Well, I think the title tells it all, don't you? The Igor character is quickly becoming my favourite and it just makes me laugh... perhaps it's the name Igor... In my name I hear the scene from Young Frankenstein where Igor reacts to how his name is pronounced by Dr. Frankenstein! I love that film!
I really would love to read what you think the narrative is in this one. For me, it's just a collections of freaks, or possibly some new and unlikely group of superheroes, including the abstract cloud floating behind them.... that could be "The wind"... What do you see?
The progression was to find a way to link up to five of the rapid sketches into a single drawing. The ones you see here are the first attempt at this linked drawing. The teacher has since elaborated and let us know that he is hoping for more than simply having several images on the … Continue reading Building An Idea, Part 4 – Linked Dreams
Who knows what the broken telephone game is? You know, it's the one where a group of folks sit in a circle and one person whispers a word into the ear of the person on their left (or right, depending on the direction you choose to progress), then that person whispers what they think they … Continue reading Building An Idea – Part 3 – Broken Telephone Drawings
I have to credit this on a long time fascination about the symbolism of the crow. Also, a recent reading of a fiction book that is written about human history from the perspective of the crows (KA by John Crowley). Ok, maybe the fact that I watch the TV show Vikings also contributes to it... … Continue reading Building An Idea – Harbinger
This is for the parents out there. How many times have you heard yourself repeat a saying from your parents? The one that comes to mind when looking at this odd drawing is "we look with our eyes, not our fingers". Well, what if you had eyes on your fingers? What would you say then? … Continue reading Building An Idea – Admonishing The Child
Google the marvellous bread fish and you will see they don't look anything like this cartoonish version of the lamprey eel. However, the song rings through my imagination when I look at this drawing. I'm not sure where I got it from, nor what I intended with this "imaginary thing", but, well, here you have … Continue reading Building An Idea – The Marvelous Breadfish???
I picked up my kid at school today and as usual her first question was "what's for supper?" Today it was accompanied with "I'm starving!" She then proceeded to devour a 'snack' that I was sure would ruin her appetite for supper, but she swore it wouldn't. While, this story isn't the inspiration for this … Continue reading Building An Idea – The Famished Teen
Following yesterday's addition to this process about anxiety, this none seems to follow nicely. It's all about mood. The face is filled with tension and the body is stiff with it. Again, I'm sure I've seen some version of this image somewhere, so I can't claim originality. However, there may be some part that is … Continue reading Building An Idea – Very Tense
This one feels like an internalized scream. The intensity of the anxiety is almost humorous. Perhaps it's the widened bloodshot eye. It's all about the feeling. Cartoonish? Of course, that's the style I enjoy using to express emotions. More to come...
