Turkish Romani Dancer

"Everything can be killed except nostalgia for the kingdom, we carry it in the color of our eyes, in every love affair, in everything that deeply torments and unties and tricks."
- Julio Cortazar

I painted this about 4 years ago. It is done in acrylics on canvas (which is about 4 ft tall). For some reason I actually enjoyed spending time painting all the embroidery and lace.

I Used To Like Christmas?

Throwback. Circa 2001. I should have probably made more friends in middle school.

Some Inspiration

While doing research for my term paper about the Romani people, I remembered one of my favorite paintings. Here is "Gypsy Woman" (1886) by Nikolai Yaroshenko.

Merry Freakin Christmas

And they'll feast, feast, feast, feast. They'll eat their Who-Pudding and rare Who-Roast Beast.

Modern Day Baba Yaga

This is a quick (and maybe slightly exaggerated) storyboard of what happened to me last weekend.

This is what happens to bad little children who misbehave (or when I get bored doing an assignment for photo retouching class).
