Seems like a lot of the 80's is getting a re-birth lately. Child of the 80's that I am, gotta love that, but while Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Bright, My Little Pony, She-ra, and even Gem have started popping back up, one of my favorites I remember from kindergarten, Rose Petal Place has yet to turn back up.
Looking back now, it was probably the earliest exposure I had to anything that was more related to art nouveau or at least something like it. The basic story as I remember it was that there was a little girl who loved her garden, but had to move. When she left, she visited her garden one last time and her tears fell on the flowers, turning to magical crystals and bringing them to life. Ok, it wasn't Shakespeare, but I was what, 4? That's high drama for that age
In any case, who knows, it may have had an influence on why I like art nouveau so much, maybe not, but felt like it was time it got a little tribute Media: lineart-colerase brown on dura-lene, painting done in Photoshop and Painter.
