This is a composite of several blob drawing sessions. Blob drawing is a simple little exercise that can really get the creativity flowing- basically you scribble out a blob with a marker, then turn it into something afterwards. I find it endlessly amusing to do these little sketches because the results can be so off the wall. I also enjoy doing these because it reminds me that you can create a face out of almost any thing. I see faces in almost everything around me- if I look at the textures on the wall, I can start to see faces. Patterns on the carpet- same thing. I guess it's a lot like looking at the clouds and seeing things there. The creative mind is a crazy thing for sure.
In other news, I finally booked a hotel and got tickets to the San Diego Comic Con. I am beyond excited to be going- I have always wanted to check this out, and early this year I decided to make plans to go. My wife and my son and my father-in-law are going to come along, and I am sure it will be a great trip. Are any of you talented blogging artists gonna be there? I would love to have the opportunity to meet some of you in person, so if anyone else is gonna be there, let me know so we can hook up and say hello!
Thanks to everyone that takes time to stop in here and look at my artwork... This blogging thing is very inspiring and helps keep my enthusiasm for artwork going!
