I love flamingos, they are my absolute favorite animal. I started my flamingo painting and as I was about to finish I dripped black paint on its face! Who does that? Me of course. I cleaned up my supplies and turn out the lights in my studio, feeling super sad and defeated. The next morning I went back in determined to fix my flamingo. My artwork tends to be kind of silly so I thought how about turning that black splat into a cool mask, a super hero mask. So that's what I did. I left him alone for a week not loving the way he turned out. During this time we were on vacation when inspiration hit. I couldn't wait to get home and fix my flamingo once again. This time I knew what I wanted him to be... El Flamingo Feroz, or The Fierce Flamingo, the greatest animal luchador in the zoo!
I was invited to vend at another upcoming art show called Vinyl Thoughts. This show features Munny's created by local artist. I decided to get in the spirit by creating my own. I bought my blank yesterday, I went for Trikky because he was shaped like a cat. Today I turned Trikky into "El Jaguar Jeopardous". I can't wait to show him off at the show. I may have to take a trip back to the comic book store and buy a few more blanks.
Here's a peak at my new series of paintings Luchamals . Prints are available in my new Society6 shop www.society6.com/StudioLongoria and on etsy www.StudioLongoria.etsy.com
