System – collage using vintage magazine scans, various vintage paper, stamps and photographs.

I went for something a little different for todays collage, this is mainly just a result of me experimenting with different ideas and textures.

31 Days of Collage #1

|Collage 1 of 31|

For August I wanted to give myself a little challenge/task to complete. Recently I’ve been following and been inspired by a lot of collage artists so I figured I’d do 31 Days of Collage.

Every day I’ll make and post a new collage (digital or physical collage depending on time constraints within that day)

I’m also thinking that at the end of the month it would be nice to offer them as prints if people are interested.

Artwork Commission

tattoo design

 

Cleaned up, added thicker lines and red accents to this commission piece. The client wanted a piece like this inspired by vices- gambling, drinking etc

This is acrylic ink, gel pen and pigment ink pen on paper.

Finished two art pieces for a group exhibition in a couple of weeks. Both landscapes are based on places in my local area.

Each artwork has layers of image transferred vintage diagrams and acrylic ink on the paper underneath the drawings.

Textures- Works in Progress

Spent a couple of hours in Photoshop extracting and putting together some diagram, texture and collage pieces ready to transfer to paper. Many of these diagrams are taken from the British Library’s public domain albums on Flickr.

These will make up the base textures to a coupe of artworks that will be submitted to exhibitions over the next couple of weeks.

I’m planning to print, cut and paste some parts and image transfer some parts using both gel medium and acetate printing techniques. Once on the paper the textures will be drawn, painted and inked over.

New Artwork- Test Card

test card artwork

 

Test Card, ink pen, watercolour, colour fineliner, acrylic ink, white gel pen, 9x19cm

The small testcard was challenging to get looking right, I ended up using my mini colourful Stablio fineliners to colour in the sections.
