the monthly online iphoneography project (otherwise known as the recipe book project) i like to link to is back from summer hiatus. my entry this month is a tribute to roy lichtenstein. we had a chance to see his amazing retrospective at the art institute of chicago this summer.
due to the large crowd and a large number of no photography allowed signs, i only got a couple photos of artworks. but, wow, these are just two of a massive collection of work spanning decades assembled in numerous rooms. awesome.
at the exit, there were even some parting gifts.
i am sorry to say that before this show, i had completely underestimated lichtenstein's work. i am happy to say that my eyes have been opened and my mind sufficiently blown. so, without further ado, here is my entry for the recipe book project.
i took the picture with the reverse cam on my ipad in camera+, applied an auto correct filter, and cropped it to a square. then i took it into toon paint, turned it into an ink outline, and painted in certain areas with pop colors. last, i took it into popdot, applied sunday comics -comic 8 for the style, took out the border inset under adjust, and added the text in the bubble under fun stuff. now that i have given the "recipe", i'd like to add a quick note about the apps used. i love camera+ and use it all the time. although i've had toon paint for a while, i haven't used it much. it did do what i needed it to do for this project though. popdot, however, is another story. it crashed on me over and over. and over and over. i finally got this version to save, but am still a little surprised by that.
oh yes, and one more entry. i love this picture of me in my studio taken by my 4 year old son, zac. looks like he knows how to use instagram now!
so there you have it. if you have any kind of smartphone or tablet device, i truly hope you will try out some of the super fun apps out there. and if you do, i hope you will join us in a future edition of the recipe book project. click on over there and check out the entries for this month!
here's to being wrong...and loving it!
