For Day 8 of the Creative Jumpstart (I skipped a few), artist Brigit Koopsen demonstrated a painting in the style of Jean-Michel Basquiat. I found Basquiat's art grim though fascinating, but I loved how Brigit pulled inspiration from Basquiat while much of the grim behind. I may have taken more inspiration from Brigit than from Basquiat in the end.
I did the drawing and decided I would get the most out of it if I actually tried to take something from Basquiat's work. I chose my colors from the images in the Creative Jumpstart pinterest collection. I also added the scribbled writing as a vague tribute to Basquiat's word-laden imagery.
Do keep your eyes open, because sometimes there really is already a pterodactyl in the dumptruck Thank you, Brigit. That was a fun assignment.
