Watch Arcadia-based artist, Lush Newton, do a silent film style quickdraw of a Gothtober greeting for day 25! Lush lives up north where it gets quite chilly. She carries index cards in her pockets at all times in case she’s got to jot down an idea or a sketch. She wears overalls, and takes no guff.
She can make a giant polka-dot pony that blows bubbles out of it’s keister, and in fact, this contraption lives in her town and leads its own parades. She can make a sculpture of a ham out of just about any materials you give her.
She is originally from Missouri, and lists some of her influences, inspiration and tools as: Hee Haw, fresh cut hay, Johnny Cash, Zorro, Rankin Bass, True Grit, Wonder Woman, E6000, Wylie E. Coyote, Little Debbie, #2 Dixon Ticonderoga, Mickey, Hot Glue, Harold and the Purple Crayon, Egon Schiele, Etta James, Ethel Merman, and Thomas Hart Benton.
I mean… she listed way more than that, but this is just a sliver of information.
