TINGLERS – Drip Monsters of Gojira Island

Have you ever taken a Rorschach test?  You know the psychology test where you are shown an inkblot and you have to determine what the amorphous shape reminds you of.  Well, in my case I always see critters…especially wild and fantastical monsters.  In this workshop we are going to create our own monsters by first making a random spatter and then modifying that splatter into some fantastical creature using paint.  Some might have wings, or fur, or tentacles, or seventeen arms…it is all up to the luck of the splatter.  One thing I have found over the years is that if you start from something random the results are always exciting, fresh and incredibly weird.
