The Birth of Frida by Sabtastic The Birth of Frida by Sabtastic
A parody of "THE BIRTH OF VENUS" by Sandro Botticelli.
Ain't she purdy? hahaha

I'm studying second-year Art History in college this semester, and it's extremely boring, so this was the horrible, horrible result of my being bored. Figured I should scar some of you for life, just for the shits and giggles. >;D

The lovely face that you see here is that of Frida Kahlo, a famous European/Mexican painter who was known almost as much for her caterpillar unibrow as she is for her artwork.



Happy new year!!

~pickletoez's freaky ESP Story:
because wants me to post it: lol

I woke up one day and Mel wandered into my room, like she always does. We started yammering on about random things, like we usually do, and eventually the topic deviated onto the weird dreams we had the preceeding night. Mine was odd, and I can't recall it completely, but I remember that in my dream I was trying to navigate my way through some weird theme park, and there was a very ugly-looking painter lady chasing after me.
Beginning to describe my dream to Mel, and right about when I got to the part about the "ugly painter", Mel chimed:

"WAS IT FRIDA KAHLO?!", cutting me off.

... The scary thing is, it WAS Frida Kahlo. So after a full minute of dumbstruck silence, I said, "YES HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT?!"

Lucky Guess, and true story. I kid you not.

I don't harbor any ill feeling towards you, this is a great blending of motifs here. I just have issues with peoples crude comments about Frida. I won't go into one of my usual elongated rants, but I will say this. Frida lived a life of literally painful suffering and betrayal. The only things that she felt she had control over was her talents as an artist and her appearance. She intentionally made herself unattractive so people would stop two-facing her, especially her husband Diego. Anyway my all time favorite work of hers is "Diego in my thoughts". [link]

Yeah, I saw it on NG first when you updated your news. I commented on DA because I figured I'd add it to the "sabstastic" folder in my faves. Congrats you've become one of the NG League by committing your first "gross-out" trick.

Thanks Vana!!
They've always been favourites of mine too. My mom's got a mini statuette of Venus in her room, so i've known -of- the Venus motif since I was a baby.

Glad you like it so much!!
..Some of the comments i've been getting on Newgrounds are really making me laugh though. I tried to lure the teenage guys in with the words "bare boobie", in a frontpage journal entry, and it totally worked. They were in for quite the surprise, however, when they actually saw it. :XD:

Sorry. I have a feeling that i'll feel like a gigantic ass once we finally discuss Frida as an individual artist in class. I've heard vaguely about her life, but really all I've learned about her so far is from glancing at her artwork.

It wasn't my intent to offend you, though, so I hope it's not too bad. s:
