DEAR ART SIDE OF TUMBLR
And Sherlock fans. Who does this look like?
Got me thinking. Someone really, really, really needs to do a rendering of the Sherlock cast (i.e. Sherlock, John, Lestrade, Mycroft, Moriarty etc etc) in the style of Alphonse Mucha. Please please please.
(The dragon above his head’s a little ironic don’t you think?)

Alphonse Mucha for eva
Started doing master copies. This is my first one. I totally picked mucha cause he’s awesome and I totally dig his wispy, light as a feather but still dark line control. I prolly went a little heavy on the darks and theres a lotta places I could still touch up but I suppose that’s why they say you never really finish a drawing, you only surrender it.
Here’s an awkwardly angled bathroom pic of my very first tattoo! More (flattering) pictures to come! This is just from the first session, details will be completed in April

Alphonse Mucha, New Year
I’ve always loved the work of Mucha. I’m so grateful that I was able to see a huge exhibition of his work in the Czech Museum in Cedar rapids. Seeing it live was breath taking….If you wish to see more of his work visit http://www.muchafoundation.org/galleryand let me know which pieces inspire you.
A new mid semester resolution of mine is to take more selfies - if only to elicit approximate superfuture responses of:
"whoa grandma you needed to calm down with the Mucha and tortoiseshell action what was the deal”.
"yeah it was too cool you wouldn’t understand, guys. “/elderlyhairswish

How fantastic is this Mucha Zodiac?? It’s coming up for auction at Swann on 2/25
Sale 2339 Lot 100
ALPHONSE MUCHA (1860-1939) [ZODIAC.] 1896.
25 1/4x19 inches, 65 1/2x48 1/4 cm. [F. Champenois, Paris.]
Condition B+ / A-: minor rippling in image minor creases in margins. Paper. Matted and framed.
With Zodiac, Mucha reaches the full maturity of his style, with every one of his signature design elements in their most fluid and elaborate incarnations. The image was originally published as a calendar by Champenois, but was quickly bought by La Plume, who began issuing it as a calendar with their own name at the top. The image was a huge success and was ultimately used for a variety of different advertising purposes. In all, seven different variations have been identified including this one, published by La Plume as a decorative panel. With this image, Champenois realized he could begin licensing out Mucha’s images to different companies, upon which they could imprint their own names, resulting in a very profitable side business for the printer who already owned all the rights to Mucha’s works. Rennert / Weill 19 var. 4, DFP-II 629 (var), Schardt p. 131 (var), Gold 97 (var).
Estimate $10,000 - 15,000
