#946 “SEMPE in NEW YORK”〜I fell in love with the book〜

A book “SEMPE in NEW YORK”

Today I had a painting lesson. I’m learning to paint from a teacher once a month.Every time she brings some painting books and shows to me.

This time the book was “SEMPE IN NEW YORK ”.
SEMPE is a painter’s name. He is famous for painting the covers for the magazine “THE NEW YORKER”.You might have seen his work before. This book printed “THE NEW YORKER”’s covers from 1978 to 2009.
I fell in love with this book at first sight. Because, his paintings are very heart warming and cool. They also have a sense of humor. They are like scenes in our daily lives. A cat, boys, girls, a business man and musicians in New York are the main characters in the paintings.
I am sure you have seen at least one of the scenes before. As for me, there is one particular picture that reminds me of a sort of nostalgia.

I made a plastic board for the first time.

Then, I made a plastic board of SEMPE’s illustration. My painting teacher taught me how to make it. I used a toaster and it was easy and fun!
It is my homage to SEMPE.

Thank you my teacher! You always give me a good inspiration for painting.

↑A cat is sleeping on a bed. The view from window beside the bed, you can see people work hard at offices in buildings at night. It’s a funny contrast between a lazy cat and busy people.

猫、上手く描けてるね。^^
プラスティックが曲がっちゃってるのは、均等に熱が伝わらなかったのかな?
サンペさんの絵、たぶん見たことがあると思います。
ほんわかした絵だよね。
私もこんな絵が描けたらいいな。

初めてのプラ板作品だから、これで良しとする笑!猫のヌケ感がいいでしょw?
色が多少違って出来上がるのでそこも面白いところでした。
形がだいぶ小さくなるのもいいね。
私もこんな絵が描けたらいいなぁ。クスッと笑える絵が描きたいな。
