Can You Dig It? by greytrousers Can You Dig It? by greytrousers
I really wanted to do something involving that bright blue with a brightish sort of orangey/yellow color. It started out as a nice, slow abstract and then...I scrambled it and lost my mind for about 30 minutes while I added random pictures of Shaft (I have no idea where I got those from), a pack of bandaids, and other obscure elements. I even got my hands on a bar of Hershey's chocolate and murdered it on the cardboard. :x There it is.

Bad photograph.

cardboard + acrylic + spray paint + latex + chocolate + chalk pastel + other paper materials

Chocolate?! Wow, real mixed media...

A curiosity, how big is that?

I believe it is about 14 x 24 inches. A fairly good size..

Those colors glow! How is this possible? They look backlit! and the bandaids look like a spine- which I really like.

We most certainly do have Cadbury Chocolates! I am most fond of the Cadbury Eggs around Easter. But Hershey's and cheap and relatively edible :) Plus, now I found out it's another tool to my art... It has many functions. :D

The title makes me think of the movie "warriors". I could have done with out the pics of shaft but it works so well here...
My favorite part of this is the 2 big drops and the 2 smaller ones under them (bottem center).
This is really good.

I honestly did enjoy making it. It does make me feel better that other people are enjoying it as well. :) Oh yes, that chocolate...after it was rubbed in all that paint and chalk, it sure was delicious.

wow, really interesting. im sure you enjoyed it and that makes it even better. the light blue adds a 3d feeling thats also superinteresting, because it brings closer (to the person looking) the part of cardboard that isnt painted and now it looks like a door, bah at least for me, dont know if im making sense but its ok. i like it.
