For this week’s edition of Yesterday, I painted an old-fashioned diner with an elderly snail enjoying some bacon and eggs, inspired by @slimetownusa on TikTok. As shown through the window, the newspaper, and the TV, there’s some trouble in the Snail Diner. While I wanted to make a cute painting, I also wanted to connect the 50s-style diner with the Cold War era going on at the time, in which there was a large nuclear war scare. The significance of the diner patron being a snail is up for interpretation!
hey! i'm dai, a CS sophomore looking to (hopefully) double minor in APIA studies and Art and Design. i'm a mainly digital artist who loves color and wants to improve and expand on my coloring abilities. in my current series “Chroma”, i'll generate a new color palette each week using a randomized color palette generator, and then create an illustration based off it. along the way, i hope to capture the creative process of my art, as well as the different gradients of life. enjoy!
