One of the backgrounds I animated for “Knuffle Bunny: A Cautionary Musical!”.
Those in the New Orleans area should check it out and bring your kiddos! It’s going to be super cute. I’ll post more work over the next couple of days.
Progress shot of a big pink fire truck I’m working on!
Working like a mad woman these past few weeks.
Here is the ROYGBV (sorry indigo!) of victoriaying's #7daysofcolor.
Last week was kind of a bummer, so painting these little dudes every day helped cheer me up. I hope they make you happy, too!
Louis Cranach the Elder's paintings are some of my personal favorites from the northern renaissance. (This I think is my most favorite, it’s hard to pick!) He had a lot of reoccurring themes in his body of work; one of them being Judith and Salome portraits with severed heads. Judith scenes are some of my favorites, but I chose his painting of “Salome with the Head of St. John the Baptist. I just love her expression paired with the gore of the severed head!
A few months ago I drew a lot of these girls with their heads and other snacks on the same platter. So here I drew some Cheetos puffs.
For July’s QuickTalk, each member made an influence map showing aspects of art history that affect their work. We’ll be posting each member’s map over the next few days, so keep watching!
This was a tough one for me! It was hard to keep my images to a low number and it was tricky to figure out what specifically influenced my art.
My mom (being a 60s kid) is a huge pop art and new realism fan. When I chose images from the fine art realm I mostly stuck to those movements because her taste definitely rubbed off on me and my work. I tried to pick pieces that say a lot about my use of humor, stylization in characters, color, and use of collage with shapes.

Hey y’all! This month *im gonna get my shit together*
I am also getting back from Portland, OR! And I’m still on that post-conference inspiration high (maybe it’ll last until ICON9?! … Or the rest of my life?!?!) You can see my travel sketchbook from that trip here if you wanna: http://issuu.com/floatingheads/docs/pdx_travel_journal/1
Aside from QDC and personal never ending projects I’m doing poster and set design for a local theater. They’re doing the play version of Mo Willem’s “Knuffle Bunny”!
