Pillars of Creation in
There were also photographs from the ISS of a space zinnia.
It wasn't really doing what I wanted it to do, but yet another digital image collage is born (is it really collage if no paper is involved?) in answer to an art challenge. This one is for EIM; the word of the week is, "sofa." I wanted to tackle the thing from the perspective of the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy," just without the crazy two-headed president. (I'm almost done re-reading the book!!)
I was very glad to find the links again as I had designs on the stars.
You know you can put images from Hubble to personal use, right? It's a public domain thing, since We-the-People have paid for the space program. Therefore, you get this:
A different art challenge I responded to this week is from the Diva. This week is to raise awareness of Moebius Syndrome; her son has this neurological condition. Please read her post and you'll get an understanding of what that all means. Here's my rather simple answer:
Staedler Watercolor and
Derwent Metallic Pencils
Remember creating Moebius paper strips in school? Or even better yet, going to the Museum of Science and seeing their massive Moebius sculpture? Or the Van de Graaf generator? COOL!
If you're wearing an infinity scarf, that's a Moebius! If you're a fan of Dune or the Fifth Element, that's a different Moebius. If you're my friend, Mark the sculptor, you have created several stone Moebius. And if you're a little boy nicknamed, "Artoo," that's living with Moebius.
I thank you for stopping by. If you're in the greater Phoenix area the next few weeks, I'll be hanging out at the Celebration of Fine Arts ("The BIG white tents") weekends through February 7 or thereabouts. Booth 216. FIND OUT WHY! You can email me (1xeritas@gmail dot com) to see when exactly I'm there; I'd love to see you!
Meanwhile, the twinchie word of the week is, "MONEY!" That's what I'm doing next! How about you?!
