Hiya everyone and welcome to a peek at my makeshift art studio, a dining table by the window. I have been doing a painting for a Brooklyn Art Library project where I get an arty pen pal and their canvas creation http://www.sketchbookproject.com/projects/penpalpainting
This is my usual set up with my iPad for looking at reference pictures, this time I had a book to use for reference so after making use of a little Google image searching I used my iPad to listen to my newly made playlist which contains only songs that make me happy and that have happy themes. I think it helped to make me quite hyper so I’m pretty tired now but pleased.
These are my tunes, I think I need to add some more but I enjoyed repeating my playlist a few times then I had a dance about after tidying up.
I am expressing more of my love for Doctor Who in another project for the Brooklyn Art Library. This project is about creating poetry and the overall theme is Epics and Understatements http://www.sketchbookproject.com/projects/verseonpaper I shall be sharing my poetry with you as I work on completing this project.
A grain of sand tumbling on the shore
I can’t give you everything
But I can give you more
You fought through voids to find me
But now I must return
This face I put before you so you may never yearn
He can whisper in your ear the words I’m not man enough to say
The pounding of my hearts deafens me this day
For this Sketchbook Project tour http://www.sketchbookproject.com/projects/sketchbookproject/tour/13 I have decided to celebrate everything I love about Doctor Who since I became a fan in 2005. I found a chipboard album of the right size and have decorated it with Chronology and Gorjuss craft papers and found some great pictures in my big Doctor Who sticker and ephemera collection. It shows what and who in the Whoniverse gives me the most joy and is also a little introduction to the show. My next step will be to protect the pages and bind them together and add the barcode.
This what I created for The Print Exchange project http://www.sketchbookproject.com/projects/printexchange I related the theme of The Drive Home to the power I need to find in my body during my dreams so I can push up off my feet and fly. I chose to show this by making prints of my feet which was really fun to do.
For this project we were asked to choose from 5 different photographs and then create a response to it.
The photo I chose is this
This is my response to it
