If you live in Los Angeles, you may or may not recognize the locations in these paintings.

Art from our main page today. "100 Not So Famous Views of L.A." by Barbara A. Thomason

According to the artist, “This series of paintings began in late 2007 and was completed in early 2011.  There are actually 107 paintings.

The mid-nineteenth century Japanese Ukiyo-e artist Hiroshige’s  “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” inspired this body of work.  The compositions I choose incorporated the vertical oban format, roughly 14”x 9” and the technique of bokashi or color gradations that are hallmarks of Ukiyo-e woodcuts.

I executed these works in cel vinyl paint because it resembles woodblock ink in texture and tone.  The paintings are not of well-known views of Los Angeles but are more intimate and quirky.  The pieces are informed by the color, compositions and tonal changes of Hiroshige’s works.

My objective was to pay homage to both Los Angeles and Hiroshige’s wonderful prints. “

What happened, my dear Zero, is I beat the living shit out of a sniveling little runt called Pinky Bandinski, who had the gall to question my virility. Because, if there’s one thing we’ve learned from penny dreadfuls, it’s that when you find yourself in a place like this, you must never be a candy ass; you’ve got to prove yourself from day one.

CAROL CORPS CALIFORNIA CONTINGENT! 
Heads up, y’all — 
You know about the Disney Avengers Half Marathon Weekend, yeah?  It’s November 14th - 16th at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA.  The DeFraction clan will be there — the whole family is going to walk the 5k and Fraction and I will be doing the Half. (Er… Fraction will be running the half.  I will be dragging my sorry butt along and wishing I’d been better about my training.) We’re also planning an Anaheim signing the Wednesday before the event! 
WELL.  ANYWAY.  
Disney reached out to us — they’re looking for uniformed Carol Corps volunteers to cheer along the route. I think it’s going to be crazy fun and a really spectacular way to meet fellow corpsmen. And if that’s not enough, in exchange for your service, each individual will receive a complimentary park hopper ticket if they register and participate, so that’s an incentive as well! 
Kelly Sue, what do they mean by “uniformed”?
I’m so glad you asked!  They’re looking for cosplayers, primarily.  (Doesn’t have to be Carol — Kamala, Spider-Woman, Clint, Kate… anybody who’s a part of our world would work. Non-traditional cosplay would work as well, I think — I’m thinking about some of the spectacular Captain Marvel dresses I’ve seen.)
Wah! I’m not a cosplayer, but I want to help!

Do not despair!  I asked if they’d consider non-cosplayers and I told them about our CC shirts.  The response came back that cosplayers would be preferred, but if you have this Carol Corps shirt, you could consider it your uniform and you’d be welcome to apply as well.  
What do you mean by “apply,” Kelly Sue? Is there paperwork involved? 
Not paperwork per se, but there will be a registration website going live in a couple of weeks. Everyone who registers will need to submit a photo of themselves wearing their costume (or their t-shirt!) so that Disney can do their best to screen for “potentially inappropriate clothing” — their words, not mine.  I don’t foresee any problems for us, though…?  
Anyway, if you choose to apply, here’s what they’ll ask for:
NameEmail AddressPhone NumberAddressClub or Group (if applicable) THIS IS WHERE YOU WRITE “CAROL CORPS” Marvel Character Portrayed: (If you’re not a cosplayer, but you have the t-shirt, just put CAROL CORPS MEMBER here)
Nicole Campos has volunteered to help co-ordinate volunteers, so stay tuned for an introduction to her too. 
Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll do my best to get answers.  The site won’t be up for another week or two, but we’re getting the word out now so folks have time to plan/pull together costumes.  
Cool? Cool. See you there.

I wanna gooooo! Gotta figure out what to wear…I’ve never actually cosplayed before, which is weird, since I’m never one to turn down a themed/costume party. I think it’s time!
