The stickers are small and fun. I can usually get through one in about 2 hours so I like to do as many as I can in a day. You can see your style evolve from sticker to sticker as you learn more about the process. I’ve done close to 20 now. I anticipate more. Like I said they’re fun.
This image was based on a picture I took. Its pretty abstract and limited to a few colors. It may become a screen printed piece soon.
It’s been a while here. In fairness I’ve moved to a new city and started working at a screen printing shop. The other day at work got a mixture of inks on my pants and thought it was interesting enough to photograph. I put it into Illustrator and started messing with it. This is how it turned out. I created a mosaic pattern and manipulated the color of each piece.

I stumbled upon this a couple of months ago.
Silk allows you to create colorful art against a stark black background. It has a really nice spacey effect. Choose your color or combination of colors, click and drag across the screen. Depending on the colors you chose and the pace of your stroke different, tiny silken strands of color escape from your mouse and create flowing art. Careful not to go to this site if you have other things to do because you will get distracted.
Here are some of my silk creations.
