Quick abstract landscape scene I created in Illustrator. Are they mountains or icebergs. Is that the sun or the moon? I don’t even know.
I discovered digital artist Andy Gilmore a few years ago and he’s one of my favorites. If any of you have seen the top of my laptop, he is the artist responsible for the design I screen printed on it. His pieces are heavily based in geometry and rely on patterns. He then breaks those rules early and often, making him very difficult to figure out. I think thats why I like his work. You can view some of his prints for sale here not that any of you can probably afford one, but if you can get me one.
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.
So I’m going to try and post something every day. Anything I’ve done or thought or made.
I did some sketching the other day. I figure I’ll start there:
It was a beautiful day. Brisk. Falls coming but still very nice out. I sat and sketched the Japanese Maple tree in the back yard by the pond. What started as a light sketch quickly turned into a more detailed artistic endeavor. I eventually scanned the sketch and threw it into Photoshop. I had no idea where I was going with this so I just had fun with it. Here’s the result. I’m calling it Life on Mars.
