I finally completed my illustrated version of the twelve days of Christmas! The project got a bit out of hand with all the detail work….but at least I was able to get it finished before Christmas! Click on main image to get a close up look at the illustration. Have a very happy holiday!!
Here are some close-ups…
Sunday night was the Tori Amos American Doll Posse concert. It was AMAZING!!!!!!!! Tori was SPECTACULAR, as usual!
The show was at the new Nokia theater downtown. For the tour she has been opening as different ADP personalities….I was so curious as to who she would be Sunday….turned out to be Isabel, Pip, and of course Tori. She opened with “Yo George” and it was amazing from there forward. Her energy was overwhelming…and it changed each time she transformed into different characters….when she came out as Pip in black spandex the entire mood of the show shifted away from the mellow, cool, and politically-charged persona of Isabel, to Pip’s angry, aggressive, and daring rocker-girl persona.
Our seats were in the front and dead center, so that was fantastic! She actually played a lot of older music which was incredible because the last couple tours I’ve been to haven’t done too much of that. Her personality was also completely different–last time for the Beekeeper tour she was chatty, glamorous and feminine…this time she was strong, rockin’ out and intellectual. She just played solid sets…for 2.5 hours! It was absolutely incredible, not that I expect anything less from Tori Amos. I didn’t bring my camera, but I was able to grab some cell phone pictures off ToriAmos.com from the concert.
I was recently contacted by Kartika Review to be a featured artist for
their magazine’s inaugural December issue. They’ve included six of my
paintings, my artist statement and my artist’s biography in their winter
issue! Check it out by visiting their website: kartikareview.com.
