so you think you can dance ??????????

I love this programme from the USA - boy how i wish I could dance like them. I should have been a dancer - I wanted to be a dancer - I wanted to work in theatre.
The best I can do is to base my figures on dance , the theatre and the 'SYTYCD' television programme - guess thats better than nothing.

face directory

working with this idea of compiling ideas and trials .............. this is last evenings trials. The one thing that is good about this , is that when working one face I am on to the next in my head.
This one has potential but not quite there yet.

I like simple faces and, come to that, simple figures too. So I am starting to work with this idea of a face directory to assist me in producing some new faces and figures.

These I have played around with - simplicity - stick , twig figures and simple cartoon-like faces and features.

Now to work on more ideas and also the translation into papers and materials.

Faces and figures - thats my passion. They have always figured in my work, alongside the teabag obsession. So I have decided to work on faces and create a kind of face directory. A dictionary of faces in all kinds of techniques and materials. I would like to think that I could create one a day but sometimes commitment like that is not ideal as it can be overlooked easily and that in itself creates failure................... and I don't want to fail with this.

So guess it would be easier to work some faces stitched, some sketched, some just found .......and then direct them into a ''what if' project. That is really how I work anyway so to document it should be relatively easy.

As I am in the process of moving house I need this creativity and direction to focus my attention on - so these faces that I am beginning the project with, are ones that are already created and in an exhibition currently running. Somebody said they looked like me but I dont think so - at least it wasnt done consciously if they do.

Does my hair really look like that? I dont think so ;-) But I do think they portray a thinking mode and that is something I do do .....................a lot.
