Meat Market

I started my creative career way before computers came along. I tended to do a great deal of my artwork with Caran D’Ache coloured pencils. The cow above is one of those examples. Occasionally I go through my archive and see if there is a way to update or convert some of my artwork into computer based outputs. Seen below is the result of this attempt The idea was the test and manipulate the gradient mesh tool found in Illustrator. Seems to have worked.

INGREDIENTS

1 creative person, slightly matured
2 tablespoons aptitude
1 piece of aesthetic flavouring
6lbs hard work and sweat
4 ideas more than most
salt of the earth to taste

Take a creative person and stir in some aptitude, thoroughly from the start. In time, mix in the aesthetic flavouring with the most appropriate tool at hand, and then, fold into the mix as much of the hard work and sweat that the mix can take. Sprinkle in the ideas; the more the better. And finally, as all is cooking, a pinch of ‘salt of the earth’ to give it the necessary character. Leave to cook over time and serve when required. Tasty treat in a tasteless world.
