The rich and famous on the bad slope

[January 25th, 2012] Please view this on black too

 

The first thing I need to write today is this; I'M LATE, SORRY !

It's actually the first time I'm late till the new year of Teleidoscope started... What a shame... Hope it won't happen again. Not even once. Well, here it is anyway ! It's my entry for the theme "Movie star".

 

Instead of illustrating the big, bright superstar, I decided to choose a more "dark side" of fame. I wanted so much elements in this, such as official prices ceremonies (the outfit), the fact of the ephemera effect (dark -> light). And then more simply I wanted to include THE two things I think represent well movie stars and celebrities in general; glasses & cigarette !

Mixing all that, I decided to make it darker and to illustrate a star on the bad slope (in French the expression is "sur la mauvaise pente"... I don't know if it exists traduced like that in english... If someone know that, I'm curious to know).

 

I wanted to precise that I don't smoke in real life ! I borrowed this cigarette ! *hahaha*

 

How's your life right now ? I just feel like I'm accomplishing so many things at the moment. I really like that though ! Maybe I'll need to go to the hairdresser soon...
