Alright, day 2!
I am a big fan of Jim Henson and many of his creations and have grown up always loving the Muppets. And, doing artwork of the Muppets is not a new thing for me. I really enjoy creating art from these characters, be it Muppets or characters from the Dark Crystal or Labyrinth. I just realized that I have been ignoring the characters from Fraggle Rock and I should probably do something about that! Muppet portraits will be one of the subject matters for me during this 30 day challenge. Starting off with Fozzie is a great place to begin. If I were to rank my favorite Muppets I think Fozzie would be right near the top. While his jokes are typically groan worthy, he is very lovable. First off, visually, I love his texture. His fur is crazy. And he rocks the polka dot scarf! I also remember him having issues with people throwing bananas at him which has not been a subject that has been brought up recently. On the outside he is a crazy guy saying “wocka wocka” and getting up on stage to tell jokes, but on the inside he is very self conscious. I think artists can relate to putting your work out for everyone but being very self conscious about it.
