Happy Birthday, America!


Click for a better look!

This is a refined, painted version of a drawing I did a couple years ago. Inspired by the fact that among all the mascots roaming the Mall of America, they have no official character to represent the mall as a whole. There's Sharky from the aquarium, a frog from the Rainforest Cafe, a disgusting plush shrimp from Bubba Gump, a moose from a mini-golf course, and of course there's Spongebob & Co., but no official icon from the Mall of America to greet the guests. This is my pitch.

It's been a while since I've done an acrylic painting of anything other than a celebrity, and I think there is much work to be done. There are several areas of slop here. Time to not use the busy summer season as an excuse for not painting more.
