social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

faux graffiti

 
a Graffiti made by myself:
i photographed this orange texture Background in our town.
added a blue bird (holliewood Studios: stenciled and sprayed vol 1);
wrote my Name with font urban calligraphy / dafont) and added a Frame from designcuts [both clipping-masked with the bird Color]
 
this is for the last week at SOC: orange-orange-blue
and for the 3 muses street art / Graffiti
 
and i played a bit more and came to another Piece for SOC:
 

this time the Background is blue (erica parée, altered from turquoise to blue);
then i made one of my photos - tree with crows - into a png and clipping-masked it with an orange texture (free from flickr). shadowing effects on the tree (drop shadow, bevel&emboss, inner shadow)

  4. Both images are great, but I prefer the second one. I especially like the interplay of the branches with the birds.

  32. Well, I know a bit about photo-editing but I'm still flummoxed as to how you achieved this textured look and these quite astonishing pieces. And with just blues and oranges too.
    Top marks for both, Johanna.

  34. I love them both! It is so interesting how swapping the background and foreground colours around can make such a difference; the first very vibrant and the second more subdued. Jx

  35. Dramatic and beautiful! I love these saturated colors and that cool font.

  36. WOW, not sure how I got so far behind, but I love both of these. I like how you transposed the colors, which made them totally different, even though the colors were the same. Beautiful entries on both counts.
