3G+1G=4G

Feeling restricted by the limitations of ASOP's 3G Show, I was inspired by yet another mid-eighties hero, Nigel Tufnel, to go beyond the norm and break through into uncharted territory (G-wise). That's right- FOUR Gs! Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Goonies…..and Goya!
Each of the drawings are based on an etching by the super-great Spanish artist Francisco Goya (above). Well, the one is based on a painting, and it turns out that after much debate and x-ray diagnostics, he may not have even been the one that painted it, but hey.

My Gs go up to 4.

The variety of great work and ideas I've seen on the blog ought to produce a pretty spectacular show. Thanks much to Joe for including the elderly in such an exuberant event. Buena suerte.

Many different types of stickers are used to create sticker art. Inexpensively-purchased and free stickers such as "hello my name is" name tags or the United States Postal Service's Label 228 are often used with hand-drawn art.
