"Sugar and Spice"!! An anime show featuring 4 female artists and their "process" of creating characters resembling the sweet or spicy kind.
The Beaumont Studios and 4 talented ladies from the Vancouver anime scene are thrilled to announce the opening of Sugar & Spice - an all girls mixed media anime exhibition featuring: Jenn Brisson, Meghan Shaw, Morgan Corkum and Rachel Petrovicz
Personally, i don't find the art THAT anime, and i think a lot of true hardcore anime fans would agree... but just throwing it out there... WE ARE NOT TRYING TO RE-INVENT ANIME! Because "anime" is technically the Japanese word for "animation", The Beaumont thought our work fit perfectly. And even when looking at the word "animation", one thinks of movement. So for this show, we were asked to present art from the very beginning stages of our process and then show the final work along side with it. So, the audience can move with the artist and view how each "character" is thought out and actually born into a piece of final art.
Asides from me, the other artists in the show experienced their FIRST showing and i want to say congrats to them and thought the whole night was quite fun! Lots of people turned out and i thought the work looked pretty cool.
