Artwork Inspired by my Favorite Young Adult Books

Growing up in the 90s, I read a lot of books.  Particularly, I love (this is in present tense I still love these books to this day) The Babysitter’s Club, Goosebumps, and the Sweet Valley series.

Which is why I am extra excited to see this article from Buzzfeed titled, “11 Works of Art Inspired by Young Adult Novels.”  After reading the article and looking at the pictures, it lead me to the website for Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles that has all of these works on display.

Here are a few of my favorites:

Colored pencil and ink on paper. Approximately 6

“Mary Anne” by Anne Sullivan

I honestly don’t remember Mary Anne from the Babysitter’s Club wearing glasses but overall, I think Sullivan captured her personality really well.

“Night of the Living Clay” by Cuddles and Rage

From the “Night of the Living Dummy” saga which is a part of the Goosebumps series by R.L. Stein.  Slappy the Dummy looks both evil and cute here.

“The Temptation of Stacey McGill” by Daisy Church

Ann M. Martin never fails to mention Stacey’s diabetes in every book.

“Jessica and Elizabeth” by Pricilla Wilson

I love this gold metallic silkscreen by Wilson because both Jessica and Elizabeth’s beauty is captured here without emphasizing their blond hair and blue eyes.

You can see more at Gallery1988.  Some of the pieces are still on sale.

Instagram Fridays: College Humor video about Instagram cliches

College Humor posted this incredibly hilarious video about cliché Instagram pictures.  I’m definitely guilty of some of these.  Are you?

Instagram Fridays: Doodling Documentation

I recently started to follow Doodlers Anonymous on Facebook.  As a doodle artist, I find the work featured in the site to be engaging and inspiring.  On August 20, 2012 DA featured an artist named Sophie Roach whose designs are bright and intricate.  Sophie documents her process on her Instagram account as well.

 

 

 

In fact, Sophie has inspired me to document my artwork on my Instagram.

 

Happy Creativity Time everyone!
