246






Here's a collaboration with my wife Kris, and a somewhat different approach to making a Splotch Monster. Earlier last month she saw a cool art technique online and wanted to try it. Basically she painted a piece of string then placed it in between a white sheet of paper, folded in half. My job was to hold the paper firmly in half between my hands as she slowly pulled the painted string around and out. It made a very nice, symmetrical line painting, which I cut in half and used for Splotch Monster 246. I simply decided to paint it with watercolors then later draw on it. This is definitely something worth trying again sometime.
