I started drawing Jesse and Chi Chi when I was sitting at my booth at Odd Mall at the beginning of June and I have finally finished putting her on a background and adding color.
She was created on a 11 by 14 wood canvas and she has some fun old papers that I have stashed in my studio. Some of the old papers are from my great Aunt. She loved to write recipes on all kinds of papers and what not.
I used acrylics and some stamps and stickers for her background. She is colored in with water color crayons, acrylics and pencils. I used some twinkling H20's on her eyes. Chi Chi was painted with acrylics and water color pencils.
I love how she turned out and while she isn't too creepy, Chi Chi is! I was inspired by an artist that I met at the show Jessica Wilkinson. She makes the most adorable monster pottery!
Prints of Jesse will be for sale along with other Creepy Cuties in my Etsy shop as well as at Redmond Arts Festival August 15th through 17th at Redmond Town Center. Vala will have an art installation at their new arts center and I was one of the artist picked to have a piece represented in the installation. I'm very excited to be a part of this installation.
I finished up one more piece today called, " Sisters". I have been missing my lil sis and so I created this piece thinking of her.
It was a fun productive day in the studio I loved it! Haven't had one of these days in a while.
Hope to be able to spend some more longs days creating again soon!
