This article I read on the net this morning really hit a nerve. So I cut some text out and (poorly) laid this out so I could print it and stick it on the wall beside my desk. I wouldn't say it causes me to be unhappy, but my mind is never in the present, no matter what, and infuriatingly, always wants to be somewhere else or be doing something else.
I doubt this bile-coloured poster will remedy this but hopefully it will keep giving me a boot in the arse and remind me to come back to.. whatever I've inevitably wandered away from again and again...
Couple of things about this one. It was the first time in years I tried stippling, since maybe my high school art teacher made a mandatory project out of it AND, thinking about it, that was the first time I used a grid to draw something since... trying to draw the inside cover of U2's Joshua Tree album... when it was fairly new! goo old.
I thought about this grid process, and as someone who genuinely dislikes drawing, painting or adding backgrounds to images I realize it's perfect. It feels a bit like cheating but everything ends up where it's supposed to be and looks better than most backgrounds I create just from free handing a photo reference.
