how hard for a non-drawer to mosaic?
I can't draw to save my life, and my previous mosaic attempts have been confined to geometric and abstract shapes. Now I've got a new project in mind and I'm wondering how to go about it. There's a band that I cherish, called the Avett Brothers, and in July they're releasing a new album. They recently left their small record label and signed with Columbia Records, and their upcoming album is being produced by Rick Rubin (BIG name in the music biz for those who are unfamiliar).
I've become somewhat acquainted with the band during the many times that I've caught them live. We're not golfing buddies or anything by any means, but they recognize me and call me by name and chat a bit when I get out to see them a few times per year.
The piece that I'm planning will consist of a theme from the cover art of their last small-label album entitled Emotionalism
combined with a theme based on the title of their next release called "I and Love and You". I'm not sure what it will be yet, but I'm thinking either an old barn with the phrase scrawled on the side, or maybe the phrase in clouds. I envision the bird clutching the heart and flowers sitting on a tree branch & looking towards the other portion of the piece. The one BIG hurdle is that I can't draw. Any suggestions on how to make this happen? Or is this a bit too ambitious for a non-drawer such as myself?
