Sometimes, okay, many times, sitting at my desk, I stare at the blank space and feel like my brain is bricked. There is just nothing at all happening up there. So I try to come up with some tools to a least get something down on the page. Anything.
This mornings exercise was to pick a random word (I actually have a random word generator app on my android), and todays word was 'opposite' except I forgot how to spell. But that sparked some fun happenings, and got me going.
Some of my sketches get turned into more finished works of art.
I'm still working on making Simba and Batman a new linocut print. This is a frottage (crayon rubbing) in lieu of a test print of my linocut. It's ready to get inked for a proof, but I love the frottage version so much I'm seriously considering turning it into finished artwork. The only problem is, what paper? It has to be thin, to reveal the line, but I would want something more arty than computer paper.
And in the meantime, I turned Simba and Batman into a finished digital artwork available as a download on Etsy.
