13  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / The Willipus on: March 31, 2011 11:21:05 AM
Another product of my stash-only/one-evening Christmas challenge! Acrylic paints and ink on illustration board (approx 11x17") . I picked up a 3-pack of illustration boards for my Zombie valentine last year, and i keep forgetting how awesome this stuff is to work on (other than it warps quite a bit, but framing solves that nicely). The colours looks so fresh and bright, and it takes lots of washes without falling apart. The Willipus is for Nven's baby William, who was dubbed The Willipus when he was but a wee little guy. Hes still technically a wee little guy, but man is he growing fast Cheesy

Also: octopi are fun to draw!

hehe i'm too impatient to work on projects for more than a few days, but this was pretty fast even for me. I'm glad it turned out Smiley

This is a 5x7" scratchboard of a red fox. I was worried itd look like an arctic fox without the colour, but definitely not poofy enough Wink

I would have liked to work on the paws more, but this was part of a Christmas challenge i gave myself: stash-only supplies and an upper limit of one evening crafting time per item (btw, we celebrated Christmas in march this year with our friends to give everyone some more crafting time and a break from family Christmases). Overall it turned out well, and I enjoyed working within these constraints. It was very... calming(?)... to not have the option to fuss with little details for days.

yes, i did - thanks!! Cheesy
that was the hardest part by far... i found it really challenging to draw something without islands (i think that's what they're called?). my brain did not want to compute Smiley

Its sort of become a tradition over the last couple of years for me and my guy to make each other valentines. We're like an old married couple: i help him find the craft supplies he needs from my stash, then we hole up at opposite ends of the living room and work, occasionally uttering threats and hinting at dire consequences should someone peak.

This year I decided i really wanted to try papercutting. I don't think i used the best paper (printer paper?) and my blade was kinda dull, but i think it turned out pretty sweet for my first try. it was also way more fun than i expected.

baby, i love your brains

I'd like to find an oval frame for it, but for now i just cut a paper one Smiley

I gave him his valentine and he loved it... but flipped it over, looked between the layers and double-checked the envelope... then gave me sad puppy eyes, quietly commenting that there was no a message. I didn't realized the shortfall of my concept until that exact moment: whereas he' d given me an incredibly cute valentine with really thoughtful coupons (presented as a mini-treasure hunt through messages left in my gmail calendar, cellphone and in my purse), my project kind of lacked... sentiment.

so on to valentine #2: The Message. Ive wanted to try doing a typography type poster for ages. Turns out typography layouts are hard and take way longer than youd expect. go figure.

I'm pretty sure he like the second one better Wink
