You Have No Power Over Me

Susanita’s Little Gallery’s 9th art exhibit starts soon. The gallery wanted a David Bowie themed piece with David Bowie somehow included in the work.

Growing up in the 80′s, I have this deep sense of pride. My childhood is filled with some of the greatest cult classic movies of all time. “Labyrinth” is one of them. I enjoyed watching all the behind-the-scenes of the movie on YouTube recently. There is no one like Jim Henson and I wish I could have been part of his creative team.

Below is a time-lapse video of “You Have No Power Over Me.”

Charlie Chan - Portrait

Pencil on Paper

In June my dad emailed me a picture of a few of his favorite detective movie characters and asked me to draw them. I was in the middle of a lot of different projects so I told him I couldn't do it right now, but I would be happy to at a later time. I think Christmas is a good time, so I'll be posting some portraits. This is Warner Oland as Charlie Chan.
Let me just say that I am not a professional portrait artist. After the Bert (Dick Van Dyke) research portrait I posted months back I realized that most people, on the outside of fine art and illustration work, have a specific idea of what makes an artist and what they define as art. A lot of people say "I don't get it," including my loving husband, about my paper sculptures. I'm used to it and I love to hear the wisdom of other creative professionals that have family and friends that "don't get it" either.

Anniversary Piece

Blog Article: Palm Trees & Pixie Dust

I waited to post until the couple received the artwork. It’s still a few days away from their anniversary and it arrived safely.

The couple was married at Walt Disney World. They specifically requested the monorail be predominate; castle, squirrels, their pet rabbit and some other details, to be included. I added the Florida Gator mascot. They are both Florida Gators and the groom wore an orange and blue striped shirt. The bride has a pie-eyed Minnie tattoo and the Groom gave the bride a card, on their wedding day, with the spaghetti scene of Lady and the Tramp.

The artwork fits into a custom made shadow box frame. 

Happy First Anniversary, Stephanie & David! It was a pleasure working with you.

Just One Bite

                                                                  " Just One Bite-Creepy"

Happy Halloween! Available for purchase. $1200.
This was inspired by the Disney Store wall artwork. I needed to make this idea as a prelude to a future Lord of the Rings piece.

Endor Treetop

Susanita's Little Gallery – Kids Adventure exhibit piece. The 1980′s toy Ewok village was an inspiration for this piece. I started making this months ago and I recently received the gameinformer magazine October issue and on page 37 the Lego Star Wars Ewok Village is featured. It’s 2013 and that toy is still a big seller!

John Deere Tractor

                                                  Time-lapse Video - John Deere Tractor
My computer crashed and I had to make this tractor for a client by using just a picture she had sent me. This was a challenge, but I like the way it turned out. I didn’t use any computer programs or print outs. I used a ruler a lot and tried to keep the pieces symmetrical.
