Awhile back, I was involved in a (fabric) bookmark swap. The theme was Art Deco meets Art Nouveau. I thought of all the wonderful artists whose work I could use as reference, such as: Tamara De Lempicka, Gustav Klimt, Leon Bakst and of course, Alphonse Mucha. I appreciate the style and work of each of these artists and I wanted to mesh them altogether and spit out, (well not literally, more like create) a piece of my own. Well, things don't always happen Exactly as planned, and this case is no exception. You see, I get inspired and prefer things that are 'odd, strange, weird' over those which are considered beautiful. So, when I actually set down to begin working on this bookmark I incorporated yet another artist's work I love: Tim Burton. His "Red Queen" from Alice in Wonderland, was added to the "mix" and THIS, is what I "spit out".
I'll be posting photos of another bookmark I'm currently working on---stay tuned:)
