a requester emailed me saying, "I would like a picture that includes a van, some countryside and speakers." so here it is. a van and some speakers in the countryside. he didn't specify what music had to be coming out of the speakers so i painted them playing the musical, Wicked.
yes! three Wicked references in one week.

just three days ago i made a wicked reference because i'd rather talk about musicals than video games. right after finishing that video game series, i'm fulfilling a request for the wicked logo! i swear i didn't just create this because wicked is absolutely fabulous and i wanted to paint it. i painted it because wicked is absolutely fabulous and someone asked me to paint it. anyway, since i have this opportunity, i'd like to mention that wicked is absolutely fabulous!

final of four Final Fantasy free paintings. but after that alliteration, this guy is getting gypped because instead of writing about him, i'm going to write about a holiday. and no, not memorial day. today is the 5th year anniversary of Ali's Art Adventures! i've been telling the universe about my art for 1,827 days. yay!

i was asked to paint a turkey wearing a hat. i could have make it a pilgrim hat. but that would be something you've seen before. now you've seen a turkey in a baseball hat. your welcome.

i was worried these guys would end up looking like dog heads with feet but they ended up turning out well. it's cool because the painting is super interested in looking back at the viewer. it's like i put a treat in your hand and these dogs are just thrilled to see what you're going to do with it.

i'm at my parents house because it's mother's day and when my mom saw this painting she pointed out that i missed some anatomy on the dog. sending animals through my cute-ify filter makes their heads bigger and their junk disappear.

the internet is telling me that george washington was a big fan of barbecue. i guess that explains why someone requested this. or maybe they sell bbq for one dollar. or perhaps they're opening a restaurant called "I Cannot Tell a Deep Fry: Presidential Quality Bar and Grill"

this painting got me wondering about the limit on the number of toasting enclosures in a single toaster. my google search for "largest number of slice toaster" revealed the answer is four. oh just kidding. i switched to images, scrolled down a bunch and found this six-slice beauty among a sea of inferior toasters. efficient toasting!

weird coincidence having two alien themed paintings back to back. i should have made them seem like a pair even though they went to different requesters. one pre-flight and one of the same ship and alien in the air. anyway, on to the making jokes. . .
this painting depicts the coolest part of the abduction. aaaalmost worth what comes next just to experience the beaming up part. almost.

a device for ensuring you have 3 drinking partners. except when you only fill up one shot at a time and use it to play a power hour. which is what one of the partiers at my last drinking game concert did. 'twas impressive. but sadly i have no photographic evidence of this. just a picture of me, my drummer and the shotski before the show started. followed by a picture of people using the shotski in the correct fashion.
