“I’LL SEE YOU IN THE NIGHTOSPHERE YOU SICK FREAK” - by Cameron Garland of cameron+whitney
Adventure Time fanart piece hand-drawn, hand-painted, and hand-cut by me (Cameron Garland), entirely with paper.
It is unfortunately not for sale…..yet. The big news is that I’ll be attempting to get a table with a friend at Emerald City Comic Con ‘14 next March!!! And well, since it’ll be my first time exhibiting my junk at a con, I’d like to make a good impression and have a full body of work to show off…….so piece #1 down, 5 more to go!
This is piece #2 in my “items” series (click the picture below or click HERE for piece #1 “IT’S DANGEROUS TO GO ALONE, TAKE THESE!” featuring the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
I’ve been showing pictures of the finished piece to family and friends and their response is usually along the lines of “oh good job Cameron that’s really awesome” while patting my head in a somewhat condescending manner…..and then I show them the piece in person and when they realize the actual scale of the whole thing, they say “ oh what do you have th-HOLY SHIIIIIIIT!!! IIIIEEEEEEE!!!!” which is then usually followed by this:
Anyways, here are some behind the scenes/scale pictures for you to enjoy…..and if you haven’t seen the finished piece yet, click the picture below or click HERE to see it!
Thank you to everyone for your overwhelmingly wonderful feedback and for following! Much more to come!!!!!
Here are a few scale pics of some of the individual items for your viewing pleasure. This was by far the most difficult piece I’ve worked on…….curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, curves and symmetry, DAMN CURVES AND SYMMETRY!!!!!!!!!!I had to do a good handful of these multiple times just because something wasn’t quite symmetrical or there was a slight dip or bump in a curve. BUT, in the end, I think it came out great and I learned a whole lot as well due to how challenging and different it was.
*a fun tidbit: out of all the items I’ve done, on average, a single item will have about 30-40 individually cut pieces, but the Moon Power Tiare had 125+ individually drawn and cut pieces………….it was a nightmare.
I’ll be opening a Storenvy soon with a few limited edition prints that are hand-embellished and some small paper pieces like this tiny Master Sword and Hylian Shield from The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds that you’ll be able to choose what level/color Master Sword you’d like. I’ll be sure to announce when it’s open on my Instagram (@campluswhit) and right here on tumblr. Keep your eyes peeled!
In case y'all missed it on my Instagram (@campluswhit), here are a couple of other small pieces I had with me at ECCC last weekend. These guys went fast at the con! I was a bit sad a lot of people didn’t get to see them in person, but happy they sold and found good homes! I’ll be doing a bunch of commissions in frames this size starting up in a bit, so keep your eyes peeled for that post!
So despite nearly cutting my thumb off with my x-acto knife last month, piece #3 in my items series is well underway! If you haven’t guessed that it’s Sailor Moon yet, then I’ll help you out: it’s a Sailor Moon piece! Lots of symmetry so far which is not very fun at all and getting a crystalline effect isn’t exactly my favorite thing to do either since it weakens the paper a bit, but so far so good! More items to come!
In other news, I’m really really REEEAAAAALLLLLYYY starting to hate my day job and contemplating giving the full-time freelance thing a try again, beginning with taking some small commissions. Would anyone be interested in that???
One of my favorite backgrounds from Adventure Time (as seen in the Fionna and Cake episode), originally done by Ghostshrimp, Santino Lascano, Martin Ansolabehere, Sandra Calleros, and Ron Russell. Thought it would look even better in 3-D and with a tiny Beemo.
Here’s a preview of my Dooks of Doom piece for Splendidly Evil: Powerpuff Girls Villains Zine! I still can’t believe I get to be part of this, there are so many great artists and just overall good peoples contributing! And it gets even better, because the proceeds from the zine will be donated to DonorsChoose.org, supporting classroom literacy and projects! Woo!!!!
One of my first original pieces! I’m so proud of this one! You may have seen this floating around the internets and it looks like the wind in the Friend-Ship’s sails have lead you to it’s creator…..ME! Here’s the original post from my blogger bloggity blog if you’d like to see more of it, aiiiiiight:
Here’s a little behind the scenes look of the otter pieces I did. Link’s keys are to give you some idea of the scale of everything else…..nothing terribly tiny this time around, but still pretty small. The otter that I had the most difficulty with was by far the Metroid one. SO MANY LAYERS ON THAT DAMN HELMET, but I was very happy with how it came out!
This is a tiny piece I did for Whitney’s mom as a gift for Mother’s Day yesterday, in loving memory of a wonderful little lady named Ivy, who recently left us. I only knew Ivy for about 4-5 short years, but I made sure to show her how much I loved her every time I saw her. The year I spent working from home would’ve drove me to madness if not for her, as she always kept me company and every day would let me know when it was time to take a break (which coincidentally was also when she needed to go poop). What I’ll always remember and look fondly on is how she always had a smile on her face and the many days we lounged on the bed for 7-9 straight hours watching cartoons until someone came home from work. We love and miss you little Ivy!!!!
