I spent quite a while musing over what to throw at you this month. I ruled out immediately something “Christmasy”. That would be dull, boring, predictable. That and there’s nothing in my Pictonaut folder that is even vaguely Christmasy. Yes I have a folder of pictures for this interweb based shenanigans. I am ever prepared and ready, as uncharacteristic as that might be or sound. Eventually my computer made the decision for me. Over the past three days this image has cropped up with unevering regularity. With it being only 1 of 155 possible desktop images to choose from I took it to be a sign.
The picture is the work of one Shou Tajima. It has a name, I found it out, I hunted it down like a ravenous dog (by which I mean I googled it, I googled it good, I googled it to death), but I’ll not reveal it to you until the end of the month, lest it colour your opinions and ideas. I want you fresh and pure, I want your brain meats unmolested by outside influence. To you it shall be known only as The Psychedelic Lady. The image is a personal favourite of mine. I like the way those blocks of bright luminous neon shades contrast with the flat grey. It somehow breathes life into it, fills it fill an artistic vitality, a fundamental vibrancy that is so lacking in the harsh world around us.
So with the picture at your disposal let’s set the fiction mill a-grinding, sharpen up our plot swords and journey out into the untamed wild-lands of imagination.
