I met Gigi Cheng (DA: *Foozyschtuff*) through my good pal Caramel Coffee (a TP member). Gigi was on a reality TV show last year called Art Star and is currently making a name for herself in the NYC art scene. A few years back she worked alongside CC for many loooong days and nights doing animation for Cartoon Network, and drank many cups of coffee in that time :)

She created a series of offbeat humorous paintings based on that experience, using people she knows as models. When she asked me to sit for a portrait, I was only too eager to say yes!

So here's me, looking deranged, apparently after having WAY too much coffee?



All the paintings feature different animals - I was lucky to get birds since they are my fave critters!
The blue/white coffee cups are standard deli issue in NYC - as representitive of the big apple as yellow taxis and skyscrapers. I believe Gigi actually painted in part with coffee to create the brownish tones.

The last time was on the R platform at Canal Street. I got a clothesline tackle hug! That was last month.
She was probably at Robert's B-day party tonght, I couldn't go since I had a dental appt. I am getting my smile fixed for next weekend's pics! ;)

That is so great! It's such a fun painting! :) I just love your boots and the birdie that looks like he has had it laying upon the coffee cup. He just cracks me up.

I always picture you smiling so that part throws me a little. ;) And BTW, I just LOVE your dress in your "real" photo? Its red right? Its so "hot". :cathorny:

LOL! When posing for her I was actually wearing a black shirt, not green - but otherwise she got the clothing just right. Gigi asked me to look 'befuddled' and pull a weird face, like I was tripping out and seeing things that weren't there, but before during and after I WAS smiling, a lot!

Thanks (for the compliment on the dress) :) It's black with red flowers and vines ~ Red/black is a fav color scheme of mine. I miss that dress! I lost it somewhere in NJ after the NJ meet (where I hosted Pony Feud!)

*hugs*

See I told ya it was "hot"! Lost it in NJ did ya my friend? LOL *Tease*. It's really pretty, reminds me of an Asian style. I love the red/white/black combo too. I don't wear a lot of red though due to the red tones in my skin. Just love it though! :)
