I had a few ideas for this weeks challenge.
1. There was an idea that I had that used stamps... but I seem to have misplaced my stamp stash (a whole flipping tackle box!) and so that I idea was squashed.
2. Next I thought about doing a piece focusing on the many women that inspire me... but the idea was scattered and not coming together.
Then I found this picture of Picasso...
... and I knew exactly what had to happen...

I wouldn't exactly call Picasso a hero. He is one of the greatest artists who has ever lived, but he was also a bit of a dick. However, I could not pass up the opportunity to make a pocket sized Pablo in tights.
So what's the lesson this week? It's okay to be silly in your work. Being silly is a valid way to explore a concept/challenge and opens the door to even more ideas. As an added bonus, it can remove fear and gives you freedom over your own work.
