Last weekend we painted one of Colin's bedroom walls a BRIGHT blue color (a pretty cyan), that's just a bit brighter than the blue in the image above. It's a good shade though, and looks good contrasted against the white of the other walls. He wanted me to paint something on one of his walls... I suggested a squid in a corner. I'm not completely happy with the idea of JUST a squid though... Like, it needs to be running away from something. But I can't think of anything right now. What's something that would chase away a squid? Or, what's something that would absurdly chase away a squid? A hamster in scuba gear?
Later, went and did the above drawing (it was like finger painting) using the Brushes app for the iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, since it's the only thing I have that I can draw in color digitally, aside from MS Paint (I have traditional media supplies-- watercolors, oil paints, and oil pastels, but didn't feel like getting too messy). Maybe one day I'll splurge for Photoshop. And a Wacom (I've been eying the Wacom Bamboo for quite a while, heh).
I still prefer old pen and ink though.
