Mind-Monsters 5

It’s somehwat hilarious how one thought can set free dozens of others, that follow the tracks of the first.

Phase 1: “Ink-Storm” (5 minutes)
Actually just a quick, abstract ink-painting inspired by the thoughts of my mind.

Phase 2: “lurking beneath the surface” (20 minutes)
Next, I looked at the abtract painting some days after creating it and I started to see creatures in it. So I took a ballpoint pen and started to kinda “accentuate” some of them.

Phase 3: “exploding” (10 minutes)
Then I scanned it and added colours with Photoshop.

and here they are…some more mind-monsters.

Phase 2 und 3 are equal. Phase 3 is not the “end result”.

I’ve drawn eleven of those abstract ink-paitings. In the next days and weeks I’ll show monsters hiding in there.
I’m not going to give those works own, individual titles – I let them speak for themselves instead.

  1. It’s interesting how the perception differs between the b&w and the colour versions. In the b&w the eye focus first in the bottom left and follow then the monster’s swirl. In the colour version the eye is immediately catch by this big red spot and can’t be distracted of it, like the monsters, which seems to be also appealed by it.

    Personally, without any thinking consideration, I prefer the graphic effect of the b&w though.
