This Weeks Theme: WE BRING THE PAINT

Well as you can see by the title (…you can read right??) I’m putting down that dumb silly pencil and picking up the finger paints….er uhhh i mean just paints….with a brush………(ᵃⁿᵈ ᶠᶦⁿᵍᵉʳˢ).

MOVING ON….lets see if i’m any better at painting than i am at drawing. (SPOILER: probably not)

Shameless Plugs (YAAYY!): Insta: RareSightingsPhotography —-no not the wedding photographer, I dont know how he can call himself rare, every photographer and their mother does weddings

Experimentation with color. I can’t remember what all that mess is at the bottom.

If you’ve ever wondered what the most pretentious way to eat cereal looks like (oh, you didn— heha, yeah me neither * sweating profusely *)

I know it may seem like it, but NO i’m not that shit at drawing faces, i drew his face while never looking at the paper, and NO this isn’t an assignment for an art-100 class. Pbbbtt who do you think i am, Rare Sigh— …….* runs away *

--Making--(something anyone can do!)

Zoe Vidgoff

Branching out into new mediums can allow new and unexpected conclusions! One can layer colored pencils on top of ink and marker, to highlight the subjects of your masterpiece. And yes, even you are making masterpieces. Believe in your unlockable potential!

—The first step is to let go on any expectation. This work of art-to-be is a little babe and you are better off to not impose strict and hard guide lines to its development. And like real children, with minds and desires unique to them, they develop inside and outside those parental expectations. Imagine the piece is an entity and with it, work collaboratively.

Give yourself a break and learn to enjoy the making without judgement to the eventual outcome.

—Step #2 locate some materials. You can go traditional with paper and pens, pencil, ink and whatnot. Or think outward into nature and recognize all as a form of art.

Work abstractly and loose, because each stroke is a non-verbal expression of your inner landscape. And it is of paramount importance that the individual is understanding themselves. Allow the art to guide you.

—Step #3 Reflection. Observe without judgement the finished piece and relish in the glory that is you. You are witnessing a mirror image of the impossibly dynamic and varied inner landscape that is you!

Mirth and Merriment to you all,

Savage Bliss

Digital -VS- Analog, an artist's perspective

Zoe Vidgoff

We live in a world where technology bleeds into any industry and creation. Art is no exception and entire genres of art have sprouted out of using the computer. Until recently, I stayed away from digitizing out of principal. I’m an analog artist, I would tell myself, I work on paper and canvas and walls outside. What need do I have for digital media and programs like PhotoShop?

This year I decided to do something new. That very thing I dreaded and pushed against: drawing on the computer! And to my surprise, I enjoy it, truly!

How it compares to mediums I’ve come to be so fond: there are mechanical advantages like mirroring and Ctrl-Z to undo my mistakes. Gone are the days of coloring outside the lines or having to live with an unexpected color clash. Paper has a finality to it that digital work does not. Layer on top of layer, lighten and manipulate, alter and stretch. Digital medium has unearthed a world of possibilities for today’s creative.

And possibly the most exciting innovation is the proximity to animation from even the most novice experimentation into digital art. With any luck, that’s where I am headed next, my friends!

Stay tuned for much and more,

From the Mistress of Merriment,

Savage Bliss
