Loving this class so far! It's been super helpful (and a lot of fun).
Here's what I ended up with putting together my mood board:
Some themes/patterns in my work: travel/vacation, cats, nostalgia, femininity, romance, Europe. And visible brush strokes, pattern, abstraction/flattening.
For the "me on a plate" exercise, I painted with gouache, my preferred medium.
1. Something my 6-year-old self and current self would love as a tattoo (cat) + draw on a core memory (trip to Seville, Spain):
2. Pulling inspo from one of my fav contemporaries (Kate Pugsley) + a vignette that captures the everyday (grocery shopping):
3. Inspiration from another medium (the movie Aladdin) + self-portrait:
Populate your world:
Excited to continue the class! Thanks Andy!
