Happy Halloween! I saved the best - well, gloriest - for last! I conclude my series, A Gaga A Day with Meat Dress Gaga and Bloody Gaga, both inspired by her appearance and performance at the 2010 MTV VMA's.

|Lady Gaga No. 9 - Muppet Gaga|
It's not easy being green...it's also not easy to illustrate about 15+ stuffed Kermits - but I did it! :)
A Gaga A Day continues with a new illustration tomorrow. You can view past Gagas here.

|Lady Gaga No. 6 - Jo Calderone|
I actually drew this picture a while back for an Illustration Friday challenge. I felt it was only appropriate to include Jo in this series as well.
A Gaga A Day will continue next week, in the meantime, feel free to view past Gagas here.
Have a great weekend!!!!!

|Lady Gaga No. 5 - Fairy Orbit Gaga|
I'm back from my burnout! No more half-ass illustrations anymore, promise! This illustration was inspired by the out fit Gaga wore at the 2010 Grammy Awards.
You can view my previous Gaga's here...
Earlier this year, I had the delightful opportunity of meeting fellow designer Jessica Swift at the Surtex show. She an extremely talented artist and incredibly down to earth. While shopping for a new iPhone last week, I was very happy to come across some of her designs at AT&T. I love my new case! She's coming out with a line of Rain Boots real soon - hopefully I can get a paint to match!

Hey, guys! Remember when Lady Gaga arrived at the Grammy's in a egg? Well I drew it!
...ok this one's a bit of a cop-out but I'm really really tired today. However, I did make a commitment to a A Gaga A Day ...and A Gaga A Day is what you're gonna get! Consider this an in-between piece while I take a mental health break today to get my creative juices flowing again....

|Lady Gaga No. 2 - Rotating Contraption Gaga|

|Lady Gaga No. 1 - Hair Bow Gaga|
It's time for another series of illustrations by yours truly!
Earlier this year, in celebration of Black History Month, I did a series dedicated to divas. I had a lot of fun playing around with the subject matter and realized that, well, divas are my thing! I've always wanted to draw Lady Gaga, especially for Celebrity of the Month. And after illustrating her as Jo Calderone, I quickly realized that there are so many more Gagas to illustrate!
And that's how A Gaga A Day was Born This Way...
What better way to countdown the days to Halloween than with the Queen of Costumes herself! For the next couple of weeks, I plan to unveil a new illustration, depicting Gaga wearing some of my personal favorites.
Today, I'm kicking off the series with a classic - The Hair Bow Gaga. I hope you enjoy it - be sure to check back tomorrow for another one!
