Icarus/Scream

LateHW today: Art by Sam AC Smith.

"It's a cross between Edvard Monk's 'The Scream' and Henri Matisse's 'The Fall of Icarus.' I figure it's a literal take on the theme. I like exploring positive and negative space in my drawings and doodles, specifically by overlapping enclosed shapes to give everything a checkerboard feeling. I think of it as establishing rules for each drawing or doodle" -SS

Inside the Mind of an INFP

Featured Late Homework today: "Inside the Mind of an INFP" Art by Jennifer Tiedemann.

"I drew this when I was thinking a lot about my Myers-Briggs type and how it affects my life. I'm an INFP, which means that I am a dreamer with a vibrant imagination, and I'm susceptible to feeling things too strongly. I think about the "what-ifs" of situations all the time--I consider all possibilities before making a decision. It's gotten me into trouble more than a few times, I have to remember that reality and my feelings aren't always one and the same!

My workspace is depicted as neutral and colorless, in contrast to the wacky color palette of everything running through my mind at any given moment" -JT

Gilmore Dogs

Rebecca Todaro paints the likeness of your favorite side characters from Gilmore Girls over pictures of dogs she salvaged from a vintage dog grooming book in a series called Gilmore Dogs

I'm not 100% sure Gilmore Girls was actually significant to me growing up, or if I just ascribed it that status because I felt it should be on principle. I don't think it shaped who I am as a person, but it was important to me as something my mom and I watched together and bonded over when I was in High School, and it gave us a reason to collectively roll our eyes at my dad when he'd walk in and exclaim "She's supposed to be her mom? She looks like her sister!" (THAT'S KIND OF THE POINT).  

Only recently did I realize that neither of us cared that much about Lorelai or Rory or their rotation of boyfriends (besides that we hated Logan with such a passion that we had to care a little). Ultimately, though, we were in it for the kooky townspeople and accompanying subplots that populated Stars Hollow. Forget the Yale vs Harvard drama! We wanted more of Jackson sleeping in the zucchini patch!

So when buzz about the revival started up last fall, I was a teeny bit resentful that everyone only seemed to be talking about Dean, Jess, and Logan (again, Logan especially can f**k right off). As a result, Gilmore Dogs was a born as a humorous tribute to the oft under appreciated side characters that I grew up loving so much. Now call me when Babette gets her own spin-off!
