New Artwork- Above

above artwork

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.

Crash Site Artworks

These are all the art pieces I created for the album Crash Site by CJ Kane. Each image in this post has a caption showing the title of the song the artwork is for. 

I have created more detailed blog posts for the majority of the pieces, you can see these posts here.

The album is free to download from cj-kane.com and can also be listened to on Soundcloud.

Please check it out and support independent musicians/ artists.

New Artwork: Death of a Pilot

death of a pilot final

Death of a Pilot, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen on handmade paper, 20 x 20 cm

Piece for the fifth and final 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.

Ideas suggested for this piece included ‘airplane, in the sky or possibly crashing (similar to the cover, but different view, or colours, or plane, or angles etc) I was able to revisit some of my Masters artwork with piece- interesting to go back after a year.

With this images, C.J wanted a representation of a plane crash, of course, and I kept the similar fractured silhouette along with colours of bleeding/smoking ink.

I chose this angle for the plane as the cockpit windows and nose cone are easily recognisable- very important with fracturing a familiar, everyday object. I still wanted coherence between the image and representation of a a crashed plane and its connotations.

New Artwork: Crash Site

crash site final

Crash Site, acrylic ink, pigment ink pen on paper, 20 x 20 cm

Piece for the cover of 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.

Ideas suggested for this piece included various parts of a crashed plane/ plane debris at an aircraft crash. Again, I was able to revisit some of my Masters artwork with piece- interesting to go back after a year.

With this images, C.J wanted a representation of a plane crash but from a strong viewpoint for the viewer. The piece had to represent and bring together the other artworks of the album and of course the songs themselves. I kept the similar fractured silhouette- this time the front of the crashed plane’s cockpit- along with colours of bleeding/smoking ink.

I also chose this angle for the plane as the cockpit windows are easily recognisable- very important with fracturing a familiar, everyday object. I still wanted coherence between the image and representation of a a crashed plane and its connotations.

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

firstclass_final_1

first class final

 

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

firstclass_final_2

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.

Plane graveyards are sparking my interest more than usual recently. I’m hoping this will be the start of a decommissioned plane series, this is somewhat of a test piece that turned out better than I was expecting.
