MOMI MOMI!

A nice song to get y’all started here, courtesy of Japan, producing 78% of the world’s weird shit since 1952.

(笑)  I love Japan so much. ^_^

Anyways, moving on.

I’m over a month late, but I’m still amazed by TCM’s Summer Under the Stars posters for this year. These posters are some of the best graphic work I’ve ever seen. Even the ones that I don’t really care for — Beat the Devil, The Conversation, and The Magnificent Seven, methinks — are well done. I know I cannot make anything like them. Personal picks below the cut.

Over 9000, I love you so.

her power level is OVER 9000!!!!!

“Over 9000 people have lost power so far…” [Due to tropical storm Claudette]

Is it just a coincidence that my nickname for Claudette Colbert is Over 9000? XD Since she is that amazing, you know.

(But  I know hurricanes and tropical storms can be serious, so I hope the hurricane season isn’t too destructive this year.)

Happy Monty Monday, everyone.

The only things that inspired me for this was warm colors, the “dissolve” blend mode, and of course, Lauren Bacall.

Don’t turn around…

Oh. Why hello there, sudden activity!

From now on when I post something, I’ll try to take a minute and do a bit of commentary on the work…what insipred me, things that I did differently, etc.

So for today’s piece, I used a black-and-white Vogue scan featuring Audrey Hepburn, likely from 195-something. I challenged myself in this one, trying to keep it entirely black-and-white yet still make the picture eye-catching. I wound up using mostly brushes. While she looks angry in the scan, Audrey keeps her elegance…so that’s another thing I tried to do: give the picture dark emotions, but keep it classy.
