Geisha Headphones by pinkbutterflyofdeath Geisha Headphones by pinkbutterflyofdeath
This is the first piece of my globalization concept art. I combined a traditional figure (a geisha) with something technological/media based (headphones)
It's meant to come off of the canvas about half an inch and over lap slightly on the smaller canvas. People say that globalization is making the world smaller and I wanted to indicate that with the smaller background making it feel enclosing. And the character on the headphones says "music".

Idk why, but this is my most favorite artwork that I've made <3

Hey ~ ! ^o^
I just found about your creation and I fell in love with your work ♥ I totally love this, it's kind of perfect !
I was searching for a "tattoo design" on the internet and just found this... I was searching something which gather both my passion for music and my passion for Japan. Soooo...Would you mind if I use it for my next (and first one) tattoo ? I will just change the kanji for "dream" and add some cherry blossom in her hair  (and maybe add a fan) TvT
I hope you'll agree !
See you !
(Sorry, english isn't my native language soo...xD)

Man, that article had a lot of really good art in it, feels like my picture doesn't belong with them. Or maybe I'm too used to seeing my stuff that I don't know if it's good or not XD

don't be silly, your stuff is gorgeous. I love the 'geisha headphones' piece because it's combining my two favorite things in the world, music (and its awesome technology) and the beauty of Japan (me: a Japan-o-phile)
(p.s. sorry i didn't re, i am working like a slave at a job...that will transfer me to Japan :D)
keep up the good work,pinkbutterflyofdeath :D

Haha,
I know a nice asian boy..I've known him since pre-schoo so that would be a little weird..

What about a South African?

:iconpinkbutterflyofdeath:
pinkbutterflyofdeath Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011   General Artist
Hmm South African? How exotic! Sure why not. Although I've only had one real boyfriend, and he's Chinese which is why I think Asian boys are the best XD
I also met him in 5th grade so I don't think it's weird to go out with friends from childhood.
