This very small picture to the left is what has been driving me crazy for the past two hours. C-R-A-Z-Y. Deep breaths...okay. So at the SDA conference one thing that we discussed at length in various settings was the need to have an on-line presence. (Hence, this web, thank you for visiting by the way...and the main catalyst for me creating this here blog...I digress...) Web, check. Blog, check. Facebook page...kind of...check? The albums are there, been going through pictures of my work from the past ten years (alright, so it is a little more than that) and that was an undertaking. I guess I did come in just before digital cameras got really big...or maybe I just couldn't afford one right away. I do have many pieces photgraphed from undergraduate, but there are many pieces that are in hardcopy format or even slide format. So that will be another project for another day. I did work on some physical, 'with my hands' work today...working on a sketch inpspired by a Mucha print that I really like...will post when it is a little more completed.
Fresh from the conference, with the sights and sounds of a new city under my belt so to speak...ideas are racing through my head. At my workshop with Anna Carlson we were discussing working in multiples, pushing an idea instead of stopping after the first one or three. I have an idea where to start but first want to continue to just draw for a little bit, not worrying about a finished product. Have an idea for a pen drawing challenge...just drawing and doodlin' until all of the ink runs out and seeing what happens. Still working out the details...
