Funki Fungi

While these pictures  might seem the result of imbibing some ancient hallucinogenic concoction, I do assure you they’re simply the result of playing with ‘image-altering’ software. Enjoy . . .


To lead . . . with its ‘acidic’ cast


Something softer . . .


Same photo, different treatment


‘Turning Japanese’


As Alice would say, ‘Curiouser and curiouser.’ A metallic mushroom


Inkcap #1 in shocking pink . . .


Inkcap #2 ready to print


Truly . . . fairy-;ed


A romantic vision . . . close as two hearts


Part on my ‘fabrics collection’ . . . crimson-on-gold


Another potential textile design . . . blue-on-gold


And another, this for the ‘Autumn Collection’


Burgundy balls to bounce us back to Wonderland


What witch’s brew might this blood-stained chalice hold?


‘Through the Looking Glass’ . . . to bookend the series

Editing software used:

  • Picasa (preloaded on my laptop)
  • CorelDraw & PhotoPaint (very old version, had since 2006!)
  • Polarr Online Editor (only discovered this past week)

    The blue-on-gold possible textile design gets my thumbs up. And while I did not see Jesus, the Inkcap in shocking pink somehow made me think of Cousin Itt from the U.S. TV series “The Addams Family.”

      I might have prefaced this series of images with a note to the effect that, while with the flowers in the summer my aim was to transform them into something ‘other’, and generally abstract, with these my intent was to keep the fungi’s form. Which, mostly, I have. My person favourite is the other Inkcap, the one that looks kinda ‘inky’, and like a litho-print or some such.
