Arty Interests from 11/3/15

15This is a rundown of my artistic life as of late.

Last month, I made a few necklaces to practice using crimps and crimp covers. I was obsessed with jewelry for a few weeks. Then, I realized that I hated all of my beads. I didn’t want to make anymore pieces with them. I considered gathering them up and trying to sell them as a miscellaneous lot on eBay. I may do that if I ever get up the energy to organize said beads.

My attention abruptly shifted to mixed media art. I became obsessed. I made this:

Mixed media on canvas.

After that I found an iPhone/iPad app called Glitché. It lets  you create “Glitch Art” from your photos.

Glitch art is the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, such as artifacts and other “bugs”, by either corrupting digital code/data or by physically manipulating electronic devices (for example by circuit bending).” – Wikipedia

I went a little crazy. Did a lot of posting to Instagram. Then I found an app called Waterlogue. It makes your images look like watercolor paintings.  Here are samples of each.


Waterlogue 1.1.4 (1.1.4) Preset Style = Rainy Format = 6" (Medium) Format Margin = None Format Border = Straight Drawing = Technical Pen Drawing Weight = Heavy Drawing Detail = Medium Paint = Natural Paint Lightness = Normal Paint Intensity = Less Water = Tap Water Water Edges = Blurry Water Bleed = Intense Brush = Fine Detail Brush Focus = Everything Brush Spacing = None Paper = Watercolor Paper Texture = Medium Paper Shading = Medium Options Faces = Enhance Faces

And now, I think that’s out of my system for the time being.

I’m back into jewelry and  taking a course on Curious from the O’Neil Sisters. Here’s one of their videos on YouTube:

I understand the wrapped loop now. Wire is my new obsession.

That’s where I am. All over the place.
