Noah’s workshop really hit the spot; for the vivid dreamer, pick-me-up for the stifled imagination, general rut-be-gone, chicken soup for the mind’s eye-you name it.
Anyway, I’m really into the homework and so I’ll share it with you.
The gist of the assignment is to choose a protagonist (animal, human, object), a setting (underwater, in a glass cube etc.) and a state or action, ( floating, in parts, dissolving, etc.) and combine them. Consider mark making.
I work with a few different media in color but graphite pencil is fine too.

Figure in pieces in cave, in floating canoe.
We then move to myth and archetype. We each choose an established archetype and assign a personal image to it. I choose the Fool as a chain-fruit cholla…um..hmm. Very fun.
Then, we collaborate, playing a kind of exquisite corpse game of telephone.
Lot’s ‘o grist-for-the-mill here. Looking forward to more.
