This last week has been busy for me, I got three watercolors framed by The Downtown Framing Outlet (Super Awesome guys who work there, very helpful, nice, and extremely well priced services) and I had TEN pieces in the Pancakes And Booze Art Show at Lot 613 in the Downtown LA Arts District!
Thanks to everyone who came out and saw the show. Here’s a picture of my art on the wall (you can tell which ones are mine) at the show and the next ones are of the pieces I got framed next to some crucifixes and The King.
I made a work out video and it stars my good friend LA ELVITA the CHOLA OF ECHO PARK!!! Watch and and get ready to BURN FOR THE GHOST OF ELVIS!!!
WATCH THE VIDEO HERE: !!!!!!!!!!!
here’s one I made when I was 16 with the great Bridget O’brien Smith.
I’m working on ink portraits right now. Really getting into it. Who doesn’t want to look at Beyonce in a snakeskin dress?
Dear Internet World,
Here are four new paintings I worked on in January. I’m really into making celebrities into Saints, and praying to them for help with troubles specific to that Saint’s specialty.
For example, I think Taylor Swift is the Saint of Broken Hearts. She sings about them all the time and so if you pray to her, she will help you with your love life.
Ann-Margaret is the Saint of being true to yourself and being a strong, classy woman. If you need some support on achieving your dreams, pray to her and she will help you. She came from Sweden and made it big in the movie business. She also rode motorcycles and was really really close friends with Elvis. She’s still alive and I would love to meet her someday.
Catherine Deneuve is also the saint of being a strong classy woman, but she’s french, so if you want to be proper and fancy, pray to her. For example if you have a fancy dinner party you need to go to and you want to look and act your best, pray to her and she will guide you.
I’m still exploring this concept. I think these would make good trading cards. Or wrappers on candles that you can burn and pray with. I know that all these ladies aren’t dead, but there are some that are dead who would be great ones too. Elvis, (duh,) Michael Jackson, JFK, MARILYN, Jackie O, Andy Warhol. All these might be commin’ round the mountain when she comes. So look out!
Are there any celebrities you would like to see made into Saints? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know. Even if they are not a celebrity, we can still work something out.
Lots of Love,
p.s. I threw a Roseblood Twin/Hidden skull painting in there too. Just to keep those Psychic sisters alive.
Good Morning Internet!
I have been working on some big stuff here at the Little Annie Motel. I made a giant Saint Stella Saint Clair statue painting, a zebra with a girl on top, some clowns, a sailor and a Jesus Lover, and my personal favorite, A giant Roseblood Twins with a hidden skull inside a crystal ball. Take a look…. If you Dare!!!!!
Lots and lots and lots and lots of Love,
Tamar Levine is a very talented photographer who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. Her work can be found at www.tamaralevine.com. I used photographs of hers to create a few collaboration pieces with ink. Check it out!
