preparing for the festival

done in Photoshop CS5

Sometimes I hear people complaining about "cute" and "girly" artwork not having any merit. I don't think doing this is any easier than anything else I've done. This painting alone took 8-9 hours to do straight. Just make stuff that makes you happy! I personally like to laugh (you know, surprisingly some people don't!), and I like my heart to feel warm, so I'm gonna make cute things that make me happy, tough nuts. Students, especially in the BFA, tend to enjoy ripping other peoples' styles apart just to make themselves feel better, and that's really unfortunate. If you have your own style and you put love and effort into what you make, it's beautiful <3
