Some time last week I posted about a handful of 4″x6″ canvases I had purchased. I originally intended to make one large collage with all the canvases, but 15 canvases was just too much. This idea brewed a bit longer in my head and became much bigger.
Now there are going to be four collages with seven canvases per collage and each collage with have a theme. The themes are: Games, Books, Cartoons, and Space Travel. Today I worked on the Games collage which will include a D20, a Portal gun, a Super Mario Bros. fire flower, a Bioshock EVE Hypo and Adam extractor, a World of Warcraft Horde symbol banner, a Minecraft creeper, and a Diablo 2 Horadric Cube! Here’s my current placement for the canvas:
Obviously I have not painted yet, but all the images are sketched out. The D20 is actually painted, but it was upstairs when I took this picture. I can’t wait to start painting.
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.
