Some objects catch my attention immediately. Whether it is their color, shape, texture, or just the memories that the evoke, I need to document them somehow and store them away in my image bank. Recently, I saw these wonderful yo-yos at the Pajama Squid. I was immediately drawn in by the color and the fact that I really wanted to feel them. They reminded me of sweet tarts (the candy) and I bought one in almost every color. They ended up being father's day gifts (my dad has the blue one), but they are also just really nice to have around as objects. I have been especially drawn to fedoras again lately too. I got Sayer and Chris similar fedoras for father's day. I remember using them as a staple image in drawings & paintings back in my college days and I find that they still creep into my artwork every now and then.
I enjoy image collecting and acknowledging objects that catch my eye. I pull them out when I need some inspiration or just when I want to create a fun narrative with them. I'm not exactly sure how yo-yos and fedoras are going to inspire a klt:works creation, but I have been thinking about it for days. What are some favorite objects that you have been drawn to lately?
