Am hoping this one goes better today….fingers crossed :)

Had to put this in here….So…every morning I take hundreds of photographs of opening the box and choosing the words….I plan on making a stop motion of my entire process at the end!! Today Kevin thought it would be a good idea to use my blog for some free advertising…..check it…

ha…never a dull day when Kev’s around!! :)

Theres a possibility todays image will be kept simple. I’m thinking maybe a cartoon style drawing or illustration!!

11:52

So…..I have thought about it for a while and I think I have come up with an idea!!! I tried to think of a funny hyperbole style saying about concentration because I was thinking about doing like a comic strip with a little character. But….then….I thought about it another bit….and while trying to make up random hyperbole sayings I came up with this….’Im trying so hard to concentrate my brain might explode’…and then it came to me!! I need to create a picture of me freaking out yesterday!!!!!!! :)

So I think I might take a photo of myself but I will photoshop my head out and replace it with an explosion type thing full of patterns and colours…it may include question marks and the words that I have used so far!!!

Choice of music today…..Lilly Allen!!! :)

Time to pose for the camera!!!! :)

13:46

Time to start illustrating and putting everything together. Im thinking I might use all the characters from day 1 day 2 etc for the background of this image….but…I will keep them all as outlines only!!

Need better tunes…hmmmmm….maybe time for some Bob Marley!! :)

16:36

I’m still working…trying to get a colourful explosion together!! I might leave it for a while and starting illustrating the background.

I need some food first!

And thats it…my final image!!
I think that by having a white pants on it’s almost like I am morphing into a character too!!

Afterthoughts:
Definitely a better day than yesterday…today’s words came at the perfect time!

I was thinking first of doing a really simple illustration of a little character saying something about not being able to concentrate. But then I started thinking about yesterday and how hard it was to concentrate…my head felt like it was going to explode!! And there it was….I would take a photo of myself…(something I really don’t like doing)…and I would make my head explode!

I wanted the explosion to be colourful, simply because I like colour and fun things. For this I used paint…I made a mess…photoshoped it and layered it up to create the final image. I think it’s vibrancy stands out!! I also tried explosions in photoshop but this option was more fun!

I also wanted to add the characters and the words I have had each day so far. That’s when I got a bit stuck…I wasn’t sure where to place them! I finally chose to put them standing beside me because its like I’m just hanging with cartoon characters…..which is how I feel lately! I then decided to place the words at the top of the image among the explosion because these are the words that have been in my brain for the past 8 days!

I chose the white pants in the end because I thought it worked well among the characters…its almost like I’m morphing into a character too!

And then I was done for another day!!! Time for bed…I’m tired!!
