Music is inspirational, and it puts you in a mood. I think what mood might depend on what music you're listening to. I like to listen to music on my iPod Nano while I'm making art. I listen to a lot of '80s music, blues, hard rock, etc. I've been listening to some of the same songs every time, and then some different ones. I've been frequently listening to some songs such as "Some Guys Have All the Luck" by Robert Palmer and "Hot in the City" by Billy Idol. Music can help along the creative process for an artist. Music is great!
My sister made some decorations for my birthday using a machine that makes cutouts of silhouettes. One of the things she made was of The Punisher symbol. It already looked cool, but I photoshopped it, and I think this looks cool too. I like how the skull has a metallic look to it. My sister made the cutout of The Punisher skull with a foil-like paper, which has adhesive on the back. She put that on a black paper circle. The paper is more or less like you'd use for a scrapbook. It's one of my favorite decorations she made. Below is a picture of the decoration.
Happy Earth Day! It's great that the Earth became livable eons ago and that we came into existence on it. Different people have different ideas of how we came into existence on it, but I think the important thing is that we live on a beautiful planet that has pretty much everything a human being could want or need. Earth is awesome!
I'm trying out a new art blog design. the side bar can be seen by clicking on those three lines up top toward the left. There are new templates on Blogger so I thought I'd try one of them. We'll see how this goes.
