Winning the tournament gave me a great surge of inspiration and motivation, so I wrapped up all the pieces I had been working on over the break. After that, I spent some time looking at found art for some new inspiration. I came across this series of works by Danielle Clough called "What a Racket."

The idea was wonderfully executed and I find myself wondering how many rackets I have at home that I could turn into works of art. No embroidery though. I was thinking using the racket as the frame and stretching canvas where the gut would be, but using the gut strings to secure the canvas in place. I'll have to think on it more and maybe talk to my restringer to see if it could be done using metal eyelets to prevent the gut from damaging the canvas.

This is my favorite one of the series:

Wow, that's so creative! The details the artist did and the colours used were astonishing.

It's very pleasant to see an artist inspiring another artist - turning your racket into canvas is such a brilliant idea. I would certainly be looking forward to your artworks.

No need to apologise. Given the source I was not expecting it to be.

My mistake of course. I should not have expected you to be inspired by anything the word impressive could be used for.

May I ask where you found that?

[personal profile] free_rin 2016-01-18 10:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Did you see it in person?
free_rin: (sensei)

[personal profile] free_rin 2016-01-19 11:47 am (UTC)(link)
Yeah, it looks like something that would be even more impressive in Person.

Those look... um, really nice, sho. Especially the fifth one.

I'd love to see your, um, racket canvases when you're finished, sho.

All of those are so beautiful! It's amazing how people are so creative with things you wouldn't normally use for art.

Using your racket as a canvas is such an amazing idea. Please show us your work! I know I would love to see it.

[personal profile] starvillager 2016-01-20 04:42 am (UTC)(link)
Yes! It's always so inspiring seeing how people can think of the most amazing things out of something simple.

You are welcome Yukimura-san! Your artwork gives me inspiration.

I feel the rackets that Rokkaku are famous for would be ideal for this sort of craft.

That really is super creative! Never really thought about using a racket as a canvas. Tell me how that goes, don't want to be a copy cat...No pun intended but it seems like something cool to work on.
