Arting for 365 Day 189: The Jetsons

11/3/12

Goal: To create one piece of art each day for 365 consecutive days

Perhaps it is the color combination juxtaposed to the geometric shapes, but for whatever reason, when I look at this little watercolor/ink piece, I am reminded of the Jetsons.

The Jetsons was  a cartoon I thoroughly enjoyed as a kid. I can’t say I loved it for it’s strong storyline – in fact I don’t’ recall one episode in particular. I do, however, clearly remember the opening scene and theme music. Meeting the Jetsons was a treat each and every time as saucer-mobiles flew families around and robot maids took care of your every whim. The show was retro and futuristic at once. A fabulous combination.
