2017 is here, 2016 is officially history! It seems like 2016 was here just yesterday... well, actually it was, but you know what I mean. I can't speak for anybody but myself when I say this, but 2016 was a good year for me, in terms of my artwork. It was a good year all around for me (in contrast to how bad it was for pop culture and also for people I know personally), but it was ground breaking regarding my work. I should use that topic for my blog tomorrow, and as a matter I fact I will. In case you're wondering where to find my blog, just visit: www.popeyewong.com/blog.html.
Anyway, let's talk about artwork. I am back after a quick hiatus, where I took time off to visit family and friends. It was totally worth it and re-energizing. Now that I'm back it's time to get back in track and get down to business So, I decided to start the 2017 with a bang and bring a new image commemorating this holiday. For this new pin-up, the reference model is the amazing Brazilian performer and friend of mine, Fascinatrix (Karina). I haven't collaborated with her in a long time now, and it makes me really happy to feature her again. This image is really symbolic, because not only keeps the style that I've been using on my artwork lately, but also keeps on the path of doing holiday images with models that have been a huge milestone, when it comes to my art. The holiday images for the second half of 2016 featured models that really made an impact on my artwork. These are models that have become part of my life. Fascinatrix (Karina) is definitely in that list, and I am proud to be able to call her friend. Thank you, Karina, for such an incredible support towards my artwork, and for bringing so much inspiration. Keep on dancing, my friend!
