December Cocoon

26 Dec

CocoonLala confirms that the rumors of her “December Cocoon” are true.  The December Cocoon is a concept Lala Drona learned in art rehab.  During the time she spent at the Tableau Vierge her guides taught her that in order to create art, there must be periods of silence, periods when one must deny his/herself the pleasure of creation.  This period is thought to bring the artist inspiration, and motivation, but also much frustration and anxiety.  After the process, the artist emerges transformed, clean-headed and swimming in creative imagery (hence the name “Cocoon.”)Painting

Lala recently decided to apply this theory to her life, outside of the center and unguided by Tableau Vierge personnel.  She calls it the “December Cocoon.”  Unfortunately, Lala only made it to day 26 before relapsing and indulging herself in an all day art-binge.  When asked why she prematurely broke through the cocoon, Lala responded, “It was just time.  I was really frustrated, and I needed my fix.  I don’t feel guilty about it either.  On the contrary, I’m pretty proud of myself.”  She explains that the process is much more intense and unstable without the guidance of a sponsor, and does not recommend anyone to experiment with the cocoon theory without proper guidance and preparation.

Lala documented the project process for all you Drones, and has been kind enough to upload the photos to us here at Based on a Fact.  The art piece is still unfinished, but here are some images of the progress she has made during her all day art-binge.

Lala: "The first thing I do is surf the web for images that I can steal.  Then I digitally edit them to create a reference for the painting.  I create several examples with different types of shoes and different dogs.  These (above) are just the ones I chose.

Lala: "The next step is to draw the image directly onto the canvas with pencil.  There, I outline shadows etc. to prepare for the painting.  Next, I choose color, mix color and paint.

Lala, a Liar and a Thief.

Lala’s sudden switch from visual arts to fiction has stunned fans and confused critics, causing many to take a closer look into the artist’s past.  Many are not familiar with story behind the name Lala Drona.  “La ladrona” in Spanish, means “the thief” (feminine).  Lala’s process of creation is one of theft.  She shamelessly steals from others and creates from those experiences.  “Copying is my way of learning,” she told sources at the last FIAC art fair.  She explains that this is how she was forced to learn given her non-academic artistic experience.

This is just one of the many lies that have surfaced since investigating Lala’s past.  As in former articles, we have found Lala to have been a cheerleader gone bad and a vegan supersize me challenge loser.  On Lala Drona forums, some bash the artist for naming her fans Drones, saying that stealing the tactic from Lady Gaga  is just opportunistic and tacky.  Others on the forums come to the artist’s defense and proudly call themselves Drones, saying maybe it’s time to cheer for the “bad guy”.

In February 2013, Lala released photos of herself after an “accident” where she chipped her tooth.  However, rumors have been questioning the real facts behind this supposed accident that only Lala’s entourage witnessed.  Many question if the accident was really a cover-up for a botched lip augmentation (photo above).

More and more researchers are suggesting that Lala’s attempt to make the chipped tooth trendy was in fact stolen and copied from the character Lloyd Christmas in the film Dumb and Dumber.  The resemblance is too uncanny to just be coincidence.

Still, many fans hold true to the rising artist despite her seemingly dishonest approach to art.  As time goes, more and more evidence surfaces about a hidden past and possible ulterior motives, but the link between Lala and her Drones holds strong.  This sort of dishonesty may be a perfect storm for an art villain in the making.  Time will only tell whether the artist will find the light, copy until she is able to learn to create from some place pure.  Or, if she will continue to viciously steal and copy, pointing a finger and laughing at those who say, but do not do.
