents for November Picture Book Month.
This weeks Colour Collective color was Nougat. I based my illustration off of the Limerick by Edward Lear, “There Was an Old Man with a Beard”.
There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, “It is just as I feared!—
Two Owls and a Hen, four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard!”
Here are the two limited edition prints I did for the Spirit of the Wind 2015 Art Show. The show is hosted by 3tArts (www.3tarts.us), opening is on Aug.8th – Aug.30th at the Rothick art haus in Anaheim, California. So if your in the area, please go take a peek, and buy one of my illustrations!
