I usually spend time a fair amount of time deliberating before adding my mark to a new Collab Nation piece – but when I got my Stage 2 through from Korp I immediately knew what I was going to add!
One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for Experiment 5!
This huge international drawing project has each participating artist starting a drawing on A3 paper, then sending it on to the next artist for them to add to the piece. This continues until 4 artists have added their mark to the drawing. The process produces awesome and brilliantly unpredictable results!
I’ve been doing some more experimenting with textured grayscale fills – playing with pencils, markers, and a combination of both. It’s taken a few attempts to get the results as I’d like, but I’m finding a flow that I’m happy with now. Here area few favourites.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that I’ve been getting back into Sketchbooking this year. I’ve never been big on keeping a sketchbook so I’ve had to make a conscious effort to do so in order to get into the habit.
I’m terrible at keeping sketchbooks – I don’t see them as much more than pads of paper so I’m forever cutting pages out to use for other things, or filling them with to-do lists and meeting notes instead of drawings, or just generally defeating the object of having one!
One of my favourite collaborative art projects, Collab Nation, is back for another round with Experiment 4!
I created a new robot character this weekend while working on some colouring experiments.
Those of you who follow me on twitter have probably seen a fair amount tweets about the Collaberation (Inter)Nation(al) project I’ve been taking part in this year.
After the success of the Gilbert & Sullivan illustration back in April – I was stoked to be teaming up with Interior Design firm, Davindi again to create another illustration for a venue refurbishment. This time, the commission was for the Rose Villa Tavern in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
