Part of The Peanut Gallery at the Nerdist showroom at Meltdown Comics & Collectibles featuring art from over 100 artists from around the world paying homage to Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts stories and characters!
Art inspired by Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts comic strip, television specials and films featuring Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang. As a child I always has a connection with Charlie Brown and I always enjoyed seeing Snoopy. Even as an adult, I appreciate the stories and the sacastic humor. People can connect to the stories most likley because of the philosophical, psychological, and sociological overtones.
My piece is a reflection of the innocence and joy that Peanuts gang had and is a reminder of the different parts of my childhood. Within the art are different references to various characters and events, some more obvious than others. For example, the fingerprint is a nod to the character Pig Pen, while the red Christmas ornament is a reminder that some trees aren't that "...bad at all really."
There's a part of the artwork that the attendees at the gallery didn't get to see see ;) ...
