Sometimes my art ideas come from an issue that I'm struggling with personally. Usually I am just going through life as usual, listening to my normal inner dialogue and I drift into a daydream and that's when the idea for a piece of art comes to me. Lately all my art ideas have been falling into two categories: Glorious Ordinary, dealing with the interplay between the mundane and the magical, and That Sinking Feeling, with the sinking feeling one gets in their gut when something terrible happens (see my About page). But there is a third category, the Wacky Dreamstuff. Occasionally as I daydream, I will go deeper into the dream part of my brain, where nothing makes sense and weird inexplicable things get mixed up together as they often do in sleeping dreams. This is where the sketch pictured above comes from. I call it Lips in Space, and I'm imagining a backdrop of outer space behind those lips. For some reason, though I made this sketch months ago, the idea is still popping into my head from time to time. I figure it's resonating with my for a reason, and it's just intriguing me, so I'm just going to go ahead and make a more developed work from it. Stay tuned for Lips in Space.
