Hopefully in a about a week I will begin painting a street piano for the city of Shoreline. I haven’t met with anyone to go over the details yet, but I’ve decided I’d like to make it Alice in Wonderland themed if they’ll allow it.
So I’ve started playing around with faces and symbols related to Alice. No serious drawing, just doodling, mostly with (non-erasable, doh!) pen. Just to get my head in the right place.
More details on the piano soon.
great sketches – hope you get to use your ideas on the piano =D
Loved your sketches, especially Alice growing larger within the confines of the sides of the piano… ‘Alice’ was always one of my favorite books, I still own a couple copies of it. Hope your own journey ‘down the rabbit hole’ goes smoothly!
Alice in Wonderland is so awesome…
totally. it’s amazing how long it’s been around, and that it’s still loved by so many. that’s pretty cool…
Painting a street piano – that’s marvelous! I do hope you get to do the Alice theme. I love your start! There is such a rich history of amazing artists interpreting Through the Looking Glass and Alice in Wonderland, and each interpretation is wonderful to explore.
thanks! i hope that i get to do it too! i’ve always wanted to play around with those characters and I think the street piano is a perfect place to do it, because there will be a wide audience, and people both young and old will be able to relate to it. plus, it’s a great opportunity to throw around a lot of color. woohoo!
