I recently completed this large painting commissioned by a Chicago patron. Kritterland is an anthropomorphic spin on the famous Kiddieland amusement park sign which once stood in Melrose Park, Il.
This painting was right up my alley. I sketched some urban animals in the same poses as the children on the original sign. As with all my fauna, I was careful not to make them too cute. There’s a feral edge to all my animals. You can dress them up, but maybe don’t invite them inside!
Everything’s on fire, 20% of the population are keeping the rest of us inside, and there’s a federal election. This installment of My Pandemic Diary! might be a little cranky, but let’s just blame that on the humidity.
