Happy Kali's 200th!




No, she's not 200 years old, but she has now made 200 posts of fun cartoons, doodles, paintings and wacky stuff in general.

Go take a gander. Maybe you can get her to sell off some of her precious cartoony pictures.

They range from the super girly to the just plain silly, to the
baby room -cute to the
..wackyto the monstrously inventive

to her shamelessy degrading caricatures

Where does she get all the goofy ideas from? Probably the bizarre company she keeps...



I gotta say, that is some range of styles and imagination. The girl never seems to run out of new shapes.Yikes! Nightmare time!

Cute relief...http://kalikazoo.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2008-10-24T00%3A27%3A00-07%3A00&max-results=10

Yes, everyone should buy things from Kali!

I tell you, owning something by Kali is like discovering the reasons to life and meaning all at once. God only wishes he knew the secrets pressed into each of her works!

Wow, that is some inspiring stuff! I'm gonna add it to my blog favorites right away! ( or at least follow it I guess)

Where did YOU learn all your skills at? Would you say you are a well rounded artist specializing in zany cartooning?

are you asking me or Kali?

Hey Kali, is that pyramid head from the Silent Hill video games and movies in that one picture?

Alberto said...

Very nice stuff Kali's. Maybe she gets shapes from anime... I'm with smirkstudios, where did you both learned those skills? I read you John went to Sheridan but didn't finish.
Are you mostly self-taught?

Lucas Nine said...

Wonderful artwork. Just be careful...
Did you see “A star is born”?

smirkstudios said...

Yes, John, I was asking you. LOL

Sorry to not specify!

Kali is one in a billion, and here I am working my ass off just trying to be one in a thousand. This is the kind of talent you simply cannot fake.

I don't want to live in a world where you can be that awesome, and still have rappers and hacks in general make way more money than you!

Bwahahah! Good lord, that is some classic Norman Rock-Rock family table shot, there, Johnny! Those must be the Fontecchio mere et pere? That is just great.

Congratulations to Kali for 200 fun and bright eyed postings. She's always got something interesting to show--even if it's the 50 thousandth version of this "Wade" guy, it's always neato. I love her taste in films(probably because I share it), and she has a lot of moxie. I still have to frame my beautiful Kali original I snagged some months ago, but let me broadcast:
It's even better in person! I'm lucky to have it. Heck, the drawing she sent along(she would call it a "doodle")was as good as the painting.
She's tops.

Now I'm reading the comments before my last and wanted to add:

Talent isn't magic-it's in fact usually overrated. Kali works really, really HARD. It's plain to a longtime reader of her blog-which all of you guys should be. : )
I am sometimes moved to comment "Wow! What a leap forward!" or some such but I'm afraid on paper(so to speak) that it sounds annoyingly backhanded and patronizing, and I don't mean it that way at all. I know in person I could say it clearly, I think.
Anyway, I just said it here. But to the point again: although a girl like this went to art school(Otis), she's done as much and probably a lot more on her own, constantly studying and drawing everything from her friends to the toys she collects and learning from other artists' stuff. It's all there at her blog.

Great job, Kali!

Your progress over the years has been fun to keep track of. Keeps me, and hopefully everyone else, practicing to catch up.

Two customer reviews, both of overwhelming satisfaction! If that doesn't compel everyone to buy a piece of Kali, what will?

Shoulda done a drawing of a vandal taking handles.

Wilson Ramires said...

Wow,very cool stuff, the monstrously inventive my fAv"

Jorge Garrido said...

You know what? I didn't notice it at the time, but that drawing she did of the "Happy Go Lucky" girl is one of the greatest portraits drawings I've ever seen in my life. The colour, the line, the expression, the shapes... of all of a sudden I've noticed how good it is...

How does she do it?

Kali Fontecchio said...

OMG SHEMP
