A level -1? ~Waldo +1

I came across one of those websites that draw pretty swoops and curves wherever you drag your mouse, as one often does when stumbling about the internet aimlessly. This one had a feature I hadn't seen before - a mouse-repositioning feature that didn't let your cursor get dragged beyond the edges of the canvas when drawing. I realized I could reposition my brush to the bottom right hand corner when I got lost, and had a few attempts at drawing this way (with my eyes closed).

My only remotely recognizable effort was this waiter, welcoming and holding a tray of... things:

The task is available, but I have better plans underway, so I'm slightly-less-than-level-zeroing here.

Some players create beautiful things every time they task. I always wind up doing exactly the opposite. Part one - Blind sculpting - Nov 2008 The VDNKh is one of my favorite places on Earth. I cannot think about it without crying. It is everythi...

It kind of amazed me that no one has completed this one yet. I mean, it seems like sort of a gimme, a fun thing to do on a rainy afternoon. In my case, it was a fun and much needed pick-me-up during a very long and splashy day at work. I have a conf...

For this task, I decided to copy Magritte's The Son of Man: Because blindfolded painting seems like an especially messy prospect, I used pastels. I arranged them by color around my sketchbook, so I'd have a better chance at accuracy. I thought tha...

I thought it might be an intriguing experience to replicate one of my ceramic slip-cast hearts.

We had a sudden power outage while I was supposed to be working. So I thought I'd do an SF0 task instead :-) The lovely supplies. The very lovely work of art. The not so lovely blindfold. The harrowing process., result. The...

I've been planning our art unseen contest for a month but have been swamped with papers and a play and have not had time to run it. That is, until TODAY! After many texts and phone calls, the "contest" (which wasn't really a contest, because there ...

It took me awhile to figure out how I wanted to do this, because there are so many options. I decided on art as music, for one very particular reason: My brain is wired funny. I mean, it's not exactly debilitating, it just means that things are conn...

Art Unseen by Josh November 26th, 2008 11:38 PM

After reading Morte's praxis of this task, I remembered my high school days in which my friends and I would draw silly things with our eyes closed. So, of course, I had to reenact my childhood. I took the opposite end of the time spectrum for this ...
