Heres a painting I did the other week of Papa Smurf. Ive really been into the new wave of minimalism posters and t-shirts that keeps popping up. So I racked my brain for a bit and came up with this. I love how with a few different shapes and colors you can tell a detailed story.

Im adding an update to this post because of some comments my little cousin has made to me. I have an eight year old cousin who is very into arts and crafts. And when I got to spend some time with her the other week I showed her some of my paintings. She is big into the Smurfs right now so I thought she would love my Papa Smurf painting. I was soooo wrong, she tore me apart with her unabashed eight years old thoughts. She was so mad about how I painted him "wrong" that I decided to paint her a more traditional smurf. So here it is, Im nervous to give it to her and hear her criticisms.

Amazing. With the blue background, all you need is the hat and the beard to know exactly who it is.
