A journal page coming to life...
phase 1; laying down color (acrylic mixed with a medium to thin it) mod-podging Arlin Jack's mug shot in.
phase 2; brainstorming all the characters I could turn Arlin into! As he's obsession for Dinosaurs seems to be growing (still) my pencil went to town creating this little monster.
phase 3; what would my little blue dinosaur be saying...or rather be singing to me?!
& then I started humming this tune in my head ('cause it's often a melody on repeat round here!)
"d" is for Dinosaur! Can you sing it with me?!
a work in progress (lettering and background have a ways to go)...but I now laugh every time I open my journal...which a lot of you art-festers would be so proud of me- I have about 6 or 7 pages in the works! Yipee, I no longer sit with an intimidating...all white journal in front me, I attribute cracking out of my art funk shell to attending Artfest and being inspired by all of you lovely ladies. I've been spinning ever since I got home, feeling alive wanting to...create, create, create!!!
....luckily Arlin Jack gets an Easter basket from grandpa Tom and Shelly in California-thank you! (I'm SO bad- I'm doin' the whole Easter egg hunt thing, but totally snoozed on prepping a basket...next year I promise to have my ears and tail in order!
do you see the horns!? no?... yah they're there... straight to the goodies!! "Nom Nom!" as Arlin says.
Otis waited anxiously for some animal cookie crumbs to hit the floor...but got no love.
