Apologizes all around to you viewer, as I have been side tracked with a book I am writing for later this year, along with a camera upgrade (more information to come). We're back, and it's now time to unveil Meat Your Maker individually. Each one of these has a story to their creation and since we already know about the drummie, the item that started it all, it's only fair to start it off by seeing where that drummie went. I call this "YKFDRUMMIE", short for Yellow/KFC/Drummie. The chicken itself is actually from a local farm, the source of a separate blog later, Hillbunker Farms. This farm offers wool balls for dryers, local honey, soaps, pigs, lambs, eggs, and chicken to name a few. They do pretty good for themselves, and it was a pleasure to work with them on this project. As you can tell by the previous blogs the art style and design that I was going for was executed perfectly and right down to the chicken colored and edited to look like a monochromatic dollar bill face. I'm really happy with the results! As your eyes go down the piece you can see a vibrance and liveliness to it slowly wash away into want it becomes. Now I didn't want it to be too depressing towards the bottom but a more solemn monotoned and monochromatic theme needed to be implemented, so it was a departure from color topside to black/white/grey at the bottom. Each one of the "products" at the bottom also fit a street art style, as mentioned before in a previous blog I believe. For this piece of the triptych I went for a Banksy-like black and white vector, colorized it, and still tried to give it the vector paper urban poster feel. To re-iterate, this is one part of a three part triptych, and you'll see the other pieces in the next few days separately. So please do check back as I'll give each one their time to shine. This leads up to a great Summer store update coming in July where Meat Your Maker will be one of the many things that gets added! Check back in a few days, and thanks for stopping by!
