12x30: A+ STUDENT

Today I thought it'd be fun to join in the Style Imitating Art challenge, this week being hosted by one of my fave bloggers and all-around cool chicks, Jess of Animated Cardigan.

The inspiration for this edition of SIA is Roller Rat by Banksy:

Now, I'd never heard of Bansky until I arrived at art school, and even then, my knowledge of current artists is still growing. Speaking of which, I should probably take that Theories of Contemporary Art course..

Anyway, one thing I have learned so far in art school is color theory and that purple and yellow are complementary. Like, who doesn't love the color wheel? Add in some black, gray, and polka dots, and you've got yourself one heck of a Banksy-inspired outfit, amirite?

Also learned in art school? Don't take yourself too seriously. I think I get an A in that, y'all.


PS: Make sure to check out Jess and Sarah's blogs for their 30x30 remixes, too! :D

  4. That painting put a smile on my face and so did your outfit! Your color mixin' & matchin' is so fun. And how fab are you wearing red lipstick?!
