Something New #4 and #5

February 25, 2011 by Darlene McC

Yesterday I was struggling to fit in my Something New by midnight so I asked the wisdom of my friends:

And Ms Rachel Smallwood had some great ideas – my favorite (and most simple) was what lead me to #4:

#4: Drawing Simultaneously With Both Hands

Conveniently, I was out at a bar making a new friend while I was trying to decide and he had two pens and a scrap of paper.  I asked him “What should I draw?”.   He replied “What’s in your heart.”  I did:

Mirrored Hearts

It was fun, and an interesting experiment ~ I drew them as mirrors of one another, which the gentlemen assembled at the bar found very cool.  I think I’m going to try a larger, more focused (and less alcoholic) version of this experiment this weekend.

#5: None of Your Business!

And now, the unveiling of a new graphic:

 

I’ve been thinking about what I’m willing to share and drew a few lines for myself.  After all, my grandmother can read and if you don’t want someone to know something you don’t write it down.  Something New #5 was such thing; hence Billy the Bigmouth Bass here.

One thought on “Something New #4 and #5

  1. Rachel says:

    Good idea to have a personal post edit, never know who’s reading. 🙂

    OK, ideas round 2

    1 – brush your teeth with the opposite hand
    2 – take a shower in the complete dark
    3 – at some point during the night ( or day if you are brave) run up and down your stairs naked (shoes are ok, it is NY)
    4 – roast a marshmallow on the burner of your stove and make a s’more
    5 – Open the window and ask the first boy who walk by “What day is it today?” and when they reply say “damn, I thought it was christmas day, and I had a goose all picked out”
    6 – go an entire 24hrs without saying anything, not one word. written, signed, charaded ok, just no talking.
    7 – cut up an old sweater and use the sleeves to make new mittens for yourself (the cuffs become the wrist part)
    8 – #illegal# – jump a turnstile, take the train without paying. IF you get busted, just show them your unlimited card and say you were just playing…
    9 – make your own set of dice out of clay /or it’s equivalent (even the D20)
    10 – go to work in two different shoes, see if anyone notices.

    There ya have it, some ideas to ponder.
