When you really try hard at something it is truly amazing what you can accomplish. Take this sketch. OK, it looks simple, but I spent hours searching deep within myself for the meaning of me. I stripped away flesh, bone, hair and everything recognisable to reveal just my essence. This is how I see myself. A moon head on sticks balancing precariously in blissful ignorance of the fragility of my situation.
Notice how one eye is deliberately slightly larger than the other - representing the hemispheres of the brain and my right side predominance. The smile too lacks symmetry - a focus on my wry sense of humour.
I think I might experiment with this new direction further, maybe exploring the cycles of the moon with a crescent head or lengthening the sticks; dotted lines perhaps? I think it's the birth of something truly special and unique. I will call it FRAIL LOOP, a take on physical impossibility in a metaphysical playground of dogma. This is me becoming intellectual, upping my game...
Sharing for Sunday Sketches on this, the first day of a new month also known as ... please think about THE DATE....
Some time after I originally published.
OK, I 'fess up. This was supposed to be an April Fool... but I can see how maybe you could take it seriously... as the joke was really me taking myself far too seriously... FRAIL LOOP is an anagram by the way...
I am a writer, an artist and a dreamer. I am on a journey following my heart. It promises to take me to some incredibly exciting places. Won't you join me?
The latest trip is one you can all join. We're going in search of our Muses and when we find them we're going to have so much fun!
Come on over to my creative business - The Wright Brain Stuff - and harvest all the creativity you need from the depths of your imagination!
