So here in the Big Apple, the Bryant Park fountain is frozen solid. And 200 miles from us, winter-weary Bostonians are jumping out of their windows into the snowbanks below and posting their antics on social media. This winter is determined to drive us to lunacy, and it’s succeeding. I’ve had enough. Can we fast-forward the calendar to May 1st please?
Some art-themed cartoons to warm our frostbitten heads:
It’s been ages and ages since I posted art cartoons. We’re long overdue! Here are a few that poke fun at some famous artists and works of art :lol:
Michelangelo the thug:
The real story behind da Vinci’s “Vitruvian Man”:
The Venus de Milo at a discount:
And the model for Atlas:
My friends, one of those busy, jam-packed weeks of work awaits me. It begins 10:00 Monday morning, which is less than 12 hours from the writing of this post. Modeling, modeling, and more modeling. If I don’t update the blog until the end of the week, don’t despair! I’ll just be traveling between Manhattan and Long Island, getting undressed, then dressed, then undressed again, to fulfill my posing obligations. It’s what I do. Hopefully I’ll have enough time to eat now and then. And sleep. Sleeping is good :-)
I may or may not find the time to post, but if I can’t then have a great week everybody!
Hi everyone! I have emerged from my Sunday cocoon, rested and ready to jump back into action. I’m going gift shopping shortly, but first a Christmas video for “Music Monday” :-)
When we were kids, my brother and I loved the Peanuts Gang. What kid didn’t? Peanuts rules!! In addition to the great animation and the cute, memorable characters (I was a Linus girl), Peanuts had excellent music! I’m sure none of you have forgotten the groovy, upbeat theme song composed by Vince Guaraldi. I looked forward to watching “A Charlie Brown Christmas” every year. I still watch it as an adult!
The song “Christmas Time is Here” is the musical highlight of the Peanuts Christmas special. I can sometimes relate to Charlie Brown’s feelings in this video clip. But he learns, as we all do. The song is sweet and touching and the Peanuts characters are too cute for words. Thank you Charles Schultz.
When this video ends, click on the “Christmas Dance” for some smooth moves from the Peanuts kids. A smile is guaranteed! :-)
Hellooo, helloooooo! How is everyone? I’m fine, just fighting off a teensy sore throat/cough. Nothing major. I hope my usual concoctions of herbal and natural remedies will do the trick. A lot of teas and apple cider vinegar is involved. It’s chilly here in NYC. Brrr! But it is November after all, and winter is just around the corner.
I have some more cartoons to share for the next installment of Art Model Funnies :lol: Hope they make you smile.
Professional female artist’s models are savvy enough to know that there are a lot of creeps out there, and that some guys who claim to be “artists” actually have ulterior motives. This cartoon by Rex May-Baloo says it all:
The model for the Venus de Milo confronts her past. Very funny from Ian Baker:
Really cute one by Joseph Farris:
And as always, I save my favorite for last. I’m thinking that if Rodin were alive today he would get a kick out of this. I love it. From Harley Schwadron:
Is it just me or has the entire blogosphere gone into a deep slumber? Museworthy’s traffic has dropped considerably over the past several days :sob . . sniffle: What has happened to my steady daily 8,000 unique visitors?? <— just kidding :lol: This is a summer syndrome I’m pretty sure, as I seem to recall bitching about this very problem once before, in the month of July naturally.
Well I’m not gonna take this lying down, dammit. We need some laughs and smiles and hijinks. In other words, another installment of cartoons! Maybe these will jolt us out of this lagging, comatose state. If it doesn’t work, we may have to try high potency B12 shots.
We art models like to look at the paintings we’ve been posing for. But in all my years I have yet to encounter this:
Plein air artists take note. This is from George Jartos:
I love Mona Lisa spoofs! They’re the best. Here’s one from Mark Lynch:
I usually save my favorite for last. I think this one is great! A model confiding to her therapist:
We are way, waaaay overdue for another installment of Museworthy cartoons. I’ve missed them, haven’t you? Lucky for us, I found some very cute and clever ones. And I’ve uploaded really big-ass files this time, for easier viewing and because of the captions.
From Tony Zuvela, this is a “nude” snail posing for fellow snails in art class:
A great one from Naf:
As funny as this next one is, by Jason Love, the scenario could very well take place FOR REAL among the demanding, competitive, private school-obsessed parents of New York City. No joke!
I love, love, LOVE this last one! My favorite :-) From Khan Ham:
