Hey guys, AC again with another Lauren Carney Art Project update! If you missed our announcement about this super cool project, you can find it here.
So about that update. Um…
Lauren is powering through this humongous wall, turning it into what may actually be the most captivating battle between pirates and mermaids EVER. THIS IS SO EXCITING!!
I caught up with Lauren for a quick chat about her intense week of painting…
AC: So what are you working on this week?
Lauren: Still having a crack at the mermaids. The line work has proved to be pretty tedious, but that’s mostly because I’ll have like four coffees a day and get crazy jittery hands. It’s an internal battle but I’ll totally come out on top.
AC: Do you have a favourite mermaid?
Lauren: Do you know what, at the moment I really like the selfie mermaid. She’s like “I’m a hot babe and everybody knows it!”
AC: How close to finishing the mermaid scene are you?
Lauren: I think I’m probably about three days off. The SharkieCon ladies ruled the floor over the weekend, so I wasn’t working on it during SharkieCon – I think I’ll finish it mid this week.
AC: So once you’re done with the mermaids, what’s the next thing you’ll be working on?
Lauren: The battle! The battle between the mermaids and the pirates, with the kraken, that will be happening. I’m pretty excited to get that started because they’re all riding koi fish and jellyfish and it’s going to look super cool.
Did I already say “wow”? I think I did. Let me say it again: wow. I really hope we make a piece out of this print because I need it on me.
Our next update is gonna be super exciting because it will be after SharkieCon, and this ridiculously awesome concept space will be open for business. Ooooooh how exciting! I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it.
Stay tuned, ladies and gents.
