I created the little diddy using Carrie Bradshaw's quote a week or two ago and needed somewhere to put it so it wouldn't get messed up. After all, it was just some paper, ink and ribbon stuck together with some rubber cement. So, I glued it in my sketch diary and left it laying on my desk.
As the week went by, I added the moon face. It was something I'd found on the web and saved and I liked the color of the man in the moon ... he had a tinge of blue, like the ribbon. So, I cut him out and glued him down. Then, the doodling started.
I must confess I was inspired by some drawings I'd seen a couple of years ago by an artist named Pfeiffer ... her first name escapes me. She did these charming paintings of female figures, dressed in colorful fashions engaged in fun and funny activities. I modeled my drawing on her characters and colored her with my Crayola colored pencils. I like her and might just try that inspiration again!
So, here is my offering to the creativity gods for this week, although it's not the only thing I did. I also created a Powerpoint slide show and sent it to my relatives for the upcoming family reunion in North Carolina that I cannot attend this year. I've taken umpteen photos of them in past years and wanted to share, so since I can't be there in person, I'll be there in spirit and with my photographs! Now, isn't that creative?
Enjoy your weekend! Make something fun!
