|Inktober #18 #19 #20|
I decided to make the last three pieces around Welcome to Night Vale as I saw their live show in Birmingham on Sunday 19th October.
The show was amazing and the venue was perfect- the Glee Club, Birmingham. I even managed to get my tickets and Night Vale tour poster signed by the cast after the show.
Each of these inktober pieces is 7.66 x 6.71cm and is acrylic ink and Pigma ink pen on 250gsm paper.
Puzzle with a piece missing, ink, cut text, ink pen, acetate print, 17.3 x 23cm
The next piece done for my ongoing Gotye project.
With this piece I wanted to capture the overall sombre feeling of the song. I decided to use muted blue and purple ink accented with simple black and white. I also wanted the figure to look and solemn reflective with the jigsaw texture (and the absent pieces) as an obvious link to the song title.
The subtle graphics in the background ink is a collage made in Photoshop from vintage diagrams and text, printed onto acetate and then onto the ink base. The text in the piece is a couple of lines from the song.
See other artworks in this series here.
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.

Until the Future, acrylic ink,text image transfer, ink stamp, acrylic paint, cut paper on canvas, 59.4 x 42cm
The person who commissioned the piece wanted it focused around the colours of black and teal and various states of melting butterflies- representing the past, present and future.
I aged the look of he canvas and added various types of texts in the background- taken from my own scans of vintage books.
To bring the image and concepts together I also added the image of a clock face and a compass windrose to literally represent both time and direction.
