I seem to have parades on the brain lately...I keep making parade-ish images without meaning to!
This little gouache painting was made for a little (literally and figuratively) project I'm working on. I ended up liking the image so much that I might offer postcards of it as well!
Not parade or painting related, but we've been obsessive about this Popeye collection lately. Not only does it have all of these beautiful black + white early Popeye episodes (like this one...not the best video quality but it's one of my favorites because the monkey is so cute!) it also has a fantastic amount of extra features. The best one is a wonderful documentary about early animation that includes some of Winsor Mccay's beautiful short films, like the creepy-lovely How a Mosquito Operates.
I never predicted I'd be nerding out over Popeye this way, but it's probably good that I can still surprise myself.
Happy weekend to you!
