Drawing challenge: The Trickster

May 15, 2015

So here’s a little oracle to inspire you. It’s a little magical, but it’s just outside our mundane world of practicalities. You know you can almost see it, almost touch it as you go about your life, but you always sense its presence, and, when you come to any creative endeavour, it’s always there waiting for you.

All you have to do to release the power is dial the right combination.

And as luck would have it, I’m here to give it to you:

Are you ready? Good!

Behind the scenes of this trickster drawing challenge:

Art: The old front of something like a safe or safety deposit drawer, picked up at an antique market, which has a thick glass window and a support for the window, which seemed just the perfect area to slip in a long piece of watercolour paper with four panels, haphazardly collaged, painted in acrylics and gilded with gold leaf. Then mucked about with in Photoshop to type out the messages.

    Creativity reigns supreme with you.

    I’m still laughing re the fish. I shall use that quote the next time someone says to me – go with the flow.

    You’ll be having a fantastic weekend – enjoy all moments.
