PART TWO, WOO! So compared to the start of Part One I'm doing pretty great here, haha. This artwork symbolizes the stereotypes men are given and that labels are a total bore. Men are stereotyped as strong and big. As people who "have" to wear a short haircut and a pair of super tough looking pants. Well I say, who needs stereotypes?! Guys can look pretty damn good in a skirt or a dress if they style themselves right, and I say if you can work it, then don't be afraid to do so. I mean look at Jayden Smith! He looks quite attractive in a skirt. Oh and not to forget the god himself, Bowie! Don't settle into being the stereotype you feel as though you should be depending on your gender or sexuality. You know what? Don't even label yourself with a gender or a sexual orientation. Who needs labels? Who needs the stress of the process to discover what gender they're attracted to, or what gender they feel most comfortable being, just so they can label themselves? Just be you, just live on being whatever you want to be. Kiss what ever gender you want to kiss (with consent of course, aha), be whatever gender you want to be, and wear a god damn skirt no matter who you are. Labels are boring and unnecessary. As long as you're a happy and well dressed human being that is all that matters, heh. Well that's my opinion anyways :3
ANYWAYS, moving on from my little rant and onto my Jesus...BOWIE! You really didn't think I would go through 20 artworks and not have at least one being Bowie, did you? Haha, well here's Ashes to Ashes Bowie. I was going to do this artwork in charcoal so it could connect to the title in a way. But if you've ever worked with charcoal you would know they're messy as all hell! So I just stuck to lead pencil, which turned out quite good if I don't say so myself, aha ha ha.
If you've been reading my blog for a while you would probably know what I am quite the big fan of Weetzie Bat books. I even named one of my cats after the slinkster-cool character (I like to call her Weetzie Cat, haha. I would love to be a cat with a pun as a name, wouldn't you?). If you knew this you might also know that one of my favourite editorials of all time is PaperMag's take on Francesca Lia Block's wonderful imagination. I fell in love with every single photograph and couldn't resist painting this one of the rad Annakim Violette, in a Pop Art sort of style to be precise. I have to say this is one of my favourite paintings in my folio :3
Jenny Mustard! Oh what a darling, she's so gorgeous and I've been a sucker for her style for quite some time. Actually, this isn't the first time I've drawn her. Remember??? Hehe. Anyways, I've been falling in awe with this photograph over and over again and couldn't resist drawing her again. I LOVE how Jenny wears this harness really loose over her ensemble. It's moments like these where I take notes on how to wear things differently, haha. Jenny you're a genius <3
Casper Blaise! Here's another lady I've drawn more than once! These ladies are just too stylish, they're unstoppable! Haha, so this is another favourite of mine, and I don't actually think photograph's do it justice aha. Ah well. So this is Casper Blaise, someone I admire the style of everyday. Her constant change in hairdo's and outfits make me squeal in awe. Especially when I saw this Spongebob shirt, AH!
This artwork here is just a little something I whipped up due to running out of time haha, oopsies! Creepers are an essential in any human's wardrobe. Actually, I take that back, Doc Martens are an essential, like a DEFINITE essential! But yeah, Creepers are pretty cool too :3 They've got a pretty cool aesthetic about them, the same with Polaroids. So I decided to combine the two, for an overpowering aesthetic realness, haha.
Willow Smith is someone I've been following for quite some time, a reason being because of her rad style. Recently Willow was in a shoot for i-D Magazine and I gasped at every single photograph for the reason being that the styling was wonderful. A painting of Willow from this photo shoot was definitely a must.
Now people, this here is what I like to call...a Sculptie. Not a selfie, not a sculpture, but a sculpture selfie, which doubles as a finger puppet. Yes yes you can all bow down to me as I am officially a genius. Haha, so yeah I made a self portrait in the style of a sculpture, pretty cool right? The Sculptie is of me in my fluffy, green, grass dress, and you can't see in the selfie but I'm wearing a pretty rad necklace my pretty rad Auntie sent me :3 I first sculpted the Sculptie out of wire and paper mache and continued to Edie-fy it soon afterwards, hehe. Pretty happy with it, yay!
My last two artworks are my final artworks which were hung up in this cute little exhibition at school. I ended up winning an award for my art-y efforts and received a canteen voucher which I spent on THE MOST DELICIOUS NUTELLA DONUT UGH. So yeah, I'm indeed quite proud of myself for that, hehe. Oh, and a teacher or two ended up wanting to buy my artworks off of me! Which was quite exciting but I ran home with them instead, like the greedy bitch I am haha!
So this is Grimes, whom I adore oh-so much. This dress has always been a favourite of mine and thought all the detail would look quite cool painted in watercolours and thrown in a fancy but super cheap frame, ahaha.
The final and fiiiinal artwork is a take on Romance was Born's Mushroom Magic collection, which is yet another painting that could do more justice being seen with your own eyes rather than through a photograph, aha, ah well. The garments, the makeup, and the hair are all equally gorgeous elements of this collection, and therefore results in this being my favourite RWB collection thus far. I wanted to make the collar of this dress stand out a little bit more than the rest of the artwork, so I glued rhinestones and beads to it, later glitterbombing it. Was a pretty great idea, AMIRITE? Hehe, another good idea was the inks that I used to create the wonderful and so very pretty fabric the dress is made from. Ugh, I'm just so in love with Romance was Born, can you tell? ^.^
Well that's everything. I hope to write again very soon as I have sewn together quite a few garments with my very own hands. YES I ACTUALLY SEWED SOMETHING ARE YOU PROUD? HAHA!
