11  cult of converse monotype in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by saintvier on: October 11, 2009 10:28:11 AM
I'm taking a print survey class right now and we're working on monotypes atm. On Thursday our professor surprised us with an 'experiment' unrelated to the main monotype project: He split us into groups of four and gave us the theme 'shoes' and about 2.5 hours to come up with either one or two monotypes that used at least 3 techniques between them. We spent a lot of time brainstorming! First we thought we could xerox all of our shoes for use in gum arabic transfers, and one of my group members suggested we do a diptych, like the Cult of the Virgin diptychs. She was wearing converse, so I suggested we use the converse symbol as a halo, and it sort of spiraled from there.

Our print was 4 runs and used dark field, arabic gum transfer, and monotype drawing techniques. It's 11x15, I think. I drew the Virgin. Sorry for the cell phone photos!

We thought we wouldn't finish in time, but we were actually the first to finish, about 5 minutes before the deadline! We all agreed we couldn't handle Project Runway or anything like that!

12  Fall Out Boy stenciled shirt in Stenciling: Completed Projects by saintvier on: March 29, 2009 04:31:15 AM
My first stencil! It was a lot easier than I expected, too. I stenciled a shirt for a Fall Out Boy concert that I attended. The design is based off of their new video for the song America's Suitehearts & lyrics from their new album. I wanted it to look like a movie poster and incorporate more lyrics, but I couldn't get the stencil to work for text that small. I might add them in with fabric marker, but I don't like the contrast between the other parts I did with fabric marker and the paint.

I used a freezer paper stencil, spray-on fabric paint, and a little bit of bleach.


The last parts didn't even have 48 hours to dry before the shirt was cruelly pressed against my purse and the barrier, and some paint came off on my (super cheap black Primark) purse. Note to self: In future, don't leave things off to the last minute.

13  Nevermore--lino block print in Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects by saintvier on: September 19, 2008 10:25:53 AM
I made this in an art class a few years ago. It's on a 6x9 linoleum block, cut with speedball tools.

I'm trying to come up with something for new blocks, as I finally located a place to get cheap supplies, but everything I mock up is a little too detailed.

14  panic at the disco shoes [img heavy] in Shoes: Completed Projects by saintvier on: September 15, 2008 07:56:21 PM
I recently became a huge fan of the band Panic at the Disco, and was inspired by their Honda Civic Tour and their second album, Pretty. Odd., to decorate a pair of shoes.

I used Keds and fabric markers. Before each set of pictures is the quote or image that inspired. Panic used a lot of the same imagery over and over throughout the record, so there are multiple quotes for several of the pictures.

This is pretty much crossposted from their fanclub boards, if you're from over there. Hi!

HCT imagery/"tea in a garden"/"grows like fancy flowers", "weathervanes my one and lonely," "northern downpour"/"dance in the rain"/"sleep in the rain," "moths upon old scarves"

Close ups:

"When the day met the night" solar and lunar eclipses:

"if I give you this smile"/"spill unfound from a pretty mouth"/"playful lips made of yarn"/"rusted smiles"/"watermelon smiles," the moon, "floating flocks of candled swans"/"swan diving," "old crows"/"and if the birds are just hollowed words"/"don't you remember when I was a bird"

"your eyes are the size of the moon"/"tripping eyes"/"her eyes saved his life"/"when I look in her eyes," the sun, "tea in a garden," "mad as rabbits," clock gears, "the ink is running toward the page"

"she held the world upon a string"/"kite's cold strings," "bathing cod"

clouds in their various permutations, the sea in same, "feeling as good as lovers can"/"everybody kissed her"/"we were holding hands"/"she'd want to kiss you all the time"/"reinvent love"

When I'm standing with my feet together, the world on the string lines up with the string the girl's holding.

I had a lot of fun making them, and now I'm having fun wearing them.

15  Re: MORE show us your photoshop and digital art :D xx in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by saintvier on: June 28, 2007 05:20:38 PM
Digital art? I love messing around on the computer! None of these are from Oekaki boards, but do any craftsters hang out on those? If so, which ones?

This is a photo modified in PSP7:

The next 4 were made with Cinema4D, a 3D rendering and animating program, for a class I took last semester:

This wasn't an assignment, I was just playing with their default human.

A homework assignment with textures.

Again, just playing around--this time with lighting.

The scene for my final project. Unfortunately, I was forced to get rid of a lot of the textures and some of the lighting before the render farm could handle it.

16  Art Nouveau watercolor in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by saintvier on: June 25, 2007 05:49:36 PM
My roommate's Mucha print inspired the original pencils, and then my calendar helped me pick out the background and colors.

The title is "Larkspur," after the flowers and leaves in the borders. According to http://www.aboutflowers.com/floral_b5.html, larkspur means "beautiful spirit" in the language of flowers. Google tells me that other sites disagree. Oh, well.
