For this project we had to choose a famous artist and take inspiration from their work. I chose the inspiration of Alphonse Mucha, an artist would illustrate posters for plays and have the actress as the main focus of the piece. In the past the focus of artwork had been on scenes from the Bible and such, and now suddenly celebrities were getting raised up to the same level as Gods, especially with Mucha illustrating them with the halo (circle) behind their heads.
I decided to do my own spin on it based off of Carly Rae Jepsen's new music video for "I Really Like You". It got a lot of publicity really fast because of who all was in the video. The focus on the music starts to get lost and it's just this obsession with the people themselves. So . . . I made some super insane fan art.
Absolutely every part of all these drawings has meaning which can be pinpointed back to who's in the picture. Can you spot all the references?
