We are doing something different today for the 50th Creative Prompt.
I was driving down the freeway on Monday and saw some graffiti painted on the freeway wall. I am not getting into a discussion about graffiti. I am sure there are lists for the “is graffiti art?” discussion. They are not here, though you are free to weigh in in the comments if you feel the desire.
Normally, I ignore graffiti, but happened to notice the shape of the bottom of the piece, which I thought was interesting. I am still in a different frame of mind after my talk last week, which made me think of this special Creative Prompt.
I would like you to find something that has inspired you – a magazine ad, a piece of poetry, something you photographed, something you saw on the web, etc. – and create a doodle or piece of art from that inspiration.
For example, if you took a photograph of a tree, you could put a piece of tracing paper over the tree shape and outline it and then create a doodle from that shape. It does not have to be drawn. Your piece can be any kind of art including poetry or painting or short stories or collage or…..
If possible, post your inspiration along with your response. Let me know if you have any questions.
See the Creative Prompt page if you have questions about this project.
Post the direct URL where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of this post. It will keep all the artwork together.
The Creative Prompt Project, also, now, has a Flickr group, which you can join and where you can post your responses.
