Erath Legacy - 3 by DanielleDucrest
Erath Legacy - 3
A & E Gallery
August Erath Building
New Iberia, Louisiana, USA
April 2016

Built in the 1880s by August Erath to serve as a hardware store and residence, the building is a well-preserved cross between the Italianate and Greek Revival architectural styles. Erath became mayor about five years later, and seeing as how he was instrumental in the construction of the city's railroad in the 1890s, it was probably no coincidence that a railroad spur was located directly behind the building. The street that leads past the Erath building to the railroad was paved with bricks in 1919 or the 1920s.

Today, the ground floor of the building is home to the A & E Gallery, the site of a co-op of artists and their artwork. Since April 28th, my jewelry is now on display there, too. If you're ever in New Iberia, please be sure to stop by.

Occasionally, the gallery hosts a special open-house called the Brick Street Market. I thought it was only fitting to include the actual brick street in the shot. If not for the cars parked out front, this shot would be perfect.

After way too many months, here's another review of a piece of art available here on DeviantArt. I made a new year's resolution to post a review of artwork on my blog every week for 2014, and this is my first.

I've also published this on my blog at danielleducrest.blogspot.com/2….

"Investigating" by Bestiolina

This is a three-panel comic that shows two Doctor Who characters in drawn form. They are identifiable as Amelia Pond and the Doctor, even without the dialogue that mentions their names. They are investigating a strange symbol on a wall. The symbol would be recognizable to Supernatural fans as an angel banishing symbol, but the pair in this strip have never seen it before, so they speculate what it might be. I think my favorite part about this strip is in the dialogue: that both of them are partly right and partly wrong. They're equals, just like they're portrayed on the show (no matter how often the Doctor tries to be the leader and give orders). In the strip, Amy thinks it's a satanic symbol and that it's painted in blood. She's right on the latter count and wrong on the former count. The Doctor thinks the symbol is an "emergency ejection system" painted in something other than blood, and he's only partly right. Both of them are fully in-character; the Doctor even licks the blood and promptly spits it out without any regard to where his companion is standing, which is normal for him.

Amy's at least half a foot shorter in this strip than the actress who plays her. And though, in the third panel, the lack of a background places greater emphasis on the action in the foreground, I'm not a fan of suddenly absent backgrounds after panels that included background details. Maybe I'd be happier if the negative space in the third panel was gray-yellow instead of light blue and therefore matching the other panels. I'm not sure, and it's a minor detail, anyway. Bestiolina did a great job drawing the Doctor's face--especially Matt Smith's cheekbones and hair. I also like the dialogue, as I already said. I also like the little visual clues that indicate they're in a dilapidated room, such as the tears in the wallpaper and the stains in the corners and at the base. This is a short, funny strip, and I have fewer criticisms for it and more compliments.
