Stepped Tea, acrylic ink and pigment ink pen on paper, 9 x 15cm
The is my first little bit of experimentation with cutting and reassembling drawings.
This image was originally drawn and inked on 200gsm paper and cut into strips. I then reassembled the image with the strips staggered to disjoint the image. I then added white ink splatters over the top of the image recreate continuity of the image.
I will be making a few more of these type of images, however I think I will create smaller strips to reassemble to emphasise the intended effect.
My entry for this week’s Illustration Friday theme: Tail
Tea and Tail, collage paper, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen, watercolours on paper, 21 x 15cm.
Two mixed media ink pieces inspired by Cora aka vintageortacky on Youtube. She’s great to draw and has such an interesting style- go check out her videos if you haven’t already.
The first piece is purely pen and ink on textured paper, the second is ink and watercolour with a digital background and frame to complete the piece.
Hopefully I’ve done the original costumes justice with these illustrations.
Two pieces of work that were not chosen for the final album pieces. These artworks illustrate the same song, as you can see, I decided to try different approaches to demonstrate the view from a commercial aircraft window.
Each piece is acrylic ink and paint on card and cleaned up/slightly re-arranged in photoshop.
I’m aiming to post a detailed blog post on each piece that was selected for the album and how they fit together as a project.
I dreamed of the moon as a timeless clock, acrylic ink, acrylic paint, ink pen, ink stamp, collage on card, 12 x 21cm
My penultimate piece in my Loqui series. I think this one really reflects many of the techniques I have been trying out recently.
I wanted to have a lot of imagery in this piece but also for it to not look overcrowded. I did plan the composition of this one quite precisely.
I dreamed of the moon as a timeless clock
As if it slipped off its face
into the ocean
of the night.
Not an utter tick,
just the soft silver-blue
of the waves in its light.
Faceless but infamous,
as the stars we laid under and named by numbers.
A distant whisper of hands
as mute as swan.
in the muffling pillows
fed to the warm sheets
of the waterless sand.
I saw a gull glide, dreamless.
A slide along the air.
just the slow
under its wing.
