Sketch variation

I like this variation. Good use of closure my art teacher would say...

Sketch with Pattern

I'd like the faces to be framed by patterns - they will take ages to cut out of lino, but I think it will be worth it.

Penitent Men: planning sketch

Planning sketches in photoshop; this way I can play with colour and concept quite quickly

Test Sketch

Another Photoshop Sketch. I'm thinking of using these as the basis for further lino prints in my Penitent Men series. Although this one doesn't look too penitent.

Sketching Faces

I'm busy learning how to use my drawing tablet in Photoshop. This sketch is based on Head of a Negro (1778); an oil painting by John Singleton Copley.

Postcard Brief - Back

And this is the back of the postcard. We had to use a self-portrait, and so this is the one that is recognisable. I used my pen tablet in Photoshop to do a sketch over the top of a photograph.

Postcard Brief - Front

This is the front of the postcard we had to design for art class. I've used a vector background that I did in Inkscape and then collaged a bunch of new stuff over the top. The coloured background is a photograph taken of food drawings we did.

Penitent Men (2)

This was the second Penitent Man print that I did using the big roller at art class. I need to get one. A pity they cost thousands and weigh a tonne.

Penitent Men (1)

First in a series of lino prints I'm working on. I printed these at art class. My idea is for a series of Penitent Men, about 12 in total.
