An overly productive week, i.e., ArtWalk piece completed.

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED! *\o/*

So, the piece for the ArtWalk show/competition/thingie was a ridiculously multi-stepped process and all the mixed media.

Seriously, this think is like 5 feet of schizophrenic.  Welcome to my brain, yeah?

So, yeah, can we say Cronenberg?  ‘Cause I totally have those references going on.  And Lovecraft and eldritchian tendencies.  Seriously, body horror, vagina dentata, and the Uncanny are totally my jam.

Ginger Snaps?  Totally one of my favorite movies.

Naked Lunch?  I saw it when I was, like, 11. <–I kid you not; my brother brought it home to watch.  I was home sick with the worst flu ever and watched Rocky Horror Picture Show, Gothic, and Naked Lunch all in the same day.

With a 103 temp.

Somehow, I think this may be to blame for me and my visceral, bodily, grotesque (but in really bright colors!) art thing I’ve got going on.  Don’t y’all?

…it probably also explains the wiggins I get from anything with more than 10 legs.

THANK YOU, YVES CLOQUET, YOU CREEPY BASTARD.

Though, Julian Sands, yeah?

…maybe it’s just a Julian Sands thing.  He was in both Gothic and Naked Lunch, and he kinda looks like Richard O’Brien.  That’s a very interesting coincidence.

But the title is a reference to Galactus, Eater of Worlds.

*dooooooooooooooooooooooooork*

But!  It seemed like a reasonable title, even though there are also references to the Necromongers, the Narada, starfish, and octopodes.

…and maybe a touch of the Shadows from Babylon 5.

So, loads of references=me. *SIGH*

Also, because I’m kinda a freak and evidently an exhibitionist now, I made more of those not-instructional videos while I was working.

*HANDS*

IDEK.  Really, why am I doing this?

Okay.  Yeah.  I’m going to go now.

Remember there’s an opening at the ARTgarage for the First Quarter artists.  *waves*  And, I’m teaching a spinning class on Saturday, so if y’all want to take it, y’all need to sign-up for it super-quick.

Courage.
