Painting on Carboard is Fun!!!

Here's a nice piece I made this weekend:

I always have this idea of painting on cardboard boxes and never do, so as a result I have a ton of cardboard boxes sitting around my apartment. This weekend, I actually sat down and got to it, and I'm quite pleased with the results. The combination of black and white on brown, is both mellow and high contrast, and carboard has a natural texture and grain to it. It also has a very impermanent and gritty feel, which is another thing I really like. I'm going to have to make point to do this more often.

Feeling Crabby?

Here's a monster I created recently. I was playing with shapes and arrived at the shell, and then built the body out of the shell. I don't know if it really works that well as a concept design. The shell is far too large and ungainly for a creature with such spindly limbs. I imagine this creature would merely fall over. Maybe I'll try again later
