I generally keep packing I find interesting. It either gets stored away in one of many boxes ready to be put into my book of collected ephemera or used in artwork in some way.
As you can imagine, I didn’t want to throw my beautiful Illamasqua packaging away, so I decided to make things with them.
This is an eyeshadow box; I have 2 other eyeshadow boxes and a lipstick box that I have yet to decide what to do with.
I opened up the box and added ink to the back panel. I then cut a few different shapes out from previously ink coloured card and layered them with foam stickers on top of each other for dimension. I finally stuck a small inked bird to the inside of the front panel. I painted the box black, leaving only Illamasqua and the line Make-up for your alter ego. I took the Burst name sticker off the top of the box and added it to the front to title the piece.
Actually remembered to take a better photo of this with my DSLR.
Psychonauts Razputin card I made for my boyfriend. Raz is the protagonist in the game Psychonauts by Tim Schafer’s game studio Double Fine, one of my favourite games alongside Monkey Island and Grim Fandango.
The card is acrylic ink on handmade paper, attached to cardstock background and folded white card.
Wish I’d have picked a better background image for Raz but there were no complaints.
A couple of better images of the final works in place, these are all in the same studio/gallery space on opposite walls. The works have been titled and framed documents added to the side of the works.
The documents are a crash summary report facts and a passenger safety card of the plane operator and model. When these are shown in a gallery setting in october I am hoping to display them a little better and be able to add more ephemera relating to the plane itself.
Not shown (will add a photo later) is my accompanying work and research for this semesters work submitted for assessment. I will also make a further blog post on specific artists and how I have been inspired by their work.
