The first SIA inspiration of the year – the cover of the Pacific Northwest literary compilation Creative Colloquy, by tattoo artist Bismark Pinera – is a bit of a challenge for me. There are a lot of colors and graphic elements that I can’t faithfully recreate using what I have in my closet, so eventually, I just pulled out the most colorful pieces and put them together in a way that can represent the painting as best as I could. I’m not entirely happy with it – for one thing, my outfit is too dark compared to the painting – but I guess I’m just being a perfectionist.
Don’t forget to check Jen’s blog on Wednesday to see how everybody interprets this super cool painting!
