Thoughts chiseled with good intent,
Like an open book.
Greetings everyone! I’ve been experimenting with some techniques to create some new forms of visual communication.
I was inspired after looking at graffiti and wall murals, and I started wondering what it is that I love about them so much. I think that, for the most part, it’s the bold, bright colors and the handwritten messages that draw me in. So… I thought it would be fun to attempt some miniaturized “wall mural art,” in the form of prints or posters, and incorporate some of my portrait ideas.
For my first test run (pictured above), I used Illustrator to create the profile silhouette of my youngest grandson a couple years back. I know, I know… it looks like every other 2 year old out there, but trust me, it’s really him! He was actually eating and I caught him mid-cracker, so I had to do a little magic erase, but I love the innocence that it captures. That’s how I see it anyway.
I thought it came out fun, and it was a perfect match for my Haiku tonight, written just in time for the Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge: Intent & Thought.
Peace & Love!
