|Thirty Works 2021 - Second 10
Part 2 of my submissions for an exercise that calls on me to produce a new work of art for each of the 30 days of April 2021.
Day 11: Take an old work and make it more commercial
Day 12: Collaborate with someone else today
(Image transfer collage done with my son, Tom Heywood, in the aftermath of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh)
Day 13: Remake yesterday's work
(A second collage of Queen Elizabeth and "intercut" with yesterday's work)
Day 14: Don't make anything today. Just send a description of what you would make
Title: Key Components for a Mystery Project
Day 15: Does it take the path of least resistance?
Title: Resistance is Futile
Day 16: The prompt went on and on but in essence it meant "do something quick"
(4 minute self portrait done with my eyes shut, feeling my face and drawing with my non-dominant hand)
Day 17: Experiment with ways to document your work
Title: Shadow Puppets - Prototype
(Suggest by my grand-daughter, Cleo Heywood, and made in conjunction with her)
Day 18: Is there a bit of art-related admin you've been putting off?
Of course there is! Maybe do that today?
(How could that inspire the work you make?)
I decided the art related admin was recording this exercise on this website.
So I created this video called 18 works/18 seconds:
Day 19: Try cheating today
Title: Anybody Looking?
(I took a video of myself looking as though I was up to no good in response to the same prompt last year
This year, I took 20 stills from the video and converted them into a rather jerky animated drawing using Photoshop)
Day 20: Take the unsolicited advice about your work
Title: Did I Ask for This?
(Tough to get advice without asking for it. Decided it sometimes happened in Zoom meetings )
