Ever since I first discovered Fringe, it has been one of my all time favorite TV shows. I just went back and started rewatching it from the beginning, and I am still enamored with its inherent charm.
One thing I am still intrigued by is how Anna Torv isn't a much bigger actress. She is immensely talented, yet still under appreciated. Every time I watch her play the Olivia/Fauxlivia dynamic, I am enthralled by how I wholeheartedly believe that they are two entirely different people. Even as Anna was playing the season 3 arc, with Fauxlivia pretending to be Olivia, and Olivia struggling with the assimilation of Fauxlivia's implanted memories - there is a subtle but undeniable distinction in her portrayals. Her nuanced performances for each stage of those 2 characters almost played out like they were 4 completely unique individuals.
I have yet to watch Orphan Black, but I am told that Tatiana Maslany pulls off a similar feat.
But I digress. As Fringe was still airing new episodes, I was always toying with ideas of different art projects I wanted to make. One of these days, I will eventually find the time to pay homage to that brilliant sci-fi series.
In the meantime, I've been vicariously enjoying (and envying) these deviations from other artists:
There are many more, but these are some of my favorites.
Alas, my own Fringe art project will be taking a back seat for now. I have dozens of ideas for different drawings or various other forms of artistic endeavors... At the forefront of all those ideas is one big personal project that I am extremely excited about, and it's going to be quite an undertaking.
It will be divided into 3 parts, with each part having 5 individual drawings, all paying homage to something that was a big aspect of my childhood. I won't spoil the reveal just yet, but here's a teaser courtesy of my phone (complete with horrible lighting, haha)
The first part of the project should be finished and uploaded by June or July.
