Arts Month {illustration}

San Diego is having it's first Arts Month starting today. Arts Month San Diego (AMSD) is a collaboration of museums, visual and performing artists, and art organizations that have come together this September to put on shows, festivals and offer discounts for local art. The list of events is too long to share here, but check out their site at Read story here.

I did this illustration for a special section on the month-long event. The painting mimicks Van Goghs Starry Night, except it's a sunny day! The pose of the viewer is after an illustration by Norman Rockwell called Art Critic. I added the flip flops to drive home the "San Diego" feel. I thought it turned out swell. Hope you can make it to some of the events this month. I will certainly try.
