The whole Multicolored Experimental Headache digital series actually grew from an idea of creating a story about colors. I wrote a short story about how the colors tried to take over my art studio! So, it wasn’t much of a stretch to come up with a story featuring the colors for some images in a digital art series.
Multicolored Experimental Headache
The Digital Series
The series consists of 25 digital images, all based on an original series of geometric shapes. Many of the images have a little story featuring colors, explaining what I can see in the image. Below is some examples of the digital images and their story. By the way, I named the series as I did because in some ways it did turn out to be something of a headache. It was a big undertaking to produce such a large series; writing the little stories helped keep me going. But it was a relief when I had finished it I have to say.
Examples From Series
Fire Colors Have A Party
And the fire colors, red, yellow and orange, got together with their distant cousin purple and the black sheep of the family and decided to have a party. They found some basic digitally created geometric shapes and spread themselves around on it until they all agreed it made a very dynamic design.
Full Of Love
On a day when the world awoke full of love, the shades of pink decided to celebrate this unusual event. They found some digitally created geometric forms and mingled themselves above it, with some accent colors of green, yellow and tinge of black to show them at their best.
Imagine a world of tiny people living in high rise apartments who want their homes to be bright and cheery and so painted them shades of pink. Blue tones add to the architectural impression.
The Hidden Map Makers
Within the shifting sands of the earth live a hidden colony of map makers. Layer upon layers of maps exist, plotting the universe and the human heart. All waiting in the depths of the earth to be discovered.
The Rain Fell
And when the watercolor was finished, the rain fell and all the colors gently mingled and covered all of the available surfaces.
The colors attacked fast, starting at the bottom layer and gradually working their way up through the pile. The top layer thought it was safe but it gradually felt its surface starting to change as a rash of color started to gently appear.
The burgundy/magenta barrier was proving effective, in spite of some marks and scratches the invaders had not made it as far as the beautiful deep blue.
The Alien Space Craft
A strobe light from an alien space craft hit the colors as they ran away, creating swirling patterns of mingling rainbow colors and movement as they fled.
The vandals had done their work and the colors had all been scraped away from the surface of the shapes, just revealing the bare metal. The colors hid away and regrouped ready to make a come back when the time was right.
I hope you enjoyed a quick look at my digital art series. I think the colors had fun, don’t you? You can see the full series and purchase prints at my ArtHeroes (Europe), Pictorem (North America) and RedBubble (Worldwide) stores.
