This week’s prompt from the Documented Life Project continued the theme of doodling. The specific challenge prompt was Borders and the journal prompt was a Madonna lyric, “Borderline feels like I’m going to lose my mind.” I love doodling. I don’t have the patience or precision for zentangle but I like filling spaces with doodle shapes and adding dots and dashes here and there in my art work. I don’t, however, tend to use borders, especially not decorative ones, in my art work so that for me was the challenge.
Since it was Mr Pict’s birthday, time was understandably tight so I decided to keep it simple. As I often do for some peculiar reason, I defaulted to drawing a funny bunny. I framed it within a border which I doodled in black to keep it monochrome. I then doodled the negative space created with a spectrum of coloured pens. The positive shape of the bunny then emerged from the negative shapes within the drawing, if that even makes any semblance of sense.
PS If you want to see a new horde of my zombie bunnies, they have just invaded my art blog.
