Well they are, but not for days on end.  But I have a dilema.  I'm not fond of all the modern posters that just....exist.  They're too mainstream for my hipster tastes.  Or something.  Also, I happened to have a whole weekend free from just about everything.  So, I made my first poster.  It's the size of a posterboard.  Obviously.

I copied the design free-hand from a picture I found somewhere on the internet.  It's my favorite.  I sort-of copied the color ideas from somebody who colored in the same picture I found.  That one was done in watercolors though, and I'm fond of pencils myself.  It's a bit of Picasso, especially by the chair, because I can't draw straight lines.  But I'm fond of it, since it was my first larger-than-an-8-by-11 drawing.

But I still had bald walls.  So a snow-storm was so kind to swing by and close down town so I could have some free time to make another poster.

Again, inspired from a picture somewhere on the internet.  Folks, if it's your picture I have, you're fabulous. Cheesy  Anyways.  This one is painted with random acrylic paints I had.  I only had red, white, and black, so I tried to find a picture that used few colors.  I wanted to do a different one, and still might (but it's more of a crayons or water-color sort of thing, not colored pencils or acrylic paint), but this one was fabulous enough.  And I like it lots.  Antipodean means "direct opposite of something" or so my dictionary says.  It also means "of New Zealand or Australia."  I had to look it up, even though I watched the movie. ._.

So there you are.  I made posters.  No more bald walls. Smiley

Personal art is the best remedy for bald walls!  I really like the second one, the black pops on the yellow poster board Smiley

Really cool! And your lettering is pretty good, too. Don't ever stop what you enjoy.
