I have been home sick with the flu for the past few days, so my time at the computer has been far less then usual. I tried doing some sketching on the sofa but generating ideas in my current state proved to be pretty cumbersome, what with a cloudy and stuffed-up head.
However, I did manage to sit at the computer intermittently and created the images above, entitled Ancient of Days. These are experiments utilizing images from nature and various gradient overlays presented in a Polaroid format. I normally have a general idea of what I want to create before sitting at the computer, but these are exceptions to my typical process where I just sat down and started.
Included are images of trees, clouds, aurora borealis, smoke, sunsets, grass . . . the topmost image even has a mushroom cloud in there. I really enjoyed the release of creating these pieces on the fly, and would like to use the Ancient of Days platform to generate more experiments in the future.
