Studio Friday: Tools of the Trade


Hm.. My tools are common. Pencil, tracing paper, scissors, cutter, glue, and magazines to chop up. What a boring artwork could be..

I thought about ‘bigger’ tools then. The most important tools to create art. It’s everybody’s tools!

First is head.. with all the brain and ideas. Then heart that works all the time to keep the idea alive. Finally, eyes that move for us to help realizing the artwork.

And what happens with the bone.. Ya. It has contribution too. Many artists suffer from back pain so I decided to include bones as one of the tools.

Enjoy OUR tools!

very cool; enjoy the balance of this piece; how it has no use for those bones that it just tosses them aside.

Oh you always make such interesting collages! I love it! So clever! Oh and that bone...yu should feel what my back feels like these days... not good. I had no idea that it is like that for many artists...wow. Throw a massage therapist in the mix, haha! Love the vibrant pink you picked!
True what Ascender meant about the bone being tossed aside... very cool.

Neat! I didn't think of 'organic' tools... (is that the right word?)
