Twilight Zone: The Eye of the Beholder

I was thrilled to be invited to participate in the Twilight Zone Tribute Show that Gallery 1988 LA will be hosting May 18th.  I can’t begin to tell you how fun re-watching these shows for “research” was.  Seriously, best job in the world.

My first piece is based on the well-known episode, The Eye of the Beholder.  A woman wrapped in bandages who said to be so ugly, that the surgery preformed on her face is her last hope.  At the climax of the show, the doctors slowly unravel the bandages (which seems to go on for ages), to reveal a beautiful woman.  Then the camera pans back to show that all of the doctors and nurses look ugly and deformed.

Save the Date

August seems to be quickly approaching, which is kind of a good thing b/c planning a small out-of-state shindig has proved harder than we originally thought it would be.  Wes & I decided on sending out simple 6in x 6in postcards that had a bit of folk art feel to them.

I sketched up an image that included both our home states and the tiny church we’ll be married in.  I then painted the color separately and layered them together to give a slightly silk-screened effect.  We then built our own site (more on that later) and will be letterpressing our own invites with our brand-new (but old) letterpress.
