New Artwork- 1968

Scan 4

1968, collage, acrylic ink, acrylic paint and pen on paper, 14.5 x 21cm

This is a piece inspired by the Flower Bed song 1968- one of my favourite songs by the band.

It is a simple art piece in terms of composition but I wanted to reflect the atmosphere of the short and beautiful song- I didn’t want to make it overall complex.

The cut text is a short lyric from the song also, I believe these words were specific inspiration for the piece.

The concept was also inspired by this stock by senju-hime-stock.

Illustration Friday- Beard

IFbeards
Idiot
, watercolour and collage text on paper,16x12cm

As this week’s Illustration Friday topic is beard and I happen to be a watcher ofWheezywaiter videos (a beardlover if you will) I thought I should create something focused around Craig and his loverly beard.

I also then decided to add my favourite quote of his, because why not.

Works in Progress

Currently working on a few pieces using scraps from other projects- this is why I really don’t like to throw anything away.

The first is a box frame piece- trying to use some big pieces of my unfortunately smashed mug. I have a few more pieces that I will use in other ways too.

The last two are scraps of paper collaged with a light wash of gesso ready for some linework and ink. I’m still not entirely sure what they will finish up as.

New Artwork- Pick A Card

Scan 5

 

Pick a Card, acrylic ink, collage and acetate prints on paper, 14.8 x 21 cm

This is a small piece inspired by meeting the lovely Damon Conlan in Shop in the Square,Wolverhampton last Friday. Card tricks were performed, ideas were exchanged, art was inspired.

The playing card with my name on it (card trick leftovers, the best kind of leftovers of course) was central to this piece, I also scanned the back of the card and used it as a small background for the magician.
