so… I thought the bunny upload of the day should reflect that.
bunnies and pollen
I finally got the tablet up and running so I did this on Gimp. It’s fun finding out what the program will do within the framework of a task. I got the idea about pollen from the way the brush tool worked. That and not wanting to keep doing the thing over.
For the bunnies, it’s the same doodling effort. Still starting from the ears and making that and the head in one line. For these I used more than one line because I wanted to work the tablet a bit more. The baby bunnies was a one-line exercise, though.
OK. Off to blow my nose again.
I could have kept messing with this forever in trying to get it “right”. Everything is reminding me of spiders (still).
I was inspired by Ed Emberley (who Melanie mentioned in her previous post) and tried working with shapes in Photoshop. Reminded me very much of playing with a grown-up version of Colorforms.
I had no premeditated message and it took me a while to figure out what the bunny wanted to say. In fact, I didn’t even realize how the title of this post would come into play until just this red hot minute. Making an ecological statement was the farthest thing from my conscious mind when I started messing with the shapes. I had no idea what to title this and so I started with Go Green and a big shrug. Then adding This Easter sort of materialized. Now it makes almost too much sense.
I swear there are fairies in my head.
