It's been a hugely busy month, and I'm trying to keep up with everything. So here's another little glimpse at what I've been doing at college ... loads of experimenting in my sketchbook. Here are a few pages where I'm playing around with watercolour and masking tape, working on different ways of perceiving self-identity, for my neuroscience project:
Striving for a loose, fragmented background to reflect the loss of memory and lack of self-identity experienced in the short story/case study that I've decided to illustrate. Still a long way to go, I'm afraid. But it's a great feeling just trying out different ways of expressing disconnections.
Meanwhile we've begun learning to print on textiles and I'm having a wonderful time mark-making and printing onto calico ... I started off tentatively, using fabric inks and oil pastels:
After which I got into the swing of things and enjoyed myself:
Everything I'm doing recently is just so different from anything I've done before that I love it. Not that it's either better or worse, it's a learning process and that's exactly what I needed to do, learn and add some depth to my own creative perception. It feels absolutely right.
Wishing you a wonderfully creative week. Cheers.
