An Apple a Day… – Day 350

apple pez Here is my Apple pez character. This piece had the general concept of the apple from the garden of Eden bible story. I’m not sure why, but i often use religious parallels within my work, but I’m not a very religious person. Any way, i also felt like this was the apple that fell on Newtons head (or so the story goes). I’m not trying to retell either story, i just feel those ideas when i look at the piece. I used a stencil on the piece and colored it in pencil and colored pencil. My favorite part is the pencil stencil (say that fast) within the dispenser handle. I just love the texture of that portion. I love the slight shade difference, subtle but effective. I like this piece. It’s one that i enjoy, but far from a top 10.
