my friend Beth gave me this book for Christmas! it is such a cool present!
each double page spread has a different task to do creatively (if you've seen wreck this journal its similar to that) and they are all really exiting. most of the experiments are creative styles to practice,projects and small things to do.
"1. Do a painting with a water based medium (pen, marker, watercolour etc.
2. Leave it out during a rain or snowstorm"
basically the book is aiming to remove boundaries of structure and how things should be done, as that is a concept we have to develop for ourselves, each creative style should be subject to the individual. It is creating through destruction! Recently i had decided to create consciously, represent feelings thoughts and ideas visually, and be unafraid if they are not in proportion or not in my style or do not contain skill or taste, creating for myself not just art AS. I've been thinking lot of the use blogging, writing, drawing and also, in turn reading others writing, seeing others drawings and listening to their speech and their music. we are inspired from other people, and in turn inspire others ourselves through our own actions. - when i read blog posts about what inspires others, like a post of a collection of images and then an outfit or a drawing or a passage of text about how they inspire the blogger or how they interpret the images/writing etc, the inspiration they are feeding off inspires me, and so does the bloggers interpretation and the fact they have gained inspiration, it is a big cycle of cool ideas and people and pictures and music. I've started to draw,read, write, blog more to be able to have my own creative output. i wrote this really quickly as i was trying to represent what was running through my head, so sorry if it doesn't make sense due to lack of punctuation and garbling etc.
