Here are some blotch personalities I doodled
the other day...
They emerge quite by themselves - children of
the subconscious, I suppose. The lady with the 5-dot
face and long skirt, for example, bears a striking
resemblance to a woman I met at the Textile Art
a few weeks ago...
And the obvious rather evil magician? No comment...

Made a few mixed-medias with blotch figures, too.
Something of this sort will be, amongst other
things, in the shop with my next update...

"Only name the day, and we'll fly away
In the face of old traditions,
To a sheltered spot, by the world forgot,
Where we'll park our inhibitions.
Come and gaze in eyes where the lovelight lies
As it psychoanalyzes,
And when once you glean what your fantasies mean
Life will hold no more surprises.
When you've told your love what you're thinking of
Things will be much more informal;
Through a sunlit land we'll go hand-in-hand,
Drifting gently back to normal.

While the pale moon gleams, we will dream sweet dreams,
And I'll win your admiration,
For it's only fair to admit I'm there
With a mean interpretation.
In the sunrise glow we will whisper low
Of the scenes our dreams have painted,
And when you're advised what they symbolized
We'll begin to feel acquainted.
So we'll gaily float in a slumber boat
Where subconscious waves dash wildly;
In the stars' soft light, we will say good-night—
And “good-night!” will put it mildly.

Our desires shall be from repressions free—
As it's only right to treat them.
To your ego's whims I will sing sweet hymns,
And ad libido repeat them.
With your hand in mine, idly we'll recline
Amid bowers of neuroses,
While the sun seeks rest in the great red west
We will sit and match psychoses.
So come dwell a while on that distant isle
In the brilliant tropic weather;
Where a Freud in need is a Freud indeed,
We'll always be Jung together."

(Dorothy Parker: The Passionate Freudian to His Love)

amazing what the mind can come up with when you let it make it's own associations! illustrations and mixed media both delicate but strong--impervious to hesitation

ah, the ink blot test, always revealing personalities.

I like the drama, that Commedia dell'arte guy in particular
