Sloganize. How did we get to here?...
Like several of my pieces, Sloganize started by laying down some shapes (fabric-wrapped cardboard to be precise) on canvas and riffing off of what was there. The original shape had both the negative shapes of a thought cloud bubble, and the head silhouette of Frankenberry. Since I had the head shape, shortly after I added the negative shape of the body to help strengthen the idea of a figure.
Sloganize is a word I bat around from time to time, and it seemed appropriate given the source inspiration material for the head.
With the base colors in place, I added some more color complexity.
Dried and ready for some line work.
Normally here is when I would show several images of just the line work. However, it's highly possible that I was so excited to add colors to the first layer of line work, that I forgot to document just the line work. I apologize for this slight breech of etiquette...
A few more colors to finish of this first layer.
Sloganzie is gonna sit around for a few days (weeks?) so I can live with it and see what it might need (visually) to go further. That being said, this is one of the rare instances in which I am quite satisfied with how the piece has turned out, so there is a good chance that this might be its final iteration.
