The Art and Artist
Today my brand spanking new Wacom digitizer tablet arrived. For those who don't know, it's a big flat thing that let's you use a mouse, or a pen, to navigate your computer. The main usage is for artwork, illustration and photo editing. Ever tried to highlight a specific pixel or two with your mouse? Worse, have you ever tried to draw a circle or straight line with your mouse? It's clumsy and nearly impossible.
With the tablet, you can choose different effects and pen or brush types. If you erase, your paper doesn't have a hole in it afterwards. Your monitor is your canvas.
So I doodled and played, and then toyed with some astrological designs. Wanted to get some feedback. Would you buy this on a tshirt? Or mug? Or put it on your wall? I started with, of course, Scorpio, because y'all know the world revolves around me. I just hide it well. ;)
My natural bent as an artist is very fine pen detail, or cartoony things. I am not the type to make anything really on purpose look like it's equivalent in reality. I can't look at a bowl of fruit and draw something that realistically looks like a bowl of fruit. Hope you enjoy the abstract.
If I get good feedback, I will work on each sign and post as I finish them. Hit me with your requests!
