The 2-in-1 post: The Love Show and Love Bites

Hello friends!

I was invited to participate in "The Love Show" at one of my favorite Joshua Tree galleries! This is a great show with so many fantastic and fun pieces inspired by all aspects and manifestations of LOVE! The exhibit goes until March 5, 2011. Please check it out if you can (location/directions in the link above). You just might fall in looooove with a beautiful piece of art and want to take it home with you (ooh, I hope it's one of mine!).

I have three pieces in the show, see if you notice their common theme--totally accidental! Here's a sneak peek of one of mine, inspired by my love for B-horror movies:

He loved spiders. She loved him.
An obsession grew.

I loved working on this one! The tagline was the trickiest. Then came their names, who by the way came from spiders too (arachnid). "Stella Star" came from an actual spider species, A. stellata, the Starbellied orbweaver. Writing the premise was even more of a fun challenge--cheesy. Here's the rest of the of the text--cheese spread cheesy:

Gigantic mutant spiders in a tangled web of obsession. Who will survive?
*   *   *   *   *
Dr. R. Achnid is consumed by his life-long passion of spiders. When a lab accident affects his prized specimens, he will do anything to ensure their survival.

Stella Star is madly in love with her mentor, Dr. Achnid. She will do anything to gain his affection.

A horrifying tale of an obsession gone terribly wrong.

Wouldn't you LOVE to go see this movie?! LOL ;)
