Nyan Cat to the Rescue!
[Wow, I really need to retake photographs for a lot of these pendants, don’t I. Sheesh. I was looking through some of these listings and these guys have some really shoddy photos. And the one above is one of the better images too. Jeebus.
I’ve seen several artists with Etsy shops take prints of their artwork and translate those prints into small pendants to wear. I’ve done it a few times, but more recently I’ve had a few suggestions to translate my pendants into actual paintings instead, and I think that is such a great idea. All of my hand painted pendants so far have been one of a kind, and I do still want those to be one of a kind, but I can also take some inspiration from those pendant images and take them to a different level as a painting and as prints. Nyan Cat was a request recently, and I ended up creating these two cuties: the Nyan Cat and the Nyan Bunny.
What do you think? Should I paint more Nyan Cats? Other critters? I have a super soft spot for memes. Darn you, entertaining internets!
But now I can play around and see what else I can pull out from past pendants. I also have a few ideas rolling around in my head for some more pendants in the future. It’ll be a nice change of pace from all the energy I’ve been putting in to the tarot card series.
