Carnevale by tarantellino Carnevale by tarantellino
I HAVE BEEN GONE FOR AGES but I'm back and I have this massive painted collagey poem thing :^D

Everyone is telling me I need to get more PROFESSIONAL about my art, so here is a professional list of materials I used with professional bullet points.
:bulletblack: top section: marker and colored pencil on construction paper
:bulletblack: 2nd section with faces and rainbow thing: watercolors, india ink, sharpie and acrylics on cheap watercolor paper
:bulletblack: 3rd section with collagey bits: chopped up pieces of band music, burnt pages from an old Italian romance novel, pictures from a Topolino book, and cut up bits of old paintings
:bulletblack: 4th section with reverse color scheme: sharpie and white acrylics on black construction paper
:bulletblack: 5th section with masks: collage of printed out Carnevale masks that I plagiarized off of google images
:bulletblack: last section: acrylics and red sharpie on construction paper
:bulletblack: depressing poem was written by me
:bulletblack: the whole thing is about 8 feet tall and 5 inches wide

I FEEL SO PROFESSIONAL

I HOPE YOU GUYS LIKE THIS THING

EDIT: MOTHER MARY'S TESTICLES, I GOT A DAILY DEVIATION :iconcannotevenplz:
THANK YOU SO MUCH TO EVERYONE WHO'S COMMENTING. JUST... HFSDKFJHSDLKJHFLJKSDHKJ
I'M GONNA GO FLAIL AROUND MY HOUSE NOW AND TELL MY FAMILY
THANK YOU

Daily Deviation

Given 2012-05-28
Carnevale by *lifeandpasta Suggester Writes: This traditional mixed media visual poem piece by lifeandpasta is truly one of the most amazing I've seen. The vibrant colors and scenes blend brilliantly together and fall in sync with the sad but beautiful original poem. It looks like it took a lot of hard work ( Suggested by TammiBlue and Featured by BeccaJS )

I wish I could keep favoriting this again and again, every time I read it. It's truly a work of art, and one of my favorite poems.

Thank you. :^)
I'm actually planning on doing another one kinda like this in the next few weeks. I found this old poem I wrote a few years ago when I was really into writing, and I actually like it a lot? I think it's better than this one, so hopefully I will illustrate it before summer gets too busy. :iconbeardstrokeplz:

Holy hell, why aren't you in my watcher's list yet?!
That DD is definitely yours to keep, it almost feels like a song just ran through my head, and I've experienced an entire event. I especially love the pauses in between the poems where pictures take up the meaning of words and it all just sinks in somehow.
And for the heck of it I can't get over the fact that you're barely a year younger than me.
