Using My Clothes As A Canvas
My working jeans are gradually getting covered in spots of paint etc, so I decided to detract from this by drawing on them. This was partially inspired by Maggie Stiefvater’s Dream Thieves ARC contest, hence the raven (oh yes, this is my entry. I should probably mention that). Also, it seems like the sort of thing that Blue would do. I don’t know where the dragon came from - I just like dragons, although this is different to my usual dragons. In fact, everything about this is different to my usual style - the medium and canvas have provoked something unusual in me. Oh yes, and I did the drawing whilst wearing the jeans. I feel this is important, as it meant getting to grips with upside-down and sideways-ness.
It’s a work in progress - the dragon’s body actually twists all the way around the leg to end somewhere near my ankle. I can’t decide whether I want to colour-in the raven more, or whether it will look too heavy if I do that. I’m interested to see how it looks after a few washes - I’ve used sharpies so it should be permanent, but I’m thinking a bit of a fade would look good.
By the way, yes I am obviously aware that I haven’t been on here for quite some time. Sorry about that. My creative efforts have been poured into writing, including reviews of some of the books I’ve devoured, which are readable on my book blog Escape into Words if you’re interested.
That is all. For now.
