studies for a collaborative project…

these are some rough sketches of a collaboration project I’m doing with Sarah Manson from Ireland, they are still only in their beginning states.

Works from last year… they needed more recognition.

Below are a series of images that were from last semester final project, however most of my new images are drawn from all my previous works and they never got the attention they deserved. They are primarily drawings in colored pencil and the absence of information contrasted with a graphic web was what I was truly working towards.The first image was from a series of drawings based off the idea of pods. The images after are all different renderings of the same idea. The round object represented the remains of something that had broken down/decayed and was being pulled together by the web which was the interconnecting force among the pieces, like a life line.

this image is not completed in this photograph once I photograph it again I will update the image.

Shape development and experimentaiton.

These images are somewhat of an adventure for me I don’t really have too much in my head before I start it is all about finding the image within the grey tones.

Im currently working on a etching based off aspects of this drawing. The drawing itself is somewhat of an experiment forĀ  me trying to see how different styles play off eachother.

new shapes and forms…

Since I’ve been working on complete tonal images I have had such a desire to draw something that is a bit more graphic and less defined. Thus the images bellow developed. The shapes evolved while working on a collaboration project and have started to tell their own story!

I’ve been really interested in line quality and the way shades of grey are used within an image.

This is the most recent version of this piece.

I wanted to be able to work larger while not getting to precious with the work so I’ve been doing a few images that are on a heavy duty craft paper which allows me to work as large as I want this is about 4 feet tall currently.

This was the initial image to have these circular shapes and I love it but it wont be around much longer, this is one of the pieces from the collaboration and I have handed it back to Nicole for her to do her layer. Sad face.
