I’m in bed on a late Tuesday morning and I’m playing with an illustration in my Brighton Sketchbook on Photoshop.
I’m prepping it for print, so these kinds of colours. I like the idea of this style for a chapter in my graphic novel.
All of my ambitions are things that take people many, many years to achieve.
I was thinking about thirtine and this animal form while i photoshopped. Which makes it a co-creation.
I was listening to an Esther Hicks video – I always learn something new from listening to the same stuff. I like to notice new things about my favourite stuff.
[Edited Wednesday 8th May 2019: to add: the children’s book “The Rainbow Fish” must’ve inspired this too. I’ve only ever seen it on bookshelves. Apparently it was written by a person called Marcus Pfister. I don’t own a copy.]
I occasionally have moments in which things sort of just sit with me and resonate and this morning it was that we are floating on a stream. The guys in System of a Down said something similar about waterfalls. It’s like – when you play 2D games and you sometimes want to go back and do something – to fix something, like not-bipping your head on the question mark with an extra life in it cos you’ll really need that extra life on your next level. A lot of sega games wouldn’t let you run backwards. The idea of open world exploration is probably, to the thought forms that explore those dimensions, insane.
