But I took a pencil to one of my backgrounds and started playing around...first, I drew a fish. Extra fins, an extra tail thing...but it didn't look weird enough, so I started adding some extra facial features....extra eyes, kissy lips.....and I got so excited,
I decided to try a crab. But first...well, first I had to figure out how to draw the damn thing! So off to pinterest I went, but of course, being an artist who doesn't "draw", my crab looked NOTHING like any of the ones I looked at for inspiration, but it's Picasso-esque...sort of...maybe, so what the hell? So, again, I started adding stuff...
Then I decided to try my hand at an octopus...not exactly a spot on rendition, but still having some fun...so again I added the extra features..
and THIS is what I came up with!
And since this is supposed to be about stretching ourselves past our comfort zone, I didn't redo it and try out some "cubism" that Picasso was big into. This isn't my favorite spread I've ever done, but I don't hate it.
