15 day draw, part 2

Drawings 6-9 of my art sprint. I’ve been developing my analog/digital mixed workflow, and developing material for my personal wiki project.

Prompt 6: “Sheltering in Mt Vit”

This is not the first time I’ve been fascinated with tafoni. Then a recent trip to Utah rekindled the passion.

Materials

  • Faber-Castell pens on water color paper (Punjab 270 gsm)

Reference materials

  • Photos of tafoni erosion

Prompt 7: “Bubbles”

This one I had hours of struggle for inspiration, and then ended up doing something a little tangential to the prompt. Pleased with this one. I used the “ripple” filter in photoshop, and I’m pleased with the effect. I’ll be using this again.

Materials

  • Faber-Castell pens on Canson Mi Teintes colored paper

Reference materials

  • “M.C. Escher: the graphic work”

Prompt 8: “Second Founding”

A sequel to prompt 2, “First Founding”.

Materials

  • Faber-Castell pens on Canson Mi Teintes colored paper

Reference materials

  • “Walter Anderson: Birds”
  • “The Carved Line: Block Printmaking in New Mexico”

Prompt 9: Hammer

Materials

  • Prismacolor color pencils and Faber-Castell pens on Canson Mi Teintes colored paper

Reference materials

  • “Walter Anderson: Birds”
  • “Cutting Edge: Modernist British Printmaking” (a pretty direct homage to Sybil Andrews here)
  • “Vida Americana: Mexican Muralists”
