Twilight Silhouettes

7:43 AM

Confession: I've seen all three Twilight movies.
I know a lot of the world can say the same thing, but since I'm pretty sure I'm the only one amongst my friends who's seen them...it makes me feel a little silly. I'm supposed to be a grown-up, right? Or at least on my way. Twilight seems like a step backward. But, all that being said, I do have one particular partner in crime that sees the Twilight movies with me, and now we've decided we have to see them all together. I think I look forward to our silly pact and late-night-sneaking-into-movie-theaters-hoping-no-one-will-see-us routine more than I look forward to seeing the actual movies. I'm pretty sure they're getting worse.

So anyway, despite my love for mocking Twilight and my self-deprication for seeing them, the Twilight gentlemen/monsters have become the subject of my latest art project. A friend recently showed me this blog about an art show by a designer named Olly Moss. It's amazing. Let me say right now:   Annie < Olly Moss. It's all silhouette profiles of characters from pop culture, and I love looking through them. I wish I could have the one of all the James Bonds! I think it's such a cool, simple idea and it made me want to try some of my own. But since I don't know how to cut silhouettes, I decided to draw them. I eventually scanned them in to Photoshop and made them look finished (above) but I think I'm still more fond of the drawn versions (below.) I chose the Twilight dudes because I thought they'd be easiest...I could spot that pouting, broody mouth of Edward Cullen from a mile away.

  1. I confess, I am also a Twilight junkie..... and a grown woman, a grandmother even, and a quilter, so while googling Twilight silhouettes I came across your page, wonderful job!
