Today, the library had a mega sale on Life magazines dating back to 1940. 50 cents each. So awesome. I scored $7.50 worth of those black and white/retro colored mags with the funkiest advertisements. I can’t believe some of them were actually meant to make things like jam-proof zippers, chopped ham and bras seem cool. They’re so cheezy, so great for making art.
Or, should I say, trying to make art. That’s what I did tonight. Inspired by these retro mags and new paints, I went to the art notebook. What came out is this:
Then I was staring at this ad with this chick in the lake totally trying to flirt with this guy, when a preview for one of my favorite movies, Reality Bites, came on (yeah, I was watching an old movie). That scene popped into my head where Winona Ryder is talking to Ben Stiller and he’s like, “I’m a non-practicing Jew,” and she laughs and says, “I’m a non-practicing virgin.” It’s such a great line. So I made this little wanna-be postcard. It’s retarded looking, but I think it’s all about the suave lines.
