I-Fri: Play



I've been sick for the last few days and having serious brain malfunctions. "Play" - great word - so many meanings - but I couldn't think of one good image. It took until the fog lifted today to come up with this silly one.

I'm really having fun playing with the sponge. and I think I've decided that I like the big thick black lines - as long as they're broken up a little bit it doesn't make it feel too 'heavy.' I need to try to stay loose when I'm doing them though - it's hard because it's the last thing I do so I don't want to screw it up at the last stage and I get a bit more precious about it. But it's what will give it the feeling of being 'loose and free' or tight and constricted so I need to keep working on that. ramble ramble ramble... sorry so I'm not totally well yet...

Hehehe, I can hear this one! Like a Jamaican tin drum.

I like the way you used the thick black line more at the bottom, it helps to give it weight in the right spots. You're right, it works really well when it's broken up a bit.
