To hell with it
So what do you do when you've just spent entirely too much time and entirely too much effort trying to draw something a little different, a little out of your comfort zone and all that happens is that it sticks it's tongue out at you?
Put on your best "I'm really a 4 year old" attitude.....
....take out a sharpie marker, and GO!
Sometimes a little rip and a tear and a sharpie marker and some 'devil may care' can do just the trick.
Ettore Sottsass has written about how he and his friends started the Memphis group - as an experiment, playing with colors and materials. They wanted to see how they could communicate how they were feeling.
He believes that we should experience the world more like children - through the senses rather than the mind. "What's truly important is to have an open mind and no borders. Then you can do almost anything."
Sounds good to me.
