Creative UNblock

"A Season for No Reason" by artist Trey Speegle

In January 2015 I participated in the first month of Creative UNblock's exercise that I found on Danielle Krysa's blog: The Jealous Curator. Danielle is the author of Creative Block - Get Unstuck, Discover New Ideas: Advice and Projects from 50 Successful Artists . I was inspired by Trey Speegle's "A Season for no Reason".  The description of the project is below.

A SEASON FOR NO REASON: Make a drawing in black and white {or use a found image} and then photocopy the drawing onto card stock 50 times – or enough copies so that you won’t “worry” about how many you’ve used. {Take your time and draw or find an image that you really love, and will like working with over and over} Then, alter the image in as many different ways as you can think of with colored pencils, paint, cutting, whatever. You can modify this idea and change it in whatever way you like but the important thing is to turn off your brain and just play with a repeated form and let your mind see where no ideas or thought process takes you. Create your own tight parameters… then give yourself a LOT of room to play. Have fun. ~ Trey Speegle
