Inside the Circus - Creative Jump Start, Basquiat by Tori Weyers


HOWDY... from Joi... at the ranch! 

 It's a sunny 70 degrees here and it's fun to enjoy the reprieve from the cold.  For sure, our cold is mild compared to most your winters!

This is another project from Creative Jump Start at N*Studio with Nathalie Kalbach.  I have learned soooo much. 

This little project is wild and crazy... but that's good for me.
Abstract URBAN Art is difficult so it's a good challenge!
This is again in the "style" of Jean-Michel Basquiat. 

NOW... seriously... get ready to laugh...or at least giggle....
Here is my "Inside the Circus" CHAIN MAN!!!  
He is on a 8x10 canvas.

Since this is a paid workshop, I can't go into all the processes but I have pictures for you to see how fun it was to just "be creative"! 
Following the video tutorial by Tori Weyers.  

Those of you that know me... know that I love looking for objects in my work!  Do you see the little man coming through in the doodles below????

Yes - there he is so I drew him in as I saw him on the canvas!

By the way... he has a crown because it is a symbol found in much of Jean-Michel Basquiat's work. 

Now some close-ups of the finished piece!
Let me assure you.... my family thinks I have lost my mind seeing this piece!!!  It's all about the learning and growing... like my word for 2016... Burgeon!!!!  

Thanks bunches for taking time to stop by!
I have several things ready to blog so maybe you can see them all at once while you are here!!!  

Big Hugs to you all!! j.

Hello Joi, Saw you've added the Google Friend Connect, so I'm your newest follower on that. This is so unusual, and while I'm not 'artsy' at all, I did enjoy seeing the processes & colors that led you to this creation. It's funky & colorful, and I loved that you could 'see' King Chainman taking shape as you worked. That's a true artist (which I am not!) I do love color though. What fun you had, and I admire your courage at embracing your inner artist! Hang this one with pride! TFS
