Mystery Science Theater

Would you believe, I had never seen or heard of Mystery Science Theater before? That’s what my husband called this fish board painting I made recently. Something about the black silhouettes, I guess.

Then I looked up Mystery Science Theater on the Interwebs and it was the funniest darn thing I’ve seen in a long time. Pure entertainment. (Mature content, NSFW)

And yes. I see a resemblance.

More stuff…

Here is another simple motif. This one was lots of fun. Why aren’t gel pens more legitimate to artists? Scrapbookers don’t seem to be embarrassed to use them.

Here is the finished drawing of the Hawaiian red ginger plant in the moleskine. This was done with colored pencils in a more traditional style.



P.S. Man! Does this family need a DSLR camera! I swear, that ginger bud is NOT as overworked as it looks in that photo. However, I do think I need to remove the “wax bloom” and apply some fixative at this point. (I just forgot.)
