My silly side is coming out in me today. I started doing a study of SenshiStock's photo and listening for the dryer as I sketched. When I put the two thoughts together I came up with a Domestic Warrior idea. Today was laundry. Nothing could be more boring than laundry. Once I get started on a silly idea, it seems like it spreads in my mind and I can't help but expand on it. Before I was even done with this sketch, I was already coming up with more ideas for my Domestic Warrior series. The cook, the toilet bowl cleaner, the snack maker, the taxi driver, the homework helper, etc. To complete the irony, they would have to be done in a realistic style.
When I get famous for my Domestic Warrior series, I could say that these images reflect how our society creates drama from mundain daily life to put on display for our own amusement. Or something like that. No one has to know that it was just the by product of sketching while doing household chores. Right?
Oh yeah.. I am having way too much fun with this silly idea.
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
A closer look at the same pose. I notice that #art is a lot like writing. The rough sketch is the idea. The second sketch is like the initial edit. The more I draw the same #sketch the more solid the ideas become. I bet the pros know this, but I am just discovering the power of a redraw. #art #artist #sketchbook #drawingvia Instagram
