I was asked to create some new artwork to be released at the event, and while I had quite a few initial ideas, top priority went to this young lady. Have I mentioned that I'm a fan? No? Huh. Well, I am. It may be to the point of unhealthy obsession, but I try to channel that energy in the most productive ways possible. Thus, very large paper-cut artworks are born.
This piece is titled What's a Fire?, and stands at about 36 x 16 inches, making it one of the larges pieces I have worked on in some time. I fear that I may sound like a broken record for those of you who have been around for a while, but Part of Your World was my introduction to pure magic, and remains the standard that I compare all movie moments to. I could go on and on about why it is just perfection, but the bottom line is that it makes me feel. And I love that.
The original piece will make its debut on Saturday at 11am, and I believe that prints and possibly a few other items featuring the artwork will be produced through the gallery as well. I'm sure that the six of us will be taking pictures the day of, so stay tuned on instagram and twitter (and who knows, maybe even Periscope?) for real-time updates.
And as you may be able to tell from the title of this post, this is just Part 1 of what I have in store for Wonderground. I'm really excited about Part 2 , and am hoping to share with you tomorrow:)
Have a lovely evening everyone!
