A year or two ago I was commissioned to do a stencil of a Schnauzer in a propaganda style similar to the kind of stuff Obey did. Because of the way it came together I needed to use a lot of layers and the paint got thick and heavy and I was never really happy with it (not that I'm ever particularly happy with anything I produce). Anyway I thought at the time I would revisit it, try again but this time a little more in my style and as 2014 is the year I catch up and finish old projects here is a few shots of the finished cut stencils.
2014 has seen a good start to the sketchbook. Gonna collaborate with Miss Wah on one of these books (I think she likes my cactus)...although after counting 10 metres of paper in one book I'm thinking I've bitten off more than I can chew. Anyway here are some shots of the sketchbook in progress...all done with Posca and Sharpies.
Still drawing on these cardboard bricks, they're a nice handy size and take Posca ink well. Some of these are for Free Art Friday gigs in Walsall and Cheltenham. Need to get them posted asap and move on to the next project.
This is a shout out for Paper Cloud who was kind enough to send me some supplies for my next art project and a little piece of free art. You can follow Paper Cloud on Twitter @papercloud1
More on the art project later...
Where I live we get a lot of JW's knocking on the door. I like their literature, makes for a good canvas. Didn't mean for it to look so evil, it's just how it turned out...
I got the idea from a brilliant article in Colossal. Artist was Myriam Dion.
I'm part of a team who help administrate the Free Art Friday page on Facebook. I don't do enough to update the page but chip away at the posts every now and then. I'm pleased with this though, its a new cover picture made up of some of the free art that has been given away recently.
Page admins are Free Art Friday veterans Los Dave and My Dog Sighs and more recently Lynn Blasey and Shell Bateman.
Here are the pictures that I used...thanks everyone, hope you don't mind me using your photos.
