Why can’t I be popular?

June 7, 2007

Amoeba and her Friends by Ellen BrooksYes. Why can’t I be popular? I am not asking this for myself, I am asking this for one of my paintings “Amoeba and her Friends.”

Personally, I could not careless about popularity contests but this is not the case for Amoeba and her Friends. They are so put off by the fact that they have received nearly the least views of anything else listed in my ETSY shop. Ever since I’ve created Amoeba, she has griped and groaned about “that hideous acid green” that I’ve set her afloat in. On and on she goes about “why did I finish with gloss varnish here” or “why am I so obsessed with adding texture” to everything. What a crab she is! Perhaps the Etsy world will decide that Amoeba and her friends need to remain hanging on my wall. That would be alright by me because I love that acid green color I mixed up one sunny Sunday and as for Amoeba’s filthy mouth, well at least she cares, right? 😛

BRILLIANT!

June 6, 2007

Oh dear…I’ve been away for too long! Forgive me tiny readership, forgive me please…..Buddies by Ellen Brooks

Sometimes, it is the most innocent, haphazard things that you create which catch someone’s eye. For April’s Fools day, I drew my “Buddies” illustration for my Etsy shop. A group of us nutters decided to proclaim April 1st Avatar Butt day and we’d create butt themed artwork for sale. The funny thing is, out of all of the items that I’ve listed on Etsy, this Buddies illustration was the most viewed/most marked as favorite & sold before anything else since it was listed. It is a cheeky drawing and maybe I should explore my cheeky side more often 😛

I would like to thank my models for the photo which lead to this illustration, Smoky Joe & the Princess Sophia. My darlings, I know that the 3 day journey in the moving van was unpleasant….but it paid off for momma. Treats all around!!!
