With the holiday season upon us, surely we will all be visiting the mall perhaps more than we’d like to. Lucky J WYID has started off his season by creating a mall for all of us to enjoy. I had the opportunity to ask Lucky J WYID some questions about designing his mall which you may find inspirational for your own work!
Tinkerbell WYID: What inspired you to create a mall?
Lucky J WYID: Well, I think the new fall floor tiles gave me a start. plus with xmas coming a Fall/Winter mall will be what everyone is feeling! SHOPPING!
Tinkerbell WYID: And the individual rooms that went into it?
Lucky J WYID: Oh each room has it opportunities and challenges. I LOVED the cliff side for creating the pottery store. I pictured a Smokie Mountain shop with floor to ceiling windows. the fall collection was inspiring for that.
Tinkerbell WYID: How difficult a project was this for you?
Lucky J WYID: Hmmmm.. well, it was a three day adventure and is any project ever really completed? –Not difficult at all. I love when new stuff comes out which gives me something to work with.
Tinkerbell WYID: Why did you choose the RV for the canvas of your work?
Lucky J WYID: RV is one of my new favorites. Not too many rooms, but more then the trailer house. And the front of the RV is able to be covered by many objects– a great pallet to paint on! And on top of that, its COINS!! :)
Lovely lobby with a view
A theater lobby with yummy treats
An elegant movie theater
Parking spaces still open!
Main lobby with an old fashioned car on display
It was such a pleasure chatting with Lucky J, and I hope all of you are as inspired as I am by his work. Could creating a mall to represent your very own mall madness be in your future?
