On Monday morning, I'll be releasing the first full installment of Clementoons animation, an episode called "Troubles with Bubbles."
The video features Clement's encounter with a dancer named Bubbles LaRue. She's ten times Clement's size, and she's the most beautiful and dangerous female in Melville, the world of cartoon people. I created this poster as a prop for the production. It's painted in casein on illustration board.
I based the style of the poster on the classic posters of the Moulin Rouge, with their fabulous swooping lettering, bright colors, and sense of excitement.
She is a treasure of Mel Birnkrant's collection of comic character toys and puppets.
