31 Days of Collage #10

31 days of collage #10

|Collage 10 of 31|

Soar- digital collage using vintage magazine scans, vintage postcards, patterned paper scans, books scans, textures and stamps.

Today I wanted to play around with textures again, seeing how many elements I could overlap without overcrowding the overall image. The main aircraft image is from a 1937 aircraft race programme, I duplicated it at different sizes to see if I could effectively use a single image to create a dynamic subject matter.

New Artwork- Above

above artwork framed

Above, mixed media- acrylic ink, tissue paper, ink transfer, ink pen on paper, 10.3 x 15.5cm

A quick little piece to use up a few scrap pieces of paper material- also I love Douglas DC2s and I haven’t drawn any for a while.

I also had a frame to fit this so I actually framed a piece straight away rather than it being rolled and put into art storage.

New Artwork: La Da Da

La Da Da, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen, acrylic paint on canvas board,  25 x 25 cm

Piece for the second song on the album Crash Site. The pieces in this series were commissioned for a music album by C.J Kane.

The second image shows the image with text as it will be shown.

The main visual ideas suggested for this piece were ‘Pine trees (forest) under night sky – white/grey/black/blue/green.’

After some experimentation with different colour combinations I decided to keep the background white- partially to compliment the other pieces made for the album and partially to allow textures to be seen. I felt that it was better for the overall look of the artwork to suggest the idea of a cold evening/night with textures and dark hues rather than flooding the image with black.

I also decided to add the plane silhouette to both complete the gap between the tree tops and reference the album title itself.

New Artwork: First Class

First Class, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen, acrylic paint on canvas board, 21 x 21 cm

Piece for the first song on the album Crash Site. The pieces in this series were commissioned for a music album by C.J Kane.

The second image shows the image with text as it will be shown.

The main idea behind this piece is looking out from an aircraft window- showing the engine, wing and the scene below.

The background ink represents a mix of sky, cloud and mountainous area, I wanted vague representation mixed with a surreal sense of atmosphere. This is mainly to reflect the notion of experiencing a ‘first class’ service on a plane soaring to an exciting destination.

Artwork Rejects

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.
