Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!!! ☘🍀
I hope your day is merry and green. 💚 Today I bring you a festive outfit and some artwork I finished very late last night!
As you can see, I successfully made everything green today. 😉 It’s a lovely Sunday to be outdoors and enjoy some coffee and a macaron for lunch. 💚☘
So, I had the most electric jolt of creativity last night. Was it my strawberry banana bee pollen smoothie and bowl of fruit I had for dinner at Lassen’s?! Not sure. I came home around eight p.m., pulled out my sketchbook, put on The Beginning is the End is the Beginning live by the Smashing Pumpkins, and away into the creative stratosphere I went.
[You guys are probably tired of me referencing this concert yet again!! What can I say though, if I find something that inspires me, my head and heart can’t help going back].
The aesthetic they chose for this song at their concert appeals to me for a lot of reasons; the main two are 1) the nod to the 1920’s/1930’s showgirl and 2) the song itself paired with the visuals together is beautifully creepy and unsettling. The girls go from camera ready smiles to death glares looking right at you, interchangeably throughout.
It was one of my favorites from their setlist, and so I came up with my own artwork inspired by it (I finished this around 1 a.m. last night!!)
I titled it Life is a Film and We’re the Stars. 🌟
Because life in a way, is just like a film. The highlights and memories we recall are the film reels we replay in our mind. If we recall dark moments, we can choose to replace them with a positive attitude, which are the gleaming, camera-ready smiles that somehow become surreal, the longer you stare at them.
And there are two of them, because life is a constant duality. Positive and negative. Light and dark. Smiles and death glares. Beginning and end.
I’m really, really happy with how this turned out!!!
‘Til next time! 😀
