Self-Portrait Tuesday 06.27

I am about "popped" out of ideas for Self-Portrait Challenge. As it took me three days to come up with an illustration idea for work, I am having the same brain-block dilemma with Pop Art series. Is there a boot camp for creativity? If so, please sign me up. "Seeking to find the door to my creativity".

I was too pooped to 'pop' most of this month so I can relate but I think yours this week is my favorite!

Kim, this just shows you are a true artist while most of us are just dabblers and bunglers. I loved earlier shots of your kitchen but this is so striking. We needs to sign up for creativity camp at your house!
P.S. Loving your new icon photo.

Kim Carney said...

Thank you EVERYONE! I used the Photoshop, the first layer > FILE> STYLIZE > FIND EDGES, then I copy the bit of me and the doorway and did some other filter, I did so many I can not remember ;0
Amy, that is my favorite, Bryn Walker, Scholar coat (and pants). It has an uneven hem and I love it...

This is really amazing-the longer I looked at it the more I saw-love it

Kate said...

I agree with the others, it turned out very interesting.

My solution to get over writer's block was to start a new blog, where I wrote all the things I thought were not good enough for my official blog -- things that were too sad, or too long-winded, or whiny, or whatever. It turned out to be a very inspiring place, where I wrote some of my best stuff! I imagine an artist can do the same, create a new place where they can reinvent themselves.

Kim Carney said...

Thank you all for the wonderful comments. It warms my heart. I wish you were all here, I would show you how to do this in photoshop in 5 minutes, a little photoshop show and tell. With tea. ;)
