Neighborhood Barbecue by lemonflower Neighborhood Barbecue by lemonflower
This is the bulk of an art installation I completed this spring. In real life it's a diorama set up in an abandoned phone box, about 27" tall x 12" wide x 7" deep. There's some other art assets but they don't fit neatly into this drop-shadowed digitally layered version - namely a banner that fits different dimensions to replace the phone company's name. Also, if you were to stand in front of the physical piece you could peek in between the layers to see more art! Well, baby's gotta learn to take photos some day, but unfortunately I haven't yet. 

Watercolor & digital (the diorama is printed on heavy archival paper and mounted on foamcore, then sealed behind plexiglass; also if you ever want to feel like a boss and a half I recommend drilling through stainless steel just like WHIRR WHIRR NOW THERE'S A HOLE).

this is so gorgeous ;___; I'm so in awe of your watercoloring, I have been for years. you still, basically, paint the pieces and then "fill" the colors in to be more solid digitally? I remember you explained it to me once. but even so, I can't get how you can do it all so neatly and clean omg...

That sounds like it was a cool project to participate in! The illustration looks beautiful here so I can only how amazing it would look in person!

Thank you! In person, I'm proud of the art itself...the installation is a liiittle rough. It was my first time working on-site on public art and there's a visible learning curve.

If you ever wanted to do one you should get in touch with one of the artists, they could probably point you to some funding/someone who can grant permission!

No problem! I actually ended up saving it to a folder where I keep the amazing art that helps inspire me to keep drawing! ^-^
