Some days, my imagination works overtime. A simple glance out my window turned into a small project…. I looked out the window, took a picture then uploaded it to my computer to do a little drawing. What do you see?
“Back in the day” (who thinks they’d ever say something like that?), I’d send my film out to be processed and … wait … maybe enlarge the photo on a color copier a few times and then draw on it with markers. Now with the magic of the computer, I can draw right on my tablet* and get my idea out quickly. I am not an expert at this, in fact, my tablet is so old that it wasn’t even available online anymore.
So, there it is – do you see the hippo? I have 2 questions:
- What did you see in the first picture? Let your imagination go wild! If you’d like to save it to your computer and print/draw on it (any way you can, print/pen, tablet, collage, pencils, etc.) and send it back to me, I think that would be a fun display to see (leave a comment or click Contact). How about in a week, if anyone responds, I’ll do a blog post showcasing the art with your links?!? Let’s call it a Creativity Challenge.
- If you know of an online course that could teach me how to use my Wacom tablet better, I’d appreciate a link! I bought it long ago with aspirations of digital design & it rests on my shelf, the most unused of all my craft supplies, but I think has the most potential!
I also have the photo in my Flickr page, much larger – but they just updated the entire site today and it was shockingly hard to navigate around at first. Here’s the original photo if you want to see & download it from Flickr.
Thank you for ignoring the crappy lawn.
