Napoleon Dynamite – Pink Shirt Day

I’m a big advocate of Pink Shirt Day and I have a special project to share with you today. This day has become such a big part of Canada and something near to my heart. 
Pink Shirt Day represents bully awareness and you can read about how it started here. Stand up and speak out; you’re not alone. 
A couple years ago, the Beau made me watch the most random movie ever, Napoleon Dynamite. There are a few scenes in the movie that really stood out to me, including the bully scenes. When I saw the Spiffy Cool image from Your Next Stamp, I envisioned Napoleon doing his dance.

Here’s a still image from the infamous dance scene:

Problem… Spiffy has straight hair and Napoleon has curly hair. No problem at all! Here’s what I did to transform his head:
  1. Ink up image as normal.
  2. Swipe away the top part of head with a baby wipe and stamp.
  3. Using a Copic Multiliner (0.3), draw in curly hair.
  4. Give character neckline and write “Vote for Pedro” on his shirt. 
  5. Voila – transformation complete!

Did you recognize the layout; I used the current Sweet Sunday Sketch for inspiration: 

Thanks for droppin’ in to see me! I’ll be back tomorrow with a fun annoucement and project to share.

  2. Gorgeous work Thanh, its been a while since i stopped in! Lovin your work as always!

  3. Thanh you are AMAZING, holy catfish batman you are so talented! Your card totally ROCKS and I totally want to see Napoleon Dynamite now! I have to say the bullying thing is painful, Ben is going though this at school Plus they think he is in the autism spectrum! Anyhoo…you are AMAZING! xoxo

    • Oh my gosh, K! I didn’t realize that Ben is going through this right now. Is the school/admin/teacher addressing it? It’s so hard sometimes. Keep me updated.

  4. First off, love the anti-bullying day, Hunter has a terrible time with bullies at school, breaks my heart.

    Secondly, LOVE ND! We probably have the entire thing memorized, too flippin’ funny! You altered him perfectly to mimic ND! Too funny! Awesome stuff my friend!

    • Your kid, too? Argh… can’t stand bullies. Is the school aware/how are they managing? I hope that there is something being done to alleviate the anxiety for Hunter.

      Thanks for the sweet comments, dear friend!

  5. HaHa…if only there was a Vote for Pedro tshirt in pink, how cool would that be?!

    Love your card, the reason behind it, your alterations to the stamp, and NAPOLEON DYNOMITE!
