aw yeah motherfucking Final Major Project
so I’ve not really been posting much on the art blog for about a year now
the blame lies in that I took a foundation course in art & design and it has taken up all of my time always and forever and now that it is finished I have no idea what to do with myself
Going off the Winchester to do Graphics after summer but until then. Idk.
But hey yeah, these are the five layered stencils that I made for my final project, and also that I was graded on (got a Distinction!! Aw yiss). My main inspiration was from the artist couple Hari & Deepti who do this kind of thing but in boxes - I’m gonna try and figure out if there’s a way to produce these in a way to sell them that isn’t framed, though, because I think it’s important that you can see the layers that make up the piece while also viewing the actual image the layers produce.
The one with the most layers is the smallest one about adventure and that had 8 layers, but the least amount of layers I used was 3. As you can see, the three pieces that were purely one colour/type of paper work best - the coloured pieces were an experiment that I had no chance to test as everything went up last minute.
The amount of problems I had in the last two weeks before the exhibition were ridiculous - literally a problem every day. i am not kidding. I came in on the morning of the exhibition and some of the lighting had fallen apart.
But it’s all done now so hurrah.
been thinking about one of my characters lately and suddenly realised how easy it would be to associate her with Athena
ANd I haven’t drawn with a tablet for at least 2 months
and I wanted to do something graphicsy so
idk might work more on this but I’m out of time whoops
What a Beast,
to sit and boil in my breast
and scar my stomach
with gnawing teeth.
What a Beast,
to use myself against me.
To use my habits
to feed it bits of bitten skin
gnawed by nervous,
A WIP of a piece for my graphics work to do with my poetry
