Aside from traveling during my Spring Break, I became completely obsessed with the image of Karl Lagerfeld holding his Karl Lagerfeld Barbie Doll and painted multiple versions of it. On top of that, I was offered a SOLO show at a LA gallery set to open in approximately 8 weeks. Gulp. Needless to say, I'll be spending the days leading up to the show working on new pieces, completing older works I never bothered to finish, and UGH, all that matting and framing and shipping. SInce it's April Fool's Day, I may be joking. Only time will tell. More details soon. Medium: Gouache on paper. Original sketches may be viewed here.
Here's another version of the image as it currently hangs in my studio. I wasn't kidding when I said I became obsessed. Medium: transfer sketch, collage, gouache, acrylic on paper affixed to the wall with Lagerfeld-esque tacks I created from tree pods. Happy Birthday Molly and others who were born on April Fool's Day.
