"Unless Someone Like You Cares a Whole Awful Lot...

...Nothing is going to get better - it's not."

So for Friday's You-Pick-My-Art, the popular vote by a landslide was The Lorax.  This Dr. Seuss book was my absolute favorite as a kid, so I'm pretty happy it won ^_^  It was really difficult to choose a design for it, because there is so much from the story I just love.  I narrowed it down to five key scenes that I painted on each nail.




I had toyed with the idea of blending the book art with the movie art, but decided to stick to the book since most people did not like the movie version of the story.  I actually liked it, I loved the resolution in the end and seeing the Lorax come back :)  But I'm such a softy and a sucker for happy endings :D

Sorry to cut this short, I've got a little toddler pulling on my arm, wanting to show me (for the 20th time) how his train looks when it crashes :P  Hope you all enjoyed this art!  Have a wonderful Monday :)

  1. Glad you stuck with the book :) As always, the art is amazing and how you can manage such detail on such small canvases is a mystery.

    1. Well thank you! Teeny tiny paint brushes are my golden ticket for these ;)
