Week 25 - The Crone by Andrew Charipar

OK, this is me once again going in a different direction.

This weeks subject over at Illustrious Bits Sketch Blog was Movie Monsters.

I personally think Monsters are suppose to scare you.  I started thinking about Movie Monsters when I was a kid and I was fascinated with the classics.  Dracula, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein (I loved that one) and none of them really scared me.  Even the modern Movie Monsters (Freddy, Jason and so forth) never really scared me either... they just made me laugh.  But the one, the ONE Monster that actually Scarred me... was the Crone from the Disney animated movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

We owned the movie on VHS and whenever her scenes came on the screen, I hide my head under a pillow or left the room... she literally scared the crap out of me.  I even had a Snow White art book and there was a full page, full color picture of her and I memorized the page number and whenever I was looking through the book, I would skip that page, avoiding it EVERYtime.

This was actually a very difficult drawing for me... I had to do my Google searching... in fear.

Not necessarily a Mother's Day drawing just the drawing I finished on Mother's Day, he he he.

May 9, 2012... Back from NJ and ready to ROCK!

OK, so I've been back from NJ since Monday and I'm just now posting but... We had a BLAST!

Ayla and I drove up to NJ Friday (21 hours in the car) and then attended the Super Wild Pig Show on Saturday and Sunday and then drove back to Florida (another 23 hours in the car).  We had a Great time.  I met a bunch of old friends, met a few new ones and did a bunch of art.  I also picked up a piece of HERO fan art from my good friend Harold Jennett III (which I will post as soon as I scan the thing in, he he he).

Starting to look forward to the next big show... NY Comic Con in October.  I've signed up for a table and we'll see what happens from there.  More announcements coming soon.  Now back to work...
