Well on my texture/image treasure hunts this week I've come across a ton of great stuff plusss there's been so much great new stuff...so this is sort of a chaotic mix of things that really made me go 'ooh!'.
First off Belcath1981 - what a lady. Can't thank her enough for planting the seeds for my new colouring obsession. her remixes are stunning plus she is so generous in sharing her tips in a great little album belcath's photoshop tips. Belcath also shares a bunch of great resources in her textures and backgrounds album - as well as leading my example with her many gorgeous remixes. My favourite is her remix of mirtle's bird lady. That skirt...wowwy! So clever and pretty. But belcath has a tonof great stuff - I recommmend you all check her RECords out.
Next Marvellous Marv remix by elayne. Elayne is another recorder who makes fantastic images and image remixes. She gets it spot on every time and this is one example of how cleverly she works with RECords - using resources and adding her own flair to make really professional looking work. In this image she beautifully remixes reije's drawing for filmpunk's chicldren's book collab. Many thanks to Susan0987 for reviving the marvellous marv collab - would be great if more image remixers would chip in too!
Many miraculous thoughts by annaplay - I came across this gem while looking for textures and what a great one this is. Stunning image with a great idea behind it - and amazing intricate painting work. I just love it - so imaginative and well executed.
Song for Leonard Cohen by Robo_J - well RJ has always made great music on here but lately he's just on a roll - such talent. This RECord is a beautiful musicization of smweed's lyrics. RJ got the tone just right here I think - a lot of feeling behind this one. Great collaboration. And once again, props to Sarah for writing such inspiring lyrics that lead to awesome remixes such as this one.
VO for the shadow caste prologue by RichieMillennium - Ain't no VO like a Richie VO. If I could hire the guy to voice my inner monologue I would. A great piece of writing paired with a great voice/reader. A joy.
The Alphabet (working title) by deeasherself - I love the way dee's brain works. All her writings have such an otherworldly tone. This one uses the really clever technique of making its way through the alphabet - so it's packed with yummy alliteration. It's a surreal, wordy journey thats a pleasure to read. It makes you want to read it out loud in fact.
Light & Dark by Dancingdirtroads - Another one of the great images I came across while trawling. I just really love the golden/metallic tones that dancingdirtroads added to Lea Daniel's image. I think they really suit the vibe.
Recipe book/collaboration by paperlilies - I loooove this idea and I love the quirky/cute/tasty recipes being contributed. The artists are doing so well to maintain a tone here. I'm really excited to see these collated together because I think it's a fantastic project with tons of potential. What a wonderful idea and it's a pleasure to see it progress and grow.
Well...when I like something I tend to show obsessive behavior...REmixing mirtle's drawings is like an OCD at the moment...I hope you don't mind mirtle...but your work is so inspiring and full of possibilities...
My recipe for peanut sauce! I figured we could use a little savory up in this business. And this stuff goes with anything; stick it on veggies, tofu, noodles, I bet you could even use it for a meat marinade. I was planning on doing a dessert recipe I made up a few years ago for a Christmas party, but even something as simple as this was way more time and labor intensive than I thought it would be. So who knows? It'll probably go up, but may take me even longer to do than this one did. (A week. Really. Little doodles are hard.) (That's what she said.)
I apologize if my handwriting is hard to read in this, but I refuse to apologize for the little nerdy joke in the corner.
Astonishingly, all the awards aimed, again, at Albert's amazing analysis about ants.
But before the blessing baffled the boy into believing he'd gone berserk,
had a rough afternoon. somewhere out of it, came this.
