Digital Art Explosion, April ’19, Stage 4, Fan Art Casting Calls

*****

So, after my mind started thinking about two of my favorite female stars and how time is speeding away; it’s only a matter of time before another wave of heartache hits me and forces me to move on with my life.  But, certain forces say CARPE DIEM!  Don’t let your chance to convey those strong feelings of attraction and personal interest get away!

[Call me pathetic.  Call me what you will.  ~Green Day]

But, wave upon wave of anxiety hit.  And, with that…and a case of writer’s block…I started drifting like Buck Rogers into childhood fantasy…of cartoon beauties who turned a young, innocent Writingbolt into one horny little pre-teen.  This spiraled throughout my cartoon-viewing spectrum, including more recent “pinups” in its wake.

I started thinking about Jerrica Benton/Jem, Adora/She-Ra and the mid-90s Honey Kisaragi (who I’ve already turned into countless pieces of digital art in recent years…similar to a certain someone who’s been on my mind quite a lovesick bit, lately…hmm…).  [All blonde beauties…hmm.  Where might he be going with this?]

Let’s just get the ball rolling.

Wait.  Can we do something to improve the last one?  It needs a bit more “punch.”

Hmm.  That’s one saucy touch of innuendo.  But, it still needs something.  Okay, bring in the models.

That’s pretty good.  Nice Whispering Woods joke.  Now, can we take it one step further?  Bring in the other one.

And, I think that’ll do it.  Yep.  We’re good.  And, away we go down the Taylor Alison Swift rabbit hole…

[But first, a slight detour just to showcase an addition to my previous digital portrait project.  Just think of it like a pop-up ad in the middle of your obsessive binge-watching.]

Pretty awesome.  Right?  Okay, back to the Taylor Alison Swift Show….

…in the next post.  Prepare to be Taylor-struck, one more time.  I’ll try to curb my obsessive thinking just a bit.  [Don’t look in the closet.]

I’m going to say this right now and repeat myself, later.  If anyone has a good way/idea of how to contact Taylor Swift, I’d really appreciate being able to pass some of these…whatever we shall call them…and my rather personal thoughts onto her.  I doubt they serve any real purpose here with the limited audience I get/have; they just feel like obsessive thinking taking up space…though, I suppose, any creative output is cathartic and good practice.  [I see more odd websites LIKING my posts than actual visitors who actually have thoughts to share.]

I do not presently subscribe to much of any “social media” beyond this site.  I have had no reason to pay for a YouTube account or expand this blog to a more costly version other than the few videos I dare/care to share on rare occasion.  In this case, I have some compilations I’d like to deliver/show to Tay.  I have no big interest in pursuing LIKES or VIEWS.  I just need one viewer.  I’d like to make a phone call, not put my face on some NYC billboard for all to see.  [Though, when it comes to Tay, it seems everything ends up in the spotlight, anyway; doesn’t it?  ‘Poor rich girl.]

So, if you wish to assist, I can work with you via email, Skype, this blog or, possibly, by phone or snail mail.

The same goes for any other “celebrities” you may see on my blog in my personal tribute/wish posts.

Who Makes a Better Jerrica Benton?

***

Who makes a better Jerrica Benton, from the 1980s Jem cartoon, if she was converted into a better live-action movie figure than the poor attempt made a few years ago? Taylor Swift or her “bad blood” rival Katy Perry?

Isn’t it ironic those two would even suggest such a thing as bad blood between them? Which only emphasizes my question and thoughts on the matter.

Now, you take Tay Swift. She’s got the height. She’s got the grace. She’s got blonde hair, even if it’s not that pale, buttery blonde Jerrica sports. But, if I had to pick a singer to match up with Jerrica Benton, in terms of behavior and appearance, I’d favor Taylor Swift. Jerrica’s wardrobe/style suits Tay. And, you see how Tay likes to fly around the world doing good deeds, sort of like Jerrica always looking for some charity to support. [While Katy is better known for kissing just about every guy you’d think was unworthy of her.]

…Then you listen to some of Katy Perry’s songs on One of the Boys album. And, I kid you not; she sounds like Jem’s singing voice (which, if you didn’t know, was not the same voice used for Jem/Jerrica dialogue). Not to mention, some of the songs would rock a Jem movie soundtrack. I get little glimpses of the Jem cartoon opening blended with a sort of music video when I listen to Katy sing. And, if you look at the piece of photo-manipulation I recently made, you can see how Katy’s face matches up with the Jerrica doll box art; I didn’t have to do much to make a photo fit. [With a rare photo of Taylor Swift that was lit well enough to fit the cartoon image on the right, I still had to do some airbrushing and blending to make the two work together.] But…Katy is a bit moody and reckless, at times, which reminds me of Pizzazz from the Misfits. [Jerrica would never pierce her nose. But, Pizzazz might…and Katy has worn a–bleh.]

So, what I am thinking…is maybe Tay plays Jerrica/Jem, and Katy plays Pizzazz. Tay has the natural beauty, grace and gentle demeanor. But…Katy has the right vocals for Jem’s singing voice, can probably rock any makeup combo a Jem character requires and morph her whole appearance to match…

Urgh. What do you think?whomakesabetterjerrricabenton-taylorswift-or-katyperry-looks-versus-vocals_jem-photo-fusion-ap-CSPP-1
