The NINE IDOLS – One More to go…

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

1 Timothy 6:10 New International Version (NIV)

Here it is, the second to last of the Nine Idols.  I’m sure it’s pretty self-explanatory just by looking at all those dollar signs as well as the verse above.  I named him G, Benny G, based on an old slang ‘in it for the Benjamin‘ (referring to the $100 Bill which has, you guessed it, Ben Franklin’s face on it).  This was also the first time I had tried gilding, which is the art of applying metallic flakes (here it was 24K gold, or so they say) onto the surface that had been sized (some fancy word for glue, actually, but one that stays sticky for up to 24 hours).

I just have one more to go before I call it for the summer.   Stay tuned…

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
