Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl: Broken Aeroplanes.

I usually listen to music very carefully and Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl is the result of my active attention. Aware that my work is deeply inspired by rock bands and songs I deeply enjoy, my translation remains unconscious. Sometimes I realize often only months later that a specific song lead me to create a specific world. What a mysterious adventure...

Broken Aeroplanes by Richard Butler (from his 2006 solo album): I don't know why exactly but this beautiful song inspired me to concoct a depressing – but almost happy – mood, I can call desperate indifference. (Broken Aeroplanes on youtube) Then I hand drew this sad and smart cupcake girl.

On the photographed drawing, coloration was done with Photoshop.

I took the ice rink background from another one of my images I made for a cartoon on an absolutely beautiful (beautifully absolute!) cover of Joy to the World by Frank Fuller.

Enjoy the candy bittersweet color palette of Winter Sinking Cupcake Girl. I love pop music.

Yeti in a tree.

The scientific community generally regards the Yeti as a legend, given the lack of conclusive evidence, yet it remains one of the most famous creatures of cryptozoology. The Yeti may be considered a sort of parallel to the Bigfoot of North America. (Wikipedia)

Yeti lives in snowy mountains.

The Abominable Snowman is a 1957 British horror film, directed by Val Guest and starring Forrest Tucker and Peter Cushing.

After long and deep reflection, I concluded that yetis also have the ability to live in a tree.

At least MY yetis, who became ornaments, since I attached a thin loop on their head for hanging.

This mini ninja yeti monster ornament plush was stuffed and hand stitched by me.

Lou Petit-Boni sleeps in a mini matchbox.

Yeah! Lou Petit-Boni is the fourth Petit-Boni listed in my Etsy shop. He is a tiny ninja bunny sleeping in a mini matchbox, measuring 2 x 1.5 inch (5 x 4 cm). The box is painted in orange acrylic, roughly sandpapered and decorated with original drawings.

Good morning, spring green ninja bunny.

Lou and Betty Petit-Boni like to play with fire.
