Fan Art Fridays: Olly Alexander

Years & Years put out a new album today called Palo Santo, and I’m really loving it!

My faves on the album are “Hallelujah”, “Rendezvous”, and “Karma”, which happen to be the more upbeat tunes on the track list. I’ve always loved the ballad-y songs from Years & Years, but this time around I’m digging the danceable melodies.

In celebration of Palo Santo, I’ve decided to feature this fun fan art of lead singer Olly Alexander for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. The watercolor piece is by Viva (@artisqueer) on Instagram. I absolutely love the flower crown look on him. He’s totally working it!

Fan Art Fridays: Ode to Prince Harry (& Meghan Markle)

I’ve thought long and hard about making this a full on #TWBT post yesterday, but I decided to make this one short and sweet on this lovely Fan Art Fridays blog instead:

Prince Harry of Wales, take care of your Princess.

As a fellow multicultural woman, I’m very pleased with your pick, Meghan Markle. She’s educated, poised, and absolutely stunning. I, and I’m sure many others, were concerned you’d choose to marry the craziest British woman you could find across the pond, but boy am I happy you went for Meghan.

Although Meghan pretty much has to hide her outspoken qualities as the future Duchess (CANNOT WAIT TO WATCH THE WEDDING FROM NYC ON TV TOMORROW, BTW), I hope you always remember to ask for her opinion when you two are behind closed doors. Don’t let a brilliant female mind like Meghan’s go to waste. Let her have influence on your decisions.

And yeah, I know divorce isn’t a thing in the royal world, so please be a good husband. We don’t need a scandal, Harry. I’m serious. TREAT HER RIGHT.

And Meghan, I’ll be watching you strut your fancy self down the aisle in your wedding dress tomorrow morning, representing all the Americans that are obsessed with England and the royals in general.

P.S. Please consider buying property in California. Finish what Princess Diana was trying to start up in Malibu!

Best wishes to Harry and Meghan ❤

Enjoy this amazing fan art of the two by Amro Ashry (artistamroashry) on DeviantArt. I’m considering having it framed.

Also, I highly recommend watching the two documentaries The Real Princess Diaries: From Diana to Meghan (E!) and Meghan Markle: An American Princess (FOX) and if you haven’t already. They’re both phenomenal.

Fan Art Fridays: Ike Barinholtz

The film Blockers is out in theaters this weekend, and I’m seriously considering going to see it in theaters because I’m not sure I can wait until this hilariousness is available on DVD!

I saw the trailer for the film when I went to watch Pitch Perfect 3 in theaters in December 2017. I laughed so hard at Ike Barinholtz (who plays Hunter in the film) because, well, he’s Ike Barinholtz.

Ever since knowing Ike Barinholtz as Morgan Tookers on The Mindy Project, I’ve realized this guy is a total and complete goofball. He’s so ridiculous it’s insane.

In honor of the crazy man that is Ike Barinholtz, I’ve decided to feature this sketch of the actor/comedian I found on Deviant Art by Peter Ono (Uptighturbanite). It features him as Nurse Morgan Tookers making a face that basically sums up his insanity.

Fan Art Fridays: Chloe x Halle

Okay, I know I’m a little late with this, but my ears just got around to finishing Chloe x Halle’s new album, which was very well orchestrated, IMO.

Titled The Kids Are Alright, the album features a great mix of R&B, pop, and trap. It’s been a while since I’ve thoroughly enjoyed an entire album that’s rooted heavily in R&B, so I give these sisters kudos.

I’m not even going to lie, there were times I zoned out at work while listening to some of these tracks and thought I was listening to Beyoncé. It makes sense, as Beyoncé was an influence for the album and the girls are signed to her label Parkwood Entertainment.

Here are my fave tracks from The Kids Are Alright:

“Down” – I swear this was in an episode of grown-ish (which both Chloe x Halle star in and are amazing on, btw) and I went nuts trying to find this song online but couldn’t because it wasn’t officially released yet. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME THAT THIS IS THE SONG. I may never know.

 “Happy Without Me” – I love the way the girls voices sound so comforting and sisterly together as they sing the word “me.” I think it really ties up the sad nature of the situation described in the song and makes the ending seem optimistic, as it should.

“Galaxy” – I almost feel kind of bad for this guy they’re sending into the galaxy because of the jungle beat. Like, is this some sort of Jurassic Park galaxy? Will he survive? Do we want him to?

Enjoy this fun fan art I found on Instagram of Chloe x Halle by ghostnovas, inspired by an image of the sisters with their hair tied together. The sisters posted it on their Instagram account in 2016. The cartoon version of Halle Bailey looks super realistic!

Fan Art Fridays: Oprah

It’s finally March, so you know what that means?

WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH IS HERE!

To celebrate all the lovely women in the world, all of March’s Fan Art Fridays will feature fan art of famous women. First up is the one and only Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah’s been floating in my mind this week after I read an article about a Starbucks barista that didn’t know who she was and asked how to spell her name on the cup.

I can’t even. Like, even without looking at Oprah’s face I’d know who she was just by her distinct voice!

Anyway, enjoy this phenomenal photo collage fan art of Oprah by Natu Zeta that I found on Instagram. I still haven’t fully understood how these photo collage art pieces work, but that doesn’t make them any less cool!

Fan Art Fridays: Rachel McAdams

Our favorite Canadian drama actress, Rachel McAdams, is pregnant with her first child!

News of the broke pregnancy on Thursday, and I am so happy for her!

As most probably do, I’ve loved pretty much loved every film I’ve seen starring Rachel McAdams. I think my favorite film she’s starred in would have to be The Time Traveler’s Wife, in which she played Clare Abshire alongside Eric Bana’s character Henry DeTamble.

In light of this baby news, I’ve decided to feature some fan art I found of the actress on Deviant Art by k-dezign. It appears to be inspired by a still of her character Kay Nesbitt in the film Married Life, which takes place in 1949.

I think this black and white sketch captures her essence perfectly. K-design definitely got her on her good side!

See the original fan art here, and check out some more of k-dezign’s sketches of celebs!

Fan Art Fridays: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’

zipcy fifty shades fan art ana and christian grey

The last installment of the Fifty Shades series came out in theaters this weekend, basically revving up everyone’s Valentine’s Day yet again.

Although I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, I have read the trilogy and fully intend to read Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey As Told by Christian sometime this year.

I’m pretty sure the film adaptation is very racy (it would be a waste if it weren’t, right?) and I kind of don’t want to watch them alone so I’m still waiting for the perfect moment to watch them.

Zipcy, an illustrator I recently found on Instagram posted some fan art of the film this morning, so I couldn’t resist featuring it on this week’s Fan Art Fridays. Inspired by the official movie poster for Fifty Shades Freed, the fan art features Ana and Christian Grey getting ready to do something hella raunchy!

I love how Zipcy turned this black and white grey poster into full color. It totally gives the image life, especially with the added the flowers in the right corner.

View the original fan art here, and watch the trailer for Fifty Shades Freed below.
