Make Something Creepy
While working on the original Creature Card Creation project I used some of the time to quantity, as best I could, what features and attributes equate to an end result. What makes an object or creature cute? What makes something Creepy? Admittedly these are not fool proof but certain generalities tend true.
For something to be creepy it helps to have human characteristics. Humanoid but just a little off. Something stretched, accentuated, and slightly off. For today's project I'm going to be working with something that starts off a bit creepy. I received a variety of dummy heads used for training at a hair school. It's just a head which is a little creepy on its own. Perhaps if I take the faces off and use them for something else I can push the creepiness factor. If I take the eyes out and decorate it in a Day of the Dead style it would be mildly creepy but the colors and designs would encourage it in a different direction. If I take the eyes out and paint it like a zombie it would train the creepiness (except for our desensitization towards zombies in general.)
I was invited to a mask show at For Artsake Gallery in Newport, Oregon this October. In preparation for the Art-a-thon I created a "mask" using three faces. You can watch a video of it in action on my instagram page and below. For my prompt Oct 24th 8am - 10am PDT. I'm going to see what faces I have left and make something similar if possible. Join us on Facebook to see updates and talk to Rhonda Chase me, the artist while I work!
Visit us on facebook October 24th for the 13 Hour Art-a-thon! The more you interact with the artists online the more likely you are to win their fabulous prizes. Hope to see you then.
