W-art

Still; HB lead on sheet of paper I don't know if you can see this, but it's a bit of 'W-art' work that I like to do every now and then. Oh, what is "W-art"? Wannabe-art. Hahaha. Well, it's actually a cover of a CD...like the first page of the inlay card that one sees through the clear plastic cover? Yeah, the cover. Initially, I was torn between the desire to make it 'funky', unlike anything I'd ever attempted before...or to go with what I know. Chose that second option, but the tendency to somehow manifest shades of the first option were really hard to suppress...so I let it out just a little.

Now I know you're looking at this and going, "What the fug is this guy talking about?" But, let me assure you, even "wannabe-artists" tend to get all caught up in being true to their sense of self-expression. Alright, several lines of BS later, I just wanted to say that it's something I've done before on my senior page...or tried at least. And if anyone even considered the pain of creation, the birthing, so to speak, yes, it does take a while...and at the end of it the eyes and hands need a lot of rest.

But I've been thinking about why this particular pattern seems to interest me. I think it has to do with the whole 'organized chaos' that is life, or maybe I'm a failed biologist still having nightmares, and the odd asexually reproductive dream, about amoeba and paramecium. I don't know, but it's been something that I like getting into...it's just what to do once I end up filling a sheet of paper with these tiny shapes...like color in the shapes or the space between them. More importantly, what the hell was I thinking. No, more importantly, is there anything else I can do with this...besides make annoyingly small shapes. I'll let it come to me. And why do I like doing this? I don't know, but it gives me great joy to sit down and do it because I really immerse myself in how the individual shapes fit together...or how they automatically change or take on a different series of characteristics if I get up to take a break or something. Or maybe I'm just a really fidgety guy and I need to get this out of my system somehow...or maybe I just need to get some. Hmm...thanks for reminding myself. :-D

So, on that happy-go-lucky, and rather deprived note, I bid you adieu. It's been a crazy day, but that's just the way I like it. ;-)
