don’t you just love Billy Joel? Ok.. NUFF of the small talk… I couldn’t hold it in any longer… JUST COULDN’T
It’s been a LONG time since BELLA was born.. and Bella had these relatives that we knew NOTHING about?!?! They just happened to find us about 2 months ago and we have been “tweaking” them ever since ( I wish I could be TWEAKED.. just a little eraser here… a little marker there… more eraser… you get the picture..LOL)..
See the problem I have is that I can’t really draw. I have all these ideas in my head that my artists can get out for me on paper… they are my “hands” shall we say.. now don’t get me wrong.. my artists have minds of their own and they come up with the MOST amazing ideas without MOI.. but when I have a thought and I need to get it out, I know which artist to contact and they so KNOW me.. they UNDERSTAND me.. it’s so strange!
So the vision I first started out with which has been put on hold for a little while was the forties romantic sketchy blurry supermodel… mystical… eerie… and beeYootiful! But she couldn’t “come out” of our heads and hands at that time and plus it was a little too fancy shmancy for da bella. BUt she is coming.. when da bella feels SHMANCIER.
So then, I went to the opposite end of the spectrum… LOL.. of course.. why can’t I be GREY sometimes? Why is it always black or white? hmph
So my next vision was kind of a model.. a little awkward (LOL) to make her real… very pretty.. and kind of yuppyish.. MODERN… CONTEMPORARY.. and FUN. I also made these stamps LARGER as a statement.
So here is a sneak peek of our new UPTOWN GIRLS series.. I FORCED-ED Paula to colour her in late last night cuz it would be a MIRACLE that I plan something ahead of time.. and she willingly agreed to do this for me… so here she is..
I hope you lovey her…
cuz I do…
I really DO…
I really really DO…
And she has 4 more friends being released 🙂
K. Meet UPTOWN GIRL CLAUDIA and her CANDY.. cuz every uptown girl needs a sweet no?
You won’t believe who drew these… LULU’s artist Chrystal! How versatile and amazing is she? I am SO proud of these images I have to say.. she depicted the exact look I wanted.. She’s an uptown girl with a human side… Fashionable yet awkward, Confident yet a little pigeon-toed, and well, she just wants to be your friend and hang out. I think she art journals too! LOL.. and makes cards of course.. VERY well rounded, our UPTOWN GIRL is.
Our Release is going to be on Monday (but check back cuz I may not be able to wait..LOL).. and I would love to hear from you.. so If you like CLAUDIA… leave a comment here and I will be sure to send you one 🙂
