Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend. I did, cold but good. So why Dog-Chicken? Well, I first thought of chicken for last weeks IF's topic chicken and then combined it with some illustrations inspired from Carla Sonheim's, The Art of Silliness 3 class. Carla Sonheim is also know for her popular book Drawing Lab for Mixed Media Artist which I will be running out to get this week. Anyway back to Dog-Chicken, I enjoyed creating these illustrations on their own but then... I cut, I stapled, I mixed, I matched and –– voilá. I got...
There were so many funny variations these are just a few of my favorite. This was way fun and a great exercise for ideas! A fun project to do with children too. I know I could have cut these up digitally but it was more fun physically cutting them, I'm very much a tactile person. This could make a great little book or perhaps these will become future characters? Hmmm...
Do you have a favorite?
Have you done this before?
I'd love to hear.
