The topic at Illustration Friday this week is URBAN and I am squeaking in at the last minute with an art journal spread that is very different for me.
Started with a pencil sketch in my ledger journal inspired by a computer screen that we saw at the Science Center in St. Louis. Connor definitely thought I was weird for taking pictures of signage when others were taking pictures of fossils, etc.
Changed things up with patterned paper for the colorful buildings. . .
Glued it all down and painted the middle with gesso/white paint, some stamping and stenciling. Topped if off with a painted silhouette that
was cut from a Gap ad in a magazine and spray painted black. Later I'll cut the middle girl out from the left side and use her on another project.
Quote from Lemony Snicket - seems to be a favorite source of wisdom lately.
This is definitely fun and edgy for the likes of me.
