Puppy Chop Up!

Don't ask me what came over me tonight whilst I was just sitting around for 5 whole minutes!!! I decided to try drawing out a puppy from a coloring book (belonging to the grands) by Lisa Frank, and cutting him up a bit to make a sort-of Picasso-ish thing out of him...well, I got his head chopped up really well, I thought, but the rest of him needs more chopping. I was going to color him in some way, but then I liked the white on white and the outlining of all the bits of paper after I glued him back together. I tried hard to think of another place I could stick his tail, but my mind won't let me go to crazy. This really aggravates me. I wish I could be wild. I'm going to try this experiment nightly until I can be happy with it. Just a little something different in a few moments of time I catch here and there...

I did something very much like this back in college, only it was a bicycle. Maybe it would be easier to mix up the pieces if it wasn't a cute little doggie. (now I'm going to look for my old sketchbook with the bike picture....

Dang. I couldn't find it. Now I'm thinking it wasn't in a sketchbook, but on a bigger piece of paper in a portfolio. And I think it's in our storage unit. Oh well.

Interesting exercise. Maybe if you add color before you cut it up you would like it better.

Julie, you had me wondering what the?! with this post title. Talk about wild and crazy! Really, I think your rendering is adorable. It works for me.

Now this looks like such fun! Leave it to you to come up with something so creative.

Hi Julie *hugs*
How clever is that....you draw all the time don't you...really neat.
Well...his head part looks like you are putting the piece back in place so couldn't you lower the tail as if you were sliding it into place as well?
I couldn't do that...you're good!
hope you are not working too hard.
