I kept hearing Grace Slick in the furthest reaches of my background memories. It was a nice sensation and wished the cafe had a sentiment, a timeline for everyone.
What to do this winter, what to investigate; I accept a linear challenge. If sleep never arrives, I will have enjoyed too many cups and full-loaded Micron.
Snowball hands or will climate change give me a tan?
Early this morning, I was inspired by Malin Ellisdotter’s post, “Autumn Lips” (https://malinhphotography.wordpress.com/2015/10/27/autumn-lips/?c=12050#comment-12050). It touched my elegant sensibility, aesthetic and surrealist memory.
All day long, I thought of this image and decided to re-interpret for myself. Fortunately for her image’s integrity, I veered left and got out of her woods. None the less, the creativity that landed early, enabled a looseness and convenience for my presentation.
Thank you Malin for your image and inspiration. One admission though. Her black and white image became a looking glass impression to my black.
After illustrating Handstand the other night, I wanted to find more of the motion in my hands. I wanted to see more, see the curves. Since I am right-handed, my left did all the work. Hands are an amazing piece of architecture and loved the impressions and sculptured motion I saw. No wonder they figure prominently in my imagination when I think of friends and former loves.
Everyone leaves a hand print for our dreams.
Amazon heats her burning waste,
she’s tickling time with paint squint eyes.
With a sinkhole grip of uncertain hold;
she just babble talk babble, babble just blah,
blah and blab.
She dropped the room flat cold –
down so down.
Stole the show, priced the surprise;
little to show and much too nosey,
mind your business, it’s all go go.

It was suggested to me that I am “overworking” my illustrations. Very agreeable, I have resolved to minimize my line and focus on the basics – less color, more suggestion.
Sometimes, in an effort to create, my brain says more is better. Maybe I need a 12-step illustration program.
