I can’t draw from my head. I don’t like to transcribe from 2d. If I don’t want the design to be totally predictable then I have to do a little set design.
One day I’ll learn how to fake the “modeling”, but for now if I want dramatic light or perspective, I pretty much have to create it. This barbola screen was the easy part, but this weekend I’ll be working on making a movable 3d swan armature.
First a sketchThen the 7″x7″ plate dimensions
Then layers of ink on the plate, going through the press
Two variations of the same design; a color studyNot sure where to take it from here?
Sketch, scan, flip, trace, paint, print, re-print. I hope it’s not a boring print…better play some good music in the background.
This is the rough draft of this year’s McKenna Memorial 5k T Shirt design. Due date: this weekend.
