106. Found Skull #2: Stormtrooper?

Remnants of a stencil graffiti sticker on a coffee shop window, and below my interpretation...

Kinda looks like a Stormtrooper skull, doesn't it?

What did you use to create the second image? Is it cut paper?

Oh Anonymous how you confuse me, first you hate on me then you want me to answer questions!

New rule. If you don't leave a name I don't answer your questions.

Also what's with the hatin'? Is FREE entertainment not good enough for ya?!? Jeez.

i dig it, and would actually like to see more interpretive pieces on here.

"You want to find the number 216 in the world, you will be able to find it everywhere. 216 steps from a mere street corner to your front door. 216 seconds you spend riding on the elevator. When your mind becomes obsessed with anything, you will filter everything else out and find that thing everywhere"

I love this one. I wouldn't say I'm a StarWars geek, but I can see the resemblance.

I got my skull in the mail today... well, I got YOUR skull in the mail today. Pic posted at my blog :)

For the record...

The latest issue of Craft magazine has instructions (and a pic) on making a moss skull to grow on any damp and shady surface you may wish. It involves a moss milkshake, which is cool enough in itself, but the end result is a skull-shaped moss patch and it just doesn't get any cooler than that.

Check it out next time you're near a newsstand.

I know, first they hate on your social commentary, now they're hating on your imagination? What's next? "Hey man, I don't like the way all of your art is about skulls". I guess that's the price you have to pay, but I like to think that a vast majority of the people who check these out enjoy them. Also, have you noticed all the hate is coming from anonymous people, they could at least openly hate on you right?

I think that as you are able to see art or imagery where others don't is testament to your visual spacial creativity. Isn't that what your whole blog is about? (That and skulls.)

And no-one has cause to complain, since you also conveyed your interpretation in a far less abstract manner. You know, for artistically challenged chumps like me.

Like everything you do, I think it's hot. Brava! :)

Thanks for the kind words guys, I really do appreciate it. This can actually be quite a difficult project at times and the positive feedback definitely keeps me going.

Young padawan learners... The skull is not the found remnants, but rather the original interpretation of it. The creation of the interpretation from mind into something tangible is where #106 fulfills "I'm making a skull image everyday for a year."

To me the sticker looks like someone chasing after a flying broom that has gotten away from them, but the created image... yes no doubt a stormtrooper killed during the Battle of Endor.

I think you can turn off anonymous comments.

Also, ALR -- you say the project can be difficult. I'm curious about that, because this blog has inspired me to consider doing an -a-day project.

Would you recommend doing a project like this to others? Anything you didn't forsee when you first decided on this idea (good or bad)?

I hope you keep the site up. Things have been fun from this side of the project.

Another Limited Rebellion said...

Thanks C I can always trust you to understand and explain what's going on here!!

Tim: I highly recommend doing an "A Day" project! It can be stressful trying to juggle it along with a normally busy schedule (I definitely put more hours into it than I imagined), but it's worth it for the positives: My work has reached far more people than I imagined it would, I've got an excuse to make art and experiment in new media, I'm forced to think creatively all the time and look at my environment in a new light. You definitely don't have to make it as complicated or intensive as I have and I still think you'll get a lot out of it, so full steam ahead!

p.s. I'm considering turning off Anonymous comments, but I'm waiting to see if the trend continues first.

Patti said...

My Noah got his skull in the mail yesterday, too, and is thrilled! Thanks so much!

I'm waiting for a sticker to put on my laptop like all the cool kids.

Mica said...

Gotta love a hater now! Anon's six little fightin' words (and they always do come from an anon, don't they!) generated a dozen more supportive comments!
woo! I really like this skull because of its stylistic interpretation. It reminds me of eskimo and other beautiful native american type imagery.

Since i did the 30 songs in 30 days thing, and now watching Noah weave his magic, i've been thinking about a song a day for year. Whew!

...notice i said _thinking_ about it.
