This exercise from the Steal Like An Artist Journal only went one step of the way:
If I were to convert this exercise to a digital form, I would want to add some complexity. Rather than simply captioning shapes, I would want to turn shapes and other simple images into memes. How much can you pull out of something as toneless as a square?
When you have a common meme image at your disposal, it isn't terribly difficult to come up with a passable meme. But when life throws you a flat yellow ellipse, it can take some serious squeezing to get that nectar flowing. Why not allow the challenge to have its go?
