Blork and Tamela
When I lived in Chicago, I worked a lot of odd jobs in the Theatre scene while I attended college and also studied improv and comedy at Second City. One of which was with Bootstraps Comedy Theatre for their production of "Hello Human Female" written by Matt Lyle. His wife, Kim ran sound and music while I ran lights- huddled close in a high loft in the back of a small storefront theatre. I really fell in love with the characters of the play, Blork and Tamela. So when they commissioned me to do a painting of the two strange-lings for their newborn baby's nursery, I was floored! I chose the part where they fell in love and Blork ate Tamela's hair because he liked it. Seriously, I love this play.
