Stellar New Blog Banner!

As well as doing the lyric art pieces and general ogling, sycophantic Kerr shrine art, I love making banner art…either banners for the blog or/and Facebook cover art pics.

I know it’s late, and I might be seeing it for more than it is right now…the subjective element can work both ways, ie: something you think is utter crud when you made it can look brilliant the next day, week…months…year down the line. Conversely, something you think is utterly brilliant when you’ve finished can look frigging abysmal a day or two later.

On the rare occasion, it looks amazing and stays amazing. I am hoping this one is one of those, cos right now, it is looking FLIPPING MAGIC! And it will definitely be a new blog banner. Once I have access to a laptop tomorrow, it’s going up! (Some things can still only be properly achieved on a desktop frontage, which pisses me off no end!)

A Kerrsday Thursday Throwback

Aaaww. I was reminded of this little bit of shrine work from years back just a while ago. This could apply to his dad too. Well…probably to all Kerrs, no doubt.

I posted it on the wall at the time.

It didn’t originally have any words at all. It’s just I always thought I made Jim look like a superhero with the way I’d initially manipulated the image.

He is a superhero, to me. Always will be. He gave me reason to live…

Boy On Film

I upgraded one of my art apps a few days ago. The previous Prip piece was done incorporating one of the new settings now available to me. Of course I start off a new piece tonight thinking I’d use more of the new things available to me.

Nope! Much like the muse I doggedly work with…I stuck to all the settings and options I had available to me for free.

I’m an old stick-in-the-mud! Lol

I cannot wait to get my own space for painting and drumming. My own little art studio. I’ll probably freeze to death, as I envisage this thing being a glorified shed down the back of a garden somewhere in the southside of Glasgow. Soundproofed, of course – to protect peoples’ ears from the drumming and the wails of frustration as I paint away.

I am definitely from the Howard Hodgkin philosophy of art (ie: art is pain and there’s nothing enjoyable about it). It sets off my depression BIG TIME – painting…but there’s a compulsion too. And I miss it.

And I will continue the digital art. Always. It’ll be a counterbalance. The digital art *IS* joy, and therapy. It is the thing I love. Esp. when I am working on Mr Muse. How can it not be? LOOK AT HIM! Like I need more excuses. Lol
