Last week I collaborated quite randomly with someone I’ve never met. Someone I know asked me to color in a black marker drawing his brother made on canvas. As my days of coloring books are long gone, it seemed like the awesome grown up version of coloring inside the lines. And here is the result.
I like working together with other artists because it results in surprising combinations of style. My drawings never look creepy. Not even if I try really hard. I somehow just end up drawing butterflies, rainbows and unicorns. Sort of. So in collaborations like this one, I think it is great to combine the creepy with the colorful. You get art that neither one of us could have created by him/herself, and that’s really inspiring to me. It makes me want to create more.
