Piecing It Together 4

100×100 pixel icon textures were the first type of abstract art I tried. This set is cut from my recent art share, The 80s Threw Up. I added some paper texture to these for more depth.

I made icon textures for years before realizing that I did it as a form of meditation or therapy. My process is/was to take a larger artwork and crop it into uniform colored sets like this. I have way more than I’ll ever use, and I’m sorry that the 100×100 avatar/icon seems to be a dying art. I’ve decided to post these anyway because I’m using my “LJ” techniques to build a new style.

The 80s Threw Up: Layers

Art journal:

Here’s a look at the unmanipulated layers from my last art share, The 80s Threw Up.
They look pretty basic, but it just took a few edits to turn them into something awesome.

Art Share

So, I lost my mind last weekend.  Broke down crying (No reason.  All the reasons.) Couldn’t get my shit together all day.  Kept crying, screaming, what-have you.

These are some process-art I did while trying to get through that.

I suppose most of my friends would recommend written journaling but it doesn’t work for me in those situations and just causes more exhaustion/emotional distress rather than any kind of cathartic “healing” event like people say.

I’ll show you what I did with these in the next couple of weeks.

I’ve said before that my “art journaling” is more like a digital sketchbook charting the progress of things than what most people think of, which to me is “collaging” and doesn’t give me any sense of emotion.
