Rusty Selfie

Selfie fine art

My first selfie of the year. I’m trying something new here. I am taking the ultimate acid trip (not what you think, as you shall soon see).

I’ve gotten some scrap sheet metal from dad’s workshop and stenciled the shapes with tape and Xacto knife. Afterwards, this was the scary part, I sprayed some muriatic acid onto the sheet, surviving the nasty fumes that burned off the metal, after which I rinsed with water and scraped off the tape stencil. Now initially the metal didn’t change much of a color, it took a few days for the rusty hue to appear when there was no tape.

Some interesting lessons I’ve learned, I intend to play with the metal and acid some more. I am working on video of the process, I’ll have that uploaded to show soon.

Have good evening.

Lisa Lee is an artist and writer based in Southern California. She was educated at Cal State University Long Beach where she received her BFA in Illustration, and originally focused her career goal in animation and/or comic books. After eight years freelancing on various projects from web graphics to concept art she now devotes full time to painting and drawing as well as writing and producing graphic novels. She combines her past experiences in animation and graphic art with the elements of modern masters such as Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Haring. Much of her style revolves around Expressionism and Pop Art, and she treats each piece independently of one another; in short, she uses different styles and techniques for different subject matters. Her interests spans a wide array, from social and political issues, popular culture, movies, history, mythology, and her own personal experiences. She tends to shift back and forth between the light and the dark side; her work will often reflect her mood. When not associating herself with art Lisa enjoys movies, listening to music, driving around aimlessly, and occasionally dabbles on weird hobbies such as cooking, jewelrymaking, and picking weeds.
