I can imagine Dianna.

That's probably what Virginia wants to do with the turkeys Pieter.

I'm enjoying summer because there are no school nights which gives more chances to have tablet time in bed. That's when I usually watch arts and crafts, it's so relaxing.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Yupo is a challenge in and of itself.

I do want to throttle that turkey but he knows I'm a soft touch.

Lavender, that sounds fun. I usually crochet at night, I find it relaxing.

I just had to kill a wasp's nest, I feel so bad. Usually I leave them alone but this one was in my newspaper box and the delivery girl is allergic. Neither of us noticed untill it was big because normally she comes in the dark of night. That's going to give me nightmares. Poor things.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Hi to everyone. Sorry to hear about travail and I trust matters will work out. Thinking about 'youse' all, from distant antipodean shores...

The turkey illustration of 1985 was on Dalton 3 Phase polypropylene, 150 gsm A2 size. Later that stock was renamed Yupo. I was a tester of the stock back then, for printers.

Hopefully everyone is beavering away on their dreams-n-drama: I have been at it too (3 units so far), but got myself sidetracked doing the following artworks on Yupo.

I wonder how many are familiar with Niggle. Niggle was the most brilliant artist in his own mind, and I am casting myself as Niggle with a touch of Monet... oh well, I can dream, eh? I am writing/illustrating/narrating a visual diary dissertation on the story by Tolkien. Just doing it to flex my brain muscle to halt any dementia sneaking about...







Cheers,

I'm not familiar with Niggle. He certainly looks like an artist. Maybe I should start wearing a beret.

Yes, I first read "Lead By Niggle" by JRRT in 1966. I still have my first edition of Tree and Leaf.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Hello dreamers, and Hi Attalus,

Tree and Leaf. My copy is falling apart. Sigh...
Niggle lives in a dingy grey world run by officialdom. No colour found anywhere, except in Niggle's mind where visions are grand and lofty.

I want to say this 'Dream' thread is wonderful. I'm pushing ideas and flexing-n-twisting 'em. Maybe the thread should carry on into many months.

So, let’s see. I was wondering how Arthur Rackham might have treated the dreaming time after his exposure to postmodern tattoos and body piercings. His Rip Van Winckle illustrations were so good, yet quite tame compared to today’s blood and gore by neo-Goths. Village storytelling conveys Captain Henry Hudson and his crew to a bowling alley high up in Appalachians where Rip joins in and falls asleep for twenty years after drinking to much. Rip was a dreamer and Rackham, who added the scent of fungi and rotting undergrowth to his drawings, illustrated Van Winckle’s subsequent slumber-fest and awakening.

What about Willinck and his gardens of statues and demure drama among the piles of mouldering antiquity? Those dreams among the rockery bored us youngsters dreadfully, as I recall.

Frank Frazetta? We all thought he was pretty good until it seeped into our conscious that his grunge wasn’t gritty. It was too cosily stylistic, belonging to the heroic America and not to us village dwellers. Great stuff! Yet not for young explorers among the celestial mansions just above the local belfry.

Kokoschka struck a cord when later on in his very long life he actually learned how to paint. Hitler declared Oskar ‘degenerate No.1’ following a bunch of Expressionistic disasters made by Kokoschka after he had run away with Gustaf Mahler’s wife and had painted arguably the worse double portrait in the 20th Century.

Perhaps early hunter-gatherers made the best dreaming sequences 14,000 years ago. They visualised their dreams blessed by real spirits of animals that occupy the Altamira cave galleries et al.

In an Australian context are the X-Ray images on cave walls in massive galleries made by Aborigines long passed. Now, that certainly is spectacular dreaming to humble anyone: Rainbow serpent dreaming to the droning of the didgeridoo. Once the monotonous hum registers in your mind it refuses to budge.

The best dreaming art ever told the story of tribal survival. If dreams fail starvation came knocking.

Well, to dodge starvation needed Collectivist management of dreams and dreamers whose abilities were best suited to other things. Eventually we have the socialist collective of Australian visual arts, which pays anyone glib enough to file funding applications in triplicate, stating they have a dream, a concept, a thought, a notion that is very good, so pay up to further facilitate the postmodernism fantasists.

It took fourteen thousand years for the vague unskilled dreamers to be paid gratuity for vacuity.

Great! Maybe Niggle's grey world is here...

That's my dismal cheerfulness today.... Winter in Tasmania! Blegh! Back to the easel, Pieter, and go play with your paints! My mother used to say that...

I think that's quite true. I find they fascinate me in away no other art does.

It was a tough day here for many, I'm on the border with Iowa and the tornadoes were forming everywhere today. Lots of damage but so far no fatalities, hope that holds true through the night.

I'm off to sleep, perchance to dream...Night all.

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Stay safe Virginia. We don't get many tornadoes out here but I have nightmares about them sometimes. I did dream about rain last night, I could see streams of it falling in the distance, really pouring in just a few small areas, and then it suddenly stopped.

Had a more interesting dream as well, bandits and armies and battles all that.

I guess I better finish my project today.

Stay safe Virginia, tornadoes are very scary.

Thirteen people died Thursday night in a wind-driven lake tragedy on Table Rock Lake that capsized and sank a tourist boat in the Missouri Ozarks four people are still missing.

Funny thing about Tornadoes really one of the best dreams (or was it a Dream?) was Dorthy and Oz. Most of my generation only saw it on TV in Black and White, wow what a revelation the first time you see it in Color, Oz is fantastic and so colorful and bright.

This Months National Geographic was a bout sleep and dreaming.
Very interesting, I guess it is fairly common for people to dream and not remember them.
I'm looking forward to seeing the inspired by a Dream art on here.


Tomorrow, tomorrow it's only a Day away!

Re: July Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Those were some strong storms. They went around us though my phone is out, internet is fine though a bit slowish, I may have to wait to upload.

Thank goodness, there were no fatalities though. The one town lost it's bell tower, it was lifted right off of their city hall. Their downtown was pretty bad too. In another town the big Vermeer plant, they make farming and construction equipment had a direct hit. We have friends that work there, everyone is okay but it's a mess. Lots of volunteers already out and at it this morning though. That's always nice to see.

Those people in Branson shouldn't have ever gotten out on those WWII era craft.

Terry went on them about two years ago and enjoyed it very much!
He still has his "Duck" horn he got that day.

Here's my inspired by a dream.
Since I don't remember my dreams I call this one "Gone".
Acrylics on canvas panel 8x10.
Another dirty pour I had fun with.
