I know - what happened to Snoopy?!
Today's card is the 2nd one in my new monthly series:
The idea is that I will take one of my 4 children's childhood drawings
and recreate it with modern day elements!
And it's okay!
Snoopy is fine and it meant to look this way
as the intent of this creative blog series is to do EXACTLY what they did!
Once again, this artwork is by my 2nd daughter, Chrissy ~
as my reorganizing the bins landed this second from the top!
*The video will be up on my YouTube channel soon!
Here is her fabulous artwork, created in 4th/5th grade ...
I love that she had Snoopy in her classroom artwork!
She's definitely my daughter :)
I loved the bold colors choices of the vivid purple and fresh green.
If you look closely, you'll see it's actually a grid with dots
which must have taken quite some time.
It's a series of lines and dots on the lines to create this look,
which I mistook for Pointillism, one of my FAVORITE painting techniques!
I adore Georges Seurat’s masterpiece A Sunday on La Grande Jatte
and about lost my mind to see it at the Art Institute of Chicago
on a trip to Illinois!
Okay, I'm rambling and it's NOT even Pointillism!
The technique she used is similiar to comic books called Ben Day dots,
popular from Roy Lichtenstein.
And here is my card:
I don't want to give too much away from the video
but I ended up not coloring the background after all
(ooof - disaster!),
blending instead using water to create the background like hers.
I know it looks funny seeing a PLAIN card
and Snoopy just sort of chillin' and floating in the air,
but the point was to recreate it as she did - keeping it the same!
Until next month!
Thanks for stopping by!
