Illustration Friday- Play


I love to incorporate play into my work; in fact, I think that play is an essential part of being a creative person, whether it's playing with techniques, or just maintaining a playful attitude. I actually made this shadow box a couple of years ago, and it sits on a ledge outside of my office, to remind my co-workers of my mantra. It was made with acrylic paints, old news clippings and old game pieces.

This is great! It's nice to remind those around you to not take life too seriously and to have fun with what you're doing!

Beautiful artwork! The word play fits so well to create art. It's kind of playing with paints, brushes, the computer....
