This is a super freaky cool video about Disney animatronics!!
Disney, Disney, Disney.
When I think of design, logistics, story, I think Disney.
I totally love love love Disney. I could be one of those Disney super fans...but I do my best to let go of stuff instead of collecting more, lol.
Most rides at Disney have what Walter Disney called “animatronics.” These are robots that are used as actors throughout the parks. A great example of these animatronics are the presidents and the pirates. These animatronics have been used for decades...wonder what will happen with these besides updating and making more exhibits and shows?
The painting here is the closest to an animatronic as I can get in my painting collections, lol. I actually have the wooden mannequin as well as a plaster lady’s face and the flowers.
What’s your guess of how animatronics may be used in the future?
Turtles, stenciled on Tommy Copper face mask, acrylic paints, NFS by Angeline Marie Martinez, July, 2020. If you really want some stenciled face masks, please contact me at angeline @ angelinemarie.net and we can do some!
When I added the turtles to my mask, I thought “huh, wonder if gold and yellow is alright for turtles? I’m overthinking this because I love turtles, gold and yellow looks cool, and this project is Not worth more time as it looks fun already.”
Then this article came out about a rare yellow turtle found, of course, in 2020.
Whenever I wear this mask now, I giggle. I “day job” with very non-design, not-artist folks who probably look at my mask and overthink it like I did. But here I am overthinking again, because no one at my job even cares, lol!
What’s your favorite animal and colors? If you had your favorite animal in your favorite colors, would your animal be considered real or imaginary?
Hey, it’s for a face mask, so we can do whatever we want! Let me know if you’d like to send me some masks to stencil for you!

Since then, most painting manufacturing companies are producing paints without cadmium. Cadmium can be poisonous when ingested or absorbed by skin...and this can be a very slow, long time. Now, I don’t stick paintbrushes in my mouth. I don’t fingerpaint very often. It really makes me wonder if people eat paint that the manufacturers have to remake a paint formula that’s worked for hundreds of years. The next question about the new paints is how archival are they? Until my tubes are used up, I’ll use up the few cadmium paints in my studio. I’m not going to eat them!
As for the price of a tube now, I don’t know. I can tell from the color name that this particular red has “hue”...which means it’s not an “original” formula and is considered less expensive than cadmium (at least in 2014!).
It is hot. It's humid. The palm trees are dripping with rain drops. The sun comes out and sizzles the water off the fronds. It is hot. Hot orange, hot blues, some greens is how it feels in Florida most of the time.
Hot Summer Palm Trees began as a palette. A tube of cadmium orange hue paint costs about $26...so most of my leftover paint is incorporated into the backgrounds of new paintings. That is how most of the layers of paint evolved to this design.
