bitmapped psychedelia

psychodelic josef“Psychedelic Josef” from my MS Paint Gallery.  There are certain days when there’s nothing to do but dive into this ancient drawing program for an hour or so and see what emerges.  MS Paint– a bitmapped direct connection to the subconscious, of not the id itself.

I am toying with the idea of exploring the concept that the spots on Josef’s hindquarters (normally a fairly sedate dark brown on a reddish brown background) should be drawn as rough spirals.  This will be a more serious issue than it sounds, since Josef’s character design has been more or less unchanged for more than fifteen years.  Looking into your subconscious is a risky business: you might learn something.

    Maybe his spots slowly flow, move, and change. Maybe they reflect different things about his moods, or about the environment around him.

    That is a very Josefy idea.
