Play Time

I just bought the book "Living Out Loud, ActivitiesTo Fuel A Creative Life" by Keri Smith. You can check out her blog at Wish Jar. The first activity listed is:
1. Doodle wildly (try new colors or techniques)
so I grabbed a new sketchbook to start my journey and doodled.
I used oil pastels, watercolors, and sharpie marker and then I scanned it and opened it in Photoshop and altered it four ways and pasted them together. Here is the result. The one in the upper right corner is the original.
As I was doodling, I listened to an interview with Jafabrit on Dirty Footprints Studio Talk. I like to keep both sides of my brain busy.

I have ordered "Wreck this Journal" but it hasn't come in yet.
I'm trying to give my creativity a kick in the keester. (sp?)

Real nice composition, I like that you are not afraid of colors or new things, that's what makes an artist break the mold. : )
