I decided to get painterly again!
And it was fun.
For those process-lovers...
I started out with marker and quick-sketched lots of different concepts. Here are my faves:
At first, I started drawing in Illustrator, but most people in the MATS Bootcamp were going digital right away, and I couldn't get the kind of texture in the marks that I wanted. And I felt like I couldn't really get that kind of energy using just vector imaging. So, I went painterly. I was so happy to get painting! I adjoined 4 square canvases and painted them as if they were one. I used paper, paint, ink, fabric, and all kinds of pens.
|See the seams where the canvases met?|
Then, I sliced them apart with an exacto blade and scanned them individual at a very high resolution. I then took it to Photoshop where I painted and patched the seams, collaged some more, and then added the text. And there you have it!
So what's the poster about? Well, it's a real event happening in Brighton, and I'm super excited to be going! It includes speakers and networking, and best of all... it's in Brighton! I cannot wait to visit the city. I've heard such great things, and can't wait to see for myself! You can find out more information about the Global Art Gathering here
