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: Moleskine Pages

stories

Stories, acrylic ink, collage, cut text and pigment ink pen in Moleskine sketchbook.

Cut text reads:

That is the time of the year,

full of fog,

and little

consciousness.

I looked forward to tea,

and stories

in front of cheap

success.

Late Night Art Experimentation

Scan 4

Playing around with some art scraps and ink because I can’t sleep. Not quite sure what I’ll make this into but I’ll see how it goes.

Digital Sketching Experimentation

Morrissey2

I don’t usually sketch/doodle digitally however I downloaded this pencil Photoshop brush from Andantonius and have been playing around with it a little bit. I love the texture of the brush and it really is lovely to draw with in Photoshop.

I thought it would be quite interesting to experiment with sketching things out digitally, print them onto good quality paper and then finish them with inks.

I decided to create a quick, rough outline sketch of Morrissey just because. I’m not sure if I quite like the overall composition of the image and I probably won’t continue to a finished image with it.

I do want to make an ink piece with Morrissey as the subject though so I may have to try out different poses/ compositions  until I’m happy enough with them to take it to a completed artwork.

New Artwork: Sokolum Inspired

My finished Sokolum piece. This is acrylic ink and pen on cardstock, 21 x 21cm

Recently I have decided to create some artwork inspired by various Youtubers I have been watching for years. It’s not much but I wanted to give something back.

Heather/ Sokolum is a pretty awesome and inspiring makeup artist- check her out on: Youtube| Twitter| Instagram

Small Artwork: Stepped Tea

img294

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.

For reference I used this stock from liam-stock on DA
