These new art designs represent an experiment — I have no idea where they’re going or whether they’re even usable. But that’s part of the beauty of having an art blog. You can post stuff and see what the rest of the world thinks. (I don’t even know if I’ll paint these new art designs!)
Regardless, the foundation of this design — the horizontal stripes — is a package of Japanese Nissin brand ramen. (Tangent: I beseech you to visit the most entertaining website chikinramen.com.)
I figured that these new art designs represent an opportunity to exercise an oft-pondered color scheme of chocolate brown, cadmium yellow, and fluorescent pink — a genetic mutation of a motocross jersey that Travis Pastrana wore.
The oval in the middle is borrowed from a graphical element on a bottle of Kao bleach (could be tile cleaner). The lighting bolts are the colors of the Miami Dolphins National Football League team. About the patterns in the center: the one on the left is a re-creation of a popular Burberry tartan. The one on the right is one I made about a year ago (It’s not the most complicated or revolution pattern, but I like it.), but still haven’t used.
Collectively, these new art designs have a working title of The Omega Machine, just because the title popped into my head that way.
If you like this design, I invite you to check out similar paintings in this site’s Abstract Art Gallery.
Next project: I’ve put Like Antique Shopping 100 Years from Now on hold for a bit, and I’m about to start work on the purple piece shown on my blog entry of March 8, 2007, regarding a series of new art sketches.
