Well more images. What can we say, no real deep thoughts, just putting my head down and drawing. Sometimes it's good not to think and just to do. Create, create more, and when your done create more. End of story.
I don't know if I have much to say today. I've just ben working on some more drawings, combined with painting some patches and getting product ready for the new web shop, which will include a new website. Still got to get my act together and send all the files and images to the web designer. So lot's to do. Feels good to be productive again, just gives a good feeling. I guess that's all I got to say for now. Enjoy the drawings, more ideas coming out.
I seem to have a strange obsession with form and balance in the images I create. No mater what I do I seem to always go back to them. It’s like I have these rules for what makes something look good to me. It’s hard to describe in words what these “rules” are, but when I look at them it just clicks in my head, like drinking a cola when your thirsty and you make that “ahhhhh” sounds after…..it’s that feeling. On the opposite side it makes it hard to create work with “mistakes”, my brain doesn’t like it, it doesn’t click. How ever I’ve learnt that if I want to create art and not just design I’m going to have to embrace these mistakes, cause art doesn’t have to be pretty. Let me say that again…. art doesn’t have to be pretty. This is a new revolution for me, cause I’ve always created pretty art, but really I don’t have to. I think it’s time to free my minds a little and break my own rules. Forgive me if I cringe a little….I’ve slow to change.
Here are some new pieces that I've created. Tried to do one with lot's of color and where the images I create over lap and pushed together. I don't know if the colors came out the way I wanted. Have to work on that technic more. The black and white pieces below it are the original piece and the reworked one. They both have there charm....one is a lot rougher than the other.
I recently did a illustration/design job for Every Monday Jewelry based out of Utah US. I did four images that they could post to there instagram. They game me total artistic freedom which worked really well for me. They have only posted one of the images so far so I can only share that one for now. If your company is interested in hiring me for a similar project just hit me up. Let's do something fun together
