Illustration Friday- Smart
Tag Archives: works on paper
Completed the line art form my brother’s next tattoo- a continuation of a sleeve depicting zodiac signs for each family member. This is for Taurus as I’m sure you can see.
Researching bulls for this piece made me realise how unusually shaped their bodies are.
I may use some of the sketches I made for this in some other artwork- I do like to reuse old sketches and pieces.
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.
Please check it out and support independent musicians/ artists.
As this week’s Illustration Friday topic is beard and I happen to be a watcher ofWheezywaiter videos (a beardlover if you will) I thought I should create something focused around Craig and his loverly beard.
I also then decided to add my favourite quote of his, because why not.
My finished Sokolum piece. This is acrylic ink and pen on cardstock, 21 x 21cm
Recently I have decided to create some artwork inspired by various Youtubers I have been watching for years. It’s not much but I wanted to give something back.
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.
