I went over all 4 of these drawings today and whited-out any mistakes. I probably missed a few so I'm gonna over it again tomorrow. Besides that, they're done. They're gonna go in frames but I want to take some hi-res photos of them before framing them to make prints later. The original plan was to show these at my exhibit at the SJSU/Martin Luther King Library, which would have ran thru May and June but was canceled due to the Coronavirus. I'm hoping there's not a 2nd wave, now that things are reopening, so I can look for a place to hang my work for a future art show. Fingers crossed! I think I'm gonna try and knock out one more piece this size, if not more, while I stay SIP.
Now that I'm happy with my last draft I've started laying down the pencils on the actual piece. The final piece will be slightly different than the last draft and much bigger. The original plan was to just make prints but I'll probably make a t-shirt out of this which will require me to redraw it again and make some more tweaks. I can't wait to be done with this so I can start working on more pieces like this.
Remember that large drawing a started a few weeks ago? Of course not.
I started inking a large (18" x 24") drawing without a sketch and or solid idea of what it should look like at the end. Naturally I got stuck and let it sit for a few weeks (bottom pic) till I had time to sit, stare and think about the piece for a while. Today I took a picture & printed a copy (top pic) of what I had so far. I sketched some new lines with pencil and redrew some lines with a pen. I'm liking how it's coming along. I might make prints of this later if/when I finish.
Stay tuned for more wippity wip goodness...
