Sweeney inspired art...
I have been attempting to see [most of] the Oscar nominated films before the big night, and so far so good. Last night we went to see Sweeney Todd, and tonight I watched Surf's Up.
Interestingly enough, the one that inspired me farrrrr more, was the live action one. Sweeney Todd [despite the gore and blood] was so beautiful in its' cinematography, time period, acting and such-fun lyrically genius-esque soundtrack. [Who knew Depp could sing too?]
It inspired me to take out my pastels and get my fingers dirty... and what fun it was! As cool as Photoshop is, it will never replace the tangible feeling of pushing colour around on a thick-toothed stock. I loved this dude [almost as much as Alan Rickman!]... he is so rat-like.
And a few cards I painted today as well... art is so fun without deadlines!
