AEDM: Day 2

"Scary"
(mixed media on cardstock and matboard)

It's Day 2 of AEDM.  Yesterday I shared the beginning of a honey badger collage... Today I finished it. 

The original inspiration for this painting was Illustration Friday's "Scary" theme.  On the outside, honey badgers are cute and innocent (even their name is sweet), but looks can be deceiving.  According to The Guinness Book of World Records they are "the world's most fearless creatures"... They are ferocious!

What scares me?  Things that aren't as they seem...  Nastiness with an adorable exterior terrifies me.


I started this painting by using a collage technique Amy shared in her free workshop on Saturday.  She is having another free live workshop tomorrow at 2pm CST and you're invited!

  1. :)) you blogged about the class :)))

    i am really seriously feeling honored.

    hey, your ferocious honey badger looks GREAT.

    and.
    i think i have one of those giant lolipops in the catchall drawer in my kitchen. one of my kids got it Years ago at disneyland... but who can really eat one that big?

    guess that's why it's in the drawer still. :))

    Your paintings - they are really great. not at all what 'everyone' is doing - totally your own, and totally cool.

  14. I love the way this piece turned out and how you took us through the process. You crack me up with the contridictions in this piece. The blond wig, the pink & rose gingham check and the lollipop and then the claws. Great work.
