Finished some storyboard revisions this week, and I haven’t had much of a chance to post until now. This is a drawing for a small painting I’m going to do.
I’ve been reading boy and dog stories lately, Henry Huggins, Henry and Ribsy, by Beverly Cleary, and Ginger Pye by Eleanor Estes. I like the innocence of the Youth Fiction of the 50s and 60s. I also like that the stories are super interesting and that the kids are responsible and outward focused. Don’t get me wrong, I like the glorification of pagan-angsty-selfish-outcast-teenagers as much as the next guy, provided the next guy doesn’t like them at all. Anyway, that’s neither here nor there. I wanted this composition to be sort of poster-like, so I based it off the telescoping circle thing found in art nouveau jewelry.
Not too subtle I know. The red circles are completely unnecessary because it’s so obvious.
I hope to paint it up in the next week or so. Keep you posted.
