Images: February 2008 Archives
In what might be the second of my sidewalks series, I present to the readers and accidental visitors of this site a picture I took perhaps only one or two weeks ago. It was an auspicious find for Chinese New Year, and the full meaning of it hasn't yet been made clear to me. Perhaps I am posting here in the hope that others might see what this is and thus help me to achieve a higher understanding.
What I do know know is that this object was there and, in being there, it wielded a kind of power over many, if not most, who passed near it. Perhaps if I held one or more advanced degrees in the more useful of the arts and sciences, I might know why it held such power -- power disproportionate to its size. For, truly, it did seem to radiate, right there on the sidewalk, a weight not unlike that of one or more of the taller skyscrapers which we locals secretly desire strange unions and associations with.
Nothing gentle here.
Can't say this is my absolute favorite, but like other IADs past, it will have its fans. These things just pop out my head. I can't help it.
Illustration a Day 2 continues with this, another Illustration Friday entry. The subject of this week's IF was theory. I decided to ignore the obvious takes on the idea of theory and go for a bit more abstract slant on the topic. It may come out a little more mythological than scientific, but I'm happy with the result. This one's definitely best appreciated in it's embiggened form (click to see the biggun'):
Created once again in Adobe Illustrator CS3.
I do not enjoy eating green soup.
For the past two nights, I've been away from home. This has forced me to draw using my laptop. Can you remember me mentioning my feelings about green soup? I feel the same way about drawing using my laptop. It's just not made for IAD. I need my giant LCD.
This Illustration a Day created with the support of: Adobe Illustrator Creative Suite 3.
Illustration a Day gnaws into my head and poos another victory:
I almost collaged this one. I drew a couple quick sketches and contemplated using a mix of Illustrator, Photoshop, and pencil and paper, but I couldn't find my Dixon Ticonderoga, so I decided to go fully AI CS3 yet again. It's hard to trust a drawing that is birthed from the tip of a Sanford product of any caliber.
By the way, did you know Dixon Ticonderogas are no longer made in the good ol' USA? Mexico. Weird.
