i’m jealous of charmaine olivia


Ok. I’m just going to say it. I want to be friends with San Francisco based artist Charmaine Olivia. Her artwork is amazing, and from what I can tell from both her work and her blog… she’s hilarious! Here’s the evidence:

1. A deer in gym socks {come on, it’s just funny}

2. ‘What do you mean what do I mean’ {enough said}

3. And finally, the third piece. So beautifully painted, with so much deep, inward expression on the subject’s face… and it’s titled ‘I should really wash my hair’.  {pure gold!}

I know… and now you want to be her friend too. Well, get in line.

    The deer in socks is perfection. I love the detail of the dots over the antler and deer booty. Yeah, I said deer booty.

    ha ha! i am such an art geek and always want to be friends with artists but then get all star struck and nerdy if I ever actually meet them.

    I love the deer. And the bear hair! amazing.

    this is so sweet! i’m charmaine’s best friend; we’ve been attached at the hip since we were six years old. trust me, she’s the sweetest person, and she’d love to talk to anyone.

    Charmaine is absolutely my favorite artists working right now! I am addicted to her blog and seeing what she will come up with new every day. Some of her work is quirky like you see here, but other pieces are just simply beautiful. There is one piece of a girl with a boat in her hair that i just find stunning!
