Early Birthday Present to T. Swift

*****

I cannot guarantee I will be available to do this on her special day (Thursday).  So, I am posting these, today.  Cooled off the presses, these are a few special portraits I composed, similar to my recently posted magazine (subscription) covers.

In recent years, I’ve been trying to make something special for her (every year).  And, this is my latest installment in that pursuit.

Enjoy.  And, Taylor Alison Swift?  A most happy and blessed birthday to you, you gorgeous and talented creature.

[There have been some slight modifications over the process of completing these.  So, you might notice small details that vary.]

 

The above are just two cards I previously made and posted that I am including to feature a photo (for comparison and respect).

How many ways might I describe her?  Let me count the ways.

I believe that adds up to 13.  Or, to put it more simply, she is just…

And, if all of this is a bit much for her or anyone viewing this posting, well, just avert your eyes or go find some sunglasses, I guess.  It comes from the heart, my creative heart.

Rattle and Hum, a Taylor-Made Gift Idea

*****

I’m getting you ready for the “holiday” otherwise known as Christmas with my own sure-to-be-a-commercial-hit gift idea, Rattle and Hum magazine, a personal creation composed relatively briskly on a whim.  Can’t get enough Taylor Swift?  Well, now you can purchase 12 months of Rattle and Hum and relish in our mixture of fantasy tales, recipes, costume parties, music, tips of all kinds and more.

Check out these cover designs for the 2019 subscription.   [Any repetition you notice is why this was created relatively quickly.]

2-RattleandHum-magazine-february-romance-caution-cover-taylorswift_ap-CSPP-11501400-14-4

Why Rattle and Hum?  Well, if you must know, it’s a blend of astrology, music and just the general feeling I have about what could be between her and I, if we put our heads together and made “beautiful music.”  🙂

So, who will be our first customer?

[Clever inclusions on the covers.  Right?  Tell me you notice these things.]

Taylor’d Treats for the Holidays

*****

Happy Halloween…or, just “Costume Day” as I tend to call it, in case Halloween bothers anyone with thoughts of dark practices, magic, etc.

For those who don’t yet know, I have a closet? fascination with the lovely Taylor Alison Swift which cannot adequately be explained; she simply exudes a certain aura which is both enchanting and occasionally concerning/bothersome (usually the latter when she’s seen with a guy I don’t care for and/or putting out another eerily bitter relationship-ish song).  But, ever since I first heard Love Story and learned of her writing something called The Monster in My Closet, I’ve been feeling this “tug” in her direction.  If she ever decides to commit to someone (other than myself), obviously, I’ll just have to box these feelings and move on (as I’ve been forced to do with other alluring stars and forces of humanitarian causes still honing their greatness…and some not doing much of anything great yet retaining perpetual, haunting beauty).

Now then…

In recent weeks, I’ve been crafting some “likenesses” of the graceful blonde songstress (when the muse strikes).  And, I’ll likely be sharing samplings of them here.  [I recently discovered a feature of my new PC art program which gave me some unexpected options that strangely had me seeing TS in them…and ran with the idea.]

As it is Halloween day, and at least one of the projects resulted in putting cat ears on her; I thought I’d try uploading a very brief video (or two).  Buuut, since I don’t have a “premium residence” here (and I don’t feel like paying in hopes of  a certain desired amount of attention only to get a certain amount of unwanted abuse and/or attention because I cannot control viewing), I guess that won’t be happening.  So…

Here are the short comics/stories told in stills (pictures).

And, here is a sampling of alternative stills related to this effort.  [But, you miss quite a bit of the fun I had with 3D video effects and music.  Oh well.]  As I looked at the image with cat ears, I thought about the “beckoning cat” (maneki-neko) story/stories and related images/concepts like Meowth from Pokémon; so I posed Tay like that cat but holding a teabag as well as beckoning someone to share a warm beverage with her.  Similarly, putting a RED bow on her head had me thinking about Alice in Wonderland; and, considering Tay’s middle name, it just clicked together.  Do you find the use of “windows” as amusing as I do?  [If that just went over your head, consult the computer screens in the gallery below.]

So, there’s just a taste of what my crazily crafting mind invented.  And, if anyone is interested in seeing the little video-comics, let me know (how to send them to you), especially the lovely Taylor Alison Swift, herself, if *you* happen to see this.

More to come.

Oh, heck.  Just one more, for now.

If she ever hosted a 70s-style talk show (ala Merv Griffin)…..

New Novel in the Works

*****

I’ve been commissioned to write a novel about my wondrous relationship with the lovely Taylor Swift.** It’s a love story. So, when I ask you to support me in my effort to get it published, just say yes. [Ha.]

It’s called *The Taylor and the Writingbolt.* But, my agent and one publisher said “Writingbolt” should be two words, like lightning bolt.

They also wondered why I misspelled “Tailor.” I told them it’s a little joke and that I’d work in how she fashions various things, like weaving compelling lyrics and grooming her image.

I was looking at this one picture of Taylor the other day, and it got me thinking of cover designs and an old love song.

TASwift-valentine-fluffyredheart-cloudybluesky-longcurlyhairphoto_ap-CSPP-2018-85x11-2J

So, I whipped up a few dozen variations of a theme. Let me know what you think of these samples. I think most of them are quite professional-looking and mildly amusing.

**Commissioned in my dreams. This is just me fantasizing about living with this fine young woman and having her help me write a glorious epic based upon our real relationship, sitting by a sunlit window overlooking lush greenery or a placid beach.

Obsessed?  Maybe.  But, definitely inspired.  It’s amazing what a lil infatuation will do.  Imagine what shared love would bring.  😀

Be Swift! The Day of Valentines Is Nigh!–er, Near!

*****

So, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  And, many of the good cards have already been plucked from their slots on those multi-layered display stands or shelving units.  But, fear not, there are a few gems left.  And, as a special bonus for the procrastinators, a collection of Taylor Swift notes for love/infatuation, loss/rejection of affection and words of caution to those you wish to protect or keep at a distance.

[Why Taylor Swift?  Well, it just so happens her birthday is Dec. 13th.  So, I thought why not whip these out on Feb. 13th?  I came upon this image of a biker babe who just happened to look a lot like her, too.  And, that’s what motivated me to create these.  Truth be told, whoever designed this biker babe went a little overboard with thinning her waistline.  That rib cage is dangerously depleted.  So, it’s not like I expect or think of Taylor or any woman so thin/emaciated.  I was merely drawn to the face and hair and came up with some clever use of the motorcycle.]

Warm Feelings

Cold Feelings

Cautionary Feelings/Advice

A few I just threw in because song lyrics came to mind when I pondered the image.  One is a Taylor Swift lyric.

And, a couple from a previous collection that fit this one.

**As an added bonus and/or special treat to Taylor (Alison) Swift and her fans, I have cooked up an amusing dictionary which I will be posting soon.  Look for it.**
