There’s a reason I haven’t been writing posts. I’ve been working on a website called Pop Mirror. I’ve been doing a lot of art for the site. Pop Mirror’s not made yet but you can get a taste of it on its facebook page. http://on.fb.me/i5Qqej Its fame and pop culture shown through pop art.
Like the facebook page to see cartoons of celebs like Charlie Sheen and to say other ones you want to see.
And Previews of comics like Snow that will be on the site. Snow is a modern retelling of Snow White. In this version Snow’s got more attitude than the Disney version. She’s trying to just get through high school, but being who she is, she is surrounded by fameballs and the jealous eye of her stepmother
You can ask for cartoons you want to see either at http://on.fb.me/i5Qqej or on twitter @Popmirror.
Tell me what you think.
With the magic of photoshop I was about to transform a normal photo of myself into a cartoon version of me like they’ve been doing in some of the commercials recently. If you remember what commercials please tell me.
And no I’m not obsessed with myself but I’m the only person I have full rights over my picture and I don’t have any models because I don’t have money like that. So like many artists I will keep doing self portraits until I can get someone to pose for me or something. Look Vincent Van Gogh did a ton of himself. We share the same birthday among other things.
I finally read Maus. It’s a graphic novel split into two books, although you can find them in one, in which the comic artist portrays himself as trying to understand his father’s past. His father was a Polish Jew who survived the concentration camps during World War II. This book is not just about his father’s experience, but also about the artist’s experience with his father.
The graphic novel is truly a survivor’s tale: the father’s and the son’s. If you think comics are just for kids or the child at heart think again and read this semi autobiographically comic. Spielgelman uses the art form of comics to the fullest. The Germans are depicted as cats while the Jews are mice. There are also a few times in which the people are depicted in human form to separate to reality of making the comic and the comic itself. The use of exaggeration available to comics also helps with the storyline. The art is the basic black and white with square boxes that many comics have and its easy to follow.
If you’ve read Maus what do you think about it?
Remember Rainbow Brite, the 80s character and her friends with the super bright clothes? Well she’s getting a makeover. I guess that comes with getting older, because that’s what she’s doing getting a little older. Now she looks like barbie meets anime with a big head and slim waist, kind of like a Bratz doll.
Now the boys are gone, because with the bright colors they they were wearing I guess someone was afraid they were too “colorful” and I thought we were trying to move toward some type of equality. Guess not. Boys can wear bright colors if they want. But what’s Brite supposed to do now that she’s probably into boys now that she’s older and they are gone?
Recently there’s been some crossovers between the real world and the cartoon world and some updates which has provided some interesting cartoon news.
Marge Simpson graces the cover of playboy. She’s looking good for whatever age she is. I don’t think she’s aged a day since the beginning of the show.
And Sponge Bob plans his wedding to Sandy. This pic wasn’t drawn by me, but I thought it portrays the mood of their wedding well. Sponge’s getting married and the guests are out of this world! They include Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, LeBron James, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Will Ferrell, Craig Ferguson, and Rosario Dawson.
Winnie the Pooh sequel. There’s an otter and Eeyore’s” more proactive”? What’s that supposed to mean?
What do you think about this?
