I was feeling Janis Joplin-y today when I imitated this photograph that I pulled out of my inspiration folder. At first I tried imitating the photo exactly, pulling my armchair into the corner of the room and throwing a cover over it. Unfortunately, this didn’t work because after a few takes I realized that the chair was so huge it reduced me to looking like a 6-year-old playing dress-up (and that’s no fun). I almost gave up, but I’m glad I didn’t because I really liked how it turned out, even though it’s not quite the carbon-copy I was aiming for.
