Well, it’s a start…
So day one was easy because most of the creating I did was for the blog site. Day two however, posed a challenge. Cthulhu boards might be dry enough to paint, but they are currently at Ryan’s house. If I can manage to get some time with Cthulhu later, today might even merit a second update.
My newest ideas are all inspired by the fact that when Ryan and I move out we will have empty walls. I bought a pack of 15 pre-prepped canvases (4″x6″). They are small, but I think that will help things seem less intimidating. I want to paint each canvas with a nerdy thing and then attach all the canvases like one of those collage picture frames. I need ideas of nerdy things to paint on the canvases. Ideas thus far include: D20, Portal gun, Horde symbol, Rebel Alliance symbol, Millennium Falcon…..but I need more ideas. suggestions welcome.
So today at home I decided, if I don’t start the Dune space-scape it won’t happen. Although not much has been completed, as you can see below, the first dark layer is there and it does need some drying time before I do more.
Purple Sketchbook Update:
So, the Purple Sketchbook is full of ideas and inspiration. Today I added some colored pencil details to random pages, but afterwards I started on a clean new page. I started with a blue and colored rapidly, letting my hand do whatever it wanted. Next came the red, following the same pattern. After the red is when I realized what I was unintentionally re-creating. Anyone recognize this from BSG?
And lastly, because music can be very inspirational, I’ve been listening to Tori Amos as I’ve been typing. Me and a Gun to be specific.
