Ya know how you see figures and creatures in marble, wood grains and shadows? Below is an example of a sketchbook entry where I’m actively pulling out what I see, in an effort to allow others to see the same thing.
I’ll try to clarify:
The first two images are from my new sketchbook. I’ve pasted in three discarded pieces of a failed monotype print. Before fastening to the sketchbook, I turned these discards every which way and discovered this magical scene from an imaginary children’s book. I inked in some details. Then with a little digital enhancement, I’ve tried to flesh out the scene, but not too much-trying to retain the magic I saw in the first place. But, I’ve no idea if anyone else sees what I do.
Can ya see it? What do you see?
