The cover for my updated grad project, a graphic novel.
This was done on Yupo paper, which is basically a thin sheet of plastic paper. It produces lovely stuff, with the interesting caveat that it never dries! Ink in thicker spots on the page will stay there pretty much forever, so you can keep working with it until you’re satisfied. The paper absorbs the oils from your hand though, so wear gloves when handling. (I didn’t know that, so you can kind of see where the paper started rejecting the ink) Also, because the paper is plastic, it does NOT like heat and should never be hit with a blow dryer or it will warp!
I have maybe been listening to a lot of Welcome to Night Vale, and it combined with a school project on detournement.
If only the woodpecker sighs
the wolf were as soft as he cries
the hungry skies
For a long time I really wasn’t fond of my line art style. I’ve come back around to it now, and I feel so confident and happy about the things I’m producing. I think it’s easy to tell when an artist loves what they’re working on, and believe you me I loved the work I did on this piece.
The poem included is a re-hashing of Louis Sachar’s poem from ‘Holes’.
My piece in the Transformation show this past weekend!!!
Wow though- curatorship is hard. It was a lot of work to see this show through, but not so much work that I would never do it again haha. On the contrary, I’d love to do another one next year. The response from everyone who came to see the show was phenominal- loads of compliments and so many amazing surprised reactions from everybody. The food was delicious and the company sublime. My thanks to everybody who came out!
If you didn’t get a chance to see it, there’s pictures on the TUC Facebook page and the show remains open 9am to 1pm until Friday the 13th.
My piece for Transformation is finally complete! I got a little distracted this weekend, with a promotion at work and my birthday and everything, but I’m ready to do this. Hope I see you there on Friday!
