I came across BoConcept, a Danish furniture store, last month as one of their employees was handing out the yearly catalog. I took one not knowing what I’d do with it but knowing I could use it for something.
I had already seen Austin Kleon take pictures of pansies and combine them with images of luchadores, so the possibilities were endless.
With Inktober well underway and me feeling stuck with a blank page, I decided to use the catalog as my drawing board. I took that day’s theme (“enchanted”) and came up with this:
I was really pleasantly surprised by how realistic I had made the curtains seem. I tried it out a few more times:
My favorite so far has been the swing.
Because I had trouble coming up with a theme/topic for today, I just Googled a random word generator. That’s how the word “variation” came about (see above).
The same process goes for choosing the page I’m going to draw on — It’s completely random!
