Inktober #29 | Gotye Project Piece

[Inktober #29 and 8th Gotye Piece]

I decided to combine today’s inktober ink piece and a piece for my Gotye Project as I am long overdue adding another artwork to that project.

This is Seven Hours with a Backseat Driver- music and video here on Youtube

This piece is layered writing with an ink pen, acrylic ink applied with a brush (and moved about with a water spritzer) and a final detailing with acrylic in and a small brush.

I took inspiration from the song title itself and the mood of the instrumental song. As it is near Halloween I also wanted to bring out a creepiness in my interpretation of the music.

Hopefully I should be back on track with this project- so many other things have overtaken my time this year. I like to be able to have time to reflect on my ideas about a song and work out the main themes, artwork layering and composition etc. I like to take into consideration music mood, lyrics and Wally’s original musical intention.

A little bit of Morticia and Gomez, because you can’t really ever have enough Addams Family.

Another Inktober update. Another busy couple of days has prevented me actually getting online long enough to upload these so here are 4 days of drawings.

Went walking through the Halloween aisles at The Range yesterday.
Pieces 22 and 23 are based on some of the decorations that were there.

I also bought myself a pumpkin tea light holder from there so a good day overall.

I decided to make the last three pieces around Welcome to Night Vale as I saw their live show in Birmingham on Sunday 19th October.

The show was amazing and the venue was perfect- the Glee Club, Birmingham. I even managed to get my tickets and Night Vale tour poster signed by the cast after the show.

Each of these inktober pieces is 7.66 x 6.71cm and is acrylic ink and Pigma ink pen on 250gsm paper.
