I am not as prolific as in my ThousandSketches days. But when the urge comes I find I’m enjoying my productions. I recently sold a few prints and loved making them. Last night I thought about spring. I made the image below, Day I called it. So I also made a Night. Next post.
No I’ve not yeast printed them but put them on Pinterest, and snapped the three side by side.
These were built from the same DNA but have vastly different experiences, and have washed out in their various ways… Are they still related?
This is an image (like all these recent instagram ones has been somewhat mutilated by filters. The thing is that in cyberspace things don’t really wear down with age or use, but instagram instantly gives the image some sense of being worn in – like a n old pair of jeans. Then I think wabi sabi. I looked for images with that tag and found a few that sit well alongside this one 9and the others probably) – ill post them up in the next post.
This is a triptych created by making three Instagram versions from the same image. On the iPad.
The phrase “I am nature” from Jackson Pollock was going through my mind and was the stimulus for me to continue in my calligraphy mode. I have that sense that my nature is in these sketches, they flow from my hand and get tweaked by my eye.
There is more though. I’m challenging my owns and certainly the genesal concepttion that the tools, are not natural. There is something very organic about the growth of these tools. I’ve watched them evolve over 20 or more years and they have their own identity and nanature, they bring their own character to the party, they might well say “I am nature”.
I’ll post the next two up in a moment.
One of the three. I have another set of three coming up. I like those better. I always like the last thing I did better.
I have another blog: Psyberspace This is a test message to see if a post here alerts a reader on that blog.
Ill add an img for good measure.
Here is a recent doodle of mine:
This is an early sketch in my ThousandSketches – I recall being delighted how it captured my intention!
And I’m back on Flickr – tried Zenphoto but it does not have all the functionality, and upgrading it is hard, and I think it let the hack attack into my server. So, I’ll let yahoo do it. And I have copies in Aperture.
I’ve been doodling on the iPad, inspired by some Edvard Munch landscapes that I’ll post up in a moment. Nothing really looked right though till I passed my sketch through the Instagram app.
By painting colors and lines and forms seen in quickened mood I was seeking to make this mood vibrate as a phonograph does. This was the origin of the paintings in The Frieze of Life.
More versions of these images are on my flickr site (click the image above)
Part of a series of post earthquake sketches. They also fall into my calligraphy category.
