Ann Arbor Art Fairy

…To date, there are NO Google results for “Ann Arbor Art Fairy,” or even “A2 Art Fairy” which is surprising, given the Fairy Doors all over Ann Arbor and the near-impossibility of coming up with any ungoogleable pun. But there you are… I came up with the concept & this first-draft design for my good friend Elmo at Elmo’s T-Shirts for the Art Fair this year, but he opted to keep the concept but go with a more generic stock-art fairy, which he suspected would sell better to the generic sheeple. I…just…can’t fully approve of stock art… but I’ve always liked Elmo,  it’s all OK by me.

I’m hoping the “Ann Arbor Art Fairy”  idea brings him some additional revenue to make up for all the people asking to use his bathroom and coming in to his (excellent) t-shirt store complaining about OH MY GOD IT’S HOT/RAINING. Maybe next year I’ll try to draw him another one…with less crazy detail.

About nitrovonborax

The Mighty Arthammer of von Borax strikes the Anvil of Universal Consciousness, forging Iconic Singularities of Metaphor. Nitro von Borax is widely recognized as the natural heir to the crumbling facade of an empire that Thomas Kinkade built with massmarket hack-retouched cottagey papscapes, which glow as though lit by pernicious chip-grease fires within and trigger pleasurable dissociative transport to the plebian viewer. Mr. von Borax, known to his discerning, sophisticated & politically progressive fans as "The Painter of Sprinkly Sparkles," pulls inspiration from Betty & Veronica BOTH, stolen travel brochures & comic books, Martin Denny & Italian Giallo Movies to visualize and manifest pure unfettered awesomeness for your astral excursions. His portfolio resonates at a frequency only bats can hear.
