Its a new day….and I have two new words!
Todays words are….Hyperbole and Concentration.
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!!
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!!!!
So…have taken some photos of myself and got some funky paint.
Thought I’d be really creative and make a flower…
So…have been messing with paint and photoshop!!
…I had to zoom right in to get rid of the green bits!!
And this is what I look like with no head!!
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!!
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!
So…I’m in the middle of illustrating my little guys..but I have to take a little break to go see my kids.
Still trying to figure out what to do with the background!!
..am also wondering if I should posterize my body!!!
I was kicked out of college and am working at home. I decided to draw my leggings because the edges were still jagged looking…..so while I was doing that I done this….
…I kinda like it!!
Holy Moly…just realised I forgot the word terrorist…ooops!!! It’s in now though!
Am just trying to decide which image to choose!!!! Hmmmmmmmm…….
So…this is what its like with a black pants…
…but…I like this one best!!!
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!!
