Playing with my food

For some bizarre reason I liked the look of a bunch of raw peas floating in a bowl of water so I scanned them directly on the scanner and started to mess around..... dont know what I am aiming for when I start stuff like this... thats the fun. Often this sort of thing ends up going in a completely new direction. Texture is a digital photo of a concrete wall and the streaks are digital pix from autos going by on Mulholland. What does all this mean? I have no idea, but it felt right when I decided it was "done".

Flash-generated abstractions

This image started as a frame exported from an experimental animation clip in Flash. I sometimes use Flash to create an abstract starting point for a collage. I then worked into it with a cintiq tablet in Photoshop. Im one of those people who doesnt like to work with a blank sheet of paper. Hey, I gotta say, I like that new 21 cintiq! Almost like real painting...... almost.
