YOU:create

So, I've missed the last couple YOU:create's because I've been busy, and I just haven't been able to make something creative! But I finally did one again this week.

It's an artwork that I had to do for my art class, and the entire time I was working on it, I thought it would be a good thing to use for this week!



It might be a little difficult to see, but clicking on it should make it bigger. The whole idea for this artwork was a summer theme as kind of a close to summer :( The background is a summer still-life that my art teacher set up. There is a bucket, a bottle of bubbles, and a flip-flop. Then I wrote over top of it the words, summer time. The background is all black and white, and the words kind of bring out the color, since I only colored the sections of the objects that fell inside one of the letters. Like I said, it is EXTREMELY hard to see. And even in real life it is a little abstracted and you really have to think about it while looking at it! But I had a fun time creating it, which is what this whole YOU:create thing is all about :)

Love the way you thought to color only the parts under the letters. Makes me want to try out the idea... Thanks for sharing
