Happy Birthday to ME!

My birthday was Saturday and it was magical. I had a party for myself and did a fun photoshoot. I think a lot of people get down about birthdays because they're expecting other people to be part of it or make time for them. Well, after I tried to get a bunch of people together and they were full of excuses, I took matters into my own hands and I have not been let down once! Birthdays are the best because I make them the best. For this birthday, I wanted to make something that reflected my state of mind. There's a picture of Lilo and Stitch eating ice cream, but I wanted them to be eating pizza on a beach and so, here we are!

I Wish I Were Big.

One of my favorite movies is the movie Big. I watched it a lot growing up and know a ton of the words. I decided to make the Zoltar machine and this baby took me quite a few hours to do. Check him out and remember: your wish is granted.

Beetlejuice! Beetlejuce! Beetlejuice!

Beetlejuice the Musical at the Wintergarden was the best broadway show I have ever seen. I can't stop thinking about it, singing about it, and wanting to be in it. Its tenure at the Wintergarden has ended, but I hope they open it somewhere else after all of this covid quarantine business ends. It really is a phenomenal show. So, I did a color study from it; just trying to block in shapes. It's Beetlejuice riding the sandworm.

Orville Peck.

Annie Forrest is a photographer that took a bunch of pictures of Orville Peck and released a book (that I don't have) called Giddyup and this is one fo those photos. I like the juxtaposition of this masked crooner, man of mystery against the backdrop of an indoor pool. So, I illustrated it.

Quarantine Mask.

Life has become weird since quarantining ourselves. My friend said something about this particular scene from The Jetsons; this is what it's like to roll out of bed for a zoom meeting and he's right. I wanted to draw it and make Jane look EXTRA tired because honestly, that's all I feel anymore. Rolling with the punches, though, and trying to stay safe. I hope everyone else is, too, and that you find this as relatable as I do/did.

MY 1,000TH POST!

WHAT A MOMENTOUS OCCASION: this is my 1,000 blog post!! Hard to believe I started this thing back in 2008. There were a lot of times in my life I was consistent with it and others where I strayed, but I think that this is important. It's an avenue into my life (especially my past) and I enjoy seeing the growth. So, to mark this celebratory experience, I whipped up a colorful drawing of Rodney from Animal Crossing New Horizons. He's my friend, Scott's, neighbor.

Judy Jetson.

Anyone remember The Jetsons? I used to watch it growing up. I feel like a lot of movies from the 60's and 70's played as reruns in the 90's. I loved the whole family, but Judy was just the coolest. There's one episode that I'll never forget and it's the episode where she enters a contest to try to win the chance to meet/write a song for Jet Screamer. Her song isn't good (Jettttt Screamer, Screamer, Screamer, Screamer, Screamer. Is aaaaaa dreamer, dreamer, dreamer, dreamer, dreamer; maybe there are a few too many screamers and dreamers in there, but you get the idea), but Elroy is working on a secret language at the time and that gets shipped instead of Judy's song and Jet Screamer loves it and picks her (aka Elroy's). EEP! OP! ORK! AH-AH! And that means I love you! Come flyyyyy with me! Up highhhhhh with me! It's so good. I can still hear it. Anyway, here's a little Judy Jetson doodle.

Officer Big Mac.

Mayor McCheese brought back images of a hamburger cop and so I had to do some research and finally figured out it was Officer Big Mac! I remember there being a metal cage version of his head in the McDonald's outside play area at this one specific McDonald's in Woodhaven. You would climb into his neck (like a tunnel) and then his head had cage bars around it (which was a hamburger) and his police hat was on top. It was a jail. It was great. Anyway, here's Officer Big Mac. I hope you enjoy him as much as I enjoyed making him!

Dolly Parton.

Dolly Parton is ONE IN A ZILLION. She's the true NATIONAL TREASURE and this world is a better place because of her. I was working on some techniques and decided to do this young Dolly with some bright colors a la Andy Warhol and mostly I am just excited because tonight, at 8 pm, there is a DOLLY PARTON BIOGRAPHY ON A&E and that's the real gift on this day. I miss going to Dollywood.

Mayor McCheese.

I have been in a real art funk lately, but my inner voice said... "draw Mayor McCheese..." and I didn't even question it. THERE WAS NO HESITATION, WE MUST DRAW MAYOR MCCHEESE! So, I did and I am OBSESSED WITH HIM/IT. Why is he so cool? Cause he's a cheeseburger mayor, that's why.

Lately I've Been Feeling So COOL!

The Jonas Brothers recently celebrated the year anniversary of their single, Cool, coming out. Each of the brothers posted a photo from behind the scenes for the video and Kevin posted this awesome, brightly colored picture. Seeing how we are all self quarantining due to the coronavirus, I am living vicariously through this drawing because Kevin looks like he's on vacation and I wish I was.
