But while waiting, a couple of other things came dripping out that I would not have otherwise known about and that I could not resist doing. This is my entry in the HAMILTON COUNTY ATC (Artist Trading Card) PROJECT. This project was challenging, mostly because of the size limitation- all pieces are to be 2 1/2"x3 1/2" in size.. MUCH smaller than I ever work. So I had fun creating a piece in small scale and working out of my comfort zone. In developing the theme, I wanted to include a little from each of my areas of expertise: MURALS, GAMING, and GRAPHICS DESIGN. I decided that since GEN CON was here, I would use an overall gaming theme. I also wanted to put some aspect of mural work in there, so I decided early on to use some TROMPE L'OEIL to give it a 3-D quality. Lastly, some text and accent graphics to frame it in and dress it up a bit.
The entries will be shown this Saturday, the 13th, during the CARMEL A&D DISTRICT GALLERY WALK at FRENCH BLEU GALLERY (111 West Main Street) and later will be featured in a book about Hamilton County Artists.
Stay tuned: HALLOWEEN THEME NEXT WEEK!!
