Alright, before I get to the contest I have some things I gotta share. First off I got a new job working at Amazon. Very excited about it because now my Fiance` and I can plan to move out on our own in the next year or so.
And now to the important part!
That's right I figured another contest was in order now that I have a few more prizes available! :bounce:
Type of contest
-It's going to be a drawing type of contest. There will only be one winner and I will use random.org to pick the winner.
Winner will recieve
-1 Free commission of their choosing. This can be a sculpture, drawing or a digital
This was a piece I had to do my architectural art project for my Drawing II class. The project is designed for the artist to create the most unique or surreal building that they could think of that would actually stand or function ( if my paraphrasing was correct). I decided to make a piece paying tribute for both the Marx Brothers and Salvador Dali.
-The building on the beach alone the Ducks is a reference to the Marx Brothers movie, The Cocoanuts~
-The "F" (as in Freedonia) is a reference to Duck Soup~
-The duck and ducklings is a reference to their most famous line, "Why A Duck"?~
-The tie= Zeppo Marx (or rather all four bros.)~
-The top hat and horn= Harpo Marx~
-The glasses, cigar, and mustache= Groucho~
-The Tyrolean hat= Chico Marx~
-Leaning building= Salvador Dali-esque surrealism
The reason why I done this was because Salvador Dali was actually hired by Harpo Marx to make a series of pieces based around the brothers' act and also to direct a film the features the brothers called Giraffes on Horseback Salad. Groucho have rejected idea due to the fact that it didn't make that much since even for a Marx Brothers film and it didn't really sound funny. The film has gone on made that was made in two different adaptations took form as either stage plays or stories. I might try to add on more stuff like more animals and objects referencing difference Marx Brothers films along with palm trees on the island. Do you guys think that I should enter this in the Jefferson State artshow once its completely finished?
