Something else out of my sketchbook. I'm going to use this sometime or somewhere. I just don't know right now. Actually I was inspired by a notebook that my friend Nancy gave to me at a graphic artist's meeting I belong to. It was fun just being free and drawing the swirlies as I listened in on the meeting.
When I saw this week's word, I remembered my animation classes where we used "primitives" to begin our movies. I know all you 3-d guys know where I'm coming from. I wanted to combine the freestyle curving lines of the juggler with these geometric "primitive" shapes (the red and yellow things). Hey, if you didn't know what a primitive was in animation, now you do. You've learned a new art term!
Bet you can't guess what movie I just saw recently that inspired me on this one. Maybe you can. Here's a hint: it's after a big gray guy with an extremely long nose. If you guessed "Horton Hears a Who", you're right! Have a good week everyone.

I put this sketch together pretty quickly in order to make the weekly deadline. It's been a busy week but I finally found some time as I listened to my daughter's high school band play during her open house tonight. I'm experimenting a bit more with composition: taking everything away from the center. This time the little ice cream scoop was the focus with everything radiating out from that. Hope it worked. See you next week.
