I highly encourage you to download and print out these cards & prints because there are so much details that got lost if you just view in on the screen. Enjoy!
I usually post sketches first, but this one got completed before I could get them sketches up! Here’s is a “behind the scenes” moment for you.
This may be one of the funniest images I’ve ever made and I had so much fun!
In this dream, I was frolicking, naked, in a big and beautiful British garden where there were trees, flowers, grass and butterflies. The air was warm and the wind felt gentle and soothing against my skin. I ran around and thought, I’m in London! I gotta call Richard (who is a designer friend), I think he’s still in London! Then I encountered the biggest rabbit I’ve ever seen. It felt like he was Peter Rabbit. I was so excited I rushed forward to give him a giant hug. He was so big he didn’t move at all despite my momentum. I hugged him even more tightly and try to shake him. Then I started to climb up his giant body.
That’s about how much I can remember after I woke up. The most memorable thing was the sense of a warm and beautiful British garden.
I’ve been trying to create looks from my oddball wardrobe. Sometimes it just takes a bit of love and heart to create something special from all your old clothes. I love posting these somewhat narcissistic images on lookbook.nu because there are tons of lovely narcissistic people posting their lovely outfits, oh my :)
Yes I gave birth to this finally.
See Large Image and listen to the music at the same time.
This is the first time that I made something with this much details, effect and shading, kind of like a video game matt painting. I usually do very flat and saturated images and don’t really like that style, but for this picture to come to life, like in my dream,Â lighting, texture and effects were needed.
Psychologically I never left my school years in Taiwan. 90% of my dreams I’m in one of the three: elementary school, junior high or senior high, and hang out with friends who I got to know from then. Sometimes current people show up, but very rarely and/or in the backgrounds.
The girl in the picture is my elementary school best friend. In this dream, we were hanging out in an old church. It ‘s not any church but church of the god of the ocean. It was dark in the church, with faint streams of light coming through the stained glass windows. She was dancing giddily with the ocean god Neptune dressed as Transformer. She was so small, he was so huge and not moving very much. She was having so much fun and totally absorbed with herself. There’s a background music playing, it is Chopin’s Nocturne Op 9 No 2 in E. Flat Major. It was near the end of the song, she was spinning and asking me to take a picture of her and the Neptune Transformer. I was fumbling with the camera and because it was dark in the church, all the pictures I took were blurry. She said, come on, Bonny, take a picture, the song is almost over!
In case you’d like this, it is available! Oh my, where else would you find this sh*#?
The picture of the girl’s skin on the shirt looks faded in the photo but in real life it’s pretty visible, just subtle. In this picture I’m wearing Large women’s fitted. I usually wear small, but I think I’m going to cut this up and turn it into a outer hangy thing for a dance outfit. Will post pic.
I made a guy one too in case any guy would like it. Get it here.
Oh my, it’s been weeks since I started working on this piece. I wanted this piece to be super detail oriented like I have forever to work on it. Indeed it took forever ;p
Here are some sketches. Stay tuned this weekend. It is going to look great.
