Hey there, Art Lovers! This month at the HotPixel Post-Production blog, we’ve started our Artist Spotlight series, where we periodically focus on the work of a talented artist whose work we love, and whom we think could bring their talents to an indie film production in various capacities – from art direction to marketing. February has been devoted to the work of LA artist, Barbie Brady, whose Drunk Bunnies have come to visit the HotPixel logo this month. This week, I posted an interview I did with her, where she discusses her work and what inspires it.
But for the past few years, she’s been focusing exclusively on creating and showing her art, most recently at a show with RAW Artists earlier this month. She works in various mediums, and much of her work incorporates personal ephemera – toy instructions, old bingo cards, Polish family bibles. She often spends hours “making paper,” selecting sections for use in her projects. “I love giving things a second life,” Brady says. “And I love [that] these are things from my life: my journal pages, my instructions from my toys. They’re not random things, and I think that adds an element of integrity to what I do.”
In fact, when she did the HotPixel logo this month, she insisted on incorporating technical specs that we actually use to create her bunny vision of our logo, preserving the integrity of the work she did for us.
So, we know what the ephemera says…but what do the bunnies say?
“They say: I love bunnies and I love drinking,” she jokes. But then she tells me about the real reason drunk bunnies are so important to her.
