Inappropriate Golden Book Auction Art
I painted these for an art auction coming up at work. I've been drawing on the computer a lot recently, like robots do, so I went actual media for these, like cavemen do. I broke out my dried-up Bob Ross paints, and mixed them with the tears from a litter of orphaned kittens, (it makes the colors very vibrant) and applied the tear-paint with my brushes made of angelhair (not the pasta, actual angel hair). But that painting didn't turn out right, so I used gouache instead.
My brilliant wife had the idea to incorporate the infamous design of the Golden Book spine onto the mat of the pieces. Here's some close-ups of the mats.
