Here are a couple experiments from my design class that i just finished (believe it of not, my first art class ever, but i was mostly self taught before that) a test before I did my final, which I did it stipling, which is wayyy nicer looking than my crosshatching, but I don't have a picture of it yet.
I joined the book club, and our group's book was Alice's adventures in wonderland and Through the looking glass.
I started drawing this up before realizing the scope of it - I decided that not only would it be awkward/spendy to ship, but it might be a little bit above a medium/small, after putting about 30 hours into it.(instead of homework, but who's counting.) anyway - here are the original sketch up and the painting.
The painting is from my phone - i didn't want to charge my batteries for my digital camera.
So.. I didn't really create anything here. I received two plastic beakers full of candy, got rid of the candy and filled them with soaps, popped a pump in of them and called it good - I also have two thick glass bottles i received as a gift, one has soap, the other has red bath balls in it, and there is an empty beaker for flowers. Of course, the two bloody handprints, and a bunch of mixed pillars.
I think the pillars are a bit strange looking - all of my pillars are the same diameter for some reason, and most of them are the same height. It's kind of creepy.
anyways.. here it is.. and yes, my bathroom is bright red
I am trying to make a bunch of christmas presents. one of my best friends is male, and hard to shop for. I bought some fabrics of his favorite things (star wars, the beatles, transformers) with the intent of making him some grocery bags and maybe a ditty bag, but after some rhetorical probing, i was feeling uneasy about them.. (I'll just have to off-put the girliness of the gifts with some home made chocolates and candy.
here is my first grocery bag, modeled after the smaller bags - this fabric was limited. Also - it is full of fabric because it is pretty lightweight, so it looks a bit lumpy!
The Ash shirt is fabric paint - White on Orange, I put too much on and the paper started to stick to the paint, so it looks weird. Plus I used freezer paper as both a stencil and to keep it from bleeding to through, so I think that had something to do with the reaction of the paper. (Also - the flash kind of makes it look like there is a shadow - that's not there.)
I have been super inspired by all of the tshirt surgery sites out there. I finally got a good technique for bleach stencils, and It translates perfectly for fabric paint, minus the spray bottle.
I hate the necks on tshirts (fruit of the loom has especially tight necks) and I have found a very flattering cut on me, which I have been using on all of my blank shirt (square neck, scoop back, that way I can show off my tattoo. The neckline on this one didnt come out right, and the shirt itself is really long.
I am thinking about fabric painting lower and then hemming up, but I think I like having the band of zombies.
I was inspired by all of these zentangle posts lately.. I have done a few in the past, but I am going back to school this fall (after 6 years - i am super nervous) and I want my supplies to be unique to me.
I basically drew the collage on the planner cover and then onto tracing paper and used carbon transfer paper to cut out each piece of hair.
If you know anything about the White Stripes, they only wear red white and black. I tried to make all of the strands be one of these three, though Meg's hair has a bit of flesh color (it was all from a tattoo mag)
It is also a little confusing, I have a red and white striped decoration in the back - it makes meg's look a bit weird. Busy, if you will.
