Where Creativity and Everyday Life Collide

Art Every Day Month – Day 13

3 Comments

Today I went back to the NaNoJouMo song-title prompts.  Today’s was “How Soon Is Now” by The Smiths and was featured in the 1998 film, The Wedding Singer.  The song title reminded me of a clock; also two lines of the chorus are used over and over and gave me the idea for both the character and the text in my art journal page.

Day 13 - How Soon is Now - The Smiths

I used an acrylic painted background that I had scanned and printed out for this page (so that it formed a smooth base for the collage).  I cut out several disparate elements from magazines and collaged them to create a human-like character.  I created a clock out of the round piece behind the head.  I  hand-lettered two lines from the song’s chorus and the title/group name on the page.  I finished by doodling the blue playing card and other areas on the page.

I love the bright colors and how quickly the journal page came together.  I’m now more than 40% through this challenge and I may have made it past that ‘block’ that inevitably comes part way through any daily challenge like this.

I hope you have met your creative goals today too.

I write poetry and fiction; create doodle art; do genealogical research; take photographs of the world around me; think about odd things; hike the red rocks; and obsess on food.

  1. Your calligraphy suits the lyrics wonderfully.

  2. That’s a real compliment since you are the calligraphy champ of Arizona.

  3. The Smiths are one of my favourite bands and that is one of my favourite songs. What’s funny is that I never would have conjured up bright colours for that song but I love what you created.
