|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.
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.
A Distinctive Sound, mixed media collage on postcard, 15x10cm
The next piece in my Gotye Project.
The song A Distinctive Sound is on the Australian release of the album Like Drawing Blood. On the International release (the copy I have, being in the UK and all) this is replaced by a new version of the song The Only Thing I Know, originally on the Boardface album. I will be making pieces for both songs in this project.
This track is very much an audial collage of sounds, music and vocals. I wanted to reflect the layers and texture with this piece. The cut text emphasises various ‘lyrics’ throughout the song.
See other artworks in this series here.
I was busy with various things yesterday so I didn’t have time to upload yesterday’s Inktober piece. I decided to upload both yesterday’s and today’s ink pieces together.
A small ink piece on an off cut of cardboard- it’s starting to feel like Autumn here in the UK finally- I wanted to reflect this.
I created this drawing on a collaged page in my Moleskine- the page is covered with train ticket scans and gesso as a base for the top ink.
Sit and Stir, paper, ceramic, paint, ink, collage in box frame, 11.5 x 11.5cm
Another box frame completed with a shard of my broken mug.
I have two pieces left of the mug but they’re much larger than this, may have to get a couple of larger frames as i really do love making these.
I’m also thinking about selling them, will have to be in the UK however as I’d be worried about them surviving shipping overseas.
