A large part of almost any kind of creative work is the practice of it. And as a multimedia artist, sometimes in exercising one creative muscle, others are neglected.
I won't bother to take a look to verify (I'll leave that to the reader's curiosity), but I can say with certainty that it has been over a year since I have updated this blog. It is now 2023, and many things have happened and changed in my life since my last post.
Today I'm working on a commissioned educational display involving a Venn diagram. After I compiled everything I needed to include, inspiration hit, and a clear direction emerged. I did a quick scribbled sketch, to help me work out the general layout. I'm piecing it together now, and will share the finished project later since this jumbled mess is surely only clear to me, lol.
The finished, hand drawn piece, which included dimensional components in clay and felt, and removable velcro elements, for interactive use. The intended audience is a 4th grade class. This project was done within the client's limited window of time and budgetary resources. Given greater resources, I would probably have created a digital design, had it professionally printed, and added the dimensional elements to the print. But it was fun to create!
