Splat Art: Blops and Dribbles in Need of Your Scribbles
At Klutz, we know that young artists find blank pages very intimidating. So we love that every spread of Splat Art features full-colour photographic images of your basic everyday stuff: fingerprints, fungus, paint drips, paper wads, cabbages, coffee rings, and more. Draw a few simple lines right on the page and — voila! — these messes turn into masterpieces.
To prevent "what-do-I-draw" anxiety, friendly line-drawn characters pop in from the margins to offer helpful ideas. Transform a frilly fern into a dinosaur. Build a button robot. Scare up some spooky tissue ghosts. Of course, those are just suggestions. You can — and should — draw anything you want.
A word of warning: Once you start seeing the world for its splat art potential, it's hard to stop. Ink splats become aliens, palm prints become elephants, butcher paper becomes penguin-populated icebergs. And you? Become an artist.Click here for more
