today i drew a picture

sunday's picture, 2012, copic markers and sharpies on canvas, 35 x 45cm

I don’t know what it is about Sundays but that’s when I usually get the urge to experiment and goof off. But I think my strongest works stem from experimentation and a sense of play. And this was a lot of fun. Especially with Instagram in my life.

it all begins with an idea gone awry. i tried transferring my drawings via carbon paper onto the treated canvas but that was a bit of a failure

it sort of worked in the beginning, but weakened progressively

i love carbon paper. it's beautiful in its own right

especially after use

i had no idea what i was doing. it's not a pleasant place to be

i liked this face but it wasn't in the style i wanted. it was too serious for my playful mood

orange, blue and a hand

things get a little messy

additional faces. the exercise was to relax and stop caring about composition, color and aesthetic sense

i put my markers through hell on this one. that's ok, i'm sure they understand

more and more faces. i'm obsessed

it's almost finished

a little fun with black and white

it's done. and now i have yet one more of my paintings/drawings hanging around the house. the situation is explosive

the important thing is that i had fun and my sister yasmine has eight more ladies to keep her company at night

disaster made beautiful by the removal of color and sound

Let me know what you think
