My interpretation of Barbie inspired by David Lynch, Director of such movies as "Blue Velvet". His work is dreamlike and the idea of deformity is found in most of his films.

Here is David Lynch's ad promoting his new coffee line featuring Barbie. He a very ill man though brilliant. And this is why he is one of my favorite Directors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BSgM56SSJ0 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BSgM56SSJ0)

You sure coffee was all you were drinking? Kidding, that is great. It does look like she has an ice cream sundae on her head, though.:D

I watched a little of the ad - too bizarre for me.

Did you actually paint this with real brushes and real paint? or is it a computer image... it is so psychedelic, I feel quite stoned... so, I love it...

Awesome! Remember the initial series of "Twin Peaks"? Who killed Laura Palmer? My name is Laurie Palmer and got ribbed about that forever! Even from cashiers who had to process my credit card. Isabella Rossellini, who lived with him, said he had a seraphic mind because he had no filter. He also dislikes to the smell of food in his house and eats at diners. He favors milk shakes (I think vanilla).

When vacationing in Washington State I tracked down the diner where they filmed many scenes where Agent Cooper ordered his cherry pie. Of course, I ordered it. It sucked.

I'm a bit obsessive about him but not so much as my friend who picked up his family and moved to Main to live near Stephen King.

Real paint, real brushes but I did scan it to get a better blur and spiking of the pink on top right and bottom - going for feathery look. I also liked dispelling the stigma of "Perfect Barbie" I much prefer the "Barbie from Hell on Acid"

Ice cream sundae, yes! But the question is - What's in it?.... :twisted:
I think the ad is a riot but runs a bit too long.
