Arting for 365 Day 79: In Response to Whale Rider

Day 79 (7/16/12): Whale Rider

3.5 x 3.5″ Acrylic and ink on Sierra Nevada paper coasters

I have been told that routine is good for getting lots done. While this might be true, I’ve gotta say, some days Box (the cat) and I just need a change of pace. -A change of scenery or sound; something to break up our everyday routine. Day 79 was one of those days, so I decided I’d put on Whale Rider while I worked.

As I listened to the story, I found myself creating these lovely, seemingly simple, yet extremely detailed designs. The format of the pieces is small, 3.5 x 3.5”, but the bold colors and flow of the designs makes them feel full of energy.

In regards to the movie: I loved it, even though I found myself bawling (red, swollen nosed, snot dripping down kind of bawling). Box, on the other hand, lost interest in the movie immediately.
