Joined online creativity group with Jan Allsopp

I’ve joined a creativity group with Jan Allsopp who I’ve known online for a long time. My commitment is for a month (at least). Committed to 15 min a day for the month of January – I’m working on a book. I’ll post more about the book as time goes on.  Today is day six and I’ve produced a lot each day.  I find it helpful to have such a strong focus. A simple idea, choose a route – i.e. the tools. Mine are the Google files (Doc and Slides) I’m using to write the book. In addition we create ‘cruise control’ – a voluntary frame in which to work. Some voluntary restrictions I’m using are:

  • No new sketches.
  • Work on the book proposal only, not the whole book.

Also good to see other peoples art – so far so good. It will get harder as the month intensifies.

This is what the spreads in the book  look like:


 

Art Project 2017

I have a new creative project. A book. I will select about a hundred of my images that evoke a variety of mood and intensity, ranging from calm, surprise to fear. I’m working on the words. This project will link my art work with my psychological work. I’m looking for quality. Curation. The main thrust of the work is abstract, though some open-ended figurative images might pass the test.

Posts wi candidate images for the project will be in the Category ITM . I’ll be creating new images, searching for old ones, updating old ones and improving print quality if I can.

Which of my images do you think belong here? Have a look at ThousandSketches and earlier sketches on this blog. Post a link in the comments on this post And we can discuss.

Please comment on posts. What is the mood, intensity and moment or life stage the image evokes.

I’ll continue to post new sketches here that are not in the ITM Category (yet), so I will feel free to explore.

Thanks for being on the journey so far.

Its more than a year since I posted some of my art. There are reasons! But here are a few more – continuing more or less where I left off.
