Lookout! Here comes Jelly Beanstalk! She is sassy and full of attitude. “Whatever!?!” as she would say. With any of her many flailing hands on her hips, Jellybean is a force to be reckoned with.
While she is emotional, unreasonable and flies off the handle at the slightest provocation, she speaks up for herself and wants to get to the bottom of things. Confrontational and gutsy, Jellybean is a complex character with many layers. Although her wild hair matches her zany thinking, she is a good friend and an explorer at heart. Maybe that’s why she has four hearts on her chest. When I was almost finished applying glazes on her, I said to myself that I was not going to leave the studio until she made me laugh. It was getting late and I was tired and hungry, but wouldn’t leave until I had that satisfaction. I painted a spinal, web pattern on her back and lines to accentuate knobby knees turning in, but it wasn’t until I painted her eyes, bulging and full of attitude, that I laughed. Jelly Beanstalk was finally finished and I could go home!
