(and “Crazy Marion” the marionette ball jointed doll)
Since I create art pretty much daily, every now and then the ideas just aren’t flowing. What do I want to create today? A face? A new character? Am I in the mood for Pop Surrealism, Grunge, Brut, Avant Garde, Lowbrow? Am I feeling humorous, creepy, edgy, sad or just weird?
What medium do I want to use? Acrylics, pastels, or of course my solid rock, colored pencils? Do I want to create a sculpture, a piece of jewelry, a textile, pyrography, a hand colored photo or mixed media artwork?
Sculpt it, burn it, paint it or draw it? Stencil, dab, stipple, brush it, or stroke it.
I popped over to one of my internet friend’s site earlier in the month, Lily Wight’s The Arcade of Arts & Arcana site to see what she was up to. Her theme this month was “Marionettes” and I’ve been into doing some ball jointed doll, or BJD doll art of late, and thought just for fun, I would do one that is also a marionette.
