Liquid Media

Two ideas about liquid.

First, in 2015, I used the Waterlogue App to turn photos of food and drink into “watercolors”. I did it every day for a #100dayProject Instagram challenge and went way beyond the 100.

Second, today I used real watermedia (watery gouache) in another app that I usually use to convert my day job outfit textiles into circular compositions AKA #tinyplanets.

These were both originally posted on Instagram, but I like the Archive feature on Tumblr better for finding old Instagram posts.

About Me

amb_9block

This is one of those #artistVSart blocks that flooded Instagram a few months ago. I made the above to introduce myself to a Facebook group.
My various creative facets!

Explanation and links, left to right, top to bottom:

  1. Fluevog shoe repeats. I’ve completed two A-Z challenges (2017, 2018) using these as a theme. Which means I have 52 possible artworks to sell on my Print on Demand sites — Redbubble, Society6, and Spoonflower.
  2. Big Orange Cloud, pastel on paper. See more pastels on my art website.
  3. #dailytruck series — you know it well!
  4. Selfie, fashion sketch. I will be showing a bunch of these in July in Riverside, CA.
  5. Selfie (the format of #artVSart was to put a selfie in the middle of one’s artwork).
  6. ’70’s silkscreen, recolored for today.
  7. Syd Straw, ink drawn from life
  8. Raspberry Jam, waterlogue. I make it. I make art with it.
  9. Upcycled tee shirt weaving. The start of a renewed obsession, weaving.

Tech note and query: I published a Photo Challenge post on my [WordPress] art website’s blog and it wouldn’t link up to the challenge page. Anyone have tips? Is it the wrong structure on the website? I also lost the “Like” star, and I think that’s the fault of the template I chose. Sigh.

#AtoZchallenge 2018 Exit Ramp

It’s time for what the April A to Z Blogging Challenge crew call the Reflection post.
Where I contemplate how my A-Z went et al.

To put it succinctly, April was a busy month.

To go into specifics:
3 blog challenges: A-Z Trucks here, A-Z Fluevog Shoes there, and a fake journaling project that this year I only posted to a private Facebook group.
Not to mention my usual 2 day jobs and a burgeoning obsession with weaving.

Most of the truck posts were completed in February and March, which made all the other activities easier to complete. I also did Sunday posts, because, why not.

I’ll now copy what I wrote on the Fluevog Conclusion because I’m feeling lazy:
A-Z, it was good.
They had Google Doc spreadsheets, they were good.
I met some new blogging buddies, that was good.
I didn’t have time to visit many new blogs. Not so good, on my part.

Big thanks to the A-Z Team for coming up with a great new format for the links and helpful tips on the A-Z Blog. You made the ride much smoother this year!
