The Art of Kaihly Rae

Ah I’ve been running around and ignoring art in favor of having a social life for a short time! I’m a terrible artist, I know. But I have been working on a few things. These are from my latest thesis project - a french cabaret beauty and the beast~ Beauty is rather obvious, but I have been discussing the appearance of the beast with my teacher for sometime and I decided to go with this. Since a non-human beast was out of the question, seeing how he would be a little too fantastical to match my other thesis projects, I focused on the other interpretation of the beast. A deformity- the story says. Unfortunately my other thesis projects are on the glamorous side as well so doing something completely unsightly wasn’t going to work either. I ended up making him an albino since it is a physical abnormality with a certain horror-glamor of its own. The reaction I got was good! (though everyone says he resembles david bowie. It was completely unintentional, I swear. )

Now it’ll be back to revising my old projects and finishing this new one in the next two weeks. It’s going to be a lot of work.
