As a kid, I had to share a room with my sister, until I was almost 15 (not as lucky as some of you to have my own space but maybe luckier than some who shared with more siblings). Now, it is amazing how we come from the same home and are completely different not just in mannerisms, attitude, clothing but also music. The first album I bought was by "Tears for Fears"... "Songs from the Big Chair" hers?.... "Madonna"... you guessed it... "Like a Virgin". Seriously, for me, it was torture to have to listen to her records when she had a turn at the player but, WAYYYYYYYYY.... WAAYYYYY before we split in our likes there was a precious time when we both liked the Beatles and the Monkees. We would laugh and giggle while we adjusted the speeds on one Monkees song in particular, "I'm gonna buy me a dog". I am really not sure why we liked it so much, maybe because they were so silly while singing it (in case you need a refresher https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?p=the+monkees+gonna+buy+me+a+dog&ei=UTF-8&hspart=mozilla&hsimp=yhs-001) No matter the reason it is one of the few moments when my sister and I were not trying to kill one another lol. In tribute to the dog song, I thought, I am gonna MAKE me a dog.... and so here we go......
I do not normally like to have someone give me a subject to create art from. I, in general, like to just put my pencil to paper and see who or what emerges. Today, I had someone request that I do Wednesday Addams in my style for a trade. At first, I thought nahhhh, maybe I will just shy away but, I decided to do it anyway and I am happy with the results... enough so that I may make a second for myself. I kinda think she should have freckles... not sure why lol. If I do manage to make another later I will share it. Happy Creating!
