I’ve come to really love these two, despite the big plot holes in the movie. Particularly taking into account deleted scenes and supplemental materials such as “A Sister More Like Me,” these two shine as excellent characters that learn and grow in reaction to being sisters.
I tried to somewhat mimic the gouache painting style seen in that book. I also wanted to depict the idea that Elsa was a lonely mountain that only the sky (Anna) could reach. It was a big challenge for me so it took forever, but I think I learned a lot from it. I used Art Rage start to finish.
To see the full detail, look for me in the east coast con circuit. I will have 8x11” and 11x17” prints available at the Gay Breakfast Studio table!
Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.
The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).
Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
Was digging through my old work folder and came across these roughs from last summer. They were originally going to be shown at a theme-park gallery run by a company that rhymes with “Bisney”. Needless to say, there was some weirdness with contract stuff and the project fell through. Thought it would be fun to share these anyhow!
