My Ongoing Creative Conundrum

Ok, daydreaming is now a good thing. CHECK 👍 Thank you, Abraham-Hicks! I've been a guilty master of this practice all my life and I won't feel guilty about it anymore! Well, that's my intention. Onto the next overthought... The moment I started accepting this freedom, I started rethinking what I want to do creatively... … Continue reading My Ongoing Creative Conundrum

Distorted Ozs #13 – Eat Your Heart Out

While barely recognizable as a robot, I chose to continue some features I've done earlier. Such as the open chest cavity and the visible heart. Only this time, the heart seems to be floating just out of reach of the teeth. The line from which it hangs is over the sharp teeth, not behind it. … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #13 – Eat Your Heart Out

Distorted Ozs #12 – A Little Heart

I came across this peculiar robot drawing. It had no face, no hat, and no obvious mobility. Even if all its mechanics were in the rib cage, there's little mechanical evidence that it could move its arms and legs. The joints don't seem right. Maybe it's magic. If it's magic, it could be a Tin … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #12 – A Little Heart

Distorted Ozs #11

Ok, so I'm going out on a limb for this interpretation of the Tin Man. In fact, I'm sure it has something to do with a recent documentary I watched on classic horror films. The monsters from outer space in the old B movies always seemed to have only one eye. Why not do the … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #11

Distorted Ozs #10

The paper was stained when I drew on it and I'm not sure how that might have changed the way I drew it. He's not quite as refined as I had first imagined and I wasn't happy with it at first. The graphite pencil added a little fun movement in its messy application. The axe … Continue reading Distorted Ozs #10

More Distorted Ozs & a confession

In a recent conversation with my drawing teacher, he again expressed that these characters are starting to take on lives, but will only live if I put them in a story. I argued that I wasn't interested to do so, but this last batch of drawings seem a little flat to me. Maybe, they are … Continue reading More Distorted Ozs & a confession

Joy & Bliss, Dancing Like They Just Don't Care – The Hollow Ones #21

All together now... lift your hands in the air, like you just don't care! Do I really need to say more? I felt this title in the line drawing I started with. Then the choice of bright yellow dancers in a world of pinks and violets just seemed right. I think I need this feeling … Continue reading Joy & Bliss, Dancing Like They Just Don't Care – The Hollow Ones #21

I Feel So Much Love For You – The Hollow Ones #20

Something in the way the figure in the forefront is turning to look at the one behind, it feels like a look of love. Well, it reminds me of the awesome feeling I get when I look at my wife, or she looks at me with love. The darkish background becomes lighter and yellower with … Continue reading I Feel So Much Love For You – The Hollow Ones #20

A Little Rain Can’t Hurt Me – The Hollow Ones #18

She has a defiant optimism that is very attractive. It seems to exude from. her and change the world as she passes by. This is why I chose the green behind her. Her whole being is afire with positivity. She leads with it in the colour yellow. More to come...

Incongruous Abstractions

The project challenge was to make abstract forms, defines as not resembling anything. The secondary challenges were that they must be hung on a wall, possibly incorporate other materials, potential tally be made with a variety of techniques (coils, slabs, pinch-pots, etc..) and finished with different glazes, engines, and terra sigillata. While, I've had the … Continue reading Incongruous Abstractions
