Earlier this week I found out that I got five pieces into this year’s Society of Illustrator show which is very very exciting. Also, I realized I had never posted the winning paintings anywhere before.
This series was started while I was still in France, fascinated by the apathetic teenagers I would see, French or simply visiting, who couldn’t care less about whatever priceless one-of-a-kind rusty dusty piece of art they were being dragged along to stare at. For me, everything was exciting, new, gorgeous, life affirming in the cheesiest way but I’d inevitably walk past the tween having the worst day of his/her short 14 year old life.
I’ll post here when the exhibit opens and for those in New York for the month of January, you’ll get a chance to see these (and a slew of other AMAZING pieces) at the Society.
