I havn´t really had anything to show you or write so I decided not to. Instead of waisting time and just publish because of guilt I waited. I waited and waited but creativity haven´t strikes until just now. So I did a movie when i drew one of my latest figures. When I was just to uploaded I read the fine print and read that unless you upgrade to premium you can´t publish movies. So I started thinking and here is the pictures from the movie. I hope if you flip through them fast you can see how the film turned out.
Some days I just can´t wait until I get home and can continued on that picture. The one I just had to start working on the night before. I might just had a new idea or learnt a new technique that could change the way I use to look at things.
Other days it´s the exact opposite. I wake up and have absolutely NO new ideas about anything. In those times I can´t remember the last time I had flash of genius. Being a creative person is really all about being able to read your own feelings and accepting not always getting idea after idea. Having a thought of something in your head and then making it a reality. Being creative is the best feeling no matter if it´s about drawing, writing, creating music, dancing… anything that makes you happy.
” Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things”.
My new project for today was to create a header for Blue lights. With nature theme and green, turquoise and orange. Im also helping her building up her blog. What do you guys think about the header? Don´t forget to checkin the header in action on Blue lights blog.
Today is my third and last day working with the VeggieTown projekt. The VeggieTown header is done and upload to the website. The site isn´t going to be up and running before until next week. You can visit the site at: VeggiTown. I hope you have enjoyed following this project.
Happy New Year and good continued. I hope you all have had a good start on 2015 and a nice ending on 2014. Here is a few sketches I did from the train on my way home from Stockholm.
And with a little color and one and a half hour of Photoshoping my 2015 looked like this:
I really like the pastel colors and the leafs are stamps that are super easy to use.
To write the numbers of the year has started to get a tradition. I think i started in 2010 but then it looked like this.
This is one of the dresses i bought on my visit. A light yellow vintage. I found it in the second Beyond retro store we went to. We found a really good vintage guide over Stockholm on http://elsa.elle.se/stora-vintageguiden/. So if your going to Stockholm and want to find that perfect something in vintage this is the perfect guide. I think the dress I found is a real Elsa dress.
Both the dress and 2015 is drawn with one of my favorite pencils. The Copic multliner, black, 0,1.
