Day 46: New Glasses= A Whole New World

Day 46: Face it. What can you do with a face- yours or someone else’s? This doesn’t have to be face painting; you could use food or something else to decorate it, or try modeling it into a new shape with hands or tape and documenting it. 

Running five days late on this I decided to be inspired by today’s events.

Got new glasses. How I feel: 

So nice to have glasses that are smudge and scratch free! 😀

I added the hipster glasses (although my new glasses are definitely NOT hipster) in Pixlr.

Day 49: Art with Salt

Day 49’s assignment was: “Be a minimalist today. Work with only white materials. Try working white on white for a real challenge.”

I was inspired by this post on 9gag and by this video to play around with salt today:


This is the first time I’ve actually attempted to make anything with salt and for a background I used a black t-shirt (mistake: the material make it difficult to move the salt around without bouncing it all over the place!)

I decided to start of simple and then possibly work my way up to a masterpiece as the Joker salt image. One day in the future….






Day 52: Man drawn upside down

Day 52’s assignment was: “Work upside down. Create something in such a way that you have to rotate it 180 degrees to display/see it when it is finished.”

I wasn’t sure what to make with this so I turned to the all powerful google. I found this interesting slideshow that explained how drawing upside down not only improves one’s observational skills, but also shifts brain activity from left side to right. Furthermore, it helps the artist see lines connecting to one another, not just the shape as a whole.

Although I don’t often draw things, I decided to give it a go. My first attempt was to re-create an image of a chair. The proportions were off when I turned it the right way round, so I decided to draw something a little easier.

Using the picture on Slide 11 as the basis for my drawing I got to work.

Definitely was more work to attempt to draw this upside down. The result wasn’t half bad (considering I rarely draw).
