One of the great things about being a member of a street team of Etsy is rubbing elbows with other artists that are doing great things and going places.
Deanna officially announced yesterday that one of her pieces of fantasy art was used on the set of a movie scheduled to open on Thanksgiving Day!
The movie is Burlesque, starring Cher and Christina Agulera with Cam Gigandet as Christina’s love interest.
I have to confess that I don’t know much about Christina Agulera other than she was once a Mouseketeer and there was a bit of hullabaloo when her transition from little girl to woman was too sexy for some (why must females in the public eye remain chaste little girls forever?). At least I haven’t heard gossip about her kissing Madonna or going to jail for alcohol abuse related misdemeanors, and her voice does sound amazing in the video clip on the movie’s website. I think she looks much better with short hair, though. The long hair makes her look like a blond Kathy Griffin.
I had to look up Cam Gigandet; he was on the television series “The OC” (which I’ve never seen) and played James in the movie Twilight (which I have seen and in which he was not looking his most gorgeous). He also appeared in The Unborn and Pandorum, both of which I have seen and liked (and in which he was unmemorable). But he sure is yummy!
The rest of the supporting cast, Stanley Tucci, Alan Cumming, Peter Gallagher, Kristen Bell, Julianne Hough, Eric Dane and David Walter, are all stellar performers.
And then there is the Queen, the Dame Sans Merci, the Star: Cher! She’s 64 years old and I’m willing to bet she’ll look just as good when she’s 90. It just ain’t fair, but I don’t begrudge her one minute of her life; she’s earned every moment.
And here is a peek at part of Deanna’s wonderful artwork appearing in the movie, entitled “Victorian Cabaret,” which is available for sale at her personal website, as well as her Etsy boutique, where you’ll also find other burlesque- and cabaret-themed artwork:
