For my mum. Well, to be honest, my entire family including myself are avid fans of his twisted comedy.... So yeah, Craig Ferguson, the scottish american host of the Late Late Show... For my caricature class- had to have lots of symbolism... Still more to come.
Making another mess with acrylic, ink, coloured pencil and other messy things.
So fer class we randomly drew a tarot card and had to illustrate it. Me, with impeccable bad luck, drew the Tower, often thought to be the worst card in the deck. It signifies sudden change, destruction of your foundation, and the necessity to rebuild. I drew it upside down, so that's a good thing. But. ... still... very black and red... tumultuous... Lightning, fire... All that fun stuff.
I'm killing you. In addition to painting you not well, I am drowning you.
Not done yet.
Still gonna keep going.. We had to take a famous painting and then put a famous person into it and lotsa symbolism.
So, I took Millais' "Ophelia" and have Jim Morrison drowning. Since he was found dead in a bathtub. Throw in a peyote blossom, some jack daniels, a lizard, the eiffel tower, screaming butterflies, horse latitudes, girls with beads 'round their necks, and some feathers....
And I still have a lot of work to do. Not sure if i'll finish it in time, especially to the level I want to.
AKA i'm going to be v. unhappy with this no matter what .
