IF Liquid (Fluid)




                                                                Size: 36 x 23 cms
                                                                Media: Gouache , ink,
                                                                charcoal on cardboard
                                                                Pens: Markers, crayons

                                             "I see music as fluid architecture" Joni Mitchell

Edit: I thought I remembered the Illustration Friday word correctly, I even wrote it down correctly I thought...'Fluid', I wrote on my notepad. So of course I made my drawing sort of fit. The problem was that after posting this as 'IF Fluid'...I had noticed on the IF site that the word was actually Liquid....Maybe it fits better now....no...no it doesn't. OK so who cares? I don't. Its a bald guitarist with a long cable where the electric signals flow down towards the amplifier like liquid......OK?? OK NOW????

  4. You should have added some beer bottles on the floor so the liquid part would have been covered... No, it is very cool, love the cardboard!

  7. Hahaha. I have NEVER *cough* mixed up the IF word. (Well maybe once. Or twice. Or I lost count.) :D

    I love it! I am such a big fan of white and ink on toned paper that I should really do it more often. Very cool guy, and guitar, and spaghetti-like mess of cords! (Maybe he's a meatball! See? Cause um, meatball is a funny word and he is on top of the spaghetti? I think so. It always gets weird around here!) ;)

  8. No--it's an utterly dejected guitar player who isn't making anything happen. Those cords on the floor--that's his music, and his life--limp and bland. Poor guy. He seems so earnest too....

    (and eh, who cares about the actual prompts anyway). And I agree about the beer bottles....

  9. Oh! I love this band 'LIQUID STEEL'. They are so good! Woo hoo!! Guess the leader's doing his top 40 solo number while the other members of 'LIQUID STEEL' are backstage shooting up.

    1. If I succeed do I have to buy a long cord?

  11. That cable looks very liquid to me. It's becoming a sea, an ocean, with curling waves. The guitar player is standing in the 'cable water' and will drown if he plays to long! The white on the brown is very beautiful!

  12. Aaaaaahhhh!!!! I love your story and yes you made the prompt more interesting. I like the board and my goodness, how did you get into my house to draw the wires behind my desk?

  14. This is funny because I kept thinking it was FLUID, too. I did a sketch of the "fluid movement of a jaguar" only to discover it was LIQUID. So the jaguar got the boot. I was back to the drawing board....literally.
    This is a VERY cool piece & I'm loving the cardboard, regardless of whatever the hell the stupid word was! :)
