A few weeks ago I finished Scoop the Ice Cream Truck for Sky Pony Press —already up on Amazon for Presale! Whoo-hoo! It was an amazing, challenging and wonderful experience!
But last week I felt this need to rip something up, to get over trying to make every image just right, to be random. You know what I mean?
I got some scrapbooking papers.
Three seconds. Rip. Glue. Three seconds. Rip. Glue. Three seconds. Snip. Glue. It's important to be quick or your 'creative' brain will take over and be really annoying . . . "You know, Patricia, those colors don't work." "Just sayin'." "You're going to put that there? Really?"
Work fast and play loud music.
While that dried, I drew an animal. I could have cut him out of checkered paper, but I put him in Photoshop and dropped in checks.
I got into my stamp box and found a bird. I love stamps!
|At The Ink Pad in New York. I went there to buy one stamp. Guess how many stamps I bought?|
Finally, in Photoshop—but this can be done with paints—I extended some of the background colors to make it more cohesive.
On Sunday, November 5 you are invited to my studio to see how I work,
to listen to great music and drink hot cider!
Hope you can come!
