I’m not sure where it came from. Could have been a dream. Maybe it is this MysteryBuild project I’ve been working on. What caused it does not matter. The feeling I’ve got from it does. A feeling of rejuvenation. Of relaxation. And of the need to return to my first love of creativity. After several days of thinking it through I have discovered what it is.
It is time to redefine myself and rediscover my voice – artistically.
How have I not heard of this until now? I cannot wait to get my kit and get started. Unfortunately, you will have to wait till at least October 20th to see what I come up with but I hope it will be worth the wait.
The results are in. At least from me. The boys are still having a lot of fun with the Found Typography exercise but have still not given me anything to post yet. In the meantime I thought I would share what I was able to find.
I had been working on this ink drawing for a while. I was posting progress on my Instagram account as I went along but when I posted this last pic people started asking me about prints. So I decided that, instead of carrying this any further, I was going to call it finished. I still don’t know if I can actually sell prints of this or not but I will update this post once I find out.
Here it is. The first Summer Exercise for the kids. Of course, I could not let them have all the fun so I am joining in too and will showcase all three results with the completion of each exercise.
This week we had to dream up our ultimate red wagon. No rules. Anything goes. Here are the results of “Pimp my Red Flyer”:
Update with Adam’s Flyer:
I was cleaning up a bit last week and came across a book that I had completely about. Caffeine for the Creative Mind by Stefan Mumaw and Wendy Lee Oldfield. I have read through just about all the different little exercises in this book and found them inspirational even though I have only really done one. So I set it aside and thought that might be fun to play with sometime soon.
Well, last Friday was my kids last day of school and, even with baseball season in full swing and spending all day last Saturday with their friends,by Sunday they were complaining about being bored and having nothing to do. That was the wrong thing to say to me once I was armed with this book.
That day (last Sunday) I gave them one week to “Pimp My Red Flyer” which is the first exercise in the book. Tomorrow we will see how it goes.
I’ve been tyring to organize myself well enough to get this blog going on a more regular basi. But, since I do not always have my computer with me, it is really tough to find time to write a post for the blog. Most of my work is done off my laptop but with all my other commitments it makes it tough to find time to sit down at my desk.
But, now that I have my iPad, I have another way to work on things. I started to work with the app from WordPress but I found the It a little cumbersome. That led me to start looking for and trying out alternative apps. Then I came across Posts from Pico.
With a beautiful, user-friendly interface, Posts offers me exactly what I have been looking for to help me maintain my blog when I am not able to sit down at my computer.
