inks and collage on w/c paper, 10 X 11″
up to monkey business
down with grown up’s worries
we’re here to play
pick a plastic flower
do a duck walk,
pound our chests
and let out a rousing chorus of
Toward the Fun!
I had to stop wearing costumes when i got home from camp, but I couldn’t stop painting them. My clown heart is still warm. So we have been doing kookie self portraits again in Muse group, and believe me, this one is quite tame compared to the student pieces!
The method? If you have the Photo Booth software on your computer, set it on the Comic Book filter effect and ham it up for the camera – like you did with your friends in those photo booths that printed out a strip of blurry pics. Size it to fit your paper, print it out and glue it onto your paper. Then start painting and collaging til you can see one of your many alter egos taking shape. This way you avoid trying to make pretty with the image and risking one of those uncomfortable self image – reality collisions!
