They’re cool words together…am thinking this could be another dark kinda image…hmmm….or maybe not!!! I need tea and thinking!!! :)

Tunes…The Beatles!!

So..turns out youtube wont play most Beatles songs, so gonna listen to some Bowie instead!!

I have been thinking about todays words…and am kind of thinking I could maybe try taking a photograph of a person in a dark room but with a hint of light around their face and then I could try to create a kind of smokey skull image in photoshop…then combine them to make it look like the person is breathing it out!

Oh….something cool happened today. A few days before I started this project I emailed Steve Simpson, explained what I was doing and asked him for two words….He emailed me back today!!! Am not sure what I’m going to do with them now though!!

Time for some photoshop tutorials I think!

So…I have done this…now have to to figure out how to make it smokey looking!!

Im back…I’v been off taking photos of smoke!!!

While I was gone I was thinking about what to do with the words I have received from Steve Simpson….and I reckon the best thing to do with them is keep them for the last day…..So it will be like a Bonus Steve Simpson kinda day!!! This one will be different because I know what the words are and so I will have a little while to think about it!!!! Hmmmmm….hopefully I can think of something good!! So thats my plan for that.

Ha…how cool is that!!! :)

Anyway…back to today….My plan is to mess around with some of the photographs and then merge them with the skull illustration!!!

This may be a disaster but its worth a try!! :)

Right…so that didn’t go as planned! Oh well…tomorrow is another day!

Afterthoughts: Hmmmmmm…it kinda worked and it kinda didn’t. I definitely would have needed a few more hours to finish the piece to how I wanted it to look!
