ABOUT THE ART
Hop 'til you Drop.
So, this is colour pencil, watercolour/watercolor (I suppose spelling depends on where you are in the world... Down Under we use a 'u'!), ink, lead & acrylic paint markers on handmade Indian paper ! I couldn't sleep last night on account of the ridiculous heat (thanks Melbourne) so I took a day off work. I feel like I have cotton wool in my head, but I was able to finish this baby off whilst watching Buffy (my life revolves around painting on handmade Indian paper and watching Buffy, by the way).
Melbourne is completely riddled with the most amazing graffiti & paste-up lanes, we have a number of rad ass Artists that leave the most amazing work around the streets, on our trains and on many a residential fence- it makes the city so rich. What better to compliment graffiti than a green haired chick with skate board in hand? I'll tell you what's better, a green haired lady babe in cutoffs, a crop top, yellow stocking socks with skate board in hand COVERED IN GOLDFISH! ✌
Anyway, I have a couple new pieces I'm working on, utilizing a lot of glitter, that I'm going to go start now, so... Imagine if you were a tiny Grasshopper, and all the shoots of grass were giant and green and lush. Like a never ending forest... What a life! ❀ ‿ ❀
Oh, and if I die of glitter-lung tonight, have a happy 'Straya day!
