Playing

I sort of see birds, owls, flying out of these flowers? Or old fashioned rocket ships, or a totem pole. When you play with patterns you can find all sorts of things. I like seeing faces in things. I recently found out it’s called Pareidolia. We studied it during one of the semesters at college, the mind looks for patterns and sometimes finds them.

Waiting

Tied in knots.. An old drawing from the 80’s

The results of this semesters work on the illustration course I am doing are not due out till the middle of June but we go back to work at the start of June. So effectively we are starting back without knowing if we have passed or failed. The fees are due so you might also pay without knowing if you are allowed to continue. To say there are quite a few nervous students about is no joke. Tied in knots, waiting to see what happens next.

Quiet day

I can’t share my college art work, but I’m busy trying to put a project together to create an artefact that can be used either as a promotion of my work and/or a product to sell.

So what do I have to do? Convert a two dimensional image to a three dimensional object. Something that can be used by people, that is not expensive, non polluting, useful, environmentally friendly.

I have to investigate its context. Whether there is a historical precursor to my idea and research it’s audience, it’s possible outcomes. I’ve got to do a lot of writing now. I hope I can make sense of it all. Fingers crossed.
