3 Paper Scrap Watercolours

All of these were done in old watercolour scrap papers I found in my room. I was lucky enough to have saved them 10 years ago. As an update in art tools: I finally bought some Arches paper from Amazon as well as a watercolour paper sketchbook (and a few other supplies). The package arrived last Friday!

Vision: Pareidolia

I have been working on this short film for a while. Mainly because crashing systems and other vicissitudes got in the way. Anyway, the vision is finally here.

Vision: The Mindroom

The post-process was done little by little. To keep myself sane, I worked whenever I had the patience to get an error on my tablet. An annoying error that would force me to start it all over again! I was using an old version of the Pixlr app.

During this constricted process I remembered how easy it could’ve been to create each image in Photoshop, but I kept struggling to blend the pixels with my thumb. Faded into everything, melting into an open space of emptiness yet reaching out.
