a creative couple of days

I have to share the window displays of Anthropology at Fashion Island, Newport Beach. Rumor has it that design school students are the creative minds behind displays. These dresses are created using paper covered wire hangers, like you get from the dry cleaners. I took these photos to share with my dry cleaner.

AND - I participate in a small study/design group that meets every tuesday. We start the day with a word, this week the word was BLOOMING. First we do 5 min. pencil sketch, then a 15 minute something. This is paper collage. I had a page of EYES. If the eyes were flowers they could be blooming

Then we select an image from an art magazinse or high end auction house catalogue. This is my inspiration image, artist unknown,
We do 3 15-20 min. interpretations of the inspiration image.

This week I like what I saw and did. Not every week or trip to the mall is so inspiring. What are you working on?

I'm going to have to make a trip to Fashion Island to see the window displays in person before they change. They look amazing. I love the graphic quality of your interpretations of the inspiration image. I think that you may have inspired me to give this exercise a try. Thanks!

Love the recycled hangers from the dry cleaners! Your study/design group sounds interesting.
