Moleskine sketches and planning

Moleskinepage_wiredollprep_watermark

 

Sketches and mixed media planning for an art piece in my Moleskine. This piece is inspired by a doll/lamp in grav3yardgirl‘s latest antique hall video.

I mainly wanted to experiment with texture, collage and media that would reflect the condition and eerie charm of the doll and see what would work in the final piece.

I’m very much looking forward to starting this artwork.

New Artwork: Illustration Friday- Reflection

IF_Reflection_watermark

 

I did something a little fun for this week’s Illustration Friday themeReflection.

I had this bizarre idea on the way back from Birmingham. There were some cherry pickers parked near the motorway- a couple were orange with brown spots (possibly rust, I don’t know) and I thought it resembled the marking on a giraffe.

Ink, watercolour, ink stamps on paper.

I wanted to create a little something in memory of Leonard Nimoy, a kind and inspiring man to many.

A Distinctive Sound

A Distinctive Sound, mixed media collage on postcard, 15x10cm

The next piece in my Gotye Project.

The song A Distinctive Sound is on the Australian release of the album Like Drawing Blood. On the International release (the copy I have, being in the UK and all) this is replaced by a new version of the song The Only Thing I Know, originally on the Boardface album. I will be making pieces for both songs in this project.

This track is very much an audial collage of sounds, music and vocals. I wanted to reflect the layers and texture with this piece. The cut text emphasises various ‘lyrics’ throughout the song.
