Angry Derp Cat by Meg Lyman
Gouache and ink on ACEO
Immediately following my rant on fan art, I post fan art. Oh, the irony.
I love Angry Birds, both the game and the design. I was doodling at the convention last weekend and had a brainstorm – Angry Birds pigs can be made into just about anything! Literally. I was so inspired by the possibilities that I spat out a couple dozen sketches and started painting them right away on ACEOs. It is so much fun and I can’t stop. I doodled a derpy shark that made me giggle whenever I looked at it – I have never sketched anything that made me laugh like that, and I am not used to the accompanying odd stares. From con-goers, no less.
So… am I being hypocritical? It doesn’t feel like it to me – I changed the idea, and I’m just doing it for a fun diversion. I am interested in everyone’s thoughts on this one!
