Dusting off the Book Shelf
Okay so I have finished this picture ages and ages ago ( around October last year. Feels like decades almost) and thought I better post it up here. I spent about 4 weeks on that one at the time and I think it's worked out alright! I'm not having so many mixed feelings about it as I typically do with older works, but it really sealed the deal that patience and actual hard work on a piece does really pay off in the end. I'm currently working on another right now, and has been sort of 4 weeks running already. I'm not so sure about this one, if it will have the same kind of completed feel as this one as it's a much softer and more subtle picture. Part of me feels like I've upped my game but another part of me looks at the new work and just... Feel like it's maybe a bit too plain. Part of me wonders though if that's just because I want some "wow" factor in it or not. I always have that feeling of "less is more" and I'm just not so sure that always translates so well with an audience. Especially being that my last picture was all wam-blam with colours popping out of its ears. Anyway! This piece posted here is now available at my society6 shop now!
So check it out!
In other news, now that I have more time for myself once again I'm going to have another go at reading these lovely things :
I keep looking at them and I know I should read them. I've started off with the Divine Comedy, which I already wrote about previously as I started reading it when I received it for my birthday.
Not too much else going on. I bought a screen calibrator this way I can know how my prints are going to come out. The whole thing is pretty convoluted and complicated, but I think I've managed to understand it now. I've got a few other things on the matter I want to read and get familiar with yet. I will actually be writing a little tid bit about what I know and explaining it pretty cut and dry for some others who were asking about it all. Anyway, I'm going to run off. I have a headache the size of...something.
Not sure if I mentioned about Flying Lotus before, but here's a lovely track :
Flying Lotus - Phantasm (ft. Laura Darlington)
Have a lovely one.
