My Mindful Workings by SMontoya

Currently unavailable for purchase

In this project we were given an assignment to create a surreal artwork inspired by Jerico Santander.
I choose to use my all time favorite hobbies in this work, reading and writing. You always hear about books being an escape to another world, and for me it is. That’s why the inside of the book has become its own little world. And this world is now held up by my newfound love for drawing (hence the drawing mannequin).
Once again my main tool used in this work are the Blending Modes, man, this thing is like magic. Another tool I used a lot in this project is the Layer Mask. For most of my pictures I couldn’t cut them out from their original background without horribly disfiguring them. So I used the Layer Mask to make all the unwanted parts in my first cut out to “disappear.”
